IMD Partnerships & Endorsements Below are just a few companies IMD is affiliated with. IMD also endorses and recommends the many different services they provide Independent Artists.

What company is the largest online distributor of independent music? CD Baby that's who. Based out of Portalnd, Oregon, CD Baby doesn't interface with any outside distributors, or record labels. Instead they sell your music directly to the consumer, shipping it from their  warehouse. Besides selling CD's on their site, musical downloads are also available, and they can deliver your music to other download retailers, such as (iTunes, Rhapsody, eMusic, and many more) if you request it. Once your music is sold CD Baby pays the artist right away, and CD Baby keeps 9% of your earnings. One important thing to note: in a regular record, or distribution deal, musicians only make $1-$2 per album, if they’re ever lucky enough to get paid by their label at all. When selling through CD Baby, musicians make $6-$12 per album and get paid weekly.

They contact RDX and preview any release they are interested in and if they like - they request a copy. RDX sends out a CD listing, complete with biography, reviews/quotes, streaming audio samples and the ability for all registered Radio, Club DJs & Media to request and receive a promotional copy of your CD for airplay and/or review.  You only mail your CD when requested.
