The Future Is Physical

The Future Is Physical

Guess the year, based on these headlines:

1998?  2003?  2014?


2023.  Just last year.  This year, 2024, seems ready to rocket, too.

What happened to cheap, easy, popular digital distribution?

It’s still there (as you know).  It just doesn’t make any money for indie artists and labels.  Great for discovery.  Awesome for portability.  Awful for $$$.  Digital is your marketing tool; not your money maker.

The future is physical (again).  The vast majority of successful Indie artists and labels make the majority of their money from gigging and selling physical merch.  Period.

It may have been awhile since you last pressed vinyl, CDs, or (gasp) cassettes.  Maybe you never have.  Maybe you’ve got a box or two still sitting around… somewhere…

Well, here’s some good news:

  • Your fans want to support you (it’s all about fan engagement)
  • Prices and wait times are dropping for pressing physical media (it’s affordable)
  • Sales trends are great and climbing (it’s popular)
  • And… 

We’re launching Spinney Media to do one thing well:  help indie musicians and labels make real money from physical sales.

Yeah, you could DIY this - order, receive, store, (*gig*), sell,  check and make sure everything is in the right place, make sure your orders are fulfilled and your customers are happy (*market your music*), handle returns… (*day job*)...

Or, for as little as $1.99 a month, we can do it all for you - store, list on multiple marketplaces, collect orders, pick, pack, ship, and provide awesome service to your fans.  The best part?  You keep 100% of your sales for each and every album you sell.

Interested?  Excited?

Join our mailing list at the bottom of our main page.  A lucky few will be invited to apply for our alpha and beta tests while we work toward launch.  And we’ll keep everyone updated along the way.

I look forward to helping each and every one of you jump into this future - the future of physical fulfillment with Spinney Media.
