Our new website aims to bring artists and customers closer together. It’s a win/win.
Portland, OR (PRWEB) July 11, 2012
The new CDBaby.com, which premiered in beta version in June, is designed to feature more music in more places. The clean and expanded design highlights the sheer breadth of what CD Baby has to offer. New navigation and search tools make it easier for customers to discover new music.
“This re-design is great for musicians AND their fans,” says CD Baby president Brian Felsen. “CD Baby pays a higher cut on MP3 sales than any other digital music retailer; and our new website aims to bring artists and customers closer together. It’s a win/win. Fans like to know that their support of indie music is literally going further with CD Baby, and musicians are, quite obviously, happy to earn more money.”
In addition to improving the online retail and music discovery experience for music fans, the new CDBaby.com comes with several additional features that benefit independent artists, including schema.org markup and a revamped linkmaker tool.
“We optimized the new cdbaby.com for search engine visibility using Google-sanctioned techniques," explains Felsen. "This will make it easier for customers to find CD Baby artists in search engines and easier for our musicians to sell music.”
CD Baby is the largest digital distributor of independent music in the world. CD Baby distributes over 4 million tracks to dozens of music retailers including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Rhapsody, and Spotify, and pays artists weekly for their product sales. From their Portland, OR headquarters, CD Baby warehouses and ships over 360,000 independent CD titles to a customer base that spans the entire globe.
