Our team here at Museq started with a mission: to build an affordable, easy to use, and effective system for helping music artists grow their fanbase. In a world where creativity is so accessible and it is possible for just about anyone to release their own work, the only factor that has not caught up with the times is marketing.
Every day, there is an independent artist writing what should be a hit track in the comfort of their own bedroom, yet those songs will likely never reach all the listeners it could because the artist does not have deep enough pockets to get the record its deserved recognition. There are Spotify playlisting services, blog submission platforms, and even endless Youtube tutorials to help artists get more recognition, but even still big labels spending millions on touring win out almost every time.
Why is this?
Because no robust service has ever been built with independent artists in mind! Playlisting is great for a momentary blip of succes and it is definitely fun to see your name pop up on a blog that gets little to no traffic, but how are you actually growing your fanbase?
That is where we come in. With founders who are studying to become engineers and mathematicians, we are pretty practical. That means we are far more concerned with giving you the tools to actually grow. We believe that there will come a day where it wont matter how much money you have to throw at your work.
When this happens, only the best music will prevail.
