LyricFind, the world’s leader in legal lyric solutions, announced today at SF Music Tech the launch of “Lyrics for Free,” an ad-supported application that integrates millions of licensed lyrics from LyricFind’s database to any website or mobile application for free. Using LyricFind’s standard Web Service 2.0 APIs, there are no set-up fees, no monthly or CPM minimums, and once certain traffic levels are met, sites will be able to share in the ad revenue. LyricFind’s ad network monetizes the lyrics traffic to compensate music publishers, and LyricFind ensures all tracks are properly licensed.
“‘Lyrics’ is the most popular search term online, so any website or mobile app that offers music-related content can increase their unique users, page views, and time spent on their site by integrating lyric content,” said Darryl Ballantyne, CEO of LyricFind. “We repeatedly heard from potential clients that the barrier to adding lyrics was minimum commitments; Lyrics for Free removes the CPM and minimum restrictions, and is a no-risk option to easily add song lyrics to your service.”
Lyrics for Free was tested by several LyricFind partners over the past three months, including Lyrics.net, Muziic, TuneGenie, TuneUp Media, SongFacts, Quu Radio, AlbumRankings.com, Lyrics.sg, and more.
“LyricFind’s Lyrics For Free was the obvious choice for lyrics integration on Muziic,” said David Nelson, Co-Founder of Muziic.com “The combination of no financial commitment, ease of integration and the potential income stream is an offer unmatched by any provider.”
“LyricFind’s Lyrics For Free made it simple for us to add legal, authorized content to our domain,” said Yigal Ben Efraim, CEO of Stands4, LLC, which operates Lyrics.net. “Even better, we do not have to worry about meeting monthly minimums or CPMs that risked losing money on the deal. It’s the best possible price: free.”
