If you really wanna sell the album, charge $15 bucks for it and tape a Jackson on the cover.

Aight Skamp there are some things you have to think about... are you pressing this album up and is it going to be a quality product? I am talking about official shit jewel case, artwork and all that. Or are you going to just make it a downloadable mp3 album that you want to sell? There are several options...I mean dudes already hit you up with good info on how to sell it, but check this:

http://www.oasiscd.com/

This is some professional shit... you get upc codes and all that, so it can be sold in record stores... so you already know its official... you just gotta make investments... theres nice little packages that are least expensive like this one:

http://www.oasiscd.com/products/JewelCase.asp

you can get 500 cd's for $940 and you can always bargain witht the company. So look at it like this... if you sell each copy for like 10 bucks thats 5 g's minus the $940 you invested. So thats a nice little profit fam... you just gotta get on your grind.

Think about it if you are serious.... you and jig can def make some good money of this... its like $470 each you invest to get them pressed up pro style and then get on your grind... Its all about making a good product... your gonna need dope artwork, and high quality tracks to make this work, but I think you guys can do it.

BTW I got all of this business knowledge from Sinapse, so give him props too lol.

I mean Skamp you gotta get on your street hustle grind. Internet... everything man... Lets say you handle 250 copies and jig handles 250 both of you can def do that as long as you keep forming a large fan base and just og all out... hit record stores and have your shit up on the shelves... But your biggest grind will be out in the streets and online... get known man. Thats the point of all this music shit at the end of the day.

Word to that Proof. You dont want to be sitting at home with 400 copies left on some... damn we only sold 100 and we dont know who else wants it... so basically you sold 100 lets say for 10 bucks... made a good G, but not really because thats almost how much you paid to get them pressed. You need to build a heavy fan base! there is not only Wu-Corp...there are a lot of hip hop forums on the net... get popular there...lace cats up with the best shit you have...dont come weak because some cats at other forums arent as nice as some of the cats here...trust me lol.

this link here shows how to put your tracks on itunes

Theres charges for it but I guess you knew that.

If you create a facebook group Ive got a second account with a shit load "friends" and i'll keep inviting people to join it cos Ive added some application that gives me like 25 adds overnight.

If people hear some intros or tracks from within the group or some youtube links they might become fans.

You should do this on myspace and bebo too.

If ya want, it'll only take like 5 mins to invite them all

Peace

Pretty much everything has been said...

Based on my research, I think Oasis is the best company...they offer all sorts of packaging (jewel cases, digipaks, multi disk formats, booklets, etc) and make a real high quality product that doesn't fall apart and shit, plus they have lots of great promo tools like small posters, t shirts, download cards, etc

Net grind is what it is, but you gotta hit the local scene and eventually expand out regionally if you gonna really do anything...

Most important thing though is the quality of the music, from top to bottom - beats, content, flows, sound quality, mixing/engineering - all that has to be at or nearly approaching pro level otherwise you are gonna flop hard if you start asking for people to buy your music.

skamp, do you guys do live shows? if not you should look into getting opening spots at local shows, especially if you end up making physical product. if you get a local following, you'd be surprised at how many cds you can move if they're priced reasonably. if they cost about $2 to make, i'd charge 5.

One thing so Important for that is the Support , and support begins with tha Fam

hope that our corp family< i think we re more than 60 peeps > gotta support each member that bring an official original CD

if a member pay 1000 bucks for pressing so he gotta know that at least his wu corp family gotta pay his halb coast when they support buying his CD and i think no one of us gotta lose

and gotta bring us more energy to make moree and more sound

first the fam then the Fan

and we have a large universal community that luv our ish , u have only to to look in google for wu corp army , ern dawgy , graaveyaard shifter and more and u gotta see

Ergebnisse 1 - 7 von ungefähr 590516 für graveyard shifter. (0.50 Sekunden
Ergebnisse 1 - 9 von ungefähr 742784 für imperial skillz empera. (0.100 Sekunden
)
Ergebnisse 1 - 9 von ungefähr 825071 für wu corp army. (0.72 Sekunden)

ErErgebnissErgebnisse 1 - 8 von ungefähr 410990 für ern dawgy. (0.69 Sekunden)



and we have to play on the high level , no more digital releases it s enough lords , it s time to rock tha professionnal level , analog release is somthing that u can touch and say hey i got an album

we should create a webpage where we gotta sell all corp Army producs , somthing like chambermuzik and hand in hand i think we can got sucess ,

peace fam
