TuneCore has put together a Music Industry Survival Guide that provides information on how to market, promote and make money from your music while keeping your rights.
The music industry has finally changed allowing everyone in: from Grammy winners, to sound effect makers, to every band and music creator. No longer does a music creator need a record label to have worldwide distribution, now you can just sign yourself. With infinite inventory, with anyone’s music now on the shelves of stores like iTunes (the third most popular music store in the world), it all comes down to marketing and promotion. The Internet has created new avenues and media outlets for anyone to have global reach to others. Streaming radio stations, podcasts, MP3 Blogs and sites like YouTube offer everyone the chance to broadcast to a potential audience of hundreds of millions of people.
