It’s actually going really well for me. Over the last year or so I’ve released 2 albums packed with corporate numbers, and people seem to be responding to it very positively. In fact my earnings from iTunes, Spotify and other streaming retailers has now pretty much become one of my main forms of income, dwarfing those earned via RF sites.
On the downside, I have a suspicion this may be cannibalising my RF license sales, with people searching for the tracks on iTunes, etc. or being exposed to the music in the first place via streaming ‘radio’ plays, purchasing it, then just using that music on their videos instead of seeking Licenses.
In just one year I’ve had close to 100000 sales of my ‘That Positive Feeling’ track (and still going strong) and my first album was even trending on Amazon’s Album sales for a while. During that time, I witnessed one of the biggest drops of (including that same track) within the licensing domain, including here on AJ.
I guess there’s a natural dichotomy with these things, and in hindsight I should have expected this kind of knock-on effect. My view is as long as I’m earning an income from my music - however that’s achieved - I’m happy! As Prestashop says however, it’s a lot to do with how it’s branded and marketed too, and having a good promotional tool such as YouTube always helps.
