Merchandise for musicians, marketers, and everyone else
If you are a musician, information marketer, or wish to have some other product or promo item to giveaway via CD, consider Kunaki.com.
I can’t remember how I found this company but holy cow!!
You can order as few as 1 CD at a production cost of $1. Of course, the shipping cost ordering 1 CD doesn’t really scale. But as a for instance, 40 CD’s results in a cost per CD of under $2.00.
The come in a jewel case with a 2 panel, 4 color, insert and the CD is also printed 4 color.
Everything they do is automated and tightly controlled. This means you don’t get a lot of options but from my perspective – at the cost and flexibility of very low-runs, that’s fine.
You don’t even use a web form to order. You download their software, create an account (through their software) and prepare and submit your CD or DVD artwork and files… through their software! It is very basic, very sparse, and very cool.
Elsewhere around the web
Intellectual Predator: This happens a lot in the technology and social media space. I used to get called almost daily… friends asking for advice or assistance on fixing their computer, what software to buy, how to perform x or y function. But my brain is my commodity. If a car salesman ask for my advice on social media, it isn’t the same as him advising me on a car.. it is more akin to him giving me a car.
I write a lot about Google. You should be using their many tools. Mashable discusses Google Analytics. Analytics allow you to see who comes to your website, where they come from, and the search terms used to get there.
One of the tools I’ve used for year – thanks to my friend Mike Martinez, is FileZilla – a FREE FTP (file transfer protocol) client and server.
