I am about as psyched as I could possibly be as I have actually hit my first ever profit from my music. That’s right, I have been working as an indie artist for about a year and finally made some money. Don’t worry, I am not going to start driving a Bentley around, LOL, after all, my only profit thus far is 69 cents. Now that’s a rock star for you!
Seriously though, I want to offer my heartiest thanks to those who have bought my music thus far. Right now Napster appears to be the number one source because it has been streaming it. At least 5 of my songs were streamed in the past two months. I also have a download from Apple iTunes which is pretty epic as well. I don’t know if they read this site but if you do, understand that DJ6i thanks you!
Now all of these things you see here may be minor to the average person… I mean… what’s the big deal about 69 cents, it won’t even buy me a can of Diet Coke at most places. But that’s not the point! I created music to share my thoughts with anyone who would listen and without any marketing, I have made some money off of it. Besides, although I have been producing music for a while now, the music has only been made publicly purchasable in the past 3-5 months. If I have turned some profit in just a few short months, imagine how much I could make if those people who liked my music suggested it to someone else who then shared it with someone else, and a year or two passes, I might actually be able to buy a diet coke and a nice doughnut before long. 🙂
Keep listening and I promise to keep trying to churn out new stuff!
