CD Baby
« on: February 23, 2004, 02:14:00 pm »
Anybody ever use this site?:
 
  CD Baby
 
 Their slogan is:
  a little CD store with the best new independent music
 
 
 I found an elusive cd there recently & it seems to be a good source.
 
 But that's not the real reason I'm sharing. Here's the order confirmation I received. I was amused:
 
 
 Your CD has been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.
 
 A team of 50 employees inspected your CD and polished it to make sure it was in the best possible condition before mailing.
 
 Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your CD into the finest gold-lined box that money can buy.
 
 We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Portland waved 'Bon Voyage!' to your package, on its way to you, in our private CD Baby jet on this day, Friday, February 20th.
 
 I hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby.  We sure did. Your picture is on our wall as 'Customer of the Year'.  We're all exhausted but can't wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!

I have used it a few times. I remember it being very fast.
 
 A friend's band (Great American) sells a disc through the site.

It's a fabulous site run by people who *really* love music.  I use it when I can.

That was pretty obvious to me too Bags. I immediately wanted to work there.
 
 I'm anxiously awaiting the parade to my door that is the delivery team!    :D

I love CD Baby. Just purchased a CD from them on Saturday for a friend and it's already been shipped.
 
 I like the variety of browsing functions they have because you can go by music styles, geography or even album covers.

We currently use CD Baby to sell our last CD and they've been fantastic. We get notification when they sell a CD and with whatever info the buyer is willing to give, such as their email address, so we can thank them!  CD Baby recently had made some deals for digital distribution as well as having their CDs available through towerrecords.com. We've seen this work really well with people buying off tower's site!
 
 Also the company is only 3 guys so they're lying when they said 50!!  :)

(1) That's a GREAT idea...and related to why I enjoy using them and will again - Recognition is a very powerful tool.
 
 (2) Does that mean they don't have a CD Baby jet either?!   :D

CD Baby's having a $5 sale.
 
 Just received this e-mail from them (so cute!):

Hi [Random Citizen's real name] -
 
 Ever since you bought that first CD from us (VARIOUS ARTISTS:
 Americana Motel) - we've had your picture on our wall as "Customer of
 the Year".
 
 Every Friday night, we bake some mint cookies and sit in a circle
 around your picture, chanting, "Oh [Random Citizen's real name], oh [Random Citizen's real name] - what would make
 you happy?"
 
 After weeks of obsessing, I think we've finally got something that
 will make you happy:
 
 The $5 CD sale.
 
 Go to http://www.cdbaby.com/sale
 
 We put over 6000 albums on sale for only $5.
 
 They are some great full-priced CDs that still sell for full price,
 but once you have at least three different "$5 specials" in your
 shopping cart at the same time, you will see their price drop to just
 $5 each.
 
 We did this so you could afford to experiment and get a LOT of new
 music at once, so feel free to get as many as you want!
 
 START HERE: http://www.cdbaby.com/sale
