Nashville-based distribution and services company ONerpm has launched new exclusive marketing campaign technology for its customers.
The company says its new “marketing campaign management system,” called “Amplifier,” provides “on-demand insights and transparency” into customers’ marketing campaigns.
The technology also displays information on associated costs executed by ONerpm’s marketing and promotional teams around the world.
Founded by CEO Emmanuel Zunz, Nashville-headquartered ONErpm launched in 2010 with its distribution business initially targeting Brazil as a priority market.
As MBW explained in July in an interview with Zunz, ONerpm has since evolved from its DIY distribution beginnings. It still runs a DIY offering, but also invests in a smaller group of artists, like a record label would (similar to the Believe model).
Some artists (those in what ONerpm calls its “Taking Off” level) receive advances and receive internal marketing/PR/playlisting support to accelerate their careers; others (“Next Level”) might even share copyright ownership with ONErpm and receive a higher level of investment.
Now, with Amplifier, ONErpm says artists can see “precisely what marketing initiatives” their dedicated ONErpm marketing teams are working on around the world, while ONErpm can also assign artists to tasks that they access in their ONErpm dashboard.
Artists and ONErpm label partners can also access detailed, real-time statistics on the daily impact of promotional initiatives on their streaming numbers.
The amplifier is also available for ONerpm’s DIY artist user base, but the company says it’s simplified down to 29 specific tasks designed for a “step-by-step approach” along with a tutorial and good practice guides.
ONErpm claims that since Amplifier’s beta launch, more than 35,000 DIY campaigns have been created and completed.
The company further claims that the DIY versions with campaigns outperformed those without a booster. 129% on average in terms of flows during the month of September.
Additionally, ONErpm says future versions of Amplifier for the DIY level will integrate AI and machine learning “to provide a more personalized experience.”
“We believe that transparency is one of the keys to an artist’s success.”

ONErpm says Amplifier consists of 137 predefined marketing tasks assigned to its marketing teams and another 47 tasks assigned to artist teams.
Tasks are organized across multiple marketing verticals such as DSP, direct-to-fan, platform advertising, PR, radio promotions, OOH advertising, YouTube channel and video optimization, and much more, as well as pre-release and post-release activations with due dates. It also allows the creation of custom tasks.
ONerpm explains that its project managers create the campaigns and assign the number of tasks appropriate to the size of the artist and the desired campaign objectives to the teams of artists and the internal promotion specialists of ONerpm.
Once each task is completed, it is marked as complete with accompanying notes so that artist teams can understand what has been done.
In 2020 ONerpm created the first version of its proprietary content management system (CMS). He says the CMS was originally designed in part to help ONerpm’s project managers and marketing experts manage campaigns and client workflow.
Since 2020, ONErpm reports running over 35,000 campaigns on behalf of artists and labels around the world.
“We believe that transparency is one of the keys to an artist’s success,” said Emmanuel Zunz, CEO of OneRPM.
“Information is power, and while Amplifier initially helped our teams better manage their workflow, this new iteration is much more robust and results-driven as it allows us to better collaborate with our customers, while giving them powerful insights into the work we do here. to ONerpm, and the corresponding impact on their activity.
