We’ve featured Indiestore in the past – it’s essentially a site to sell your music without record company involvement. Well, it’s just made flogging your tunes even easier by introducing a MySpace plug-in to sell your tracks via your own networking page.
That’s good for two reasons. Firstly, you can make cash, up to 80 per cent of the price. And secondly, you can get famous, as all sales go towards a position in the official download charts. The plug-in, which you can add just by copying some HTML code into your page, adds an indiestore Flash Player to your site, which lists all the tracks you have on indiestore. Visitors can listen to the tracks using the Player – and if they’re interested in purchasing a track, click ‘buy’ and be taken to your checkout.
MySpace is planning to launch a tool for bands to sell tracks via their profile in the UK next year. But if you can’t wait, you can try for the big time now.
