As noted separately in a press release this morning, FargoTube and Music2Q, a service that connects independent musicians with potential licensees in the film, television and video-game industries, are launching a strategic partnership.

This is important both for FargoTube and for the independent music community because Music2Q, like FargoTube, represents a growing revenue segment at a time when traditional revenue streams are narrowing.  In this new environment, musicians have to be scrappier and more business-savvy. Helping them reach new fans and generate income in this environment are fundamental goals for both of our companies. Joining forces allows FargoTube artists to tap into the lucrative business of licensing music for movies, television and electronic games.

Some specifics of our partnership:

  • A free subscription to the www.music2q.com website, valued at $120, to be awarded to a randomly selected finalist at each Open Mic Monday held at Eddie’s Attic, the Atlanta area’s top venue for singer-songwriters and acoustic music;
  • Discounted subscription rates to Music2Q for all musicians using the FargoTube platform; includes a revenue-sharing arrangement for all business driven through FargoTube.
  • Music2Q becoming an affiliate to assist FargoTube in expanding into the film industry by leveraging its numerous connections.

As you probably know by now, FargoTube gives independent artists their first opportunity to profit directly from their creative works in the setting of a social network. Musicians, filmmakers, remote instructors and other artists can upload their content free of charge and then make it available on a per-view, per-media file and/or subscription basis, setting prices and receiving 70 percent of the resulting revenue.
