2. What can we expect from the company in 2017?
Darryl Ballantyne: In 2017, LyricFind will launch LyricMerch, an on-demand printing service for lyrics merchandise. The service will allow users to design their own shirt, coffee mug, phone case, and more using any line from millions of licensed lyrics – and get it made and shipped directly to them.
Best of all, music publishers and songwriters will see a substantial royalty from the service, creating a brand new revenue stream for them. We’ll also continue to expand our international licensing and content, along with new languages, and introduce a few other new products as well.
3. What will you be busy with in 2017?
Darryl Ballantyne: Aside from launching LyricMerch and other products, we’ll be continuing to build the database and expand internationally, as well as expanding the team to process more content, more languages, and more rights than ever before. And of course, planning for 2018 – but those plans will remain secret for now!
