    It got me thinking how do people make money off of music these days since nobody buys albums anymore. I was thinking that some were running sites filled with advertisements and a download button at the center of the page. Seems like an interesting idea. Anywho back to work.

    Ppl still buy music... not much but they still buy. Cds, Digital downloads, records etc..
    Most of electronic music bands/artists/Djs earn their money from gigs, not music sales.
    Ofcourse if you are mainstream artist, you will earn from sales as well.

    Never you mind.
    Fiverr and Band Camp can bring in a small income.
