About MusikPitch:

MusikPitch brings the power of crowdsourcing to the songwriting industry. It’s an online marketplace that connects talented songwriters with music supervisors, studios, brands, and anyone else looking for custom songs and music. Clients post their specific song requirements to MusikPitch, and a passionate community of songwriters from around the world compete by submitting their original tracks for each opportunity. It’s an easier and far more efficient way for companies to find the right talent for their songwriting needs, while simultaneously empowering the songwriting community with a brand new market for their music making talents.

The MusikPitch marketplace can be used for virtually any custom songs or sounds —whether it’s for a company, studio, or individual. Project samples include music for corporate branding, movie trailers, TV shows, video games, as well as personal songs for reunions, parties, weddings, schools, and more. MusikPitch charges a small flat fee and 15% of the prize fee to post a new music project. The site and service are completely free for songwriters.

For brands and music supervisors:
It’s never been easier to source custom music. As soon as a project holder posts a new project, songwriters begin competing for the project’s prize. MusikPitch’s well-developed songwriter community lets corporate brands and music supervisors tap into the diverse skills and creativity of established songwriters with years of industry experience, as well as emerging and independent talent. The unique song pitching format eliminates the risk typically associated with hiring a songwriter. At the end of the project, clients simply pick their favorite song, release the prize to the winning songwriter, and leave with a custom song they know they love. With MusikPitch, companies source custom songs on their own terms, with 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

For songwriters:
Regardless of location, background, or experience, talented songwriters can get their music heard and win contracts on MusikPitch. The online marketplace offers a professional and secure environment for songwriters to find interesting projects, compete for specific opportunities, grow their client base, and most importantly — get paid for their talent and skills in an increasingly challenging industry. MusikPitch songwriters instantly see the latest opportunities from a wide range of clients and project types. It’s a straightforward approach that shows who needs custom music, what kind of song they want, and what they’re willing to pay.

    Pretend you are a filmmaker or advertising agent needing a custom song for a film or commercial. Then visit http://musikpitch.com and take a look at the homepage for 5 seconds. As someone needing music, would you understand MusikPitch and see the benefit of using it right away? Absolutely.  It’s a very eye catching, fun looking site.   From my brief look, I completely understand how it works and I see the benefits of getting to choose from multiple composers.
    Say you were ready to get a custom song made; how easy or hard is it to get started from the MusikPitch homepage? It’s extremely easy to begin using.  I simply found my category, typed in a few simple requests and I was ready to begin.    From the categories listed above, I knew I wanted to begin with “Launch Contest” because after all, that is the main idea behind the website.  I would immediately understand that that is where I need to begin.
    Do you find the order of steps to take logical? To me, the steps are in perfect order.  If the person fills them out completely, as instructed above the steps, I believe there shouldn’t have to be any questions as to what they are seeking when an artist reads over their request.
    I think that by offering 100% money back program, your site will be very competitve.  I feel this guarantee helps to make the customer feel secure about using your service, but yet keeps the quality of the artist on the right path.  It makes me feel very comfortable with your site.

    The first thing that catches my attention is the illustrations. They obviously indicate an order to some sort of way to get music. I go over the 5 seconds and take another 5 or 6 to read an understand the steps described under each illustration. Honestly, at first sight, the website gives me the impression that you will be able to make some sort of money by way of making music and posting it here. Relating the money bag to the music makes it seem so and does not give me the impression of naming my own price. Maybe if the illustrations/steps were brought down a bit on the homepage and maybe focusing on a Flash intro area up top would help grab attention with some cathcy lines or motto. After assesing what the site does and what it’s about, I probably would be inclined to look into using the services or at least researching the possibilities by looking up reviews or whatnot.

    The website seems quite simple to use. The concept of a contest to make music is not so appealing. All of the steps are very clear. Even for someone with little or no experience in the industry, for example a new .com startup would find it comforting to know that this site offers such a user-friendly website.

    At first I did not feel 100% comfortable with the concept of the website. After looking around for several minutes, I discovered the Browse Contest tab. This makes me see the idea in a whole new light. As I had mentioned earlier, maybe it is the way it was presented on the homepage that had me a little confused. Great idea! Work on the homepage and the idea will seem more inviting and exciting for both people looking for music and those making it.
