Press Release

Now You Can Sell Your Music On iTunes

March 29 2004

(HOLLYWOOD)-Independent artists and labels will be glad to learn that they don't have to be distributed by a major label to get a distribution contract with the iTunes Music Store, now revolutionizing music sales with millions of dollars in downloads.

But finding out how to do it was often a painful and time-consuming process-until now.

Higgs Communications announces A Guide To Selling Your Music In The iTunes Music Store by Simon Higgs. This is the definitive guide to placing independently released music in the iTunes Music Store-and getting paid for every song downloaded.

Written exclusively for start-up and established independent record labels, A Guide To Selling Your Music In The iTunes Music Store is the much-needed how-to iTunes manual for producers, engineers, artists, managers, and attorneys handling band and label affairs.

One of the year's top music business stories is the iTunes Music Store phenomenon, which offers Windows and Macintosh users the industry's largest online music catalog of over 500,000 songs, industry-leading personal use rights and uniform 99 cents-per-song pricing. The iTunes Music Store offers music from all five major music companies and over 300 independent music labels.

A Guide To Selling Your Music In The iTunes Music Store shows the way there to independent labels and bands. It covers the entire application and contracting process, from approaching Apple to encoding and submitting music to the iTunes Music Store. It explains what the seller must know and shows where the pitfalls are in the process.

The guide focuses on the following areas:

  • The Application Process
  • Sending The Contract Back To Apple
  • Encoding Your Music Using iTunes Producer
  • Bonus Section Explaining ISRC Codes

A Guide To Selling Your Music In The iTunes Music Store is available (hard copy only) directly from Higgs Communications, LLC, for $20.00 plus shipping/handling, at http://www.higgs.com/publications/itunes-guide.html.
