Topspin + Amp

Here at Amp we develop and execute some pretty extensive, integrated online marketing and sales campaigns for a wide variety of musicians. To do that we use a combination of commonly used internet technologies (like Facebook, Spotify or YouTube) and some more specialized, back end technologies to power our sales, insights, analytics, mailing lists and music downloads. Much of this is powered by one technology partner of ours - Topspin Media.

Topspin’s industry leading systems power the direct-to-fan marketing & sales activities of big name artists like Eminem, Interpol, Paul McCartney and of course our own clients like Sharon Corr, Heathers, Tara Blaise and many more.

We are a fully accredited Topspin marketing services partner. If you’ve arrived here from the Topspin website, here are some of the things we can help you with:

Sales

  • Build a store page for your website
  • Full tracking and insights - know which marketing activities result in sales and which don’t.
  • Shipping and Handling - We can pick, pack and post your albums & merch
  • Full digital distribution - We process, package and upload all your digital audio to Topspin, iTunes and more

Marketing

  • Build you a website at your own .com address
  • Build you professional social media profiles on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and more
  • Run online advertising and marketing campaigns to promote your music

All our marketing campaigns are fully integrated with Topspin fan acquisition technologies. For example, we worked with Hoarsebox, a local Dublin band to build this campaign:

We have built Topspsin-powered email-capture widgets and embedded them in their website and throughout their online presences (Facebook, Twitter etc.) to connect with fans and gather email addresses. We are building a sizeable online fan-base for Hoarsebox, so that when the band are ready to release their music and hit the road on tour, they’ll already have an engaged audience to purchase and spread the word.

One of the best features about all our marketing campaigns is the ability to re-market in the future: once we have connected with a fan we can easily contact them again in future – offering discounts, deluxe packages or VIP tickets for loyal fans who’ve bought your album.

Let’s Work Together

If you’d like to work with us to build your online presence, build a solid fanbase and sell your music online, then we’d love to hear from you. You can get in touch using the form on our contact page, by emailing us at [email protected] or calling us on +353 86 3559129. We’re based in Dublin, Ireland, but we work with musicians all over the world.

Fees & Charges

Topspin’s fees work on a sliding scale, which you can see on their website. As a rule of thumb, however, selling through your website will work out cheaper than selling through iTunes (who charge 30% at minimum). Unlike iTunes, which just give you a weekly sales report with toppling numbers - our approach gives you your own store with full access to your customer’s data, full control over the look and feel, much greater flexibility in what you sell and a much deeper level of business insights.

Other Services, Options and Relevant Prices

Please note that we do not charge you a percentage of your sales. After Topspin takes their fees, you will get 100% payment of the remainder.

We do charge a once-off fee for building you a website and various fees for marketing campaigns, online advertising and managing your fan-base.

These fees vary, depending on the workload involved. The best way to get a quote is to get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.

Some examples of the prices we charge:

  • Once off fee to build a music shop - €199
  • Building a simple website with Topspin Store - €399
