I remember the days when iTunes was just starting out. Digital music was complicated back then. And it’s only become more diverse and complex today.
If you’re an artist, you have a lot of choices to make. Obviously you want to be on iTunes and Amazon because they are huge. That’s where people are going to buy your tunes. Spotify got real big, real quick; if you want to get some new fans, having your tracks play on Spotify is a big deal. But it can’t be easy to do all that.
Then you have other stores, which might be easier to work with or take less of your money. But you do all the marketing yourself.
With TuneCore, you pay an annual fee (such as $29.99 per album,) and they take care of the rest. You collect all the money.
It’s probably worth a look. At least, check out their blog. It’s full of tips and info like this:
Making money in the music biz, finding new artists, staying healthy, it’s all there!
