CLG Distribution recently added a partnership with YouTube to their digital distribution offerings. Their digitally distributed artists and labels are now able to reach not only the traditional digital outlets (iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody, etc.), but a growing number of untapped, burgeoning sources as well.
The fact is that people are watching hundreds of millions of videos a day on YouTube. YouTube is the number one video site on the internet and the fourth largest internet destination in the world, attracting 300 million unique video viewers across the world (according to Nielsen’s NetRatings, December 2008). In addition, YouTube is the number two search engine in the world after Google and before Yahoo (according to comScore, October 2008)!
Honestly, if you’re not creating video content for YouTube you’re missing the boat. Information from a leading digital content provider controlling in excess of 25,000 tracks reveals:
- In January 2010, the ratio of revenue from iTunes to YouTube was 25:1
- In December 2010, the ratio grew exponentially from 25:1 to 2:1
- In 12 months, YouTube streaming revenue grew to fifty cents on the dollar in relation to YouTube
- Every day on iTunes, a few thousand people buy their content on iTunes
- Every day on YouTube, a few million people stream the same content on YouTube
Quite simply, YouTube is a VERY important retailer!
The fact is that, by your hand or someone else’s, your content is likely available on YouTube and, at this time, you are failing to profit from this content. As the trends continue to move away from the purchase of music toward the streaming of music, you don’t want to be left in the dark. Few digital distributors can plug you into the monstrosity known as YouTube in order to capitalize on your content. But CLG Distribution can.
