  • Can Music Retail Be Saved? - Jay Frank's Prescription - Digital Music Insider
    same problem as above Onerous terms are preventing new revenue streams Ask for reasonable terms and watch royalties increase with volume 3 MARKET MUSIC AGAIN The music biz got out of the 1949 funk by marketing High fidelity Rallying behind a legal marketing concept and properly funding it should pay dividends Marketing clearly drives sales As an example while download sales have flattened this year the sales slowdown has more to do with the diversification of products in iTunes than anything else Space devoted to music is now focused on apps movies and TV shows Less marketing equals less sales Marketing does drive sales and can t be left in the dust Final Tak e I think Jay is onto something here and makes insightful points Think about how dull the physical music retail store has become for most Americans If you have been in a Best Buy Wal Mart or Target recently the dearth of creativity and energy is palpable These retailers pale compared to Tower Records or Virgin Megastores I have often wondered how much healthier the business might be if there were even ten cities in the U S with Amoeba Music type physical stores Next let s think about the Digital Music retail scene While many consumers are happy with iTunes iTunes is in several businesses besides music Is there really a second high profile digital choice on fans lips What if there were a real viable competitor to iTunes creating excitement and innovating around digital music Perhaps that competitor is already here in the form of streaming based companies like RDIO Mog Rhapsody etc Will a combination of a smart phone explosion and new label thinking finally invigorate these models Perhaps it will take label desperation to take the risks needed to fuel a rebound
