Digital Music Distribution Deal: How To Sell Your Music on iTunes

Music Distribution Companies

Selling your music on the iTunes store is a lot easier than you might think. Of course, you should know that, iTunes doesn’t do direct deals with independent artists. They only like to do deals with with the big boys. The big boys are those music distribution companies that…

  • have a direct contract with Apple/iTunes
  • have a catalog with approximately 2,000+ artists and/or albums that they intend to distribute to the iTunes store
  • intend to deliver 400+ releases to the iTunes store per month

Apple, and much of the music distribution business, refer(s) to these music distribution companies as aggregators.

The part that bothers me is that, when an independent musician is looking into selling songs or albums on the iTunes store, other bloggers are giving them the details on how to  ‘apply’ to the iTunes store. Well, let me tell you, there is a 99.9% chance you will be rejected immediately because Apple just doesn’t do deals with indies like that.

So, as you would expect, your only other option is to deliver content to iTunes through an aggregator. Right off the bat, I will tell you that the best music distribution companies are:

ADED.US Music Distribution was voted best music distribution company by Indie Music Guide and is based out of Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.A.. ONErpm is based out of Brazil. RecordUnion is based out of the U.K..
