Independent recording artists need to be heard. Making your singles or albums accessible on streaming platforms such as apple music and Spotify, amazon music, and google play is the best way to do so. Statista states that there will be 400 million music streaming subscribers worldwide in the first three quarters of 2023. This figure is likely to grow. Streaming has become the new standard for music distribution. Here are the steps to sell your music online via streaming.
Ensuite Your Music to Be Awesome
First, sell music on Apple Music and know that streaming music can be a competition with the best. If your tracks sound bad, they won’t be heard and won’t get the attention they deserve. Practice, make several recordings, and only work with the music you’re most proud of.
Choose Music Distribution
Unless you are lucky enough to be signed to a record label, you must partner with a digital music distribution provider to make your songs available to the largest online music stores and streaming sites. They usually charge a fee but may also take a portion of any royalties you receive from music sales, streaming revenue, and downloads.
MusicDigi is a global digital music distributor that serves artists and labels from all over the globe. MusicDigi allows musicians to create unlimited music through a vast network of digital music stores or streaming platforms such as Spotify and Amazon Music.
Prepare Your Audio File
You have amazing music that you want to share. Please make sure it is properly mixed, mastered, and uploaded. Audio engineers can send you high-quality wav audio files optimized for streaming. Get your music on TikTok for blazing success! This revolutionary app and social media platform allow users to upload their own audio files, from one-off videos of their pet performing a trick to original songs.
Launch on Streaming
You will have the option of either an app or an online form to submit information about your music release. Once you have filled in all information and uploaded the song(s), you can complete your release. Your music will be posted to all the top streaming sites, including:
- ITunes and apple music
- Amazon Music
- Google Play
- YouTube Music
Your music can appear on certain platforms in a few days. Other platforms could take up to several weeks. Selling your music is a great way to get your music out there and reach a wider audience. With access to an expansive catalog of over 40 million tracks, customers can easily find the song they want in the selection. Additionally, being in a store used by millions of people gives aspiring musicians an excellent opportunity to gain more recognition. Since Amazon Music also allows you to sell your music on Amazon Music, as well as individual tracks, artists can get additional income from selling their entire discography.
Build Your Fan base
Congrats! Your music is now streaming all over the internet! Unfortunately, nobody knows it yet. There will be some manual work involved in promoting your music. You can create music videos to upload to YouTube, or TikTok allows you to post your mp3s. It is worth considering joining other social media groups, communities, and online forums where new songs are shared and being an active participant. Your fans will be thrilled to find your songs streaming on their favorite streaming site once you’ve gained some followers. Artists of all sizes have used the platform to reach new audiences and grow their fan bases. If you’re a musician or band looking to get your music on Spotify, we help you navigate the process.
