Selling Your Music Videos Online
This article will show you how to make money from your music video by selling it as a digital download. The process of selling digital downloads is this: A music fan logs on to a music website or service, pays a fee to download your video, then you get paid for it (rinse and repeat). From your existing digital distribution options to new digital distribution options, I hope to give you a good understanding of how you can get paid every time a music fan downloads your video.
Apple’s iTunes is the obvious outlet for music fans to log on to and download their favorite music videos, but how do YOU as a musician get your video on there? Selling your music video as a digital download appears to be quite a difficult task because not many outlets currently offer this service. I tried to get my very own music video on iTunes back in 2006, and it was virtually impossible because I was an independent artist and not signed to a major record label.

So, what are your alternatives to iTunes? It works with digital distribution companies by charging you a fee to submit your album (on cd), and then they digitize it and distribute it in mp3 format to the most popular web-based music outlets. Companies like CD Baby are excellent and will distribute your music to iTunes, Amazon, Napster, and many more outlets, but as far as your music video is concerned, it’s stranded! If you do a search engine for “digital distribution,” you will get a fair idea of how and what type of files you can sell digitally i.e., mp3 audio and mp4 video.
