there is no magic time, there is no magic level of professionalism and there is no magic words anybody can tell you when it comes to selling music online. Artists and producers trying to build up the quality of their music, thinking that one day its going to be absolutely perfect will miss out on a lot. Instead you want to focus on getting experience, through putting yourself out there. If people don’t like what you do, they will tell you! Then you can try and do things different. If they don’t like your recording quality, try buying a new microphone or re arrange your setup.
when you put a price tag on your music, you tell people that you are a professional and that you deserve to be paid for your work. It doesn’t really matter what your level of experience is. stop listening to all these people telling you that you need to wait, because the best way to learn and improve is by doing. When you upload your music and start promoting it, you will either sell or not sell. Try different approaches and figure out along the way what works and what does not. If you want to be succesful in music, The most important thing is never giving up and always trying to improve.
Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.
