How To Sell Music
Selling Music online can be a complex and time-consuming process. But, It is essential to choose the right platforms that could bring progress in your musical career. The following is the tutorial on how to sell music.
I have been a music producer for the past 8 years and one of the most frequent questions asked by my friends is ‘How to Sell Music?‘. There are various ways to sell your music. My musical journey was challenging but, one thing that made me commit to keep working was competing with myself. As an artist, we all have uniqueness in ourselves. Always make sure to polish this uniqueness and bring quality to your music.
There are various ways to sell your music. You can sell your music on Streaming Platforms (through Distributors), Individual Stores, or Your website. But, all of the given options have their weaknesses. i.e. Distributors often have annual subscriptions, Independent Musical Stores often have shady policies and may steal your work, and Running your website could be costly. But, there is one far better and secure way to sell music. Here, I would love to introduce: RedVilla.
