The Kerchoonz website is now live!The site is an initiative by musicians to make listening to online music or watching videos a fun experience while earning musicians royalties.The site also aims at availing music free to the site guests! Yes, free legal music is now available online !
The site concept was conceived and founded by Indiana Greg and Ian Morrow back in 2006 with the aim of developing a social network platform that would allow the unlimited free flow and exchange of information, art, music, entertainment etc. That dream recently came into fruition when the site was launched !
Kerchoonz pays the particular artist each time a user listens or downloads music ! It is indeed set to be the hottest music download site in the Internet and the next great thing after Facebook. I have just signed up and it was so easy! The site does not require you to engage in a process of verifying email...etc but has a simple sign up process!
The philosophy behind the site is particularly amazing and i would encourage you to sign up instead of illegally downloading music and ending up with computer viruses from illegitimate sites and/ or depriving musicians of their royalties! That's a risk that no one needs to take from now henceforth, and this i state notwithstanding these being a sponsored post ! Kenyan artists specifically may want to join up this platform if they want to get paid for their music online.And the join up process is so simple.
What i am eager and about to learn is how to use their ingenious widget called a Kwigget. A kwigget is a customizable user mini profile widget that displays the users music, videos, blogs and links to online shops where the particular music is sold!
Interestingly one can paste the transferable code to one's own site to enable their fans and friends update on their latest content! The kwiggets come in various sizes and forms! The service is going to be great in that it allows you to display your other social network profiles from within your homepage, so you can have facebook, myspace Youtube... etc right on your kerchoonz profile.Which basically means the site is not duplicating these sites but adding value to your online experience and that is cool.
So how will they make money....through sponsored advertising ! The site seems to be constantly updated which means it will be such a cool and refreshing site. I have actually joined up and you should too.So make sure you check out the site-pronto!
