If you want to release your music, then the Internet is the place to search for digital distributors. There are many including CD Baby and Tunecore, which are the most popular. If you want to get your music on iTunes worldwide and Amazon, Spotify, Emusic and many more then these buy soundcloud likes companies help you do this at a small price. They only charge you a fee to upload a single or album, and you keep all the sales revenue.
Online radio stations are a great way to get your music heard, and I have found that Last FM and Jango have some great ways of promoting your music. I have used Jango recently and found it quite effective but you do need to pay for plays. I would advise for you to go for 1000 fairly cheap credits. Their prices are on the website. Your music on Jango will rotate with artists that are similar to yours. You can set this up on the site when you register and upload your music. Listeners can also become a fan of your music, and Jango will send you an email stating their name and location. Some fans can leave you an email address which is very handy for building your fan base. You can also send three bulk messages to your fans every week from the Jango dashboard, which is also a great way of keeping in touch with them. You could offer them free downloads from time to time to keep them hooked. Once you have them worshiping the ground you walk on, then they will tell all their friends about your music.
Soundcloud is also another great website to upload your music for the world to hear. Most big artists are on there. There is a free account, but it has a limited upload time, and you can't post your music into the many groups that are listed on the site. I advise that you buy one of the premium accounts on offer as you have more upload time and you can post your music to groups which will bring you more listeners. Soundcloud also includes many apps which can be run alongside the site. You can also download a Soundcloud app for the iPad, which is great.
There is one more site that I recommend for artists that want to sell music. Vibedeck is an unbelievable site for artists as it is free. You can upload and sell your music, and they won't charge you a penny. They only charge for the additional services which include 60-second previews, branded player, etc. you can also embed the code into your website where it enables your fans to purchase your music, donate or download for free, whichever you choose. You must have a PayPal account with Vibedeck as you won't get paid otherwise.
There are plenty more ways to promote and market your music online, and there are too many to list here. The sites and methods listed in my article are just a few that I have tried and found effective, so get producing and promoting your way to a profitable and successful career in music.
