TunesPro Sells Legal 19 Cent Hit Song Downloads
Can low prices attract customers that stay?
U.S. based TunesPro.com is selling 19 cent single track downloads and albums for $1.88-$2.78 from all the major labels; and they are doing it legally. "We have deals with all major labels and with lot of the independent ones," a TunesPro spokesperson told Hypebot, " and every day we get requests for more independent ones to get their stuff on the site".
"We lose 39 cents a song."
How does TunesPro price songs at 70 to 80 cents below iTunes and Amazon? They admit to losing $.39 a song. "But we think this will be good promotion instead of paying ridiculous advertising prices." Eventually the price will rise to $.79 a track in 2-3 months "once we spend our promotion budget."
