  • Independent labels/Artists in iTunes

    How do independent labels or artists get their songs sold in iTunes store?
    I've heard of songs being sold exclusively or semi exclusively in iTunes store, how do they get them there?

    I think the best way for an independent artist is to use www.tunecore.com
    My iTunes

      Yes as of today Tunecore is your best bet. Keep in mind you will need to drive people to your music for sale on iTunes.

      Want to see an album on iTunes put up by Tunecore? Here you go:
      A great album.

      See what I just did above? That kind of constant promotion (nagging!) is what you need to do. .0001% of people will click and 1/10000 of them will buy a song.

        We got our stuff in iTunes via CDBABY. When you are putting releases in their catalog, there is an option for using them for digital distribution.

          So does that mean you don't directly deal with itunes/istore, but rather go through an apple-approved "label" like CD Baby or tunecore?

                Ditto.

                Can someone compare tunecore to CD Baby?
