[tweetmeme source= 'klcreative' only_single=false]Email addresses and zip codes are valuable commodities to musicians trying to conduct a tour or sell CDs, so anything that gives an extra incentive for fans to sign up is often worth testing out.
Here’s a great widget that rewards fans who provide their email address and zipcode to favorite artists; it trades them a music download for information. It also allows them to “pay what they will” if they feel so inclined. The widget is customizable, pretty simple to embed just about anywhere, free to the artist until they actually collect money, and the information provided by fans can be downloaded into a spreadsheet for easy transfer to a mailing list or street team applications. Here’s a sample widget–visit the website to check out what else can be done! Noisetrade
