WARM is a completely new data set to the music industry. By knowing, in real-time when your music is being played, you have e new tool to help you locate your emerging markets and fanbase. The radio is by far, the format with most listeners on, and according to the last UNESCO report, 94% of the worlds population listens to radio in a week.
We have seen a tendency that f.ex genre specific and college radios are playing a lot of independent music, and not necessarily the commercial top hits like the biggest radios.
By knowing when and where you are being played on radio, you can use this information to improve f.ex tourbooking, controlling of radio promotion and in general establish a better insight on where your listeners and fans are, as the demographics f.ex could be very precise.”
