Supporting Your MusicHood with Interest Media filtered by Region
Muezbiz is a marketing and distribution website where local music fans can become representatives making money sharing a world of uploaded digital music, merchandise, and general seating tickets.
Muezbiz enables anyone to profit while helping content creators to do what they do best: make music.
New members can remain a fan, or easily select to become a music “Publisher” or “Representative (Retailer)” by finding the pull-down menu next to their name (at top right of screen). Once selection has been made, members are directed to their appropriate pages. All memberships are free.
As a fan there are many useful functions to enjoy, such as: directly messaging other members, very inexpensive advertsing, adding comments and replies, find local genre specific events, and even learn or teach others musical techniques. The most important is now you can buy content from a local representative.
Content on Muezbiz is member driven with uploaded videos, links to YouTube, sound files, record covers, fan photos ... whatever is appropriate. The site is a social site focused around interests, and member regions. Muezbiz is a very open door with checks and protections members can use to avoid bad content.
When selecting to become a Representative (retailer), the member is directed to a page where they define their music stores. They can have one store for each genre, up to 12 stores. Once the store is declared, Representatives easily add “Collections” of favorite artists work. When a Representative participates by conversing in their local time line, an icon appears next to their image, allowing other members to access the Representative’s store. Members can now buy digital content from local Representatives.
“Publishers” are forwarded to a page where they define “Collections” uploading music, merchandise, and general seating tickets. Collections are defined in two parts: sharable and saleable. Once a “Collection” is defined, Publishers can inform all or a specific genre Representative with one message. Representatives see a highlighted menu where they can easily search to add new collections. Publishers can have as many Collections as needed in any genre. Publishers content is available to all regions Representatives.
Copyright is essential. With Muezbiz, once a Publisher (artist) uploads their content, the site notes the time and date. This copyright date represents exact legal proof. The same applies if artists simply choose to demonstrate a musical idea within a local time line conversation. Date and time is recorded. Muezbiz does not apply any restrictions on copyrighted material once uploaded. The copyright remains with the original owner. Muezbiz will never lay claim on others copyrighted or licensed content.
Muezbiz confirms with each publisher their copyrighted material is theirs and is copyright free either through their own issuance or legally licensed, protecting the site from potential infringement conflicts.
Sharing is how music gets passed around. Starting with regional conversations, members help expand musicians publicity within their community by conversing, and sharing Collections. Sharing conversations and Collections into clubs, enables members to introduce their favorite music to the world. Participating in clubs allows members to share unique musical creations from anywhere back into their local conversations. Around the world music travels.
Events appear in regions calendars where performances are held. Musicians can now easily take control of their publicity. They can broadcast performances into a very rich calendar including YouTube links, band images, even links to other related websites, such as a ticket site. Once an event has been uploaded, it can be changed at any time. Updating events are accessed from the top menu under Archive selection. From the Archive page, members can adjust information including changing the event dates or venues, allowing them to use the same post over and over again.
The archive page, mentioned above, also allows members to change a conversations posting and move any conversation to the top of their region/genre specific page.
Who can participate?
- Music fans.
- Musicians including bands, orchestras, songwriters, recording studios, teachers, etc.
The Problem and an Answer
Muezbiz is helping relieve the expense of entering into the music market by allowing motivated fans to pickup the banner and run with it. There are a lot of promises in today’s world, most are very unrealistic. With the advent of newer do-it-yourself recording capabilities, more musicians can take advantage of the sites abilities to spread their music organically. Young bands can grow from the garage outward.
The real issue the site addresses is enabling local members to make money. Why buy from today’s huge distribution models? Now members have a choice to support someone local, a fan they might actually know.
This site is designed to help musicians. It is also designed to help local fans everywhere. What if someone famous started to upload their content? What if your neighbor could make money sharing that famous individual’s Collections? Muezbiz redefines publicity, and distribution into the future with the goal to benefit many, instead of the few.
