MUSIC vs. MODERN MATERIAL
1 fan would need to watch a music video 16 times per hour, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 4 weeks per month, 12 months per year for an artist to receive the same payment from YouTube as they would receive from Modern Material if 1 customer spends $499 in our store. Our Artists will receive 20% coMMission from all sales generated by their audience.
FANS vs. CUSTOMERS
ONE of our retail clients alone makes more money than the ENTIRE recorded music industry combined, which brought in $8 Billion per year. Nike generated $40 Billion last year, spending more than $10 Billion in endorsement deals with athletes.
But indie bands and indie brands don’t have hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend on design, product development and marketing. Considering the marketing influence of recording artists traveling the world, and the amount of money designers and entrepreneurs invest into their own businesses, we began to wonder why all artists, including the Material Girl herself, were only selling souvenir t-shirts at concerts, and we were making custom costumes inspired by Madonna for $5 per hour to get our fashion business going.
Our day job for dozens of retailers is to make sure nobody leaves a store empty handed, and once we get a customer, we give them a reason to come back to spend more money next month…and the next month…and the next month. We work with factories in China to produce thousands of units of each design where we pay workers $1.50 per hour so our designs can be sold to mainstream America shopping at Target and Walmart. If the tag says Made in China, more than likely we know someone in America working for the company that is getting rich as hell.
If you are and artist want to make money, there is nobody more qualified in the world to make it than our team. If you are a brand there’s no marketing influence more powerful than music. We just need to set up shop and get down to business, but rule number one: Music, Art & Design will always come first at Modern Material. You will have to pass the test to and prove you operate under ethical conditions because we believe in fair trade and fair share.
