Did a little more research on the MP3 store thing. I had no idea how good of a deal Amazon had. 256 encoding & releases on Silber seem to go between $7-$9 (I don’t set the prices myself, it’s done by third parties). So maybe I’d set it up at $7 & 256 bits. We’ll see.
So I’ve been working on getting some music stuff in film & it’s been pointed out to me that if I really want to make money as a label I need to stop taking a 10% cut & increase that to 25% & then just never pay the bands. Ha-ha-ha. Though I am thinking about re-structuring things a bit where if something goes through a music library I get 10% & if I personally negotiate it I get 25%. I feel like I am ripping myself off a bit on things because dealing direct can be ten hours of work & my 10% would only be $50.
Got a check from Carrot Top today for distribution. They are the absolute best & most honest & on time distributor in the United States. I have only even had to send them an invoice to get paid once in ten years. So if you run a label or record store I suggest working with them. If you’re a distributor, follow their business model & I can write about you like this one day….
So for those of you following my personal narrative (is there a difference between my personal narrative & artistic one anymore?), it looks like I’m going to be doing some part time cyber work doing medical billing. Trying to get a lot of various things going on to be able to continue staying at the house taking care of my grandmother after the unemployment runs out. We’ll see what happens.
