About

Rendez-Vous Digital is a french-based company specialized in the acquisition, licensing, marketing and monetization of music and video content. Our rich and varied repertoire is now composed of over 180 000 recordings spanning a wide range of traditional and contemporary genres from all eras and from all around the world

Background

The founders have been working in the music business for the last three decades and possess significant experience in marketing. After launching a B2B music startup in early 2000, they launched The Orchard’s french division and managed it from 2003 to 2007, making them pioneers of the digital music business in Europe

Engagement

Music, creativity and technology are our passions. Our mission is to continue blending these three elements into business models that generate revenue for artists, producers and publishers. This vision has led our company to become a worldwide leader in monetization of digital audio and video content

In order for Rendez-Vous Digital to be versatile in technology, creativity and business development, we built our experience on the long term, as well as a workforce engaged on every level of our activities

Content Management System

To serve at best our business, we have developed our proprietary CMS (Content Management System) implemented with the latest technologies. This workstation represents the core engine driving Rendez-Vous Digital’s productivity. Connected to dozens of aggregators, music metadata databases, metadata translation services, audio analysis and fingerprinting engines, our powerful CMS offers us the means to curate metadata as well as create and release an impressive amount of audio and video products to virtually all download and streaming services

Creativity and marketing are our primary assets. To build our consumer base online, we create, design and brand our products (compilations, collections, playlists, websites, YouTube channels, etc.). Learning the inner workings of online retailers and operating the metadata of each product accordingly is key to develop revenues in the online world. We also translate our metadata in different languages to gain visibility. We establish long term strategies to make our products visible and appealing for consumers worldwide whether it be for niche markets or popular trends

Strategic & Creative Marketing

Wordwide Digital Distribution

Our direct deals with download and streaming services as well as our partnerships with leading aggregators enable us to release our products to the widest possible network. We deliver releases to retailers such as iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, Google Play, Spotify or Deezer across more to 200 countries. Our CMS allows us to plan every distribution aspect of our releases by targeting specific retailers with specific product characteristics. This enables us to adapt, optimise and release each one of our products to the retailers and countries of our choice

Our experience in product promotion and online advertising allows us to maximize our products’ coverage. Being specialists of search engine optimization helps, but in today’s digital world, that isn’t enough. We also market our products to the end-consumer through retailer product placements, end-to-end search engine advertising and social media campaigns. Investing to push products forward is also an important aspect of our business model

Social Promotion & Advertising

Analytics & Royalty Accounting

Our CMS was developed with big data technology in mind to deeply analyze sales trends and to follow-up on what type of products are performing in relation to specific countries and retailers. These past years we have gathered invaluable data from our sales by analyzing performances according to streams, genres, pricing, keywords, etc. By identifying and replicating successful trends, we achieved immense growth. Our analytics and accounting technology enables us to treat unlimited operations and send-out detailed quarterly royalty reports and statements to our clients

All our clients benefit from our synchronization and licensing opportunities program. We place music in films, TV shows, commercials and games as well as conducting physical and digital compilations and premium-line partnerships with major labels worldwide. We regularly propose new licensing opportunities to our clients.
