How to Market Your Music CD

Dear Jen,
First I want to congratulate you for your interesting website, I enjoy reading it a lot and always find some good advice, especially for my students. Your videos are great too, I think that for beginners “a video tells more than 1000 words”…!
I have a question for you: do you know how to put a CD for sale on “Itunes”? I cannot find anywhere the right information. Can anyone sell his CD on Itunes or do they make a choice? What is your experience of CD Baby, or other ways of selling CD’s (not only in the U.S. of course) ? Thank you for your time, and please, keep the good work…! C. (flutist in Europe)

Dear C.,
Thanks for the compliments on my website. Sorry, but I don't know anything about marketing CDs, but I do know how to use google, and scan for useful articles. Here's what I came up with, below. If anyone else has links and articles to suggest, please leave a comment. Best, Jen :>)

"Thanks for the links. You'll find this one very interesting to read about itunes and maybe how it's not that great a deal!"
