I am wring this blog from a technology and ROI point of view as it relates to the music DYI business. I hope it helps others.
I use to post my music to Bandcamp but could not understand all the value. Its free and its easy. It is however a pay for download only system. So with thousands of plays from my music I there was no revenue / ROI.
I have seen little change to the site of technology in the years this streaming media has been available. I keep one song out on thier now on the server as follows:
As of this post I have made the song a “Free” for download status and an option to pay what you think the song is worth. To my knowledge this feature is not available on other streaming music sites. So we will now see if anyone downloads the song and or pays even a penny for its value. Try it out and let me know what you think. Should I load more songs to Bandcamp? Is there a ROI ? Music is a business it can’t be all free. Right ?
