Get your music on Shazam, the world’s most popular music identification app!
According to our friends at Digital Music News, 7.2% of all download sales in 2012 were generated after a person used the Shazam app on their mobile device or iPad to identify a song. Then they immediately clicked over to an affiliated download store and purchased the track.
That’s $300 million in digital download sales (a figure which is projected to double by next year); and as DMN points out, those are only the sales that can be directly tracked (it doesn’t include folks who ID’d a song with Shazam, made mental note, and then purchased it later). If 1 out of 14 paid downloads begins with Shazam, shouldn’t your music be included in their database?
