From July 30th to August 3rd, we won’t be taking any cut of MP3 sales on CDBaby.com—that’s zero, zip, zilch, nada, nothing.
Our customers have been loving the new CDBaby.com re-design and we thought this would be a cool way to celebrate; we take 0% of artists’ digital sales for 5 days and you keep 100% of your digital revenue!
Sell an album download for $9.99 on cdbaby.com, get paid $9.99! Sell a song for 99 cents, get paid 99 cents!
[Want to sell your music on CDBaby.com and earn 100% of your digital sales revenue? Get started now.]
CD Baby already offers the highest payout on MP3 sales of any digital music retailer (75%), and for 5 days it’s going to be higher still, so you’ll earn even more money when you direct fans to purchase downloads from CDBaby.com.
Fans will be excited to give you their support, knowing a purchase from CD Baby goes further than it would elsewhere, and you get to keep all the money!
[Important: Our 0% cut is only applied to MP3 sales on CDBaby.com— NOT on our partner sites: iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc.]
4 ways to make the most of CD Baby’s 5-day celebration
1. Get linked up—
2. Complete all your album and artist info—
A bunch of blank white space can look pretty unprofessional. Make sure you’re using all the real estate on your CD Baby pages to entice fans to make that purchase. Talk about your songs, your albums, your inspiration, your influences, and your accolades.
3. Encourage fans to leave reviews—
The more people leave positive reviews on your CDBaby.com product pages, the more secure a potential buyer will feel about purchasing your music.
4. Let your fans know that you keep 100% of your sales—
Make sure you’ve got a message ready to send out on July 30th; post it on your blog, announce it on your social media profiles, and send to your email newsletter subscribers.
Maybe something like this:
It means a lot to me that you’ve been a supporter of my music career, and as an indie artist every dollar counts— so I wanted to let you know that between July 30th and August 3rd, if you purchase any of my MP3s from CDBaby.com, I’ll get to keep 100% of the sales!
If you’ve been thinking about it for a while, now is the best time to buy my music because your money will literally go further to help me make my next album, launch my next tour, etc.
Check out my music on the newly re-designed CDBaby.com at <your CD Baby product page URL here>.
Obviously, you should re-word that message so it sounds authentic to your voice and speaks directly to your fans. But make sure to show your appreciation and ask for their continued support!
