A festival that's fun and safe for the whole family!


Updates: iTunes, Summerfest Photos & Sabor Latino/Cristo "The Rock"

We have a couple of updates to share! We are set to launch a Press Release about a new partnership between in2it international and iTunes! We are now contracted as an "Official" - iTunes Apple Associate Producer to what is reported in being "one" of only "12", Apple Producers in the world.

Most of you are already familiar with Apple/iTunes, but those of you who are not - imagine that 9O% of all music sold in the world is done so in "one" place! This is iTunes and it is true not only for music but all audio content worldwide! Every week, there are 2 Billion unique viewers in iTunes.

In addition to going through an Apple Producer (which will guarantee placement into iTunes), the only other way to be posted and considered without assurances, remains through an "Aggregate". An "Aggregate” should not be confused with a Label, simply because Labels also need to go through an Aggregate unless they too are fortunate in knowing one of the few Apple Producers.

Submissions via an Aggregate are for "consideration" only and the percentage of revenue sharing is almost foreign to those I inquire with. Other Artists have reported as much as 23 cents from every dollar, down to .O4 cents. The Apple Producer is a direct pipeline into the Apple Retail Store and Apple pays them much more than any other direct content provider. Most importantly, is that we can guarantee any Artist more than they could possibly enjoy under any current relationship they may have in place, as their Apple Producer.

For example - A record label can capture "up to" 58 cents of the dollar download. Out of those 58 cents, the label and the artist get compensated and the artist receives whatever their contract states with their label. Also, the artist usually does not receive reporting on the downloads. When going through an Apple Producer, the artist "always" receives more than the Apple Producer and they will "always" be able to view the reports on their tracks. The very best part is that they can capture up to 45 cents of every dollar that Apple receives.

Many people have heard of the Apple software application originally made available to independent artists for uploading their music. This is not the same as what is described above. Apple also offers a product called "Apple Producer" which should not be confused with what we are doing. They offer "software" which is an interface for providing audio which in turn is only for "consideration" purposes. If approved, it will only be treated in an "Aggregate" fashion. Most will notice when they read the disclaimer (that you must acknowledge), Apple tells you, there is no direct access. You must go through a Label, an Aggregate or direct. Again, "Apple Producers" (the breathing ones), are the only direct link into the store. in2it has a long standing relationship in "looking out for the musicians" they work with and this is yet another great addition of a quality service we offer our industry family!
