Every artist dreams to have a huge fan base shouting ‘once more’ or have a sold-out event or break sales records at least once. A new artist starts on the streets or small, but if luck is on his/her side no one can stop him/her to become a celebrity.
Today, after you have created songs as well as completed the mixing & mastering process you can get your music on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, YouTube, etc. for streaming and downloading. In the past, music distribution across the nation was a challenge. It needed artists to get approved by a record label and even lose control of copyrights, promotion, and pricing.
Today, you can sell music online without losing copyright or pricing control. You can choose which streaming services or music companies you desire to launch your album on. Good music is never out of demand and with evolving technology, the music sector adapts to the user’s listening habits and preferences. Streaming apps like Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, and more make your songs easily available to global music lovers.
Use music distribution services to make album distribution across the internet simple. There are many distributors or aggregators available on the internet. However, their features differ like some take a percentage of your royalties, while a few offer annual subscription plans for either limited or unlimited releases.
MusicDigi for example is a distribution service that enables you to get your music on Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, Tik Tok, iTunes, and many other streaming services and music companies. Create an account paying $59.99 for one year and upload unlimited songs on more than 100 online music stores.
The best thing is you can sell your music on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Deezer, etc., and get 100% royalties deposited in your account as soon as some music fan streams or downloads your song. You even get to leverage an exclusive feature called Spotify Windowing. It allows artists to get their new songs on Spotify Premium 2 weeks before the official release date. Spotify Premium subscribers get to enjoy the new release a couple of weeks before the free tier.
After a successful digital music distribution process, you will need to promote your new song or album. Social media is a convenient location to synch other platforms like your website, blog, YouTube videos, and more. Post powerful content associated with your newly released single to keep the fire burning. It can be short clips of the music video or creation process or even bloopers. It helps to connect with your fan and strengthen the relationship.
Get your music on TikTok because users can pull it out and create their videos in the background. Whenever someone uses your track, you earn money. What makes a playlist or a radio or a TikTok hit is a musical moment, where users get creative with lip-synching or crazy dance video making. TikTok videos are shared on other platforms, so think about the amount of exposure your melody can get. It has the possibility of going viral overnight if you are lucky!
