Upbeat Music Sales Increases with Innovation & Cross Selling

History Shadows an Upbeat Music Sales Forecast – NYTimes.com.

There is even more to come.  It would be great if we would see more integration of Music Streaming Shops with Music magazines for example.  I use Amazon MP3 on my Samsung S3, and the store is fairly decent, but I would like to click on an artist in the store, and not only see what they have for sale, but am able to see more, such as:

  • when and where are there next concerts, and partner or become a ticket retailer and sell tickets to that concert
  • allow the user to see an array of recent articles from music periodicals, and based on the business model of the periodical allow the user to read the first 10 articles for free, but after that they need to subscribe to that periodicals music news, or have a collective fee, and disperse the margin for the collating of the music news
  • This can happen on the current phones, phablets, or tablets, and you may see a lot more cross pollination of ‘music sales’ as an industry as a whole, which will allow this particular sector to grow.
  • Hey, even partner with Ebay, if a certain artist has put up their guitar for auction, for charity or otherwise, auction tickets, backstage passes, or more.

The list seems endless.
