Variable Pricing MP3s

ATLANTA, GA – April 07, 2009 – Neurotic Media, the leading provider of private-label online and mobile entertainment download solutions, today announced the rollout of variable pricing to its clients. Starting with Tuesday’s new releases, Neurotic Media clients such as Hot Topic’s ShockHound.com and Hastings will receive ongoing pricing updates, which will allow them to match and compete favorably with other direct-to-consumer download stores.

Neurotic Media has been offering entirely DRM-Free music catalogs in the MP3 format from all its label partners through its B2B2C platform since Fall 2008. The new variable pricing being instituted by most record companies this week involves three conventional retail price rates for MP3s – $0.69, $0.99, and $1.29 – although record companies are able to stipulate any other price as needed on a per-product basis. Neurotic Media’s clients will receive these pricing updates daily via their hosted store’s admin interface or via their API updates. Brand clients will be able to leverage Neurotic Media’s service tools to ensure that their consumers are able to access competitive offerings on a regular basis, including exclusive offerings, when such are booked between a record company and a digital retail client.

“Our platform provides record companies with hands-on control and flexibility over their digital distribution” said Neurotic Media’s CEO, Shachar Oren. “We work hard to ensure that our clients receive the latest product and pricing modifications as soon as record companies release such offerings to the marketplace. It is imperative for us to remain at the forefront of such industry developments in order for us to provide our clients with the tools they need to remain competitive in the marketplace and to maximize their return from digital sales. We are pleased to be in a position to deploy this offering in a timely fashion to our clients, and we thank our label partners for their cooperation.”

National Civil Rights Museum’s MP3

ATLANTA, GA – January 19, 2009 – Neurotic Media, the leading provider of online and mobile entertainment download solutions, today announced that it was selected by the National Civil Rights Museum to support the digital store of a special musical tribute recording to honor both Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and President Barack Obama. The single, “Martin’s Tribute” is being released today as part of the Museum’s annual King Day Celebration.

Offered for sale on the National Civil Rights Museum’s website, www.civilrightsmuseum.org, the MP3 single features the voice of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., as well as highlights from President Barack Obama’s acceptance speech made on November 4, 2008 when he won the Presidential election. Performers on the song include Patti Austin, Yolanda Adams, Ali Woodson, Darrell Coley, Cybil Shepard, Will Downing and Take 6.

This project was conceived by Grammy-Award Winning producers Sanchez Harley and Jacqui Whittmon, the song’s executive producers, who both worked on the 1993 CD release “March On,” which was recorded at Mason Temple in Memphis, Tennessee to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. King.

“It is truly an honor to have been chosen to provide the back-end download services to the National Civil Rights Museum for this special tribute store,” says Shachar Oren, CEO of Neurotic Media. “Although Neurotic Media works for famous recording artists and Fortune 500 brands on a daily basis, there is nothing more inspirational than to be involved in sharing the spirit of what this tribute song offers to all of us – as Americans, and as first-hand witnesses to such a monumental event in our country’s history as the swearing in of Barack Obama as President of the United States.”

Sacred Tones Ringtone Store

ATLANTA, GA – December 18, 2008 – Neurotic Media, the leading provider of online and mobile entertainment download solutions, today announced that it is powering the mobile sales at the Sacred Tones store launched at www.sacredtones.net. The Sacred Tones ringtones store features pre- licensed ringtones from major and indie labels that can be purchased via text-to-shortcode from mobile phones using premium SMS services, with a significant portion of revenues donated by Sacred Tones to charity.

Sacred Tones was founded by Emmy-nominated writer/producer and former H.B.O. exec, Judith Feldman. Judith’s vision for Sacred Tones is simple: “We are all citizens of the world, and Sacred Tones brings the music of our “one world” to the consumer.” And I strongly believe in the power of sound. And picture. It’s what I know from my years in the film business.”

Set against magnificent visuals, the site is meant to be an exciting audio/visual experience on every level. Launched in time to spread holiday cheer, the Sacred Tones site is selling ringtones that capture the spirit of the season. In an effort to share that spirit, Sacred Tones is donating twenty-five percent of its gross revenue from the sale of the holiday ringtones to Feeding America and its global counterpart, the Global Foodbanking Network (found at http://feedingamerica.org and http://www.foodbanking.org). This and other charitable organizations will continue to be supported after the Holiday season, when the store will re-launch on January 1, 2009 with an expanded, global ringtones offering – featuring Gregorian chants, Native American music, East meets West, and music from Africa and the Orient.

Neurotic Media’s short code services enable Sacred Tones to control and customize the site’s creative user interface while providing the consumer with customized Sacred Tones Novelty ID for the truetones, which the consumer then uses to order the truetones via text-to-shortcode. The entire transaction occurs from a consumer’s hand-held device. Neurotic Media handles the back-end support for carrier and device recognition and delivery optimization to the handset, as well as billing and reporting, working as a seamless back-end service to ensure Sacred Tones’ time and efforts can remain focused on the unique front-end experience they provide for their consumers.

Judith Feldman from Sacred Tones says, “It’s one thing to have a concept and another to honor it in the execution, always aiming for the highest. But all of this would be wasted were it not for my fortuitous alliance with the pros of Neurotic Media. I’m going for the best, and from my experience, I’m partnered with the best. They know what I’m after and together we are making that happen.”

Shachar Oren, Neurotic Media’s CEO says, “We are proud to have been chosen to support Sacred Tones as they launch their unique brand to the marketplace. Since ringtones are viewed as personality statements by consumers, we believe that the diverse and different offering Sacred Tones launched will appeal immensely to a growing mobile market into 2009.”

Extending Shockhound.com’s Catalog

ATLANTA, GA – December 17, 2008 – Neurotic Media, the leading provider of online and mobile download solutions, today announced that Hot Topic has integrated its Product API (application protocol interface) service, NeuroLinq™ Products, into ShockHound® (www.shockhound.com), the all genre music and social networking site, which contains a vast selection of play-anywhere MP3s, band merchandise, exclusive editorial content and online programming. This solution enables ShockHound.com to seamlessly integrate Neurotic Media’s vast digital MP3 catalog into ShockHound’s already extensive MP3 and physical merchandise offerings. In addition, Neurotic Media’s NeuroLinq API works well with ShockHound’s shopping cart, which is one of the first shopping carts to offer digital and physical goods simultaneously in the check out process.

Using NeuroLinq™ Products, Neurotic Media clients can choose to upload their own content, or to integrate Neurotic Media’s pre-licensed catalogs of music, ringtones, and videos from major and independent record companies into their online stores. Digital products such as MP3s, videos, images, text files, games, or even mobile products can be integrated into any current online store, and merged with other offerings and physical goods, all to be sold together through the 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.

Stella Mowen, ShockHound® Manager of Label Relations comments: “The integration of the NeuroLinq™ Product API into our product database was an easy and smooth experience. The API solution enabled us to create an effortless consumer check out experience. The additional MP3s provided through NeuroLinq™ into ShockHound.com’s product mix will extend our digital offering enormously and be received positively by our customer base.”

According to Shachar Oren, CEO of Neurotic Media, the creation of NeuroLinq™ was a natural progression for the company. “Our hosted store management system provides our clients with a tremendous amount of customization options. However, some businesses already have a store infrastructure in place, or seek to integrate digital product sales into existing elements of a portal or a widget. They don’t need a hosted store service but rather seek to integrate downloads into their existing systems. NeuroLinq™ is a powerful tool that allows such companies to launch download services quickly and economically.”
