Our global capabilities to manage physical products are stronger than ever since we’ve partnered up with Republic of Music for campaigns outside of N. America. We also keep our labels and artists informed through regular updates on retailer best practices and industry know-how, so you stay primed for success in today’s dynamic music industry.

Technology

INgrooves is heavily invested and committed to providing the most transparent technology tools and services to give our partners the very best in customized sales analytics as well as a top-notch, end-to-end royalty processing and reporting system. We have always invested in technology first and we continually develop our proprietary system to offer more features that suit the day-to-day business needs of our partners.

Video

In addition to our comprehensive YouTube services described below, INgrooves works with you to deliver music videos to a vast network of streaming and download retailers including VEVO, Muzu and Vidzone. Our direct partnerships have secured hundreds of features and premieres for our partners.

YouTube

INgrooves has a direct relationship with YouTube that allows for our labels to have access to partner-only account features. We are a top 10 music account partner with several hundred channels & millions of subscribers.

YouTube has quickly become a major source of streaming revenue for many of our partners. INgrooves handles channel onboarding, the monetization process, as well as helping each of our partners to understand and properly utilize all of the available account features including: premium music video claims, advanced channel and video analytics, and channel optimization.

Our experienced, “YouTube Certified” team will work with you on customized solutions for each project, and manage your Content ID (YouTube’s proprietary software that claims copyrighted material in user uploaded material). We handle the entire process for you, from managing daily claiming tasks all the way through complicated rights management issues.
