Build a recurring revenue
Stop running after streams you cannot control. There is one thing you can control: the quality of your relationship with your true fans. Engage with them like never before and allow them to support you directly via a monthly membership.
Stay in control
Create content because it’s what matters to you and your fans, not because it’s trendy and will help you get playlisted. Take back your power, decide what to create, and get supported for who you really are.
A unique way to engage with your fans
Set up different subscription tiers and define the exclusive rewards your fans will receive for each tier. Benefit from a personalized and direct way to interact with them to build more meaningful relationships.
For all audio creators
Music. Podcasts. Online radio stations. Audiobooks. The Fanzone is available to content creators of any kind. Build unique relations with the creators you love or get direct support from the fans who truly matter to you.
Artists and labels have no control over music access or purchase price points. Fans have to play by the rules of whichever third-party platform they use and cannot control their listening experiences beyond this level. Winamp wants to give back control to both sides of the musical equation, letting artists determine what they release to fans for how much, and allowing fans to create new, personalized listening experiences.
Today’s music scene is characterized by a direct connection between fans and creators. No matter which tools or means are used, engagement and interaction are central to building a new music hub. There are definite possibilities and also challenges in this regard, and many widely shared desires: a strong focus on audio; easy ways to share and promote tracks within a community of like-minded people; and easy interaction with fans.
Brand capital is rare, but Winamp has it. With more than 80 million people still using the Winamp player at the beginning of 2022, the company is launching the Fanzone for this existing user base, while simultaneously opening up a whole new realm of possibility for creators, as well as welcoming new fans and listeners to a more enjoyable experience of music.
User experience for both fans and creators is currently overly complex and fragmented. Winamp has already solved this problem once in the past and aims to address it again for a new musical era, by creating a single integrated place, where artists and fans can find music-centred connections and experiences in one, easy-to-navigate music app.
