When visiting the premium section of the Zedge app, consumers will be able to access a wide portfolio of professionally created content, including HD wallpapers, exclusive ringtones, music, videos and 3D-augmented reality figures created by digital artists, photographers, illustrators, musicians and audio engineers from around the world.
Zedge Premium was created by artists for artists, affording creators a variety of ways to promote, market and sell their art within Zedge; full control and ownership of their creations; an easy and intuitive user interface; and a team dedicated to maximizing overall performance including engagement and sales.
“We’re excited to finally offer amateur, semi-pro and professional artists an opportunity to promote and sell on our proven platform, which has successfully been used for mass distribution for more than a decade,” said Tom Arnoy, co-founder and CEO of Zedge. “Our potential is impressive with many existing artists already surpassing millions of downloads of their content even prior to the launch of Zedge Premium. Enabling the platform with promotional and monetization capabilities in an artist friendly fashion is really powerful.”
“Initial results for Zedge Premium are very encouraging; our users are generating revenue for artists at higher rates than we'd originally projected," said Tim Quirk, SVP of Marketplace. “We're getting good feedback from our launch partners and look forward to massively scaling the talent pool by rolling out a self-serve platform, to provide artists an easy way to launch and promote their own storefront.”
