Hi and welcome to "Sell music online" page. Here you'll find some ideas to market and sell your songs and music through the Internet. I know that it comes a bit like as a repetition, but I keep on saying that the Internet is the biggest event and the best that have happen for the unsigned band and artists. In the past, bands could only promote their music locally on gigs, and if they were lucky they got some airplay on the local radio, or on the student radio.
Now, stone age is passed, the age of the world wide web has arrived. Millions have the possibility to reach millions through the Internet. When you start to market, and sell music online, then make sure that you put all your eggs in one basket. There are many different ways to market,promote, and sell your music. Some promotions are free, while others you have to pay for.
Like I said, the more ways you walk to promote your music, the better the market and selling be, and thats why we are doing it for,isn't it so? I suppose..
