Who do you use & recommend for CD distribution?

Post by funsongs » Sun Jul 16, 2017 10:50 am

Think I needed to simplify my question...
for selling CDs & individual tracks; NOT the free sites like Spotify, etc.

No experience, personally, but I've heard of many people having success with CD Baby.

Thanks for the reply & effort, Dave.
CD Baby is who manufactured the 3 CD projects for me; but - I've got pause about using them for distribution too.
Perhaps that reservation is unwarranted. I honestly don't know - so that's why I'm asking.
Cheers.

I've used CD Baby to sell CDs and digitally distribute my individual tracks. However, my experience is limited to one EP produced some years ago.

You have bandzoogle listed in your signature. How much do they charge vs CdBaby?

If you don't have much promotion, you probably don't need much distribution.

Thanks Len - I just want to be able to post on my bandzoggle website links (or whatever) to places like iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby
where those who WANT a CD, or single track, can get them. Also - I plan to have a link to my favorite charity there for any visitors
who like to know about those kinds of things & opportunities.

I'm trying to find out what I don't know. :? :shock: 8-)
