Selling your music online is a necessity, there’s no way to avoid it. (and why would you want to?) Digital distribution services like CDBaby, Tunecore, DistroKid, and others provide that crucial step of uploading your music to digital stores and streaming services such as iTunes, Amazon Music, Google Play, Spotify, Shazam, etc… so that you can grow your audience worldwide.

I consider ReverbNation to be a major competitor as well but it has a more specific niche, targeting young artists who are looking for a mailing service, digital distribution, EPK builder, networking opportunities (and more), all wrapped up in one efficient package. Since it’s so much more than just digital distribution, I’ll be focusing on CDBaby, Tunecore, and Distrokid for this comparison.
