TuneCore: If You Don’t Know, Now You Know

While traditional labels are looking as clueless as Nas on tax day, TuneCore has found a way to make recorded music more lucrative than Gucci Mane’s kitchen. Launched in 2005, TuneCore is a platform that aggregates every major online music store into a single manageable interface. TuneCore operates on a flat rate; a user simply uploads a song or album for a low price, and TuneCore puts those tracks for sale on iTunes, Amazon, and elsewhere. Meanwhile users can easily track their sales across online music retailers on a dashboard which adds up the total sales. TuneCore’s artist friendly business model has made the company not only popular, but highly profitable with reported revenues of over $30Million in 2009. If you’re interested in selling your music online and not already using TuneCore, get on it.
