How to distribute your own music
Getting your music on services such as Spotify and Apple Music is free and easier than you thought when you use RouteNote for distribution.
If you’ve recently researched publishing music on online stores such as Spotify and Apple Music, you may have been bombarded with many complicated and expensive digital music distribution options. RouteNote tears down the negative aspects of traditional distribution, with simple pricing (including a Free model) and tools available to all artists.
All you need to do is upload your tracks to RouteNote, click the stores and streaming services you want to send your music to such as Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, YouTube Music, Deezer, Amazon Music, TIDAL and many more, then choose between Free Distribution and Premium Distribution. Free Distribution has zero fees or recurring costs, while artists keep 85% of royalties. Premium Distribution costs a small fee but allows artists to keep 100% of the revenue. Our moderation team will check your release and get the album or single up on stores in days.
Publishing music only represents half of the work independent artists are faced with. Our partner site PUSH.fm simplifies the marketing side with three free campaign tools. Fan Links combines all of the stores, streaming services and social media platforms that host your music into one customisable landing page. Pre-saves lets fans save your release to their library before release day. Content Unlocks allows you to reward fans for social actions such as a free download in exchange for a share on Facebook.
Once your release picks up steam, royalties will be paid into your RouteNote account and withdrawn into a PayPal account. Statistics and earnings shows a breakdown of exactly how many streams and revenue each track has made on each store.
