For the first time ever, YOU
and everyone else can be
part of the music business!
WHAT IS GIDEEN?GIDEEN is a new music/tech venture, based in Los Angeles, which is creating a completely new secondary marketplace for 98% of the world's valuable yet undiscovered music.
HOW IT WORKS
For the first time in history, anyone can buy themselves
into future music revenue streams for as little as $29 (“gift size”), as well as
gift the selected song plus a portion of the future music income of this song
to friends and family using Gideen.
- Music makers discover the Gideen website and can upload their music for no charge.
2. Gideen automatically jumpstarts promotions and distributes music to all
3. Anyone can buy in for future music income.
4. Anyone that wants to use music for film, videos, etc. can license it from an all-you-can-eat simple model in less than 2 minutes - worldwide rights cleared!
How can I make money with Gideen?
Let’s say you donate $25 for the future music income of one song.
Now, there are 2 main ways:
1. When the song gets licensed, you receive 1/3 of the upfront licensing fee.
An example: A filmmaker wants to use this music in his or her film and acquires a “lifetime” license for this song. The licensing price is US $ 999.00, set by the music maker who has uploaded the song. You get 1/3 = US $ 333.00 as your portion of this revenue stream.
2. In addition, the film might be screened on the big screen or broadcasted on TV or uploaded to multiple social media platforms. Gideen collects all possible back end revenues, e.g. streaming, performance or advertisement royalties.
These revenues are coming in from multiple countries over time and you receive 1/3 of the collected amount.
WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT MUSIC INCOME
When music is played in TV shows, radio, film, video games,
personal videos, ringtones, streamed via YouTube, Spotify, Pandora, or sold as CDs
or digital downloads via iTunes or Amazon, and played live in concerts or shows,
various revenues are collected and distributed to the music rights owner.
Each day, many new platforms are born, such as iMusic or beatsmusic, which generate even more revenue for the music rights owners of any given song. Now, Gideen brings this income potential to everyone and you can participate.
The creators of Gideen bring 25 years of experience in the music business, and they specialize in collecting this type of music income worldwide, which guarantees that your portion of any music income will be accounted and distributed to you.
In 2013, TheTrichordist.com published a music royalty income statement from a songwriter in the United States.
The artist co-wrote a song called “Low” and holds a 40%
In just 3 months during the 4th quarter of 2012, the
song was played 179 times on SiriusXM Radio in the US, which yielded music
royalty payments of $181.94 (USD) for his 40% stake.
Let’s do the math:
100% of the song’s shares would have received $454.85 (USD), divided by 179 plays = $2.54 (USD) per play – and that’s just one radio station in one country! There are tens of thousands of radio stations worldwide.
In general, music revenues can range from a few cents to millions of dollars.
WHY GIDEEN NEEDS YOUR HELP
Since building this disruptive new platform is such a huge and complex undertaking, you can imagine that the payroll for software architects, engineers, designers and legal counsel is adding up quickly!
We’re looking to raise $10,000 here to help us finish the
Beta version of the website, which is the most crucial piece of the puzzle for
us to be able to offer Gideen as the significant music industry breakthrough that it is.
