Re: Making money off your music?

Making money on anything pretty much comes down to marketing and advertising. It's about letting the people that would enjoy it and possibly buy it know that it exists, where to get it, and how much it is.

Just sticking things on the internet doesn't do much these days. Even places like BC and SC are just awash in seas of mediocrity, and the chances of someone just stumbling across your music enough times to make you anything or develop a real fan base is slim to none. You need to put it in whatever online or real world venue where the people that like the kind of music you make find out about new music.

As someone who's musical knowledge and interest ends in 1970 with Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother, I have no idea how you'd go about that. Probably with pinterblogs or instatweets or whatever the kids are doing these days.
