Let me know what you think about the site, I've been using it for years now!

Are you making $$ off your music online?

July 21st, 2011 + 3:07 PM  ·  UnitedEntity

Hey guys,

I know this is not a song, I am kind of a new user here so excuse me if this is the wrong board for this kind of discussion.

As an unsigned musician I used to find myself scratching my head all the time and wondering how to make money off of my music and monetize my work on the internet. A little over a month ago I found out about SocialMusic.com and was wondering if anybody else was using this platform? I am currently making a few hundred bucks every few weeks off of my fans that enjoy my music and wish to support what I am doing.

I have found a few resources but I was wondering what you all do to monetize your music content online successfully? It would be great to hear some success stories and maybe get a jump start with some tips. I can share strategy and information on how I am banking with Social Music if you guys wish.
 
Here are the different platforms that I am aware of:

iTunes:
Cons: Requires users to pay for music which they may not be willing to do.  Certainly not start up artists.

CDbaby.com
Cons: The amount of musicians active on this website is extremely large, so that CD you are selling for $6 may take a while to get noticed.

Songstall.com
Cons: Not the easiest platform to use, company takes a % off of the total song/album sale.

Best way to monetize your music online?

July 20th, 2011 + 3:07 PM  ·  UnitedEntity

Hey guys,

As an unsigned musician I find myself scratching my head all the time and wondering how to make money off of my music and monetize my work online. I have found a few resources but I was wondering what you all do to monetize your music content online? It would be great to hear some success stories and maybe get a jump start with some tips.

Here are the different platforms that I am aware of:

iTunes:
Pros: Has a lot of the bigger brands and is a well known name.
Cons: Requires users to pay for music which they may not be willing to do.  Certainly not start up artists.

Pages.Socialmusic.com:
Pros: Provides artists with a way to monetize their music without asking users or fans to spend any money or do anything uncomfortable. Fans view a short series of ads then proceed to music. Artists are paid each time one of their fans does so.
Cons: Does not have quite as big a name as the others yet.

CDbaby.com
Pros:  A simple way for unsigned artists and small labels to begin getting serious profiting off of their work.
Cons: The amount of musicians active on this website is extremely large, so that CD you are selling for $6 may take a while to get noticed.

Songstall.com
Pros: An easy to use on line music shop which allows independent artists to sell their music to their fans and friends.
Cons: Not the easiest platform to use, company takes a % off of the total song/album sale.

Wall stands are the greatest for Guitars/Bass.  You can keep your floor space open and your guitars are right there in front of your face all the time   

Another tip:  PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!!   Watching TV?  Practice some scales and keep your hands busy!

Good bass for a beginner?

July 18th, 2011 + 7:07 PM  ·  UnitedEntity

Hey guys,


I am currently looking to get a new bass but I am unsure of what route to go.  I am really into the Schecter basses that I have seen, but I was wondering if you guys have any recommendations for something else?

Budget is around $200-$300.


Thanks in advance for any feedback!
