Step #2. Pick your singles, and give them away
After you decide on which songs will be your singles, give them away for free in exchange for their e-mail. This allows you to keep in touch with your new fans over and over again. You can sell them more merchandise and albums for years to come. Sign up for a contact form company, which will allow you to collect their e-mails before they are able to make a download. You can set the auto-responder to promote your new album after they get their free download.
