The music business has grown a lot with the advent of the Internet and its accessibility. Music appreciation and awareness has crossed the common boundaries of race and country and gender or religion.
We have accepted and appreciated all kinds of music from other parts of the world mainly through its availability in various sects of the media. This, in turn, has changed the way that people and their perspectives on cultures have become a more open and pragmatic means by which we should all celebrate.
But we should trace the beginnings of this worldwide music mania. How did it start when, in fact, music for so long has been confined to such a small audience that its reviews were mostly censored and banned when the content was controversial or too big for the time? It is at this time that we should celebrate the union of e-commerce and industry that has made the Internet a general marketplace and a foundation for cultivating talent and global perspective. With the flourishing of online tradable goods, the music business has expanded its horizons to a broader appreciative audience that has been educated to express themselves and prosper with the help of e-commerce. This move not only spurred the profit sharing that has now become the great music industries of our time, it has also paved the way for more local artists to make a change to succeed in the music business.
Discovery of the masters of underground music has had the opportunity to publish their records through the rise of e-commerce and indie bands, and they have also had a fair chance to be published, listened to and purchased online. The big music retailer wigs like iTunes, Amazon, and the like have made music sharing more accessible and affordable, as songs can now be purchased individually rather than the old-school purchase of the entire album to listen to that one. only song. . This retail packaging of individual songs has proven to be more profitable for the artist and record label than the toughest sale of the entire album.
Another advantage is the immediacy of this retail music availability. Once a song airs on the radio for premiere, it only takes a few minutes before millions of people around the world can purchase that song online. Through e-commerce, we can sell music at a rapid pace now more than ever. This lucrative music industry has encouraged more and more artists to develop and create music that can now be shared among a global audience that could be educated and cultivated on a positive stage for economic development and music appreciation.
While the emergence of online music shopping has also mitigated the rise in illegal unregulated music downloads, the benefits outweigh the harms on which the boom in the music industry should be based. E-commerce has improved music sales in the last decade than ever before.
