CD Baby: $58M in 2013 Revenue

And WHY aren’t you using CD Baby Anymore…..

CD Baby has shared some behind the scenes stats that also provide a seldom seen view of the vibrancy of independent and D.I.Y. music.

The company currently distributes 5 million digital tracks on behalf of 330,000 artists. In 2013, those artists generated $58 million in revenue, up from $53 million in 2012. This year, 77% of artist revenue came from were digital downloads, 8% from streaming and 15% from physical goods.

Physical good sales stats would not include at direct and at-gig sales and other transactions made outside of CD Baby‘s distribution network.

What’s Your Niche?

Image

Often business owners view a niche market as narrowing their sales or cutting into a profit margin, so they fear it. The truth is, a niche market could be defined as a component that gives your business power. A niche market allows you to define who you are marketing to.

When you know who are you are marketing to it’s easy to determine where your marketing energy and dollars should be spent.

Take for example a car dealership. A car dealership calls and tells me they want me to help them develop an internet marketing strategy. My first question as always is “Who is your target audience?” They answer by telling me that their audience is everyone. They want to market to anyone interested in buying a car. Now, let’s keep in mind that this car dealership is located in New York. I approach the process by working with the client and explaining to them that, although they market to a person in Seattle, because that “person is interested in buying a car” the chances of that person coming from Seattle to New York to purchase that car is a very unlikely. Therefore, they’ve wasted time and money and will more than likely see no return on either. By the time our conversation is finished, I’ve helped them see why narrowing their niche market down to be “anyone interested in buying a car within a 50 mile radius” makes really good sense. They now have power. They know where to spend time and money to market and their vision is clear. They are now 10 steps ahead of the other car dealership located 20 miles away who is marketing to “anyone interested in buying a car.”

There is even greater importance in having a well-defined niche market when planning your internet marketing strategy to achieve marketing success online. The most common misconception about online marketing is that if you build it they will come or that having an online business will make you wealthy. The reality is that you have to find your niche market, offer a product or service that they re demanding and get them to come to you, in order reach a level of financial success via the internet.

Defining your niche market before you embark on your Internet marketing strategy is important for the following 5 reasons.

 

    1. You have the ability to maximize your marketing budget by targeting your defined niche market. You’ll know exactly where to advertise. You’ll know where to look to find blogs and related sites that are catering to your market. This gives you a starting point.

 

    1. Your website can then be optimized for search engines so that your niche market can easily find you.

 

    1. You are able to cater your website to your niche market. You can develop your site to guide your viewers and help them find solutions or products that you offer that are specific to the problems that your niche market encounters.
    2. A defined niche market makes it easier to develop ideas for new products or services that inherently appeal to your specific niche.

 

  1. You have an upper-hand in establishing yourself as a leader in your industry.

Do you now see the importance of having a niche market? Are you struggling with who your niche market is? If you answered “yes,” spend some time asking yourself the following questions:

 

  • What is it that my current clients have in common?
  • How do I set myself apart from the competition?
  • What is different about the services or products that I offer?
  • What are the “extras” that I bring to the market?
