The first thing you need to do after you have made your music available for sale on MySpace, is to try and develop and a viral marketing system. Contact your friends and make them aware that you need their help to get your MySpace music business on the go. Ask them to spread the word out by placing a link your MySpace music page on their MySpace profile. When people go a MySpace profile that has a link to your music page, it increases exposure to your page and you have more chances of gathering potential traffic in terms of people looking to buy music on MySpace.
Quality of the music that you upload on MySpace is very important. Make sure that you only put quality stuff up for sale. Uploading music that was not recorded properly, is missing a few lyrics here and there or was just meant to a practice session is not a good idea.
Keep in mind what the audience expects from you. It is true that you can not always please everyone. But you have got a fair chance of boosting sales on MySpace if the music that you put up for sale is similar to what music lovers are looking for. Also, while quoting a price, be realistic. Never try to charge more than 99 cents for a song or you will end up with no sales at all.
Posting a MySpace bulletin is a great idea to get more exposure. Release a few bulletins about the quality of your songs, which tracks are available, the price that you are charging etc.
