    ReverbNation has tools to help distribute your music both in MP3 files (on sites like iTunes) and also CDs.
    It's also a good promotional tool to push your music out there.
    Fans can buy shirts there too which have no upfront cost to you.

    Alternatives are:

    1. Branding your music with your own professionally-designed website, and offering paid MP3 downloads and CDs through the mail

    Watch a video tutorial on how to sell mp3 from a Wordpress site

    and

    2. Actually hititng the streets and finding brick and mortar shops that sell music and asking to put your stuff on consignment there

    Selling music is all about finding the people who buy it.
    If your group is booking shows, the people paying to see you are buying music. Looking for local stores that sell music around the venues that you play at can be profitable. Most likely a lot of the same people that came to see you perform will be lurking around there.

    I just found that website link there... I need to check it out myself but looks good...though

    I always though of getting other producers beats and selling them for them on my soundclick on or my own website... though about Super Beat Bros. for a name lol...
    something like beats by the pound four guys... in a production group

    this site seems really interesting and at only $29.99 for all the stuff he/she giving away man.. seems like a no-brainer...
