Numusiczone helps Caribbean artists sell the latest in Bouyon, Soca, Calypso, Zouk, Compa, Kadans, Dancehall and Reggae MP3 downloads.
Artists know how to make music, but not how to do technology, landing pages, persuasive, sexy design and copy that sells. Even if they do, odds are they don’t have the time or the level of expertise that we do.
Numusiczone bundles that expertise together and help artists directly engage their fans on our download store, through social media widgets, direct sales, viral videos,etc. We'd like to be the next equivalent of a “Record Label”, but allowing artists to double their cut by selling direct to fans, making their living without signing their souls away.
We target, Caribbean visitors, comfortable buying online. Most have relocated to the US, Canada and UK, away from the Caribbean where they can’t readily find music stores with their favourite Caribbean artists.
Another big markets are Dj's, who need the latest Caribbean tracks to spin.
Looking for 2 main pages:
1. Artist page: Main functions, to sell music and get fan's email address.
Should start with large panoramic artist photo on the top, example: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/NetCom…x?pid=1189.
Artist headline, located under or nicely placed in the panoramic image: similar to the snake ad and Porsche ad here: http://www.grokdotcom.com/2009/07/2…-a-winner/
Under the headline, should be the artist top 10 song list one one side and sales message/bio on their story and why u should buy their music, on the other side, preferably split into two left and right columns
I like the top 10 song popularity visualization bars that last.fm uses.
This is what we have so far:
We'd like it to be a bit more refined and elegant, and adhering to the layout described above, and having prominent add to cart buttons, and email signups.
2. Genre song listing page.
Main function, email signup, sell music.
This is what it looks like currently: http://www.numusiczone.com/genre.ph…re=Calypso
It's a little too busy, and we want to incorporate it into a main layout similar to this: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2428…04b7_b.jpg
