Audiolife: Sell Music & Merch With No Upfront Costs

Madalyn says... this new site is worth checking out. I'm digging it!



Audiolife Announces Public Beta Launch: Indie Artists and Music Industry Pros Hail New On-Demand Technology as the Future of Promoting and Selling Music and Merchandise Online

The Audiolife platform allows artists to:

* Create their own virtual store with an unlimited number of downloads,
ringtones, CDs and merchandise items.

* Sell directly to fans on any website, blog or social network on the
web.

* Have one central place to design custom products and manage all e-
commerce.

* Easily buy high quality, affordable CDs and merchandise with no
minimums for live shows and events.

* Focus on making music while Audiolife handles all on-demand
manufacturing, distribution, customer service and accounting.

Check out their video demo:



“Audiolife was built around the specific needs of artists,” remarked Brandon Hance, Founder and CEO of Audiolife. “We have spent over three years identifying the challenges artists have when trying to build their careers, and we have created a solution that integrates all of their needs into a single website that completely eliminates the need for start-up capital. Our goal is to create a middle class in the music industry by empowering artists and record labels with the necessary tools to make money in the new music business.”

I'm checking it out...

Recently found out about this myself! Pretty excited about it. I love that there are no up front costs or inventory to keep. Curious to see how it'll do.

You can create your online store, design your own merch, sell your CDs, music, rigntones online with no up-front costs or exclusivity contract- that means you can be a member of any music organization or even label- it's independent. Audiolife's main purpose is to help artists promote themselves and make money, compared to other companies and labels.

Hope it helps!,

I think one-stop for all your needs plus no upfront costs AND you set your own price. It's a winner in my book!

Great product!! No up-front costs should do it for most indie musicians. Love the on-demand model, which is perfect for us. Can't wait to see what's in store in the near future!

You know I'm blogging this one! Thanks as always.
