Record shops. Twitter. Spotify….your music blog. Avid music fans know that some of the best ways to find new music is through the recommendation of a trusted friend, or to revel in the act of digging until you discover unknown talent. There is a new eCommerce platform out that aids in the rush of finding new music, but also provides a kickback that is beneficial to both the artist and the fan.
With increased challenges facing independent artists and authors, reKiosk –an alternative distribution solution for independent creatives–has opened its virtual doors. It’s the first socially networked, turnkey solution to offer individual creators, labels, publishers and anyone interested in promoting indie media a free and easy way to sell and market digital media.
Founded by brother and sister Aziz and Darya Isham, reKiosk allows anyone, anywhere to open an online store to sell music. Not only can artists and creators sign up to sell their own products directly, reKiosk also has a one-of-a-kind affiliate model that pays ‘reKioskers’ for every sale made from their kiosk, no matter whose product it is.
“reKiosk is a way to sell directly to your fans, and have your fans sell for you. We believe that the digital age means that writers and musicians shouldn’t have to give their products away – we’re solving the distribution crisis by creating a platform that allows anyone, anywhere, to open a digital storefront and sell what they love,” says co-founder, Aziz Isham.
reKiosk is wrapped in an ethos geared towards promoting independent media: Everyone is on a level playing field, no ads and no special treatment for big companies. Searching is curated by people, not algorithms, to help you find great products and share them across integrated social media platforms.
