    "And you can too!

    Getting the the Self-Titled album Metro on the iTunes Music Store was accomplished via CDBaby.com. They have a one-time $35 charge to get your CDs on their store, which isn't bad. Self-Titled made that back pretty quickly since the band sends credit card buyers there to get CDs. They ship worldwide, and take $3.99 commission for every CD sold.
    Once set up with them for CD Distribution, they will set your band up for Online Distribution for free! This is a terrific deal! The "Metro" album is actually available for pay download now on ITMS, Buymusic.com, and some other sites, but we're mostly pushing ITMS at the moment. CDBaby takes 9% commission & deals directly with Apple & the other services for you & electronically deposits your royalties (or will send you a check if you prefer). Apple pays about 65 cents for each song downloaded, so CDBaby gets about a nickel of that and your band will get the rest. We signed up with CDBaby in October and got on iTunes January 1st. Self-Titled was among the first really indy bands (unsigned, CDs in the basement) to get on the service. CDBaby submitted 6000 CDs by various artists, and as far as we know, they all eventually got on.
    Just being on ITMS is not enough, you really have to promote the heck out of the fact that you're there. The local Apple Store gives out iTunes installer CDs for Mac & Windows. We often walk in, grab a handful or two, then slit the shrinkwrap and put business cards in them saying the band is on ITMS, and give them out at shows (we also promote the band's website with stickers, etc.). Also, you've seen the link banner on the web site that send people either directly to the song on iTunes, or to a page where you can download the program if you don't have it yet. We've been sending out press releases through beatwire.com, PRweb, newspapers, radio stations, and anywhere else we can. We have other plans for promoting the online sales as well. Donating the proceeds to futureofmusic.org from "Equinox" is fine with us. We figure that if we really do come a good part of the way to the million downloads, we'll get some spillover purchases of the other ten songs from people who like what they hear :)
    Of course, with virtually no advertising budget to speak of, we are totally dependent on networking with other bands and music lovers around the nation who want to see the little guy stick it to the Big Record Companies. We really want to be the first artists to sell a million online, and we think we can do it. Tell your friends about us, post links, spread the word!"

    Interessant. Haben wir denn in unseren Reihen hinreichend musikbegabte Leute, für die dieser Tipp in Frage kommen könnte?
