I've had over 4,500 plays on Soundcloud for all my various songs and it occurs to me that maybe, just maybe I might make some money from people listening to my songs.

The first question is, do any of you do this?

The second question is how do you do it? As in which distribution company do you use? for example, CD Baby? Tunecore, Ditto?

I know there are a bunch of them. I'm just trying to see which is the best for me. I've done a fair bit of research and I'm undecided. Some of them appear to have hidden fees. I do know that nobody does this for free but I'm trying to find the most efficient one. Let's just say the best for my money.

If any of you have had any experiences with any of these companies I'd really like to hear from you.

Thanks! Jeremykeys.

First of all, cool! 4,500 hundred listens sounds like a lot. I'm dabbling in CD baby so I'll let you know how it goes.

If you're planning on releasing music frequently, you may want to give Distrokid a look, especially if you're doing cover songs of any sort.

I did have a positive experience with CDbaby with my last band, too, though. It's been a long time since I've looked into the particulars of it, though.

Earning money by making music is very hard when you are not known. Now there are a lot of ways to promote your music. You could post ads on Facebook or on some Instagram pages for twenty-four hours. If you don't have the money for advertising, you could use some apps or games to get a small amount of money. I used to play these games and earn around twenty dollars a week, by playing them in my free time. It is a small amount of money but I think it will be enough for some ads.
