5.0 out of 5 stars It Works Feb. 9 2001
By Bob Drum - Published on Amazon.com
What can I say. I have bought Tim Sweeney's Guide To Releasing Independent Records & The Living Room Sessions. Once I decided to follow what this guy said in his books and tapes, it worked. I have repressed three times.
The new book works great. My site didn't do anything before. Sweeney shows you how to convert offline people into online traffic. Before I read the book I was getting a 1,000 hits a week, now I get 26,000 hits a week. What can I say, what the guy says works. I quit my day job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alright it works Feb. 6 2001
By Mike Timlin - Published on Amazon.com
I'm a musician in New York. The worst music city in the country. That makes me skeptical of everything. When I emailed web sites like Amazon, CD Baby, MP3.com, everyone gave me ideas of what to do. All of them said use Tim Sweeney's new internet book. So I bought a copy. Still being skeptical, I tried some of the stuff in the book.
All I can say is that it worked. I'm selling 24 CDs a week through my site and my sales on Amazon and CD Baby are up about 25%. I don't feel like I have even tried half the stuff in the book. This guy made a beliver out of me. I'm buying the rest of his books to see what else I can learn from him.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment March 5 2002
By jon - Published on Amazon.com
Usually Sweeny's books are good, however this one touches on stuff that has been covered over and over. I found maybe 2 things that were semi useful.
Needless to say I was completely disappointed.
I wish that once in my life that I could find a Music Business book that covers fresh material.
Sorry Tim but I have to pass on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money! April 21 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book is incredible! Before I read it, I had no clue how to use the Internet for getting my music out there. I am pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to understand and has tons of examples, resources, and even a checklist to help me keep track of my promotion campaign. The best thing about this book is that will never be out dated like other Internet books, because their web site has updates to the checklist and chapters. This is THE book if you want to get your music online. Well worth the money!

1.0 out of 5 stars Overrated and overhyped Feb. 28 2001
By Nancy Sturgeon - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book thinking it might finally offer some new ideas or quality support for productively using the internet to sell music. After getting it, I was once again disappointed. Sure, there are a few tidbits here and there, but very little that will help someone who is already selling 40-50 CD's a week to improve much on that. Some ideas are downright ridiculous and dated. Has this author bought the internet hype that has most dot coms out of business or barely hanging on? It seems so. Perhaps this was a good read a year ago when people believed the absurd hype of the net. Now it is just ho hum.
