MusicWeb's financial position has
improved to the extent that I no
longer need to make direct appeals
for money. If you have made a standing
order payment you may now cancel
that. I am deeply appreciative of
your help. Now read on .......
MusicWeb is a free
service and so far we have managed to
avoid making registration or charging
a necessity. We can do this simply because
nobody gets paid for working on MusicWeb.
This also means we can post many more
reviews than other sites such as Classics
Today or magazines such as Gramophone
who pay their reviewers.
Even so, it is very expensive running
a website that has the number of visitors
There are ways you can ensure we are
able to keep up the service. Below I
outline some ideas for ways in which
you can help support musicweb.
1) At the top, sides and bottom of each
review you will see small Google text
adverts. Google are very good at finding
appropriate services to advertise relevant
to our pages. Each time you visit MusicWeb
please click on these links and take a
look at the sites being offered. We get
paid if you do this. This is a good source
of income for us so please help us here.
2) Wherever possible
we make sales links on each review so
that you can buy the disc from Amazon.co.uk
or Amazon.com For years Amazon.com has
not made available most of the discs we
review but things have improved there
recently. I know it is possible to hunt
around and find some discs cheaper elsewhere
but if you do that you deprive MusicWeb
of income. Amazon prices are quite reasonable.
3) Finally MusicWeb
represents a number of labels and this
is where we can make more money that
from anything else. On the site you
will find pages for Gerard
Music Society, Ashgate
(a very successful label and cheap),
(almost as successful), Hyperion,
Artist , Redcliffe
Recordings and Gasparo.
Do take a look at each of these.
