3 New IHM Services To Help You Make It Count In 2018

make it count in 2018 with indiehitmaker Our goal for the New Year is to help more artists make it count in 2018. We’re bringing new features and services online to help you build stronger momentum plans and find faster paths to success.

“My personal new year’s resolution is to help artists Make It Count in 2018. We are rolling out three new services in the first quarter alone that will resolve big pain points for artists in 2018, aggregate your music cleanly, make all your sales count on Billboard and have a streaming strategy. We can now help with all three.”

Bram Bessoff IHM Founder and President
Here’s what you can expect to see coming in the near future as an indiehitmaker artist to help you make it count in 2018. Not already an IHM artist? Now is the perfect moment to join now.  

1. Indiehitmaker Digital Distribution Services

At IHM, we believe that a digital distribution service (usually called an aggregator) should adhere to three critical standards. It should be artist-friendly, clean licensed, and rights protected. Unfortunately, many popular services don’t. No matter who you use, always be sure to read your user agreements. Or better yet, call us. IHM will be rolling out new ways to help independent artists digitally distribute their music safely, easily and affordably to help you make it count in 2018.


2. Indiehitmaker Payment Solutions

IHM Dropkick artists will soon have access to a full suite of payment solutions at no extra cost! New features include a turn-key online store to sell merch & music from your own website and social media, a point-of-sale (POS) app for live shows & mobile retail along with new innovative ways to use video and advertising to sell more while automatically reporting every sale to Soundscan and BuzzAngle. IHM artists will receive a direct notification when these services come online first quarter of 2018. Not already a member? Join now and get these services free to help you make it count in 2018.


3. Indiehitmaker Streaming Services

In 2018, it will be more important than ever to have a streaming strategy, especially if you want to chart on Billboard. In the upcoming weeks, IHM will be launching its very own streaming services exclusively for IHM artists to make your streams count. Dropkick artists will no longer have to use a third party streaming site and can rest assured their streams will be reported to SoundScan and BuzzAngle without paying for pro accounts or being accepted as premier partners.  This will be a major factor in helping our artists build the right momentum to make it count in 2018.

Be the first to get these new services along with the IHM release plan, Dropkick music delivery platform and reporting services when you become an IHM Dropkick artist. Learn more before you join here.
