Altavoz, Inc. is full service entertainment company offering digital and physical distribution services to independent suppliers. As Altavoz works with artists with no affiliation to a major distributor. These independent artists make up 90% of the marketplace. Distributors such as Sony, Universal, and Warner/Electra/Atlantic are a very small share. The 90% are left with few distribution partners and channels and Altavoz has benefited over the last three years filling in where our larger competitors just didn’t have the resources to tackle. Altavoz has a proprietary “Fan Heat Map” and BuyingThis(tm) technologies that provides real time market intelligence to pinpoint product for placement in brick and mortar based upon online interactions. Altavoz fills the gap for these independent labels by providing a specialized industry platform that allows for smaller quantity distribution using marketing intelligence from our “Fan Heat Map” and access to stores through a “curated” catalog.
Altavoz is building an accessible, cloud-based software platform for the 90% of content suppliers via a proprietary Distribution as a Service (DaaS) system. Through this DaaS for content distribution platform, Altavoz offers a real-time awareness capability that aggregates and analyzes industry and internal data into a “Fan Heat Map,” giving our suppliers and retail partners actionable, strategic sales and marketing intelligence on each product. This data will be augmented by the company’s BuyingThis app, which works as a widget on suppliers’ websites or fans’ smartphones allowing fans/customers to signal that they’re interested in buying a product and where.
Products / Services
Altavoz is the conduit between the music label (band/artist) and the retail outlet. Retailers cannot have accounts with the producer of every product they put on their store shelves, so labels rely on distributors to sell the music product on their behalf. Altavoz Distribution as a Service platform gets our suppliers entertainment releases into 2000 digital downloads, streaming and radio outlets and for physical release over 10,000 retailers from Amazon to mom & pops shops and the biggest retailers in entertainment.
Fan Heat Map
Altavoz is developing proprietary technology called a “Fan Heat Map” which collects and aggregates all communication and activity around a given music product, act or book in real-time, thus helping retailers and suppliers make strategic business decisions.
This application sits as a widget on supplier’s website or on a smart phone that allows fans/customers to signal that they’re interested in buying something and where they are considering buying it.
