Sell Your Music Directly From Your Website
Selling music directly is the logical but usually the difficult solution for most people but why? There are a few factors but the big reason for people not selling directly is that they do not have a system to sell from. You could have a system built for you but that would cost thousands. A recent talk with Muze Music Magazine revealed
"Musicians and producers really need to do work in terms of finding a foundation to sell and showcase their media. We find so many independent and start up musicians selling their soul to distribution companies. Honestly if you can have your own system on your own website then you're on a great foundation because you have the say-so. The problem is finding a program that allows you full freedom and control which is why we dig platforms like Soundgine, it's like having your own personal iTunes without paying a hefty percentage"
This is exactly in-line with our views.
Protect the Music You Sell Online
Before selling your music online you must consider the cruital issue of illegal downloads on the net. The truth is that it's happening with many major websites and it blows our mind, we can't mention websites that are not secure but you can definitely find them on the first page on Google for "Sell Music" or "Sell Beats". How are they downloading your music? There are some well-known browser extensions that search for your media and allow for any user to download it like the example below:
Soundgine changes all this. We have a safe player that blocks the download of your music. Not having a secure player where users can essentially download your music for free can ruin your business. Having a secure player is critical in the business of selling music online.
Sell Music Online with Complete Control
One of the most powerful features of this beat selling machine is the ability to sell using different license methods.
Make the most of your money and apply the right license to each of your tracks. Of course you can write your own agreements where the user must check the "Agree to Terms" box before checkout.
Sell Music Online On Your Own
Selling music online on your own is hassle-free. One of the biggest reasons to sell on your own is to avoid digital music distribution services from taking a high percentage of your sales (9-15% in most cases, Ouch!) and just when you feel you can deal with a 9-15% cut there's the dreaded "Takedown Fee", absurd? Yes. More artists are now placing a store on their website to avoid the politics associated with involving a third party managing your music. With Soundgine, you have your own store which completely takes out the middle man. So who's selling online on their own? Music giants like Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails have been selling their own music online with a label or distribution companies with major success, this is the 2013 + business model.
Tips Before Selling Music Online
Before selling music online you want to make sure you protect yourself from potential lawsuits and you need to know certain steps to register your music, so here are some helpful tips before you sell online.
1. Did you hire extra producers, backup singers, or other musicians to compose your music? If so you will need them to fill out a "musicians release agreement" If you create all your music then this agreement is not needed.
2. Writers and publishers should know exactly where they stand and this includes how the money is split up. The "songwriter publisher agreement" should be filled out before selling music.
4. Alright, so you recorded your album, now what? Time to register the album using the "Form SR" form and submit it to the U.S Copyright Office
5. It is very important to register for an "International Standard Recording Code" otherwise known as (ISRC) for your songs. If you do not reside in the United States Click here to find your ISRC. The ISRC is your personal code for each song. It is important that each of your songs has this ISRC code. The ISRC is usually included in CD or other recorded media.
6. If you want to get paid for your music to be played on the radio, commercials, malls, clubs, you will need to join a Performing Rights Organization (PRO). If you are in the United States you can join ASCAP or BMI. You can also try SESAC but this is usually by invite only and reviewed by a publisher staff.
The PDF's attached are templates and we recommend you have an experienced music business attorney review and make any necessary adjustments. These are important tips to sell your music online.
Sell Music Online Safely.
The reality is that thousands of songs are being downloaded from players every day. It truly has become an epidemic and hurting the artist in a big way. The problem is that artists have no idea that their music is being downloaded illegally. How does this happen? People download browser extensions (add-ons) that sniff out where your music is located and prepares them for download with a click of a button. This takes the steam out of selling music online, I mean why pay for it if you can simply download the music, Soundgine puts an end to that.
Soundgine has built-in code that stops browser software from downloading music. Soundgine is one of the VERY few players that have security, but we feel that putting in the development to protect you is a major priority. Sell music online with the assurance that your material is safe.
