#3. You end up losing your fans in the long run

In the long run, you will lose all your fans by referring all of them to buy from iTunes. If you advertise your iTunes download, you are literally losing all of your fans, and trading them for a few dollars of music sales. It’s not worth it, especially if you are selling a lot of music. You are actually losing money. If you were able to get your fan’s information, it could potentially make you rich as an artist.
