how to make 2k a month on itunes and spotify by writing songs about poop, pee and more
I recently interviewed musician Matt Farley about how his catalog of over 18,000 songs generates revenue of two thousand dollars a month from sites like Spotify and Itunes.
Matt writes about a wide array of topics like office supplies, poop, pee, celebrities and pretty much everything else you can think of. He's incredibly prolific, sometimes cranking out as many as 100 songs a day. Instead of spending weeks and months recording his masterpiece that may or may not ever be heard by the public, Matt is going for volume, writing and recording an insane amount of music, hoping that each track will earn him a dollar or two.
It's an interesting approach, that's yielding some interesting results.
Check out my interview with Matt and let me know what you think of his approach to recording and marketing his music in the comments.

Because of these guys we need quality control in digital distribution.

And what would you propose? I say the quality control is left to the free market. If no one wants to hear it they will not buy it. No money, less incentive to create...

I don't agree with that if somebody make 200 low quality songs in the same time that somebody else make one quility song. It's much harder to find that 1 good song. After listening 20 bad songs people will give up and stop looking for some new stuff. So the 1 quality song is left unheard. The guy who made the bad quality songs will earn something. The quality guy nothing. What happens the quality guy will stop making music. So we are left with the non talented spammers.

But he's making money from it.... Music is all subjective.. Not everyone is going to like Justin Bieber but he has his fans and sells music. The cream rises to the top... that quality song will get heard, but you have to push it. Writing and recording the song is only half the battle. If you give up after making one good song and complain because it's not being heard then you are in the wrong business.

Overhere spamming is illegal, what he does is nothing more than spamming so it should be illegal.If he make money from it doesn't mean he is doing the right thing. People also make mondy by robbing a bank. He is a bad side effect of the internet and reality tv were the non talented people have a change to be famous, it's pathetic.
