The Artist Penthouse is a fun way to get your fans to pay you to see content that no one else gets to see - it's like the ultimate fan club. You create web pages that are only accessible after payment. These pages contain videos, pictures, and music. The videos can be you in the music studio, live in concert, on your living room sofa - do whatever you know your fans will find entertaining. You can create as many of these private pages as you want! You can have one called Winter 2020, another called Spring 2020, and one called Summer 2020. Each of them will contain different content for your fans to enjoy viewing or hearing. You might even acquire a new fan that pays for access to all three of them at the same time!
Set Up Your Artist Penthouse
1. Inside your Artist Account click Fans in the top menu, then Artist Penthouse on the left.
2. Click the Add Access button and fill out the form.
3. After creating the Artist Penthouse asset, you need to go to the Site Builder to create these specific pages and select the content you want to place in the Artist Penthouse section of your site.

4. In your Artist Site Builder, go to Features and drag the Artist Penthouse Feature onto your page.
5. In the Settings window, select the Artist Penthouse asset you want to sell in this feature and customize the feature's text, button, background, border, and shadow.
6. Your finished feature will look something like the image below. Your fans will Add to Cart, go to their cart to complete checkout, and then the Add to Cart button will change to an Access button that allows them entry into your Artist Penthouse!
Additional Info & Settings
- Videos - Use a Video Feature for this.
- Music - There is a special Private Music Player Feature available. Its behavior is different from the common Playlist feature; tracks inside the Private Music Player Feature are not added to the Rhythmic Rebellion Player but are played directly on the page. It was tailored so because such song recordings are not meant to be publicly available. Check out this article to get more info.
- Articles / Text Content - Use the common Text Feature for this.
- Photos / Images - Use the Gallery Feature for this.
- Limited Artist Contact - There is a Contact Feature available for this. When the Contact Feature is placed on the Artist Penthouse pages, all messages sent by email from the artist will have a special label [Artist Penthouse Title] in the title, to easily sort the incoming emails and manage the correspondence. Place the Artist Penthouse Feature on the home page to promote your private content.
- Artist Penthouse Feature - This feature is a promo feature for your gated (private) content. Place it to your website to advertise your Artist Penthouse pages and provide your fans access upon purchase.
