97,1% of all digital albums sell less then 1000 copies. Do you want your album to be on the other 2.9%? Here’s 5 tips:

 1 Quality

This obviously goes without saying: don’t just select a handful of tracks and name it an album: nurture every track, every second of the album as if it’s a baby. Put all your love and dedication into each track, and carefully select the tracklist of your most precious new album.

 2 Marketing

This is where a modern record label comes into picture: make a plan on How, When and Where your product will be marketed, and for what price. In our digital age, an album is not just a CD but each track can be used to maximize marketing efforts.

 3 Social Media

The backbone of your album communications: spread the word! Even better, have others spread it for you and make it as interactive as possible.

 4 Collabs

You know your music is of the highest quality, but do others? Improve your productional skills by teaming up with other artists, and inspire each other. Get inspired; collaborate and learn.

 5 Take your time

Key to success: don’t rush! Like mentioned before, treat your album as your baby and nurture it. You only get one chance to release each album; make sure you think it’s perfect before you let your fans enjoy it.
