  • How much does a musician cost?
    First and foremost - No setup costs! To activate Musican an active subscription is required. You have two subscription routes at your disposal: * With a monthly payment (NIS 35 per month, charged automatically for a year) * With an annual fee (24 NIS per month, billed once a year automatically) Besides the fixed payment for the subscription, there are additional one-time payments for clearing fees for your income and for combining songs in the music. The costs are detailed below: Important to know: a single page remains yours and available forever. If the subscription to the musician ends and becomes unavailable, the single page remains yours and active as long as you wish. On the other hand, a song incorporated into your music without a single page will be available for listening as long as the site is active. When your subscription ends or is cancelled, your musician will become inactive but will "remember" your songs (even if they don't have a standalone single page) so you can renew your subscription and the songs will still be yours at no extra charge. You can purchase a subscription here.
  • Is it possible to connect my own domain to the musician?
    Unfortunately, there is no such possibility
  • What happens if I want to cancel the music subscription?
    Cancelling the subscription through the website will cause the automatic renewal to stop. The service will continue to be available until the end of the next billing period and then it will stop automatically. For example: for a musician with a monthly subscription who requested cancellation, the subscription will continue to be active until the next billing date arrives at the end of the current month In exceptional cases such as canceling an annual subscription during the first month, it is recommended that you contact us to coordinate an earlier cancellation and a proportional refund. Please note: * A monthly subscription is automatically renewed every month for one year only, after which you must purchase another subscription. * An annual subscription is renewed once a year until cancellation is requested by the customer. * The site administrators reserve the right to decide whether there will be a refund or not.

  • How do you send a song to the radio?
    The common method today is through one of Linkton's distribution services, Turntable or Mason. The aforementioned companies package the releases (song / album) for you on a landing page called 'press kit', where the lyrics, credits, relevant links, graphics, and of course the song file (MP3) appear. They send this landing page in a broadcast message to all the relevant broadcasting stations. It should be noted that they do not promote the song in any way, and the significant push is done in the next step through public relations or by sending emails to broadcasters and editors personally (self-publicity). In Muziken you can purchase similar distribution pages with advanced features and connectivity that are not available anywhere else. You will have to send the pages yourself to the broadcast stations relevant to your music via email. It is advisable to attach the communication file and the MP3 file of your master to the email. We will be happy to help - talk to us to get email addresses of relevant stations for your distribution.
  • How much does a single page cost?

  • How much does an album page cost?

An album page comes with up to 20 songs that are not standalone single pages. You can purchase single sheets and link them to the album, or purchase slots for additional songs (10 NIS per song) if you have more than 20 songs in the album.
  • How can you prevent people from getting to unreleased releases?
    When editing your song details you must enter a release date. If the release date is future, the page will be automatically hidden from search engines and will not be displayed in Google results (an album page refers to its single with the latest release date attached to it). In addition, there is an option to activate the "hide from search engines" switch and continue blocking the page for scanning by Google. Any visitor who has the direct link will still be able to enter the page. Share it responsibly. Note: Google's bots crawl the site once every few weeks. A page that was scanned into the search results did not easily get out of there, and in any case it is very likely that it will not be displayed in Google results immediately on the day of its distribution. When using the switch hide the page from search engines it can take from a few days to a few weeks until there is an actual effect.

  • How much does it cost to distribute the music to the digital stores?
    Uploading to the digital stores via the Musican website is free of charge for uploading and without payment of subscription fees (upload without financial risk) The only conditions for uploading - only the owner of the master rights can upload the music, and the master rights will be registered with the Phil company for the purpose of collecting master royalties for you. Phil collects 20% of the master royalties, and the musician 10% of the balance (28% in total).< /p> The master royalties are not related to the royalties received from the digital stores. The Musican website transfers to you the royalties you deserve from the stores minus the operating expenses of the Phil company + 10% that the Phil company collects, plus the 10% collected by Musican. In practice, the artist receives 72.9% (average rate, different between stores) of the streaming royalties after all distribution expenses and payment to the musician.
  • Is your distribution direct to stores or through "middlemen"?"
    Muziken works with and through the Phil company. Distribution through the Phil is done to YouTube directly and to the other stores through another aggregator. This distribution has a significant advantage that is reflected in the number of stores to which your song will be distributed, and in updating the song to new stores that will open later (as happened recently with Instagram Music).
  • Who do I contact to receive service regarding my distribution?
