You have fans all around the world and want to make sure they can buy your music online on Amazon or iTunes without hassle. If a fan in the UK or Germany wants to buy your new single, you don’t want to miss out on the sale because of what is known as the ‘purchasing gap’. You may have noticed by now when trying to buy anything online- be it an e-book or app, you are directed to the local site of the platform you’re using. When signing up to iTunes, Amazon, eBay, etc and setting up your account, the application will automatically detect and display your location. Having signed up from a specific location, a buyer will need to complete their purchase from their local Amazon, for instance. If the links on your site direct a buyer in Germany to Amazon.com, instead of Amazon.de, that could be a problem. This is what the purchasing gap is all about.
The obvious solution would be to make sure that users from diverse geographic locations have a link to your music on their local iTunes or Amazon. But instead of you having to create separate links for buyers in different parts of the world, thanks to GeoRiot you can have just a single link.
All you need to do is sign up for free with GeoRiot, head to the dashboard and paste the link to your album on iTunes or Amazon there. You can add in some custom scenarios depending on your preferences. After you do that GeoRiot will generate a globalized link which you can place anywhere you wish on your site. So if anyone clicks on the link they will be automatically redirected to the Amazon or iTunes site in their locality, making it quick and easy to complete the purchase. They will be able to have an interface in their local language and also pay in their local currency.
GeoRiot also solves the problem of compatibility between different operating systems. It will enable an iTunes user to purchase your music from their Android device.
While sign-up is free, GeoRiot make up to 15% of the affiliate clicks only for those people who click through from countries outside your country of origin.
