Advantage to sell your Music? In
the music industry, CDs usually have to reach a critical mass
before making it into major wholesale channels. The Advantage
program was designed to change the rules and level the
playing field by providing the tools and framework to ensure
that all titles appear frequently and prominently throughout
Amazon.com.It allows almost anyone to open a direct account
with Amazon.com and put their products on our virtual
shelves. As an independent musician or small studio, the
Advantage program allows you to have a direct and profitable
relationship with Amazon, putting your CDs in front of
millions of qualified customers. If Amazon already buys your
top-selling CDs, the Advantage program is a great way to list
everything else in your catalog.
