Do Social Networking Sites Impact Artists Incomes

Does being on social networking sites impact an artist’s income? According to the results of a study done by Dave Carter, Music Technology Lecturer at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Griffith University. it does. The Music Void has an exclusive on this report this morning.

Although done on a small representative group of independent Australian artists, only 99 were followed from 2006 to 2009, all distributed by the same company, it does break this group down into three categories:

Artists with a low profile (little to no media coverage/airplay)
Emerging profile (formed within the last 3 years, small to medium venues)
Established profile (3+ years, regular coverage in national media, medium to large venues).

This report clearly illustrates how artists on mulitple interlocking sites earned the most and which sites offered the best returns.
