For well over a decade, Outbound Music has sought out great songs and has established partnerships with the creators and performers of those songs. Outbound Music promotes that music primarily through its online radio stations. These radio stations are like no other stations. The first thing that sets them apart is the underlying business model. Unlike the traditional business model for radio, Outbound Music steers away from the licensing agencies in favor of partnering directly with the creators and performers of music. Outbound Music artists receive 85% of the radio-generated ad revenue. This makes the artists, collectively, the majority partner of OutboundMusic.com. In contrast, other internet radio stations pay perhaps up to 60% or 70% of their revenue to the licensing agencies who then distribute that revenue, less the agencies' fees, to the owners of the music. Not being bound to licensing restrictions also means that Outbound Music is able to broadcast worldwide. Another thing that sets Outbound Music internet radio apart from other online radio stations is that only songs by Outbound Music partner artists are in rotation. While these songs are also being aired on traditional internet radio stations, they are not receiving the high rotation they receive on Outbound Music internet radio.
Outbound Music also offers online distribution. Digital and physical music as well as band merchandise may be sold in an artist's Outbound Music store. Artists receive 85% of the retail price from those sales. Outbound Music covers the credit card processing fees.
Radio broadcast and distribution is only phase one of Outbound Music's plan. They are currently expanding to feature regional music around the globe. In the future, they plan to venture into worldwide booking and licensing music to 3rd party radio stations and film/tv.
