Just an idea of how to use youtube in favour of musicoin and artists.
Hello friends, i would like to share with you an idea i have.
I'm recording some original tracks in the studio with my organ trio, I'm also video recording the sessions... so...
my idea is that when ill upload the tracks to musicoin i could say or offer to the listeners that if they tip they could leave their e-mail so i can added it to the video recording of the session from the studio or the live performance that i have private in youtube so they can watch it as a bonus.
if musicoin would think that this is a good idea they could add a button next to the ''tip'' button that when somebody tips it would highlight and the listener would press it to leave his e-mail.
what do you think??? i would love some comments on this.
cheers from athens greece.
