The company has launched a SaaS platform and a two-sided marketplace, connecting musicians and recording studios, while also taking care of payment/financial safety. The goal is to make it easier for musicians to find the exact studio that fits their needs and matches their financial circumstances, and generally to decrease the hassle of finding, booking, and paying for studio time.
The company has launched a two-sided platform, facilitating 40+ recording studios across the country, and have 600+ registered users (musicians), who rents the studios on an hourly/session basis.
Why introduce the solution now
Convenience is key
Convenience and efficiency are becoming important factors across most industries. The same goes for musicians, who just want to focus on creating music.
Sharing economy is booming and has been so for over a decade. But the music industry hasn’t fully adapted yet, even though it’s one of the industries that could benefit the most.
Musicians want the professional sound that can only be recorded in a real studio, but there are no on-demand or ideal solutions for when the inspiration hits them.
The customers are typically male musicians between 16 and 35, but by having a rather small sample, and having experienced both female and older customers, the company does not yet wish to conclude that this is their main target group, and they continuously analyze all data coming in to become more concrete on the main customers.
All users sign up for free, the company takes a 16% commission of all bookings. They also have a subscription model for 149 DKK a month, where the commission is reduced to 8%.
