Last month we launched a brand new version of CDBaby.com to help make it easier for our customers to find great indie music.
When someone purchases your MP3s from CDBaby.com, you earn a higher cut on sales than from any other digital music retailer, so we want to make sure that you make the most of our new site!
Here are 3 ways to boost your music sales on CD Baby:
1) Get linked-
We’ve added a few new options to our Linkmaker. Make sure your fans know where they can purchase your music! Simply generate a link using our easy Linkmaker, copy the HTML code, and paste it into your blog, website, or social media profile.
It’s like having your own little online retail store, only we’ll handle the warehousing, shipping, customer service, and credit card processing. (Plus, you get to offer your physical CDs and downloads from the same page!) So direct your fans to buy from your CD Baby artist page today.
2) Complete all your artist info-
If you’re concise AND creative with your descriptions, you’ll hook ‘em. You’d be amazed at how many artists don’t fill out all the info, which can leave customers feeling a little uncertain about the purchase. Don’t make buyers think twice! Fill out your style description, your notes, your bio, and your song titles. As a bonus, all of the text you enter will be indexed by Google, making it easier for people to find your music online.
3) Ask fans to leave reviews-
Encourage your fans who’ve purchased music on CD Baby to write a short review. The more glowing reviews that appear on your single/album page, the more assured a potential buyer will feel about their purchase. Let other people sing your praises for you!
Our customers have been loving the new site, and it means a lot to them to know their support for indie artists literally goes further with CD Baby. Hopefully these 3 tips help you sell more music AND make more money.
