Header: Artist Advice: Selling Your Music Online

Header CTA: N/A

Body:

Back in the day, getting your music in stores as an independent artist wasn’t easy. Even in the early days of iTunes and Amazon, you still needed a label for the most part. TuneCore helped revolutionize this process, and we continue to offer the most expansive reach for your music.

If you’re writing, performing and recording music regularly, chances are at this point that you have your preferred platforms for consuming other artists’ music, too. iTunes or Apple Music? Spotify or Deezer? Amazon or TIDAL? YouTube or Pandora? You get it – there’s a ton of options for listening these days.

As you begin to prepare your release, whether it’s a single, EP or full album, you might be asking yourself: how do I get my music on these platforms? And if you’ve gotten that far, you’re also probably wondering: how can I make money from my music online? Well, you’re not alone.

Free platforms like YouTube, Bandcamp, and Soundcloud simply require a sign-up, some time to build your personal account, and uploading your audio files. Obviously the advantages to this is price and access to fans. Bandcamp even lets you set a price and sell releases right from your page. But what about those digital music stores and streaming platforms that fans can subscribe to? Surely all one needs to do is send their music directly to them, right?

Header: Artist Advice: Ultimate Guide To Releasing an EP

Header CTA: N/A

Body:

One of the hardest thing for an artist to do is wait. Good musicians will spend a year or more writing and recording five or six meticulously arranged tracks. They know when to subtly sneak a guitar solo or drum fill on stage and how many bars to spend vamping on it. But when the time comes to share the music they’ve poured their life’s blood into, release day can’t come soon enough.

An EP - or Extended Play - is a popular format for releasing music. Many artists prefer to avoid longer albums and instead release EPs with three to six songs on them as a way to keep things moving. There’s plenty of benefits to this strategy, from lifecycle to promotional planning.

Sound like something you’re ready to try? Good news: we’ve put together a “Hitchhiker's Guide To Releasing an EP” on the TuneCore blog.

When Jesse of Split Screens was in the process of finishing his debut EP, he juggled music and work as a visual collage artist, leaving little time to focus on the “business side” of his music career. Thankfully, his mind was put to ease when he signed up TuneCore publishing administration service. TuneCore helped Jesse seamlessly register his music around the world to collect his royalties in one platform. As an extra bonus, Split Screens’ catalog was pitched for sync licensing opportunities to be used in TV, movies, video games & commercials.

As Jesse focused on making more music, his song “Close Your Eyes” was placed in the TV show Bones! The additional revenue earned from sync opportunities and songwriter royalties helped Jesse invest in his music career and make a living in San Francisco.

If you’re making a record you’ll be proud of, you’re going to put your time and spirit into that and you should make it as easy as possible to collect some money from your effort.” - Split Screens

Back in the day, getting your music in stores as an independent artist wasn’t easy. Even in the early days of iTunes and Amazon, you still needed a label for the most part. TuneCore helped revolutionize this process, and we continue to offer the most expansive reach for your music.

If you’re writing, performing and recording music regularly, chances are at this point that you have your preferred platforms for consuming other artists’ music, too. iTunes or Apple Music? Spotify or Deezer? Amazon or TIDAL? YouTube or Pandora? You get it – there’s a ton of options for listening these days.

As you begin to prepare your release, whether it’s a single, EP or full album, you might be asking yourself: how do I get my music on these platforms? And if you’ve gotten that far, you’re also probably wondering: how can I make money from my music online? Well, you’re not alone.

Free platforms like YouTube, Bandcamp, and Soundcloud simply require a sign-up, some time to build your personal account, and uploading your audio files. Obviously the advantages to this is price and access to fans. Bandcamp even lets you set a price and sell releases right from your page. But what about those digital music stores and streaming platforms that fans can subscribe to? Surely all one needs to do is send their music directly to them, right?
