yeah 1000 runs are a thing of the past for small labels now, ( we were doing 2500 runs in the 1990s )mr lee wrote:I guess what I meant is that digital sales could give some impression of how strong the label is doing overall. At least enough to give confidence to try vinyl. 300 is a lot easier of a number to digest than say a 1000, which is what we used to consider a small run.steevio wrote:^^^
i'm not entirely sure that monitoring the digital sales will be an effective way to guage a potential vinyl release, unless of course your digital sales are exceptional on a particular tune.
Thanks for the advice. You've given me plenty to think about. Glad to know vinyl is still kicking.
the problem with 300 is its just break even, and you'd be running at a loss if you had a picture cover,
i know people who are even doing 200 runs
