Sizzling Summertime Promotion Celebrates New CD-R Availability - Latest 'Hit' Adds Even More Flexibility to the Indie Music World -
SAN FRANCISCO, May 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The quickly growing Vitaminic network of music sites around the world now offers its member musicians and record labels around the world the added ability to sell their music online in CD format as well as in its popular legal MP3 downloads. To celebrate the newest offering, Vitaminic USA is giving away Fender Stratocaster guitars and Samsung Yepp MP3 players to U.S. artists, bands and listeners who take advantage of the music offerings at Vitaminic.com.
"Vitaminic, thanks to the brand-new CD-burning service online, now allows artists and record companies to create their own albums and sell it around the world -- at zero cost to their bottom line," notes Vitaminic SpA CEO Gianluca Dettori, who will be discussing the company's innovative development strategies in Europe at next week's International Network 2000 in New York City. "Artists select the pieces they want to insert in their album, and fix a street price for their CD. Vitaminic takes care of the rest. Once the customer sends an order for a specific album, a CD is burnt both in CD and MP3 formats and then shipped directly to the consumer."
Vitaminic is Europe's foremost web community for the promotion and distribution of music in digital format. The Company currently operates eight sites around the world, with seven in Europe (Italy, Great Britain, Germany, France, Spain, Holland and Sweden) and one in the USA. Vitaminic's network of sites allows Internet users to explore a vast catalogue of music from more than 250 musical categories, to contact artists and other music fans, and to purchase tracks in digital format -- both MP3 and CD. Both artists and record labels alike can use Vitaminic to establish a direct relationship with fans, creating their own homepages on the site in order to promote and sell music in digital format.
The Company, which currently has offices in eight countries, was founded in April 1999 by Gianluca Dettori, formerly General Manager of Lycos Bertelsmann, Italy, together with Franco Gonella and Adriano Marconetto, both having substantial experience in the field of marketing and communication. To-date, Vitaminic's sites have generated an average monthly total of over 6,500,000 page-views, 1,000,000 audiostream requests and 800,000 downloads. Since operations began, more than 200,000 registered users have accessed the Company's sites.
The summertime promotion begins 29 May 2000. More details are available online on the Vitaminic USA site, located at (www.vitaminic.com/specials/player.shtml).
