I’ve mentioned Nimbit in the past. There are several other online stores where you can market your music, including Bandcamp and Topspin Media, and I can’t make any comparative analyses between them. After receiving a press release from Presonus a few months ago indicating they’d purchased Nimbit I signed up for a free account, moved all of my music from my website to the store front I created on Nimbit, and being letting people know that my work was available there. I love it!
All of my work is set to stream at no cost; if anyone wants to throw a few shekels in the pot they’re free to do so, but it’s not required. I do set a nominal price for those who may want to download tracks to their hard drive.
As I mentioned in a blog last Friday, I just finished work on “1234,” a nearly 18 minute long symphonic work that I produced inside the box. I hoisted this piece onto my Nimbit site and began letting people on Facebook know that it had been posted over the weekend.
When I checked my e mail this morning (Monday) a message from Nimbit was sitting in my inbox that shocked me. Someone I did not know, and had had no contact with, went to my store, listened to “1234,” bought it for $1.99-and tipped me fifty dollars!
Wow, what a great compliment!
