TuneCore: Helping Songwriters

I’ve always loved music – not just because of the rhythm but most of the time, I like songs because of their amazing lyrics. What does it take to be a songwriter anyway? I always ask myself. I may not know but it’s good now I understand a bit, especially after reading this wonderful post of an interview with Pete Rogers of TuneCore Creative team.

Listening to songs are fun but it’s more fun learning on how a songwriter produces his or her own music. There are so many things they need before it reaches the TV Films, television shows and the likes. It’s not an easy task to become famous in a day, it’s not even easy to get a simple like in Facebook for your band or so.

Fortunately, this is where experts in TuneCore can help us out. Provided that we choose to work with them, it’s a sure hit to be successful just in time for your goal.

iTunes Pre-Order Benefits

When I started collecting toy figures, I discovered what “PO” or “Pre-Order” means. Before, it didn’t make much sense since I was clueless of how it works until later on that I finally understood it.

Basically, you let your consumers buy beforehand and also let them have it with a much more affordable price or what you can consider as “discounted” price. Think of it as a store on a soft opening with loads of freebies with their products.

Now, TuneCore artists and fans can also get this benefit. TuneCore recently shared something about why iTunes Pre-Order is a must – in this article. Sure enough, the list here explains pretty much why you should really get “Pre-Order” available for you and your fans because both benefits in this practice.
