Sell More Music CDs Offline

Here are some cool ideas and tools you can use to sell more of your CDs in the real world (as opposed to the online world).

Jeff Kartak is a working musician who created a new point-of-purchase CD display and sales generator called The CD Seller. It holds 12 CDs, has a locking cash box with a slot for cash and checks, a sign holder and a fitting that allows it to be mounted on any standard mic stand. Visit TheCDseller.com and read this posting at CD Baby for more details.

Over at David Hooper's IndieMusician.com blog, a reader named Hog Whitman shares his unique story of using a Suma Dek display to sell CDs at a local gas station. (Scroll down to the Comments section.) He also lists tips for setting up a similar sales arrangement in bars.

Some other places to purchase affordable retail displays are DiscMarket.com, CounterDisplay.com and CardboardDisplays.com.

Remember, these ideas and tools amount to nothing until you put them to USE.

Hello Bob,

Thank you for the links to CD "point of sale" displays - these are really great items and so far I havenĀ“t found anyone who makes these in Europe.

I really appreciate those links and am buying one of these items, very definitely! Thanks again - A.M.
