TuneCore

TUNECORE Visit Site

Cost:

$9.99 per song

$29.99 per album ($49.99 when renewed)

TopConsumerReviews.com Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award TuneCore is a Better Business Bureau A-rated distributor of music that started in 2005. When you work with TuneCore, you know that any potential sales or rights to the music are all yours. You'll also get immediate access to distribute your music at a low price as well as have access to all sales proceeds.

To get started at TuneCore, you simply open an account for free. You then have access to upload your music and any respective art work. If artwork is not available, TuneCore offers templates you can choose from to create a cover.

The fee structure is very straightforward at TuneCore. The prices are a one-time fee of $9.99 per song, or $29.99 per album (for the first year; $49.99 per album for renewal). No additional fees or charges are assessed for music distribution and TuneCore withholds no sale proceeds. If anyone purchases your music, you'll get access to that money via the TuneCore website.

TuneCore works to distribute your music to all of the major online music companies, such as iTunes, AmazonMP3, Rhapsody, and many more.

We found numerous counts of individual and well-known artists that had great experiences at TuneCore. With excellent pricing, a wide-ranging distribution network, and a strong history of making the customer happy, TuneCore should be your first choice for music distribution. They earn our highest rating.

Song Cast

SONG CAST Visit Site

Cost:

$5.99 monthly fee plus $9.99 per single or $19.99 per album

SongCast works to distribute independent artists music work through iTunes, Rhapsody, AmazonMP3, eMusic , Google Play, and more. SongCast Music started in 2006 and currently holds a Better Business Rating of A.

SongCast allows you to keep 100% of your earnings from music downloads sales. SongCast allows you to pay for your music distribution month-to-month. The monthly membership fee is $5.99 and you'll also pay a fee of $19.99 per album or $9.99 for each single. The album price is affordably priced but the monthly fees on a single song makes SongCast more expensive than other companies offering the same service. However, like other companies, you never have to pay a commission on any future sales and maintain all rights to the music.

To get started you open an account at SongCast, upload your music and album file cover. Any royalties from song sales are paid to your SongCast account on the 20th of each month which may transferred to you via Paypal. Priced a little higher, SongCast's monthly fees make distributing singles more expensive than other companies. Starting an account at SongCast is simple but we wished they provided assistance with album covers for those really new to the industry.

Overall, SongCast is a good value for album distribution and is easy to work with, but they're less of a good deal for those working on singles.

Songrila

SONGRILA Visit Site

Cost:

20% of all sales

Songrila was founded by Bernd Awaloff of Germany and is relatively new to the market place. Songrila is a music download site where small labels and independent artists post their music for sale. This is a smaller shop that currently assists approximately 4,500 artists and unlike other music distribution sites, Songrila does not charge fees but retains a portion of each sale.

Registration is free at Songrila and you may sell directly via an artist website, MySpace and Facebook. You are allowed to choose the price of your songs. Should you sell a song through one of these outlets you will receive 80% of the proceeds and Songrila keeps 20%. You will continue to maintain all rights to the music. Payment occurs one time per month via Paypal, bank transfer, and Click& Buy. To start, you open a free account at Songrila, upload your music and go.

One of the concerns we had with the Songrila website is that it's a German based company and this may turn off potential North American customers with misspellings and German language on some web pages. We also felt that for successful artists, Songrila would potentially charge much more in costs than those companies higher ranked.

However, not all online music publishing companies are the same. Before publishing your music with a service, you should consider a number of factors. Some of these include:

  • Services included. Does the music publishing company offer cover templates and assistance to help your presence look professional?
  • Cost. What is the cost to distribute a single song and the cost of an album? Is there a monthly fee for the music publishing service?
  • Distribution networks. What networks does the music publishing company work with
