If you have become quite passionate in music making, but you haven't had any exposure, then there are a couple alternative things you can do to make it in this industry.

The music industry is considered to be one of the toughest businesses to break into, not only because there is so much competition, but because it is literally impossible to please everyone.

Trying to be someone in the music world is going to be a challenge, but luckily, the old fashion ways of selling music aren't the only ways anymore.

One of the most popular methods of selling music at the moment is on the Internet.

The reason to this is that the majority of people nowadays spend most of their time online, so by Selling Music Online , you will be gaining exposure a lot faster than trying to get a record deal.

However, don't automatically think that selling music online is going to be easy, because it won't be, you'll need a lot of dedication, and you must always let your unique flavor shine through your music.

Standing out is your only bet to making it in the industry online, or else you won't get any recognition for your talent.

 

5 Ways To Sell Music Online

 

- iTunes

iTunes sells way more music compared to all the other retailers combined.

Having your music established on iTunes will not only increase your credibility, but it will also be your first step to stardom.

All you have to do is create an account, make your music (professionally), download your song to iTunes and set your price.

 If you become popular on iTunes and just get one song that generates a bunch of sales, you should expect to be getting a lot of fans just from that one song.

 

 

- Songcast

Songscast is by far the best music selling service online today.

Visit the official Songcast website and start making money today!

The company is an independent resource made directly to the unsigned artists, the run by musicians, and for artists who just want to be heard.

The aim of the company is to make an online marketplace where unsigned artists are given their own stall where their music can be heard by everyone.

 

 

 

- Getonic

Getonic is another great source to sell music online.

Although it isn't exactly as popular as iTunes, there are a lot of people that buy songs there.

The majority of artists on this site are start-up musicians where everyone is just supporting one another to make it in the industry.

 It is a great place to start if you really just want to get your music out there.

 

- Tunecore

Unlike the other sites above, Tunecore sells your music on all the possible places it could be sold.

Basically, when you sign up on Tunecore, they will automatically put your songs on iTunes, and the other popular music selling sites.

Every time a person buys your song, they will alert you about the sale.

 

- CD Baby

CD Baby like Tunecore gets your music published on Amazon, iTunes, and other popular music selling sites.

Although they do get a cut for every sale, they make sure to give you your royalty fees for each sale while at the same time provide weekly reports to you so that you could see where your music's going.

 

Tips On Increasing Online Presence

When selling online, try not to set the price too high.

You want to appeal to people as someone who just wants your music to be heard as opposed to one of those artists who just wants to make money out of people.

To become more known online, consider making a YouTube channel.

You will be surprised on how many people started their careers from YouTube and how popular they all have become since.

A couple stars that did start on YouTube are popular musicians like Justin Bieber, Jessica Sanchez, Greyson Chance, Esmee Denters, and Cody Simpson.

Remember, the more you work to promote your music online, the more sales you will get.

Just stay humble and relatable, and you will notice how people will see you as the next big thing online.
