I worked on a list that I thought would be helpful for independent artists. There's a lot of focus on only a few outlets but there are many to choose from. This list was originally published on Praverb.net, many thanks to Praverb for the assistance and support.
Your music is your baby. You’ve worked hard, poured your heart and energy into it and now you’re ready to make it accessible to the world.
Your current fans as well as the pretty decent network of potential new fans you’ve built up are eager to hear the gem you’re ready to drop.
So now it’s time to switch gears for a moment. Have you considered the most cost-effective way to ensure your music reaches your desired audience the way that you want it to?
Many artists tend to focus on a few of the well known distributors (which is not a bad thing) but as with anything it is important to do your research, crunch the numbers and find out what will work best for you.
There are a variety of distributors you can select from to suit your specific needs. Take some time to weigh your options to maximize your results.
