Start “selling” your new music before its official release date.
A pre-sale on iTunes or Amazon allows your fans to order your music anywhere from one week to six months in advance of its release. When the drop date arrives, your pre-sale customers will automatically be able to download and listen to your new album.
All pre-sales get credited as sales on the official release date, so the more pre-sales you get, the higher your ranking for that day, increasing your chances of charting. This is exactly how CD Baby artists Tyke T and Shannon Curtis ended up on the charts, both with independent releases.
