As we informed in September 2012 the old Klicktrack system is now closed down. We thank all of you for these years and for those who have moved on to the new system we are looking forward for many fruitful years ahead.
The closing statements are being created now and you will find them on your admin pages on this link where you also find invoicing information. Please invoice us as soon as you can.
Once again big thanks for these years!
The Klicktrack Crew
Dear Klicktrack user!
As we informed you when we merged with the digital distributor Phonofile our plan was also to merge our two systems into one and update the Klicktrack shop system.
We are getting close to the first step of this and we will launch a new label shop which you will be able to have on your Facebook page. Besides selling MP3s (320kbps) you can also sell FLAC files (CD-quality) there. If you want to check it out just click on the link below and you will get to a live beta version of it.
If you wish to have one of these for your label you will have to sign up with Phonofile (since we are two different companies) and upload you content in their system. Later this autumn the whole Klicktrack portal store will also be using the new Phonofile technology and if you wish to stay on and sell your releases in the new Klicktrack portal store you will also have to make a deal with Phonofile. Then you can also use Phonofile for your digital distribution to Spotify/iTunes/etc if you wish and keep all your digital distribution in one place saving much time. More info about Phonofile can be found on the link below.
If you want to apply for an Phonofile account you can do so on this link:
The launch for the Facebook shop is planned for November 1 and the launch of the new portal store is planned sometimes between November 1 and December 31. If you have any questions regarding this just e-mail us.
It is very important that you enter all info correctly and also not leave out any info if you are using Klicktrack’s Aggregation Services. For instance the fields “ISRC”, “Songwriter(s)”, “Publisher(s)” and “Author(s)” are required for each track and if you do not fill them out it means your release can not be distributed.
We hope summer has treated you all well! As mentioned earlier Klicktrack are expanding the services to include Aggregation. Please be advised that we now have started aggregation and are working to get automatic delivery to 200+ digital stores and services up and running during autumn. Please keep a lookout for more information but don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to sign up for our Aggregation Services right away! Your music will be distributed to all the significant services and the deal is the same as the Klicktrack deal.
I just wanted to post a short note to give a big heads up to you all labels/artists/managers that responds so quickly and swift to mails from us regarding support issues. Klicktrack are happy to have a smooth and well functioning system running but occasionally your/ our end customers experience problems with their downloads. It can be a damaged file or something missing in a release. Your quick and effective handling of such cases is much appreciated! In this way we can keep up a very good level of service and customers are happy to get their problems solved in an efficient way and will hopefully come back for more good music.
Thanks a lot!
This message is primarily for the Swedish labels that are participating in the Klicktrack deal with Nokia Music Store and Nokia Comes With Music Service.
Nokia has approached us about a series of “in store” events in connection with the launch of Comes With Music in Sweden. When they launch Comes With Music in April, they would like to have a few artists playing in some selected retail outlets where Nokia will be selling their new devices. Nokia are thinking of around 10 different artists at various stores throughout the country, with a focus on Stockholm, Göteborg, and Malmö. The events will take place on the 25th of April.
While there won’t be any direct payment, the artists participating will receive a CWM-enabled device, plus will be promoted on Nokia Music Store, and be part of the wider PR/marketing campaign that will be in full speed at this time.
If you are interested in the events please contact me at email@example.com and I will pass it on to Nokia.
Also, Nokia are manufacturing at least 10.000 CWM-branded CDs to hand out to people at various concerts like the Melodifestivalen final, as well as having them in their retail partners’ stores.
In each CD they are going to include a voucher for a number of free tracks that the customer can redeem from the NMS (nokia music store).
I would like to know if anyone would like to contribute tracks to this promotion? It seems like a great way to get your music into a whole new audience, and they will be one of the main features in the store at a crucial time when the eyes of the world will be on NMS Sverige …
If you are interested to give away a track on the CWM-CD please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will pass it on to Nokia.
Klicktrack has signed a deal with Nokia that will enable all our labels and artists to have their music included in the Nokia Music Store and in the Nokia ”Comes With Music” service. Anyone who wants to participate can do so by checking a box at your admin pages under “Shop” and then under “Accept/Reject shops”.
All territorial limitations that you have determined when uploading your releases will remain the same, Nokia can only present your music in the territories that you have chosen in your admin. We will include income from the Nokia deal with your regular statements.
We feel that this is a good opportunity to have your music exposed in a new and expanding retail model. For our Swedish labels it can be of interest to know that the “Comes With Music” model will be launched in Sweden during the second quarter 2009.
If you want more information about the details in the deal with Nokia please contact me at email@example.com
