Alternative Sales Sources for Your Music
Following, is a list of alternative sources that may be interested in carrying your music for sale for their particular clients and customers, if only they were aware of your music.
Most of the clients and customers are already "captive" audiences who are waiting on a product or service, so why not promote (and sell) to them as they wait?
Additionally, if these sources have their own in-house music system (which many do), you should also speak with them regarding adding your music to their own in-house "playlist."
I have also suggested genres that I feel will lend themselves best to the particular businesses below, however, it will also depend on the businesses' own personal tastes as well.
