BurnLounge Simplifies Business Model

BurnLounge, the world's first fan driven digital download community, today announced a simplification of its business model that will eliminate the network marketing element of its business while providing greater business benefit for entrepreneurial members of the BurnLounge community.

The company intends to focus on its free service and will deliver increased rewards per sale. BurnLounge will continue to build strong partnerships and high-margin product lines providing a viable business for its members and artists. The free service is comprised of BL2, the software that enables anyone to open up their own download store and become a digital retailer, and BurnPages, a personal web page with customizable widgets.

"Despite our strong disagreement with the Federal Trade Commission's complaint against the network marketing portion of the business, BurnLounge has voluntarily decided to make this bold move to show our commitment to our artists, partners, and independent retailers who have supported us from the beginning," said Grant D. Johnson, chairman and chief executive officer, BurnLounge.

Johnson added, "Network marketing was a unique channel to promote our products, but not integral to the future success of the company and its retailers. We took this strategic action to benefit the greater BurnLounge community."

With the new model, BurnLounge retailers will earn even greater compensation per sale in a more traditional affiliate marketing structure. The new model will be simpler, and retailers will soon be able to expand their businesses beyond music into high-margin entertainment products such as movies, videos, portable devices, and accessories.

"Our retailers are BurnLounge's top priority, and we will make this transition together," said Ryan Dadd, co-founder, president and chief operating officer, BurnLounge. "They have played a vital role in the growth of our company and we remain committed to their success. BurnLounge will continue to give its retailers strong revenue-generating products."

BurnLounge serves as a fan-driven promotional channel, and provides a great platform for artists to empower fans to sell their music. The BurnLounge free service harnesses the power of personal referral to create a complete system of social commerce.

Stephen Murray, co-founder, president of entertainment and chief creative officer, BurnLounge, added, "The new model is a win-win situation for our members, the company, and for the industry. It is a revolutionary concept and a revolutionary product. Making this change to our business model to focus on our core products of BL2 and BurnPages makes it much easier to grow this community."
