The idea is that [BandPage and Deezer] will use the mountains of data they both collect to present fans with offers from BandPage at what is hopefully the right time to make a sale. Not every listener will get the same offers at the same times, but only those that have been identified as potentially truly interested via some actions they have taken, such as listening to the same artist many times, favoriting several songs, etc. Over 500,000 artists have already set up special offers on BandPage, so the packages are ready to sell, they just need to be shown to the right people at the opportune time. – Hugh McIntyre, Forbes
