With every unique business needing their own specific music requirements how can Melody Pods be assured of making the best of its services for your business today?
Melody Pods has served thousands of businesses with music internationally. From single roaming professionals who need music for their therapeutic, fitness or wellbeing services up to large networks of multi locations that require a constant brand music style. But to serve each equally well we decided to break down some of the key brick walls that have been used to shape how background music services have traditionally worked, and how they were licensed and paid for.
We have enabled low energy foot print technology to deliver and play music in your business. We have reduced the reliance on a consistent bandwidth for streaming music throughout the full and long working day. We have leveraged the benefits of online browsers as a way for clients to manage the choices they make around the music they want and when they want that music.
Melody Pods has created a background music ecosystem where clients can choose what they want to hear and when. We have broken away from the mindset that states the only way to economically serve music for business is by grouping clients together and playing them the same music. Our systems allow our clients to make a choice on the music that will highlight how unique their business is, as they will know best themselves.
We have discarded old school licensing silos that state very complex ways to price for a business location. Forget seats, covers, rooms, floor spaces and any other mad way that only makes pricing more costly to understand let alone price correctly for.
Melody Pods ensures your investment is light on time, light on capital costs and light on ongoing fees. We can do this because our costs are low and our artists are keen and very able to produce the right music to evoke the appropriate moods for your clients.
So Melody Pods has broken down some pretty major elements that has restricted the creativity of businesses to use music in their businesses in the way they want to. That’s why Melody Pods provides the most flexible and friendly way to get music working hard for your business today.
So What is ‘In-Store Music’
In store music is a term that covers the use of music in commercial environments and not just retail environments. You probably use music in your location already through a CD player, the radio or even an mp3 player.
In store music has over the years become quite a science in terms of matching music to the mood and ambience businesses want to present customers entering their customer environments. Just like music in advertising, the music has a significant yet mainly subconscious impact on the connection a customer has with your brand. So even without considering your business products and services there is a lot to consider in terms of colours and audio to match your target customer markets.
Many in store music services today offer up complex services where auditioning and curating music collections based on understanding your business. This can be costly and prohibitive to some businesses. Additionally, on top of the cost of paying for the music service you will need to pay for performing and composition rights for the use of the music. This fee is either paid directly to the performing rights societies or via your in store music service supplier.
However, with the increased need for musicians to find new ways to create a living as the traditional record company dream is far from many, artists are marketing their music more directly across the web. Additionally, with the lower costs of production due to new technologies that mean not all music needs the investment of costly recording studios and engineering time, the availability of affordable music with no performing rights society collection agencies involved is becoming possible.
What is ‘Royalty Free Music?
For many years ‘royalty free music’ has been used ambiguously to mean, “you dont have to pay me a regular payment for using my music, but you still need to pay my performing rights society regularly when you pay my music and other artists music in your business environment”.
We at Melody Pods think this is unnecessarily ambiguous. There is no need to make ‘royalty free’ mean anything other than ‘free from ALL royalties’. So for us, ‘royalty free’ means you pay us a fixed monthly fee to play Melody Pods music and you dont need to pay anyone else ever again. Of course if you still also want to pay a society for use of other music then that great for you and the world of artists everywhere however our music is able to stand on its own and will cover many businesses needs for background music in business environments.
Why Bother With Royalty Free Music When There Is So Much Commercially Available Music Out There?
As surprising as it may sound, that commercial music you may have thought was free, via the radio, or on your CD or mp3 you thought you had already paid for, all still require an additional payment for the use within a business environment. The costs of this is high considering the share that eventually is passed to a portion of artists.
Purchasing an annual license for playing commercially available music is expensive and only a fraction of the funds collected tend to be passed to artists since there are high costs involved in collecting royalties in addition to the high costs of large staff salaries. But artists had little choice, until now.
You may have discovered you need to pay for a license when you received a surprise phone call or letter from an agency requiring you to pay for a annual license for the privilege of playing this music.
We understand this and made our objective to provide a much simpler and more affordable way to play good music in your business. So we use lower costs of production music that is actually in most cases designed for use as background music from professional artists who make a living from creating and recording new music and licensing directly to customers or close to customers via Melody Pods.
With a Melody Pod app in your hands you can now make the playing of music for business really simple to source, and subscribe to at very affordable rates that are a fraction of the costs of traditional performing and compositional royalty licenses worldwide.
