Music Distribution Service
Audio streaming applications have become the new black, delivering an effortless
user experience to receive music in a matter of clicks. Meanwhile, digital distribution
comes in handy for artists in order to grow visibility, get heard, and sell their sound.
However, it can be challenging to compete with renowned distribution platforms
like YouTube Music, Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Deezer, and Tidal. All of
them have spent years growing a strong user base to become who they are now. Despite this,
our client rolled out his own music distribution service to release music across Algerian
market. This is where he was born, lives, and runs businesses that drive the local
With Terox (that's what this app is called), local musicians or labels can
distribute music across major music platforms. The service provides advanced stats on
records, platforms, and earnings. Now, let's discuss each stage of the music distribution
service development flow in more detail.
Before jumping into the music distribution service development, we’ve considered
several significant points beforehand. First of all, we processed the planning phase to
ensure we have a shared vision and a clear idea of the entire project. Without going too
technical, we defined who will use an app, what options it will include, how it will look
like and run on users’ devices. Based on that, we figured out what we should do to reach it
within an allocated budget and go-to-market strategy.
To increase Terox competitive chances on the streaming app market, we’ve
analyzed what stands behind global market leaders’ success (with local input, of course) to
deliver exceptional features allowing to distribute music frictionlessly. Once we’ve
gathered all the findings and opportunities, we began crafting intuitive, user-friendly
visual solutions. After validating UI/UX design and giving the green light to delivery, we
started the very development. When all version releases have been completed, we beta tested
the mobile app and rolled out the public release.
We had to craft two distinct platforms and deliver UI/UX design
solutions covering several users’ groups: a mobile version for artists and an admin
panel for managers.
Let’s unlock the features implemented.
To ensure users can sell music online as easily as possible, we utilized
these basic functions:
Two-factor authentication (also known as two-factor auth, T-FA, or 2FA)
secures users’ accounts in the system beyond just a username and an app password,
ensuring access is not granted outside. This way, instead of only creating a
password to log in, consumers also must verify their email/phone number plus enter
their bank account number.
After tracks have been recorded, it is high time for creating and
releasing a single or an album. Artists can create an overall theme, provide release
information, position tracks, and maintain the whole message. Terox content
specialists curate each and every artwork while uploading.
Users have basic edit permissions at their account level so that they
could add or delete particular items.
Once an artist has uploaded a track, it is sent to service curators.
Users can track release status in real-time: Pending, Approved, or Rejected.
To make this music distribution service even more outstanding, we
integrated several advanced features. Here are some of them:
A social media sharing function allows artists to generate a single link
for sharing their content through messaging services. Viewers can simply swipe up to
explore the artwork.
Users dive into the numbers and see report data on artwork performance
so that they can measure the success and check what should be done better in the
Publishers can track earnings (for example, for a particular track per
month) and request payments. The service admin will receive a notification. In-app
payouts are not available. This way, an artist should visit a branch to get paid for
Messages popping up on the user’s device allow them to opt-in to timely
updates and effectively re-engage customers with personalized content.
In-app support allows publishers to interact with customer service and
request live assistance directly from their smartphones. What’s more, there are
And now let's’ reveal features for Terox specialists.
Content specialists can track, edit, manage any part of an account, see
the whole list of users, give account access, or change access level.
An admin processes requests, listens to pending tracks, checks an
artwork for plagiarism. After that, managers decide whether to approve or reject a
release (single status is updated manually).
Managers can reupload singles in respective file formats to sound even
greater on a particular music distribution service.
Terox managers can spread a release across multiple distribution
platforms like YouTube Music, Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Deezer,
Admins get access to full stats on plans that musicians/labels select
while publishing. Managers keep track on how much artists make per single/album
sale. Also, Terox content specialists upload analytics for users.
Managers keep track of publishers' earnings per release and then make
payments through a bank.
In-app chat allows a support team to have text-based conversations with
customers via the web.
We developed a mobile version, along with a web application, in three
Additionally, we’ve integrated Twilio (for in-app chat) and Firebase (for texting).
The project involved a full-stack developer, a mobile developer, a UI/UX
designer, and a project manager.
So that the music distribution service can bring stable revenue streams, we
considered the monetization strategy. Let’s single out some details. When an artist uploads
an artwork, they can choose from three plans:
A publisher pays nothing, but has an 80% return.
A user pays a one-time €10 fee and receives 90% of the whole
An artist/label pays €10 per year and gets 100% profit.
Since music streaming service development remains a hot trend, you have all
chances to get your share of the market. Still, to conquer business hills with your app, you
should jump into the niche as early as possible. The best part about it is finding a
top-notch software vendor. OpenGeeksLab is here to help.
