So I got out the last of the royalty checks today which is always good. Of course right afterwords I got my bank statement that showed me that CD Baby had sent me two payments for a total of $150 that they didn’t email me about so the royalty checks would have been a little higher if I’d known that before hand.
Filed my tax paperwork for the end of the quarter with the state.
Got a check from some of the corporate link stuff that is currently on QRD.
Did some work towards getting the next QRD ready. Sadly less external pre-paid ads this time out instead of more, but that’s fine. I know it takes a while to get things to happen & I have plans to help change that around in the not too distant future. Basically I’m going to try to get some promotions companies & people who do advertisement bundles to sell the ads for me. They would get half the money, so the debate is, do I double the price & give them half the money? Have the standard rate doubled what I offer & when I solicit sales people feel like they’re getting a deal? Seems like it is what I should do.
Still working on things for the next MySpace promo wave. With the five releases at once I want to get them all done before I start anything so I don’t multi-mail people.
The Irata disc I need to scan the artwork of to get that release ready seems to have been lost in the mail between Raleigh & Greensboro, which is retarded.
I need to try to re-work my Google ad campaigns so that it includes about the past 20 releases. I’ll keep it at spending $30 a month, just spread out even thinner. I still haven’t really ever figured out how to track sales versus traffic (which I know is kind of important) to see if the ads are worth it at all. But it seems like they could do something for people seeing the name around.
A lot more end of quarter & end of month work to do. I might go to bed early for a long day tomorrow.
