  3. Members can earn credit towards awesome experiences by recommending Artistco to their friends.

For artists...

What does Artistco do for you?
Artistco is a feature-rich web and mobile platform that empowers artists to grow and support their community while receiving fair compensation for their streaming music.
Members can pay an annual subscription to enjoy fan and VIP experiences, and they earn rewards when promoting your music to friends.
How much does it cost artists to join?
Nothing. Zip. It’s totally free.
Can any creator make an Artistco club?
Yes. Artistco is open to all artists, become an Artistco artist now!
How do artists get rewarded?
We value music and the creation process, and we believe artists should be properly compensated for their work. Other streaming services only pay a fraction of income to artists.

With Artistco, creators get 100% of the revenue from first year subscriptions they brought to their club or 70% of referral subscriptions from Artistco or fans. (See next section for clarification.)
How does Artistco monetize from artists?
In two ways:

1. We promote your music to people who are interested in similar music. If we find you a new fan, or a new subscriber joins without using Artistco’s referral engine, we get 30% commission on those extra subscriptions. (Remember, we don’t charge any commission on first year subscriptions from members that join via your referral.)

2. When your fans recommend your club to their friends, we get 10% commission on any friends’ subscriptions.
Commissions go towards supporting the development of the Artistco platform. Your fans will earn a 20% credit that they can use towards purchasing subscriptions, merchandise, tickets, and more. (Our credit redemption system is developing. Please learn more about our referral engine here, and stay tuned for updates!)
Does your site use cookies?
Yes.

Cookies and custom links enable us to track which subscribers joined from referrals. Artists get 100% of the fees from first year subscriptions they bring to the platform.
