We can now send artist's touring and sales data directly to labels, agencies and management companies.
This is a good thing. Here's why:
The bottom line is any professional who is considering working with an artist or band will want to know how that band is performing. This not only means social media traction, but more importantly it means how much money the band currently generates and where the band has toured and established a fan base. By using Artist Growth on a regular basis to track tour revenue, expenses and merchandise sales, you create a pretty clear picture of what your business looks like.
Recently, we announced ACCEL, our program that any AG premium subscriber can opt their artist and/or band into and voluntarily send this information to over 150+ labels, agents and managers each month. This is the future of A&R.
We've gotten requests from people to explain more about what ACCEL is, and why we created it, so here it goes:
We created ACCEL so that artists who are working hard playing shows, connecting with fans, selling merch, and building their businesses can share the results of their hard work with agents, managers, and indie and major labels. ACCEL is the only way to distribute your data directly with this many music industry professionals.
Here's how it works:
You enter and track all of your ticket sales, tips, guarantees, and merch sales in Artist Growth
You 'opt-in' to the ACCEL program on the settings page of your AG account by clicking a button.
We pull all your data together and deliver it directly to over 150 managers, label reps, and booking agents every month.
It's that simple. We are here to help artists make a living playing music. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to be part of your success!
