Unlike the other platforms, Jamendo is a community-focused network that allows artists to not only make a profit off of their craft, but develop a fan base inviting supporters to both share and discuss their music, either through their widgets or the open feedback platform. Artists can make revenue various ways: ad revenue sharing, commercial uses of their music and donations (a minimum of 7 dollars). There’s even tools that allow you to monitor the traffic you’re getting to your page and from listens and downloads. In addition to your own promotional efforts, Jamendo has designed several ways to generate promotion for the artists, including jamradio, allowing your music to get played on its radio network. At least 50% of licensing fees are guaranteed to be paid back directly to artists, as well as 50% share of ad revenue.
