Music is a commodity. There is so much of it out there that it can be very confusing.
However, it is a true-ism that the cheaper music is, the less people tend to value it. How do you feel when you compare the CD album that you paid full price for versus the free music that you recently downloaded. All things being equal, you probably value the full price CD more.
Many of us are used to buying music from our favourite artists either in CD format from a music store or as a digital download. We don’t seem to mind paying the money if we value the music.
So make your music valuable, not just a free commodity.
