Advantages to selling your music on Indieheaven are:
1- You get all 100% of your sales income!
For our Sold-Out Arenas and Touring Pro tier members…
Sell a song for 99 cents, and get all 99 cents! Sell a digital album for $9.99 and get all $9.99. We eat the transaction fee! (that’s the fee the credit card companies charge for an online transaction.. its about 30 cents per item, plus 3%!)
Here’s how it works!
As a Touring Pro member, We first apply sales income to your membership support, which as a Touring Pro tier member, is $19.95 per 30 day period from the day you signed up. So, if you have more than $19.95 in sales during your first 30 day period, your card is not charged for membership! If you sell more than $19.95, but less than $44.95 in a 30 day billing cycle, we roll over the balance to the next month, which will also decrease the out of pocket membership support. If you have a good sales period, and you have more than $25 in sales in your account (over $44.95 in sales), we send you money via PayPal! Make sure we have your PayPal account email so we can send your funds to you!
If you are a Weekend Warrior tier member, there is no monthly support fee, and we split sales income 50/50 with you. We’ll send your sales income to you when it hits $25
If you are a Sold-Out Arenas tier member, you prepaid your membership for a year you get all 100% and we send your funds to you when you hit $25! You also get lots of other perks!!!

2- You can run special deals at any time!
Just like Walmart, you can lower your price for your music at any time, let your friends, fans and followers know about your special offer, which will spur more sales! It doesn’t have to be much.. maybe from 99 cents to 75 cents.. then.. after the sale ends, you can raise the price back up.. You cannot do this on i-tunes or anywhere else! We can even do a special code for you to give a % discount.. let your people know to enter the code at checkout, and they get the deal!
3- You know who your customer is!
The bummer about i-tunes and the other digital stores is they do not tell you who purchased your music. A buying customer is a hot lead, that can lead to other things like a concert, or a funder for your music mission or who knows what. It all starts with the purchase! We provide you your customer name, city/state/zip, and email address! This way, you can reach out to them to say thanks, and do some suggestive selling.. ask them if they would like to sponsor a concert with you, or ask them for leads in their area for concerts. Don’t stop at the sale! Turn a single sale into much more by cultivating a relationship with your customer! A simple email thank you to your customer may turn into a life long fan, concert sponsor, donor, or more! Capitalize on these relationships!
4- Music Player/Sales Widget
Also, our new Music Sales widget is NOW AVAILABLE! You can copy and paste the widget code found in your artist admin, in the MY PROFILE section, click on MY WIDGETS. Copy and paste the code to your personal website, and other profiles you may have on the www. The more places you get this widget out on, the more possibility of selling your music! People will be able to listen and BUY your songs right from the widget! And.. your friends and fans can also copy the widget code right from the widget and paste it on their social network profiles to help you spread your excellent music! See how our Widget looks on a member personal site: HERE
5- Top Songs Chart
We Also have on Indieheaven our TOP SONGS CHART, where people can listen to and BUY songs from many members. It’s a fantastic way to get your music in front of people who may have never heard of you before! Chart position is determined by the number of song plays on your Indieheaven profile. The more listens, the better chance of getting on these popular charts!
So, you can see why selling music on Indieheaven makes good sense. Right?
The Key to selling your music:
The biggest mistake indie artists make is producing their music, but not promoting it. Most think God will do that for them, but folks.. God is not in the music business. And if you are selling or receiving money for services, you are a business. Treat it like a business and God will be there to help you. To sit and wait for something to happens, means you are a waiter. Miracles happen by works and faith.. not just faith!
It’s your job as the CEO of your record label to make sure your friends, fans and followers know your music is available! What we have found is that members who sell the most music on Indieheaven tell their friends, fans, and followers to come to Indieheaven to buy their music. So, let them know you are here and watch sales start happening! We’ll also do our part to drive people into Indieheaven to learn about our members. Together, we can do it, with God’s help!
I can help promote your music and increase your exposure!
