“Whenever you purchase a song from a musician you get to participate in that musician's financial success."
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 3, 2010
Webceleb, Inc – the only social marketplace where you can get paid to download music, and a community geared towards discovering artists, officially launches today at http://www.webceleb.com.
The launch of this progressive music download site is turning the music industry’s traditional business model upside down by publicly declaring- we understand it’s your decision to purchase music. Webceleb addresses musicians’ online marketing and distribution problems by making the buying experience more social—while at the same time financially rewarding those who legally download music. Musicians are able to make money in real-time, retain 100% ownership of their rights, have worldwide distribution, and build a vested marketing team comprised of new and existing fans.
Webceleb provides a platform for artists and fans to join forces and make money together. Music lovers are empowered to discover new artists, support professional musicians and get further involved in a musician’s career. “People make a choice to buy music. The beauty of Webceleb is that for the first time when they make that decision they will be given the chance to form partnerships with musicians and have a vested role in the marketing and discovery process,” said Scott Fetters, co-founder.
Prior to the site’s official launch, Webceleb already had more than 20,000 active users and featured more than 1,000 artists. This is how the site works, fans purchase songs for $1 and receive 1 Slice. Fifty percent goes to the musician; 40 percent goes back to the fans that own Slices from purchasing music; and 10 percent goes to Webceleb.
“Whenever you purchase a song from a musician you get to participate in that musician's financial success. This approach offers additional incentive for fans to discover new music and share their discoveries with others,” said Alex Rolek, co-founder.
People make money whenever others purchase any song by the same artist, and within just seven purchases, the first person makes their full dollar back. You then have the option of turning earnings into more cash by purchasing more songs – or you may cash out when you reach $20. Go to http://www.webceleb.com and sign up today to find out how legal downloading pays.

Webceleb is a next generation social music store where everyone can get paid to download music. People are free to make their own decisions as to whether to pirate or purchase music, that’s their choice. But by allowing fans and musicians to make money together, we believe we can create a positive global impact through a community that embraces legal downloading. Our mantra is to help musicians earn a living and make music discovery more social, while never undervaluing the role of the fan. Go to http://www.webceleb.com to find out how legal downloading pays.
