That's the part that gets me bouncing out of bed in the morning, finding ways to increase that.
I don't think that I have 1 artist that has signed up with CDBaby that hasn't sold at least 1 cd. Most have sold more. Our local music store actually has a clicker to count how many people are coming in to see if it's worth keeping certain hours. This is probably not an isolated trend!

All you have to do is have a teenager around. Ask them if they want a CD player or a iPod? I rest my case.
