Music Downloads

IN A BAND?
NO RECORD LABEL?
WANT TO SELL YOUR MUSIC?
READ THIS...


Here at Thunder Towers, we're constantly being approached by up and coming bands, all looking for ways to get their name around and get some success. Sadly, we run a small label with only a handful of dedicated people, so we have neither the time nor resources to sign you.

However, we've recently begun relationships with a Digital Distribution company that offers a way for bands to sell their music via download. It occurred to us that for some bands, this could be a vital way to get started on the road to success. We can't sign you, but we can help you get going...

The following text is intended to provide sufficient information to get you started, please have a read. If you're interested, delve deeper....

It's a bit long, so concentrate, and please be patient.... We're trying to help you here...

SOME USEFUL INFO..

1. Whilst it's generally agreed that most people who buy music would prefer a physical CD, complete with booklet and artwork etc, music download sales are increasing at a staggering rate, proving that it's fast becoming a more and more popular way to buy music.

2. The great thing about selling your music online is that it can cost very little (or nothing in some cases) to offer it for sale, and you have the added bonus of it being advertised and heard in places in addition to your band's website.

3. It's well known that record companies large and small use digital distribution sites regularly to find new acts, so you never know who may be listening to your song samples...

INTERESTED? READ ON...

As mentioned above, we've begun relationships with a digital company that can sell your music for you, they do it for us. Their deals are non-exclusive, which means you are not tied to them, leaving you free to do similar deals with other companies, or sign to a record label as and when that happens. This is good.

The Arkade

These guys charge a subscription fee, but pay you 100% of the income generated. Once you join you get your own shop, you upload your music, along with news and biography, links to your website etc etc. You effectively get your own shop using their resource, in return they get a subscription and enable the sales, and you get 100% of the income from each sale. They have a regular record label too, and we know they check out all bands signing up to Arkade, so you never know...

For full info go to www.arkade.com.

We're happy to recommend them, and as a favour to us, they're offering you a discount on the usual subscription. When you join up you'll eventually come to the payment page, at that point simply enter the discount code thu327. Not bad is it?

THE END
So there you have it. We can't do it for you, but we thought sharing this might be a good way to help you to help yourself (and make some money).

The Arkade sells Thunder music, so if it's good enough for us...

Check them out, even if you decide you don't want to do it, you may find some music you like..
