This article will discuss Music distribution online. It will also answer some of the common questions musicians and bands have when they first think about getting their songs out there.
All the best!
Digital CDs can be a smart move because it is easier to make money than advertising and marketing.
Let's now turn our attention to the common questions...
1. What is the cost of music distribution online?
Distribution companies that are the best will charge 50c per track for your release. Your ISRC codes should be included in this price.
2. How much of my future royalties should I pay to distributors?
NOTHING! If anyone tries to grab your songwriting royalties, you should run a mile. They didn't write the song, so they only ever have to pay a once-off fee.
3. When will my music appear on iTunes?
You should be able to see your music on iTunes within a few hours of payment.
4. When will my music appear on spotify?
Spotify can take up to four weeks for your track to be available because they receive so much content. The music distributor company should be able to deliver it immediately.
5. What does the music distributor pay you?
The money can be deposited directly into your bank account.
6. What happens if my band breaks up?
This should be done free of cost by your music distributor company. Let them know.
If you are considering releasing your first album, I recommend that you do it as soon as possible. It is best to start getting feedback from music fans as soon as possible.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
