    That’s exactly what I do… Although I really need to start paying more attention the licensing side of things, since that’s what I really got into this for, but got pulled away by wanting to make my own albums. Maybe after the next one. Haha.

    I have used Distrokid for some releases but lately I am using AMAdea. It’s free to distribute and gets your music everywhere you’d want it. They do a 90/10 non-exclusive split, so you basically earn 90% from every sale. Thanks for the heads up on Kunaki, much appreciated!

    Thanks Edouardo, definitely going to use Bandcamp and Kunaki is a great solution for physical CD sales! I was waiting for answers from DistroKid and Loudr. If anyone is wondering, with DistroKid you can choose to have specific tracks enter Content ID and Loudr do not enter any music into Content ID.
    MuscoSound, Thanks for the heads up on AMAdea, do they digitally fingerprint tracks? I would assume not. Cheers!

    I don’t think they do, but the tracks I have with them aren’t really geared as stock tracks so I treat them a little different. I’ve had pretty good communication with them, so they’d probably get back to you pretty quick if you emailed an asked, just to be sure.

    I started out selling my music online and then added licensing; in fact, I still make more consistent income this way. Have always used CD Baby and always opt out of Content ID etc etc.

    I’m just now releasing some of my production music commercially as I’m very curious about how it would sell.

    daveydad: you say you sell your production music better on iTunes etc. than on licensing sites. Do you do a lot of promotion for iTunes etc. or does it kind of take care of itself?

    The only “promotion” I do is mentioning new albums on Twitter, Facebook and SoundCloud. But I really don’t know 100% where my buyers come from. Most tracks/albums are bought on iTunes than Amazon or CD Baby.

    All right, thanks for the info! I guess only time will tell.
