Internet music company MP3.com says it has inked a deal with audio marketing producer StoreTunes to provide music found on MP3.com to U.S. businesses. Under the agreement, MP3.com and StoreTunes will let businesses select their own in-store music, advertising and promotional messages. Businesses will also be able to customize music playlists and messages via the Web by using a password-protected administration page.
MP3.com recently has made similar plays for the in-store music market in an attempt to expand its range of services. The company is working to provide a Web-based retail music and messaging service to stores owned by Petco Animal Supplies, a pet goods retail chain. In addition, it has launched a music service that tunes into phone callers on hold.
