    Just trying to get some ideas on how to monetize MP3's... yes I am ready for the folks that are going to say the non sense about MPAA but this are MP3's from artists that are going to give the music out free on mixtapes.

    Anyways on selected MP3's user views on YT can be 30-40k within a month easily if the song is a hit... now I know I could have directory and content lock the songs but then I have a better chance of people leaving due to the fact they don't want to fill out survey's etc.

    Any other ideas? Maybe a directory with linkbux?

    *BTW open to joint ventures but only on certain circumstances...

    If these MP3's are original and you have written consent from the artist to distribute then I would be happy to take a JV with you. Something like this is very easy to monetize, especially as the music industry is booming at the moment.

    No I do not have consent but another site has the song for download... I guess this is what you call freelance music since its for the listeners free.

    Is it already published on the Internet?

    Yeah it is new music that a site posted but it isn't on YT because it is that new... so range in views depending on how popular the song becomes can range from a few hundred in a day to a couple thousand in a day.

    For example I am taking a look at some videos that have already received 50k within 5 days...

    mixtapes are freely available on the Internet and many places allow you to download them freely for a very low fee or even free so there won't be any copyright issues since the composers/authors are not affiliated with those branded record companies.

    I would be interested to learn how to monetize in this area as well.

    I have a lot of experience with monetizing MP3 websites. Ringtone offers and particular music-related download offers do well. I can get them both set up for you. Contact me on AIM: adgatedan or skype: dpozzster
