[fbshare type=”button”] [tweetmeme] Indie rocker Robbie Tee launches his new official website at www.robbieteemusic.com and gives away his latest single “Never”, which was launched on Jamsphere Rock Radio recently.
“We needed an official home for all my media and goings on”, Robbie told us. ” I want to move to the next level where I can manipulate communication and sales” he continued.
“Like I have said many times before this. iTunes, Amazon and all the other third party mp3 selling platforms are very cool and well-known globally. All a user has to do is name search you, buy and download. It’s that simple. If you’re the Black-Eyed Peas…”
“If not, who do users search for… Robbie Tee? No, they’ll probably check for Nickleback or Maroon5. I said probably, because no-one really wants to buy music anymore. I mean let’s not fake it, we all know how easy it is to find and download free music.”
“If you’re able to find and download Eric Clapton for free, why should you buy Robbie Tee? And that’s where the key for indie artists lay. Not many people find it profitable stealing and uploading unknown indie music to emule and torrents for no-one to download, so we have an advantage over major artists here.”
“What you then need, and I can’t stress this more, is to create your very own niche fan base, then take them home with you where you will show them around your house, share a cold beer and take out your music collection for them to listen to. Maybe, just maybe, they’ll like you and your music enough to buy a copy and support your career. The world has 7 billion people, you only need a few thousand loyal fans to keep all engines running.”
Now I’ve got my fan base started and I’ve just finished building my home, it’s time to invite my friends around…get the point Rick?
Sure do Robbie Tee, now we know why the last album has sold almost 50,000 copies to date.
Way to go!
