Break Into Mobile Application Market With an App by MusicTapp™
Expose Your Songs, Photos, and Videos to Millions of Smartphone Users Worldwide
Chicago, IL — Remember when “getting discovered” meant pounding the pavement, servicing demo tapes to any record company that would open its front doors? Well, the game has changed and now up-and-coming musicians can get their music in the palms of fans, radio deejays and, most importantly, record executives quicker than you can say: MusicTapp™. MusicTapp is a new, innovative platform for celebrities and independent music artists to reach a worldwide audience on their phones with mobile apps.
iPhone and Android applications are no longer the sole providence of major entertainers, large retailers, and international companies. Now, independent bands and musicians can create an app that will share prime mobile real estate on smartphone home screens with apps from the likes of Google, Yelp, Pandora, and other internationally recognized companies. “MusicTapp specializes in app development for independent artists,” explains co-founder Vincent E. Norment. “But we also work with actors, athletes, models, comedians, nightclub owners, and others in the entertainment business. All of these people need to tap into the power of mobile applications,” he explains.
The numbers back up Norment’s claims. As of December 2010, 31 percent of mobile phone users owned smartphones — a group that is expected to comprise the majority of mobile phone users by 2011, according to a Nielsen report. Furthermore, Nielsen predicts that smart phones sales will reach $2.5 billion by 2015, and that mobile smartphones are the hottest, fastest growing, and most direct way to expose millions of people to a new song, club, or entertainment personality.
With a customized MusicTapp app, musicians have a new, effective platform for promoting their music. Got a new song? Add the song or clip and MusicTapp will update the application with the new tune. Fans don’t have to wait to buy them on iTunes, hear them on the radio, download them online, or play them on YouTube; they can listen instantly and for as long as they want. Having a MusicTapp app means fans don’t have to be anywhere near a computer to hear, see, or know about the latest and greatest from their favorite entertainers.
Creating an app does not have to be overwhelming, thanks to MusicTapp. The service allows entertainers to provide fans with interactive applications for Android, iPhone, iPad, and iPod platforms that allow them to access music, videos, photos, social media, bios, and tour schedules. After purchasing, MusicTapp will provide access for customers to upload app content. MusicTapp’s professional app designers will build an app and submit it for approval. “One thing that sets MusicTapp apart from the competition is the promotional aspect,” says co-founder Antonio Wells, who explains that other companies don’t include any marketing services in their pricing. After editing and revision, MusicTapp will launch the app in various marketplaces, including Google Android Market and Apple iTunes App Store, and post an app profile page on MusicTapp.com. Apps built by MusicTapp will be offered for free as MusicTapp is a platform to help artists promote their music. “We’re reaching a huge market by offering MusicTapp at no charge to the end user – the consumer. Because of their new and large presence in the mobile music audience, the monies generated from consumers for the budding artist should far exceed the initial cost of the application,” says Norment.
