INDmusic is announcing its first post-”Shake” partnership as it teams up with PledgeMusic, a music crowdfunding platform that focuses on direct-to-fan interaction. The idea is to combine INDmusic’s expertise at optimizing an artist’s presence on YouTube with PledgeMusic’s platform, which allows for a wide array of engagement opportunities with fans. The opportunities offered by PledgeMusic include traditional-style crowdfunding, soliciting donations to charities, and selling “experiences” like playing at a fan’s house party or letting fans hang out with the band during rehearsal.
