How to prepare your next single or album for a successful release (The DIY Musician Live)

Don’t rush. Do your music distribution and promotion right!

Whether you’re planning to release a single, an EP, or a full-length album, you’ve only got one chance to introduce that new music to the world. In the mad-dash to share your new tracks, it’s easy to overlook or fumble crucial elements of a successful release.

It’s understandable that you’re excited and want to get your new songs out there as soon as possible, but after working so hard to create your music, why rush through the distribution, monetization, and promotion processes?

In the video above, I speak with CD Baby’s Anna and Griffin about how to prepare your next release for success, how to avoid common mistakes, and what information and promotional assets you need to assemble ahead of time — because you don’t just want to make your new music available, you want to make an impact.
