Past Record Store Day

How can I sell more CDs or DVDs?
Good question. There are four things you have to do.

1. Realize that it is your job to make people want your CD or DVD.
2. Figure out who will love your work.
3. Make sure they know it exists and that it is good. Focus on the people who are most likely to appreciate you before you aim for the masses.
4. Tell them to buy it from Bull Moose

We should focus on #4. Here are some easy things you can do.

  • At gigs, announce that your CD is available after the show and at Bull Moose.
  • Link to our home page or directly to your CD/DVD on our website. Use your website, Facebook, Myspace, etc. Here is an "I sell on bullmoose.com" banner for your use.
  • Print "CD available at Bull Moose" on every gig flyer and every time you e-mail your fans. You can find a number of versions of our logo here.
  • Mention us in any ads you run, especially around the time of your CD release party.
  • Make sure your press kits mention that we sell your disc. Booking agents, radio programmers, and reviewers will take you more seriously if you have a disc available for sale.
  • Ask reviewers, DJs, and anyone else who will tell people about your work to mention that we carry your CD or DVD.
  • Try to make things happen at the same time. People will be more likely to remember your project if they hear about you a bunch of times within a few days. For example, do a wave of CD release party flyering around the time you the local arts papers review your CD. See if you can get on the local music radio shows the same week.

Set up time
You will have to spend 10-20 minutes on our website. It will take about a week to set you up in our system. We will tell you when we are ready to receive your discs. This is a good thing to do while you are waiting for your discs to be duplicated. If you give us enough notice, we will be ready before you even have your discs.

Do I need a UPC?
We do not need you to have one, but you will need one if you want industry folks to track your sales. Some pressing plants will give you UPC. Do not make one up on your own!

Should I register with SoundScan or VideoScan?
It costs money so it depends on your goals. We will report your sales if you have a UPC. If you register your item, Neilsen will keep track of your sales and report them to the rest of the industry. This is important if you are considering distribution or a recording contract for this or a future project.

How many copies should I send?
Please limit yourself to five copies per Bull Moose. It's a good idea to send up to five extra copies to the Scarborough store. Extra CDs in Scarborough will be sent to the other stores. If your previous releases have sold well for us, we might need more than five copies per store. Please e-mail bullmoosemusic@yahoo.com to make arrangements.

Which stores should I stock?
Only stock your disc in towns where you are actively promoting yourself locally. For musicians, this probably means gigging. Don't rely on your MySpace page to send people to our stores. MySpace can help you get people out to gigs.

When should I send more discs?
You have access to a website where you can track your sales. You can also figure out how much you sold from the checks we will send you. When you have sold half of your original stock, please send that much inventory to our warehouse store at 456 Payne Rd., Scarborough, ME 04074. Include a note so we know you are sending us stuff to sell. We will send those discs to any Bull Moose that needs them.

Only have one contact per band
It will be easier for everybody if you have only one person deal with us. Otherwise we will set up multiple accounts for your band. That will delay your payments.

How can I change my contact info?
E-mail bullmoosemusic@yahoo.com.

Can I change the price you pay me?
Yes, but we want you to pay the setup fee all over again.  E-mail bullmoosemusic@yahoo.com with your confirmation number the new price.  Changing the price is more work than setting up the item in the first place.  We would rather not do it. 

Can I get my stuff back?
Absolutely. E-mail bullmoosemusic@yahoo.com to make arrangements.

In-store performances
We love them when they are done properly. We hope that you can get 50-100 people to turn up. If you are not positive that you can do that, it probably is too early to consider an in-store. We promote our in-store performances, but our promotion doesn't work if nobody knows who you are (yet!)

Can I get my CD/DVD onto your big displays?
Absolutely! If your item sells well, we will automatically display it in our Top Sellers section. It will stay there for as long as it is one of our top sellers. We always have a few local artists in our Top Sellers sections. We want to see you there too!
