BurnLounge Makes Anyone a Music Download Retailer


Move over iTunes, that’s all I can say. Why? Read this:

“Startup digital music company BurnLounge wants to democratize the music retail business. The Web-based service provides the music library, e-commerce tools and business management software for virtually anyone to own and operate their own digital download store. The company’s founders hope to recruit everyday music fans, allowing each to decide which acts they want to feature and promote, as a sort of digital guerrilla marketing play. ”It’s the reincarnation of the corner record store,” BurnLounge president/COO and co-founder Ryan Dadd says. “This whole concept is about the next generation of retail. It’s about marketing to affinity groups, to people with shared interests.”
