Step #1. DO NOT depend on iTunes…

Big Money SkillyYOU MUST ALSO SELL ON YOUR OWN WEBSITE! When someone buys your music on iTunes, you do not collect their e-mail or information, so you cannot fully acquire a new fan. When you sell an album on your own website, you can gather all the info you want, and keep that for yourself so you can re-sell album bundles, merchandise and more. Use any company that allows you to sell digital items. This is key to making money!
