Understanding iTunes Charts
iTunes charts are mostly based on how many songs or albums were bought during a certain time period. So, it's important to know how they work and come up with a plan to boost sales.
Creating Pre-release Buzz
Getting people excited about your music before it comes out is the best way to get sales right away. Use "social media" to interact with your fans, run pre-order campaigns, and get the word out about your planned release to boost your initial sales.
Harnessing the Power of Pre-orders
Pre-orders count towards first week sales figures on iTunes. A compelling pre-order campaign can catapult your chart position on release day. Chartsyou can assist with strategizing and executing effective pre-order campaigns.
Strategizing Your Release
Timing is important. Think about avoiding dates when big artists are putting out new music, or choose a time when your target audience is most likely to be around.
Choosing Your Charting Country
iTunes has charts for each country. Finding the country where you have a lot of fans or where your type of music is popular can help you get on the charts a lot.
Setting the Right Price
The price of your song or record can change where it is on the charts. Setting a price that is competitive can help you sell more songs and move up the iTunes charts.
