Getting Started With Digital Music Distribution Letsmix

Internet technology has made it possible to make money by selling MP3 and CD downloads. No matter how many CDs you have made, or whether you just recorded a live gig, it is now possible to make money from your music by selling them online Letsmix.

There are many independent companies that can be called “Aggregators” by the big online music retailers. Their job is to collect all the independent artist music and deliver it each week. They also collect the money from the shops when your tracks are sold and transfer this money to them.

Some aggregators may take a small percentage of every sale and send you the remainder. This is obviously to cover their staff costs such as time and costs of delivery. However, some aggregators may prefer to pay a small upfront payment and let you keep all the money the store makes for the artist. Remember that while the online store does take a cut on the sale price of your music, you can still make up to 60c per track sold via a 99 cent download. Additionally, downloads don’t need to be printed at a large upfront cost. Therefore, any money you earn from MP3 sales will help you make a much bigger profit.

If you have CDs that you have made and would like to sell them online, it may be complicated and costly to establish your own web shop. Many businesses already have the technology so why not make use of them? You can just keep the cash and let them handle the selling.
