So how do they make money?

Roger Bixley

Volume!

Rick

Unicorns!

Step 1, find underwear! Step 2.... Step 3, profit! ;)

Seriously though it's called advertising. You have enough people going to your website for whatever reason, companies will pay you to advertise on your site. That's why some people are able to make money from Youtube even though they offer a free service.

Advertising isn't the cure-all most people think it is. Even Youtube wasn't profiting until recently. Good luck to Vibedeck though...they're going to need it.

I can't speak for VibeDeck, but some startups chase users first and revenue later - with for example premium services.

Wow, this guys are doing great apparently they are going after bandcamp. I checked they're service seems pretty straight forward.

Chris

Hey guys, lets not forget this is how bandcamp started, being free, and look how well they are doing now. This guys have a plan in mind apparently. Either way, looks pretty cool.

Joe

I'm not sure about this one.

In my opinion selling your own tracks has never been a big problem. Getting people who are not your fans to know that you have music for sale will still be a bigger problem even after you've signed up with VibeDeck.

John

ummm, is that not the same Wil that set up Band Central? So, is he no longer supporting his indie artists there?
