The desired “buzz” for an uprising singer, disc jockey or band about their musical masterpiece is difficult to achieve. Why? For besides the talents that endeared them to the fans, they also need a product to be widely circulated. Most people know that digital and physical circulations are the two sides of music distribution nowadays. Online downloads would best classify digital distribution, while albums or records, tapes, and compact discs would define the physical aspect of distribution. Yes, it is true that the digital aspect of distribution is really important, however, I cannot help myself to say that so many people these days neglect the need for physical distribution.
For this discourse, I will firmly refer to compact disc (CD) distribution whenever I mention the physical aspect of distribution. It is because the latter forms such as records and tapes are now deemed obsolete. Putting a tangible product in the hands of the audience is what physical distribution is all about. The music stored in a CD and kept in the compartments of car or even added to the shelf of a sentimental music collection, does not make it more sentimental than what the music in the digital form offers. The physical distribution of your material is still necessary whether it will serve as your final product or just for promotional purposes.
The need to buy their own compact disc duplicators for their material is evident to many independent musicians and bands of today. I agree that this need is vital but when they have no laborers, time and money to fund such an operation, I would say that it is no longer that important. What will truly save money for the majority of musicians and bands is outsourcing their duplication needs to an online CD duplication service. The task of working on your behalf will be taken on by the CD duplication company of your choice using their own top of the line equipment. If you attempted to buy duplicators and control your own operation, then indeed, you most likely would get a much better product than what you could have afforded. In most instances, the only negative fact about outsourcing your material is the fact that it will limit you to the rules of our chosen company. However, many of the duplication services online generally offer a wide range of duplication options.
You can freely choose from a huge variety of online CD duplication companies. For anyone out there who is planning to hire an online CD duplication company, I highly recommend that you do research first, because there are all sorts of companies online, some are really good and some are not even worth trying. After the research, compare that company’s products and prices to the products and service of their competitors. Also, you must check that company’s online reviews. That is surely a great way to determine which company will give you the best product you need without making you broke and wasting your precious time.
