You can always make your own song free, but ensuring that they are distributed well to your audience is most important. If you have a record label of yourself, you will need to work out a detailed plan to ensure they are out there in the market for your listeners. As you cannot rely on trial and error method to know which one works best for you, here are a few tips that can help you through this.
The easiest way to sell your label is to sell it online. You can start by creating your own online store or else partner with a store that can sell it for you for a small marketing fee. You can go with the one that takes a monthly fee or one that charges a fee per sale. Both are good options as long as the fee is not very high. Sometimes you might find a store that is ready to do it for upcoming musicians, free of cost. It could also be a great idea to have your own online store. It will cost you a bit, but you can promote it during your shows and tours amongst your fans. This way your fans will also find it easy to buy your music anytime from anywhere.
There are some platforms available on the web where you can distribute your music. They may charge you an annual fee and also a setup fee, but if you have a good budget for distribution, you can definitely go for it. The more you place your music everywhere, better are your chances to reach out to your audience.
Try to keep your music in the stores which are in the same area as where you have played in the past. It is seen that music sells best this way. Also look for bigger chain stores which have a demand from all over for different types of music. They may have branches across your country and can get you better publicity.
Alliance with other artists
If you have a good network and connections, you might even think of alliancing with other musicians or bands who might be willing to trade with you the sale of your music wherein you can promote their music. For example, you might come across a guitarist or a drummer who will be interested in working with you and promoting your music with theirs.
There is of course no better way to distribute. You have to give each of the modes a try and see which one works the best for you. Over time, you will learn how you can do it better.
