At the beginning of the month we have switched off the advertising completely and pointed out the donation option. We hoped that we could cover the costs only with donations. Unfortunately the donations are not enough, there are too few: After almost half a month, only 23% of the donation target was reached.

The website has about 10.000 visitors daily, which causes about 400-500GB traffic per day. We pay out 70% to the artists. Unfortunately the income from the sales is not enough to run this website to cover the costs. If the management would get a salary or if we had paid employees, the operation of the website would not be possible at all.

For this reason and to cover the considerable costs, which arise from the free use, we have now had to reactivate the advertising.

Interesting, has anyone tried to act as a broker to close more sales and get music used in more projects yet?

Filmmusic.io is only one person. No brokers.
