Major chain music retail

I posted the last article so you could see how much retail cares about what they sell.

The American major retail music chain stores are almost impossible to get into if your not distributed by a distributor that is open with them. So let's say your label has a deal with a distributor that is open with the majors. Now it's up to four major buyers and six minors in the chain world to acknowledge you and your project. Say you are a new artist that has not sound scanned more than 50,000 units. Your label has to spend close to four dollars a unit to market your album so these four buyers might get interested in your project. Now if there interested they will offer you a program where you have to pay them to get your album in their chain. This does not guarantee sales or payment and is 100% returnable.

To all artist who ish on their label: Please learn what your label does and how hard it really is to get your product in chains, if your not Interscope or Def Jam.

Jab. I'm at Fatbeats.com quite often and now I'm at your blog almost as frequently.

Thanks for all of the guidance. I admire your business ethics.
