Our CEO named President of GMP

Shachar Oren, Founder and CEO of Neurotic Media, was elected President of Georgia Music Partners (GMP), the authority that promotes, grows and improves the music economy in the state of Georgia. GMP was the primary driver behind Georgia’s Music Investment Act (HB-155), which Governor Deal signed into law in May 2017. GMP is now focused on promoting Georgia’s Music Investment Act to the music industry nationally and locally in order to drive job growth in Georgia, and emphasize workforce readiness strategy in collaboration with academia. GMP is led by a Board of industry professionals who all volunteer pro bono to drive GMP’s mission forward.

The following post was made on the GMP site by exiting founding president Tammy Hurt on September 8th, 2017:

It has been a privilege and humbling experience to serve as president of Georgia Music Partners (GMP) these last 7 years. With a huge legislative win and Governor Deal’s signing of HB 155 into Georgia’s Music Investment Act, the stage is set for Georgia to exponentially grow its music industry. While I have very much enjoyed being at the helm of the organization, it’s time for me to concentrate on building my business and focus on fulfilling my role as national Trustee of the Recording Academy Atlanta. It’s an exciting evolution for me and it is a very good time for GMP.

I am passing the proverbial baton to my colleague, Shachar “Shac” Oren, who has served as a GMP board member since 2014. I believe he is the best person within the organization to lead GMP’s business and workforce development efforts to grow Georgia’s music economy. At our last board meeting, Shac was unanimously voted in as president. If you don’t already know him, he is CEO & President of both Neurotic Media and Amplified. Shac will follow up in upcoming days with information about GMP’s roadmap for 2017-2018.
I’m not leaving, just making way for the organization to continue on the path we have created together. I will continue to provide support to my fellow colleagues and the organization going forward as a board member and sponsor.

It has truly been an honor to have been a small part of the big journey.

Founding President, Georgia Music Partners

The offering uses fully-native Android applications that carriers may pre-load on Android devices or offer for installation at any time. This enables mobile carriers to launch exciting music offerings as value-add services for LTE and 4G subscribers – a fast growing constituency for mobile carriers this year. Each participating carrier can custom-brand the application for its unique target audience. Carriers can each develop a unique data plan bundle for their post-paid subscribers, as well as sell the music subscription separately to their pre-paid subscribers.

“Amplified Unlimited provides carriers with a great tool for acquisition, retention, and CHURN reduction” says Shachar Oren, Neurotic Media’s CEO. “It helps mobile carriers grow their subscriber base competitively, increase their average revenue per user (ARPU), and capture lost revenue by participating in the marketplace that their networks are enabling.

Since the subscription offers access to downloadable files, the music is accessible on each device anytime, anywhere, with no buffering issues – even when subscribers go on a long vacation. The service is also a great way for parents to budget and ration music consumption for their children.

Neurotic Media Expands Open API Services

Atlanta, GA – January 19, 2012 – Neurotic Media, the market leader in driving consumer behavior using popular artists and songs, today announced the launch of Neurolinq™ PLUS, a new suite of open Application Protocol Interface (API) services that complements its existing API solutions with enhanced services. Neurolinq™ PLUS API enables developers to source Neurotic Media’s licensed music catalogs, which include millions of MP3s and their metadata – together with e-commerce services and reward points services. In addition, Neurolinq™ PLUS API enhances the metadata by providing Wikipedia artist bios, artist Twitter feeds, artist social media and website URLs, and artist and product recommendations driven by consumer behavior and buying pattern. Neurolinq™ PLUS API also allows developers to use Neurotic Media’s Content Management System (CMS) to merchandise their creation, may that be a website, or a mobile app. The result is a robust end-to-end service that can be used in whole or in parts to achieve one’s business and marketing strategy with an economy of scale.

“Neurotic Media was the first service to launch an open API developer lab as a resource for music site developers with www.neurolinq.com – and we armed hundreds of coders with the ability to create services that access a robust music catalog” say Shachar Oren, Neurotic Media’s CEO. “With the addition of Neurolinq™ PLUS API, we make it even easier to code rich apps and widgets.”

“Neurolinq™ PLUS’s elegancy is in aggregating multiple rich media sources into one simple method,” adds Tim Kohler, Neurotic Media’s VP of Technology. “Instead of having to integrate multiple feeds from multiple sources, developers can simply integrate Neurolinq™ PLUS as one robust solution that powers their service’s back end, while focusing their efforts on their core business and user experience. Neurolinq™ PLUS offers both RESTful and SOAP calls for added flexibility. You can see an example of this in our own mobile showcase at http://m.amplified.com (which in itself is a “client” of Neurolinq™ PLUS) and in our online showcase at http://www.amplified.com.”

Neurotic Media Launches Facebook Music Check-In Incentives

Atlanta, GA – April 28, 2011 – Neurotic Media, the leading provider of online and mobile entertainment download solutions, today announced the launch of “Music Check-In Incentives” via private-label mobile sites. Music Check-In Incentives generate brand awareness, encourage in-store (or in-venue) traffic, build consumer loyalty, capture consumer data, and increase sales. Leveraging mobile geo-social marketing, Neurotic Media’s new service allows for action-oriented, trackable cost-per-acquisition metrics.

To use Music Check-In Incentives, consumers visit a brand’s physical location, and while on-location, check in using Facebook on a branded mini-site using their smart phone. They are then immediately rewarded with music MP3 downloads directly to their handset (a single artist promotion, a custom playlist, or X credits to download from a full catalog of millions of songs). The check in process is completed with a custom message from the brand that gets posted on the consumer’s Facebook Wall, informing their friends of the check in location and the reward they received from the brand. “Give people a reason to stop by your business and make a purchase,” says Shachar Oren, Neurotic Media’s CEO, “and remember that your core consumers also influence the purchase decisions of others through word of mouth and through their postings on Facebook.” While initially launched using Facebook, Neurotic Media’s Mobile Check-In Incentives can utilize geo-location technologies from other social networks.

“We are excited to launch this innovation, which reaffirms our commitment to helping our clients stay in synch with how their consumers interact with social media, technology, and brand,” adds Oren. “Our Music Check-In Incentives are like a musical “Facebook Deal,” an incentive with high perceived value that grants a brand the power to acquire and retain consumers. In the eyes of consumers, the perceived value of music is often greater than cash rewards or other forms of incentives. Our new check in service can generate exposure for our clients, communicate great value about their brand, and help them reach new and existing consumers with a reward everyone loves: The gift of music.”

An example of the new Music Check-In Incentive can be seen on Neurotic Media’s showcase store’s mobile HTML5 site, http://m.amplified.com, which incorporates a “Check In” button into the user experience.

Neurotic Media Deploys New B2B Features

Launches Album Pre-Orders with Instant Gratification, Deluxe Albums, Animated Feature Controls, Enriching Consumer Experience in Brands’ Stores

Atlanta, GA – October 12, 2010 – Neurotic Media, the leading provider of online and mobile entertainment download solutions, today announced the expansion of its platform features with the addition of multiple rich marketing services for its clients. Record companies can take advantage of new “album pre-order with instant gratification” and new “deluxe album” tools to promote new priority releases at MP3 retailer sites, and brands can use new “animated feature controls” in their hosted download stores to display new releases with a richer, more entertaining consumer experience.

“Neurotic Media is pleased to be the first download provider to make these essential features available in the B2B space,” comments Shachar Oren, Neurotic Media’s President and CEO. “Record companies constantly seek to deliver more value with their new releases, and music retailers and consumer brands benefit by passing that value on to their consumers. Our new features enable our clients to be more competitive in the digital music space. Consumers enjoy more exciting offerings – new digital configurations, advance release opportunities, and more enticing shopping experiences.”

Neurotic Media’s new “Animated Feature Controls” use light Jquery for cross-browser support (including various portable devices, such as iPads). Three types of animated feature controls can be viewed at Neurotic Media hosted stores: “Slide Show,” “Horizontal Slider,” and “Vertical Tabs”. Album pre-order with instant gratification is also visible: Several new releases are promoted involving album pre-order weeks before street date, providing an immediate reward to the consumer in the form of one of the MP3 tracks downloading immediately upon order placement. Enhanced “Deluxe Album” bundles are offered as well with several new releases being promoted inclusive of bonus material such as videos, wallpapers or extra MP3s.

Our Digital Distribution Patent

Atlanta, GA – April 13, 2010 – Neurotic Media, the leading provider of online and mobile entertainment download solutions, today announced that it was awarded a patent on fundamental qualities of digital content syndication and distribution which are supported by its proprietary platform. Specifically, USPTO patent number 7,693,914 addresses a unique B2B2C relationship across the entire chain of content owners, merchants/brands, and consumers which, in recent months, has also been referred to in the marketplace as a “Hosted Model.”

Major and independent record companies provision their digital catalogs through Neurotic Media’s patented platform to various outlets (merchants, brand sites, and applications) and are able to provision commercial terms differently for each outlet in the system. For example, different outlets may at times receive different discounts or release windows for a digital product. Outlets are able to review what has been provisioned for them directly from the content owners and make business choices about when and how to sell a product and how much to charge their consumers for it. Consumers, in turn, are exposed to an offering originating from content owners but filtered by the business decisions of the outlets (hence the term B2B2C). Neurotic Media was the first company to launch such a system as a full do-it-yourself software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) platform earlier in 2005.

“We are very pleased to have been awarded this patent – which further validates the strength of our unique technology,” says Shachar Oren, Neurotic Media’s CEO. “We designed our platform as a tool to empower content owners with hands-on control and transparency over how they monetize their digital distribution process, both in-house and directly with their brand clients and partners. Merchants and brands, in turn, needed to control the merchandising of product and the consumer experience, since that experience defines them and differentiates one merchant from another. Our platform was designed to allow for these mission-critical business relationships to exist with ease in order to drive operational efficiencies for our clients and partners. The resulting patented platform has made Neurotic Media the leader in servicing the private-label download space, with hundreds of brands and sites empowered by our platform and millions of downloads delivered to millions of consumers every year.”

LAS VEGAS – March 24, 2010 – Neurotic Media, the leading provider of online and mobile entertainment download solutions, today announced that it was selected by TuneWiki, a leading social music application, to empower integrated MP3 sales for the TuneWiki Web site and several handsets. In the coming months, TuneWiki will use Neurotic Media’s NeuroLinq™ API services (www.neurolinq.com) to offer consumers a seamless shopping experience.

MP3 sales will be offered by TuneWiki via the following online points of sale: – www.tunewiki.com – Via the TuneWiki Windows Media Player plug-in – To certain smart-phones when connected via WiFi to the Internet

“Letting consumers shop for the music they find through our community features was the obvious next step in our evolution. Neurotic Media is not only highly regarded in this space but has leading API tools and simple-to-use Web services, making this a winning long-term partnership,” said Amnon Sarig, President of TuneWiki. “Neurotic Media was the clear choice for a partner in rolling out this important component of our monetization strategy.”

“The integrated shopping experience that Neurotic Media and TuneWiki can provide is the best way to properly marry their existing entertainment platform with an easy-to-use shopping environment,” said Shachar Oren, President and CEO of Neurotic Media. “Our back-office services provide TuneWiki with a vast catalog of MP3s through a unified API that has been tested and proven in the marketplace during the past two years by over a dozen clients including retailers, record companies and Fortune 500 consumer brands. Neurotic Media takes care of things like record company reporting, royalty reconciliation and content ingestion services – allowing TuneWiki to stay focused on its core business as a brand. As a tested-and-proven API service, Neurolinq™ API minimizes risk for our clients and reassures them that they are engaging with the right partner for growth – an element that we know was mission-critical for Tunewiki.”

Loudtrax Increases Its Focused Catalog

ATLANTA, GA – Can you hear that? It’s Loudtrax (www.loudtrax.com), a music download website that aims to become the default online destination for lovers of Rock, Metal and Punk music. Loudtrax today announced that it has partnered with Neurotic Media, the leading provider of online and mobile entertainment download solutions, to offer Loudtrax fans download catalogs from Alternative Distribution Alliance (ADA) and other major and indie labels.

Loudtrax has integrated Neurotic Media’s NeuroLinq Product API (application protocol interface) into its site, which enables Loudtrax to seamlessly sell a vast MP3 catalog through its own designed and controlled e-commerce site while Neurotic Media administers all licensing, hosting, delivery, and content owner reporting and payment requirements on the back-end. In working with Neurotic Media, Loudtrax has gained access to niche labels through ADA, one of the leading distributors of digital independent music in America with strong offerings in the genres that are of interest to Loudtrax.

While there are currently hundreds of download sites in the USA, none of them have catered their services specifically to the fans of rock, metal and punk – until now. Loudtrax provides fans a focused browsing and shopping experience, boasting twenty two sub genres – Classic Rock, Punk, Black Metal, Thrash Metal, Post Punk, Indie Rock, etc. – sub-genres that target a specific, large segment of the music buying audience. Fans of each sub-genre can browse the well-curated store knowing that they will only find artists that fit their selected genre – including Featured Releases, New Releases, and other unique features which Loudtrax plans to develop to target the Rock, Metal, and Punk community. Artists have the opportunity to be more accessible to their fans and to new audiences by being placed in their correct genre, as opposed to being placed in a general “Rock”, “Metal” or a broad “Alternative” category. By carefully catering to their sub-genre demographics, Loudtrax plan to become a favorite destination for LOUD music fans.

“We are thrilled to empower MP3 stores for brand marketers like Loudtrax,” says Meredith Marconi, SVP of Sales & Marketing at Neurotic Media. “Consumers have grown savvier about their digital music purchases, and buying from the biggest site with the most tracks isn’t what matters most. The discriminating music consumer wants to have a more intimate experience that is tailored to their unique persona, and that is exactly what Loudtrax delivers.”

“Signing on with Neurotic Media and gaining access to incredible catalogs through their technology-enabled service is vital to our business. Although we place a great deal of importance on the indie and unsigned artists, having access to Major label artists offers a perfect way for fans to discover new up and coming artists, while also finding their all-time favorites and bigger name artists in our store,” says Antonio Marsillo, President of LoudTrax.com.

Signing Indie Labels to Hosted Model

ATLANTA, GA – January 13, 2010 – Neurotic Media, the leading provider of online and mobile entertainment download solutions, today announced that it was selected by E1 Entertainment, Madacy Entertainment/Countdown Media, and Curb Records for “Hosted Model” digital distribution services. The “Hosted Model” is a term coined by record companies for a digital distribution model whereby they host their digital catalogs with a vendor (i.e. Neurotic Media) that allows them to control and administer their distribution relationships in the marketplace directly, hands-on, in a self-managed manner. Using Neurotic Media’s do-it-yourself admin platform, content owners such as record companies and distributors manage their digital assets on a project-by-project basis, including both business-to-business-to-consumer (B2B2C) initiatives and direct-to-consumer (D2C) projects.

Content owners use Neurotic Media to launch brand and retail partners quickly using either Neurotic Media’s Neurolinq™ API tools or Neurotic Media’s do-it-yourself, template-based services. Additionally, content owners use Neurotic Media’s platform to execute and manage their in-house needs, such as empowering artist websites’ download stores, widgets, give-away campaigns, and solutions for corporate partners. Neurotic Media’s platform provides its content owner clients with an easy path to increase distribution and sales revenues, a path that has been tested and proven by major record companies since Neurotic Media launched its enterprise-class platform in 2005.

Meredith Marconi, SVP of Sales & Marketing of Neurotic Media, comments: “We’re excited to add marquee independent record companies such as E1 Entertainment, Curb Records, and Madacy Entertainment/Countdown Media to our Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) platform. With the ongoing shift of revenues from physical to digital products, independent record companies are now able to recognize returns from using our system, which in the past were considered only major label domain. Our robust, holistic digital platform offers multiple online and mobile delivery capabilities that touch many departments and initiatives within a record label or distribution company. We are proud to empower leading independent distributors who can now yield strong returns from shifting certain operations, services and programs to the digital domain.”

CM2OLDIES Launches Digital Entertainment Store

ATLANTA, GA – (September 9, 2009) – Neurotic Media, the leading provider of online and mobile entertainment download solutions and CM2OLDIES, today announced the launch of the iOldiesmusicstore.com online music and entertainment store. The digital store (in beta format) is found at http://www.ioldiesmusicstore.com and features over two million MP3’s from major and independent record labels, sold in conjunction with CDs and DVDs topping 20 million titles, which consumers can find in the unique and innovative Jukebox-like interface on the site.

The iOldiesmusicstore.com entertainment store is the only music source offering Baby Boomers single downloads, entire album downloads, CDs, vinyl records (LPS), ringtones and “retro” DVDs in one shopping experience that tailors the experience specifically for their generation. CM2Oldies marketing efforts are following a unique approach to the digital music space by applying proven “off-line” direct marketing formulas and product formats, such as database-driven affinity programs, to its marketing and promotions process.

iOldiesmusicstore.com aims to serve the 50+ year old Baby Boomer market, seeking to become the destination of choice for Baby Boomers to get their music online in all formats. Record companies have vast recording catalogues of songs from the 50s to the 80s (and even older) which, with traditional record stores fading away and closing down, are not readily available to Baby Boomer consumers anymore. CM2Oldies will focus on marketing these deeper catalogs. In addition to music sales, iOldiesmusicstore.com will enable the Boomers to write blogs, meet new people that share their music tastes, and share photos and memories through a social networking platform that was custom-developed for CM2Oldies by Touchstone Webworks Inc.

iOldiesmusicstore.com has integrated Neurotic Media’s NeuroLinq Product API (application protocol interface) into its site, which enables iOldiesmusicstore.com to seamlessly sell a vast digital MP3 catalog via its own designed and controlled e-commerce site. With NeuroLinq, digital products such as MP3s, videos, images, text files, games or even mobile products can be merchandised together with physical goods, all to be sold together through that store’s existing checkout process. Neurotic Media administers all sales reporting and payments to content owners on behalf of CM2 Oldies, allowing the company to better focus on its interaction with consumers.

“We are honored to be the digital download provider for ioldiesmusicstore.com,” said Shachar Oren, Neurotic Media’s CEO. “The overall user experience ioldiesmusicstore.com provides its customers is totally unique – a fresh new take on what a user experience should be about – tailored specifically to a demographic that historically has not been catered to by digital brands on the web or on a mobile device. It is precisely this type of well-targeted consumer experience that makes our job as a B2B2C vendor exciting – we help our clients innovate, and we’re proud to be part of a new model such as iOldiesmusicstore.com.”

The founder of CM2Oldies, Wesley T. Wood says, “The newest sites online are social networking sites aimed at Baby Boomers and the ‘graying’ computer users. The number of internet users older than 55 years is roughly the same as those who are age 18-30 years (according to Nielsen/Net Rating). There are approximately 78 million Baby Boomers in the US alone and this market has, to date, been underserved online. iOldiesmusicstore.com will change that with its new entertainment and social networking offerings.” Phase1 test will be the North American market with a planned global roll out in 2010.

Mr. Wood is the President of Marketing Capital Corporation, the parent company of CM2Oldies, LLC (dba iOldiesmusicstore.com) and the co-founder of Candlelite Music Inc., which was the largest re-packager of tier-two music in the 1970s and 80s, selling hundreds of millions of doo wop-type music products. Marketing Capital is a world leader in direct marketing, providing consulting services to the direct response and specialty retailing industry in eleven countries. The company also owns several direct marketing companies worldwide. The firm will leverage its in-house database of over 50 million opt-in names in order to build the music store brand.

Download Developers Lab

ATLANTA, GA – June 4, 2009 – Neurotic Media, the leading provider of online and mobile entertainment download solutions, today announced the deployment of its NeuroLinq™ API Developer Lab, which offers developers free access to its API documentation and development tools from www.neuroticmedia.com or directly at www.neuro-linq.com. The NeuroLinq™ suite includes APIs (application protocol interfaces) for Product, Awards and Checkout functions, which can be used together or separately depending upon client needs. In total, these functions complete a turn-key solution for digital download fulfillment, e-commerce, and promotional campaigns. Existing Neurotic Media clients using NeuroLinq™ API services include websites such as Hot Topic’s ShockHound.com and widgets such as musicane.com.

Since 2007, the NeuroLinq™ API service has been delivering digital products to consumers from Neurotic Media’s servers seamlessly, while allowing the brand client’s sites to remain the merchant of record. Clients can choose to upload their own content, or to incorporate Neurotic Media’s pre-licensed catalogs of DRM-free MP3s from major and independent labels into their own sites. This allows digital products to be merged with other offerings (such as physical goods) and sold through a store’s existing checkout process. Neurotic Media administers all sales reporting and payments to content owners on behalf of its clients, allowing clients to better focus on their core business and their brand’s interaction with consumers.

“Although our hosted digital store and promotion solutions are able to be customized at a very granular level, the flexibility that the NeuroLinq™ API platform offers a brand is extremely appealing,” says Meredith Marconi, VP of Sales and Marketing. “Since 2001, clients have been working with Neurotic Media as their back-end music and ringtone provider because of our unmatched level of service and support. We find they choose the NeuroLinq™ API because it enables them to control the entire consumer experience – the site creative, navigation, consumer information, and final transaction. The creation of the Developer Lab is a natural by-product of the success we have experienced with the API platform. It will enable our clients to get to market more quickly and economically.”

The NeuroLinq™ Developer Lab will be a useful service for portals, search engines, e-tailers, widget creators, plug-in developers, marketing agencies, and community sites who seek to access pre-licensed digital catalogs through their existing User Interfaces and through their own shopping carts, for both sale and promotional purposes. The platform also offers an e-commerce solution for widgets and applications that do not maintain a shopping cart. Using NeuroLinq™ Checkout API, clients can post payments through the Neurotic Media e-commerce solution. Such payments can include both Neurotic Media product payments and payments for other products being sold by the client. A similar service, NeuroLinq™ Awards API, enables clients to post PIN codes into the Neurotic Media system for code redemption services (including optional POS code activation at selected retail chains).

“Our NeuroLinq™ Developer Lab opens exciting new distribution avenues for record companies and for the online digital product community as a whole,” stated Shachar Oren, CEO of Neurotic Media. “Many existing sites, widgets and applications can benefit from plug-ins that simplify the integration process for their developers and provide a streamlined business model in support of their download offering. Our Developer Lab offers the first-ever free access to such API suite to allow developers to escalate their time-to-market by developing their solution far in advance of engaging Neurotic Media and content owners for business agreements. The Developer Lab also provides a Forum in which developers can share ideas with each other, and we encourage collaboration efforts in order to expand the use of our API platform in the marketplace and help diversify and expand the digital commerce arena.”
