Today is a good day. We’ve just released 4 brand new marketplaces live on stage at the Launch Conference in San Francisco. The new sites venture outside the audio space and into cartoons, celebrity pictures, infographics, and tattoos yet operating the same micro stock business model as we do at AudioMicro (i.e. crowd sourced content for as little as $1).
I’ll be posting video of the Launch presentation shortly. In the meantime, full details on the new sites can be found in the press release below and on our new corporate site. Check it out here.
Important to note is that our newly developed Content Management System (CMS) is available under white label. What this means is that not only we can quickly and easily clone and deploy new content marketplaces at will, but our technology is available for you to do so as well think WordPress for Content Licensing. If you’ve got content of your own that you wish to distribute simply drop us a line to get the process started.
Back in May of last year, we wondered what would come next after the launch of Audioo, well now we know. It’s amazing to look back on the past 10 months at what we’ve been able to do. We’re very much looking forward to the future.

The four new products were revealed onstage as part of the “2.0 Competition” at the Launch conference, being held February 23-24 in San Francisco.
“We’re already getting some great material from cartoonists, tattoo artists, red carpet photographers, and infographic designers.” said Ryan Born, founder and chief executive officer, AudioMicro. “If you’re an artist with wholly owned content, upload your work and grab a piece of our growing monthly royalty stream.”
