TechCrunch, put up an article yesterday that just scared the crap out of everyone still living in 2006. Myspace may soon charging for streaming music. This could mean the end of music discovery as we know it and be detrimental to smaller acts. Since Myspace is still the top Google result for many acts, this could make it harder for people to discover new artists. So what do you do to get around it?
- Put another page where people can hear your music in your name. For example, if you have a web page with a streaming player put that right in your name.
- Get links for your other sites all over your site.
- Assuming Myspace doesn’t ban them, Reverb Nation, Fairtilizer and Nimbit all have players that you can embed in your Myspace page that will stream your music and offer ways to buy it!
