– Are record labels using YouTube to make money out of unsigned bands?
– CD Baby increase their prices by $10 – Are they still worth it?
– Review of Notion app for iPad
I recently blogged comparing digital distribution companies CD Baby and Zimbalam. CD Baby came out on top for me, mainly because they don’t charge annual fee and also because they can help distribute physical copies of your music.
I recently received an e-mail from CD Baby informing me that the price of submitting an album is increasing from $39 to $49. It’s a relatively small increase but I do have some reservations about it.
Over the last few days, I’ve been blogging advice to bands and musicians wanting to get their music up for sale online from why self-release is great to ensuring your product is good enough. Today I will be looking at who to submit your music to in order to get in up for sale on the major retailers such as iTunes and Amazon. There are plenty of companies out there that do this such as TuneCore and ReverbNation, but today I want to compare arguably the two biggest players in this field, CD Baby and Zimbalam.
