    That was great. I think I’m in love with Ariel. Really she had so much great information. I will definitely put it to use in my bands upcoming debut album. Keep up the great work guys and i look forward to future episodes.

  • Wonderful and inspiring. I feel a resurgence in my quest for my own marketing.

  • Brian

    Great interview. I have a little suggestion: It would be great if on your site you provided all the links to all the sites, software and people that she mentioned or more generically that anyone mentions in their podcast. She made reference to a mac program for myspace and I am on my second shuttle through trying to find it.

  • Thanks Brian. I’ll try to be better about that. Sometimes It’s hard with an episode like this where so many things are mentioned. Let me know if you find that sight and I’ll post it.


  • This was fantastic. Terrific work everyone at CD Baby. I took notes and it will be extremely helpful to check out all this information. Everyone should listen to this!
