Well I finally bit the bullet and signed up for distrokid's two artist plan... I was laying in bed two days ago and it hit me. "If I dont try to market my music, It's a certainty I will never make money at it."

After signing up and reading through the material I opted for their 2 artist tier for around $40. 40 is piddly in the grand scheme of things seems fair to me.

Anyways long story short I've upped 25 tracks I've made over the last year. Alot of them are not very good but they allow me to upload unlimited tracks and I have two profiles. All the tracks are synthesized so they are all legit. (However I didnt bother to master my renders lol i will take a hit for that i am sure)

Any tips for using distrokid? do's / don't's? Ways to make it pay? Got horror stories or good feed back? I want to know anything you can tell me about the service and if theres any more efficient ways of making it work for me.

Wow. They put me on ERRYTHANG. I am on spotify, youtube, amazon, itunes (ithink), iheartradio, tidal, a bunch of others.

It's a trip seeing your shiznit on amazon of the strength of your own efforts. I am not so delusional to imagine it will get rich but I am pretty effin stoked about reaching a wider audience than the underground and not having some parasite trying to chissel me and own me and my work.

Snazzy! ... rist+pt.+1
