Heidi Montag Spends Over $1 million on CD…sells less than 1,000 Downloads

23Jan10

Us Magazine reported this week that Heidi Montag…from MTV’s “The Hills”….sold less than 1,000 copies of her first CD, “Superficial.”Us Magazine said that Nielsen SoundScan showed 6588 downloads in its first week. She told the magazine that she put everything she had into the project. She apparently said she spent nearly $2 million dollars on the CD.
So for all of you independent musicians out there, like me……don’t go overboard spending a bunch of money on your CD right away. Make sure you are working on building a fanbase with free resources you find online. Also make sure that it is the songs that get you noticed, not the glitz and glamour of technology. This is not to say that you should not invest money working with talented producers and engineers….because this can rally make an impact….but it does mean that you need to be very smart and not blow all of your money out of the gate.
