Rdio to pay artists $10 per new subscriber
Depressed by dismal revenue from music streaming services? Rdio has launched a new affiliate program just for artists today that pays $10 per new subscriber you refer to the service through your social graph.
“The Artist Program offers artists a way to supplement their existing revenue streams by doing what they do naturally – connecting with fans. We’re aligning our focus on social music discovery with our fundamental belief that artists deserve to get paid for their work. We view it as a significant step forward for artists, fans and streaming music.” — Drew Larner, Rdio CEO
Rdio’s Artist Program is open to any artist with an Rdio artist page and has launched in all countries that Rdio operates in. The Artist Program also includes a complementary subscription to Rdio and income generated from the program is in addition to revenue earned per streaming listener.
