Upcoming Recording Artist Sara Skinner Joins Monkeybars
Pop-Rock Singer/Songwriter Set to Debut First Album on Site that Rewards Artists for Their Talent and Fans for Their Support.
Monkeybars, a social marketplace to discover, buy and share innovative content, today officially welcomes recording artist Sara Skinnner to the new social community that enables artists and fans to earn meaningful royalties by recommending a song, film or book to their friends online – something most people already do daily. Ms. Skinner has three songs currently available for sale in Monkeybars, and will debut her first album on the site in late February.
As an independent artist, Skinner has personally experienced the pain associated with trying to distribute her music and show appreciation for her to her loyal fans. Prior to Monkeybars, to distribute her music, Skinner had to choose between giving it away for free, or pay the majority of her profits to various middlemen. (Some of the most popular internet music sites pay the original artist only a fraction of a penny.) Monkeybars introduces the first e- and m-commerce platform that enables artists to monetize and distribute content directly while rewarding their fans with a portion of the royalties for sharing and recommending it. On Monkeybars, Skinner will be able to directly control all aspects of her career. She is responsible for choosing what to make available; setting the price and rewards on her own, unique content; and interacting with her fans and getting their feedback all through the site.
“I love all of my fans, and it’s really awesome that now I can actually reward them for promoting my music online instead of just saying ‘thanks’.” said Skinner. “Launching a music career is super stressful, but Monkeybars is the perfect avenue for me to promote my music to my fans while motivating them to want to share it as well. I also love how I can connect and interact personally with my fans on Monkeybars and receive all of their feedback that will make me a better artist.”
How Monkeybars Works
Monkeybars is not just a new social network or a new commerce site. Rather, it complements existing relationships on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc., to allow users to make more meaningful recommendations to their friends. After joining Monkeybars, content providers can grow their community and upload their own unique content—including music, film, e-books, and art—for sale in the Monkeybars Market and set the price points for each piece of content, as well as the monetary amount of royalties the artist wishes to “reward” the community. Then, for each purchase through the Monkeybars Social Graph Royalty Program™, the network of fan recommendations that led to the purchase is financially rewarded. Consumers joining the Monkeybars community can tap their existing social networks to recommend the content they find most interesting. Artists who join Monkeybars can build their community, connect directly with fans like never before, upload and sell their content and reward their fans.
“Sara’s music is wonderful, and it’s amazing that someone as talented as her still has trouble spreading her infectious voice,” said Monkeybars Founder, Robert Hayden. “Monkeybars was created exactly for people like her; she deserves all the credit for her work, and her fans should be able to share in the joy with her.”
