3PLET, sell your album as an app
While musical industry is suffering a major crisis, russians from 3PLET try to offer alternatives to musicians who want to sell their albums online.
3PLET is a new online service that gives you the opportunity to sell your album as an app for your smartphone or tablet (iTunes, Windows Marketplace and GooglePlay). You can combine music, pictures, texts (lyrics, artist introduction...) on a global platform in order to promote your artistic identity. You can even add links to your YouTube channel, website or social network pages.
The app is available for free and features three songs. It will then be possible to unlock the full album via in-app purchase (pricing is defined by the artists and can vary). 3PLET charges fees per sale.
Distribution rights on 3PLET are not exclusive, so you are still free to distribute your albums on other platforms.
Discover 3PLET on 3plet.ru.
