Here at Around The Sound we know that making it can be hard. That’s why we’re offering Perth and WA bands the opportunity to make some money to pay for recording, instruments, your next your, anything you need to help you on the road to stardom.
Interested? Read on or get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
Around The Sound is Perth’s only locally produced music magazine and website. Our charter is to raise the profile of Western Australian original music and to report news and stories about what’s happening in music locally, nationally and internationally.
Our magazine is distributed fortnightly to 10,000 people who love our gig guide and the stories that we tell. We also include vouchers for our readers to the value of $100+ in each edition.
Sharing our profits
Around The Sound’s profits go to Prepare Produce Provide, a charity that provides opportunities for indigenous students across the state to learn skills and create networks in the Arts, Hospitality and Tourism sectors. We also donate profits to The Pack Australia, an organisation developing a streaming service for unsigned artists that will pay you a fair return on your music.
Around The Sound magazine sells for $2.00 a copy.
Fundraising for your band
Selling Around The Sound magazine provides an opportunity for your band to raise funds by taking on copies to sell to your family, friends, fans, anyone you know who is interested in music.
In simple terms, your band provides the sales workforce in return for the opportunity to be involved in a significant fundraising activity.
Here’s how it works
- Around The Sound sells to customers for $2.00
- profits after cost of production and sales go to charity
- 50 cents from the sale of each magazine your band sells goes directly to your band.
A revenue stream for your band
- 1,000 copies = $500
- 2,000 copies = $1,000
- 5,000 copies = $2,500
- 10,000 copies = $5,000
You choose how many copies you would like to sell and how often.
We recommend you take the equivalent of 30 copies for each person in your band.
Around The Sound is published fortnightly, so you can take copies regularly or do it as an occasional fundraiser. How often you get involved and how many copies you choose to sell is up to your band.
Please get in touch, we would love to work with you.
By helping us to sell copies of Around The Sound you’re helping the magazine get out to new audiences, helping us to help Prepare Produce Provide and The Pack Australia and raising funds for your band.
