#187 – A Platform That Provides the Data You Need To Succeed

Interview with Vasja Veber

A Platform That Provides the Data You Need To Succeed

What IMDB has done for the movie industry is what Vibrate is doing for the music business. 

How popular are you as an artist? Are your followers a good reflection on your success, or even your visibility? Is your album or touring success an accurate barometer of where your career is at?

Vibrate helps with the analytics of it all. It provides the data to show you that a slightly lower fan base isn’t such a bad thing if their engagement in your musical path is higher.

Vasja Veber, the creator and co-found of Vibrate, is an experienced music business professional with a background in marketing. After earning his Master’s degree in economics, he co-founded a digital marketing agency and made a senior partner in an event management company. Knowing his way around brands and events led him into the music industry. He co-founded a music management company, taking overall business aspects of a famous DJ’s career and his music label and a start-up called Viberate.com, a live music marketplace. In addition, he regularly speaks at industry events such as WMC, Midem, and LMC.
