I know music promotion questions are often bypassed on here, most likely due to low profits compared to other niches, but let me explain my situation. I started a record label and in my country (Canada) we have grant/loan programs that you need to have 2000 album sales or 5/6000 singles to be eligible. (This can open up $10,000's) We are releasing his album late July and I'd like to hit these goals within 6 months from release (Ideally 3). I was thinking i could buy them all myself via Itunes, and get 70% of my money back. ($1800 investment if I buy all singles). I could also offer a crazy affiliate program where I give away 100% of the income from digital sales (think people would be interested?) Any other suggestions? The Facts: - I currently own theartist.com , thealbum.com , theartist.info (And a dozen other music related .info's) - I own scrapebox, seonukeX, sick submitter, tweet attacks and tweet attacks creator. - I have a mailing list of over 100,000 industry contacts, and a few 100,000 supposed "music consumers". Problem being they are not cleaned and not optin (I purchased list, blasted and lost a server already, but had decent response to the free download I sent). - I have a 2GB, 600GB BW, Unix US Based VPS to work with. (Not spam friendly) - I also own a music sharing website, but the traffic is low. (20/day) - We have a 1000 physical copies of the album - Album features a dozen California rap artists with strong local followings (butch cassidy, kokane, wc, etc for those that know the scene) I Feel like I have the ingredients, but no recipe. Any pointers? Should I just blast everything at a strong landing page that points to online retailers? Or make my own shopping cart? I appreciate the input! Clearly everything I've acquired is due to the great advice given throughout bhw.
