DIY musicians in this age need to take a page from that recent Amanda Palmer post and realize that selling their songs (excluding licensing; i.e. sales to the general public) should not be their main income generator. Use the songs to create a fan-base that you can sell things to that cannot be downloaded. Musicians are so creative (well some at least) when creating the music and then fall asleep when it is time for promotion and sales. I think everyone needs to realize that the selling of music itself is dead; any sales generated from an artist's tracks should be considered a bonus. It's time for artists to stop complaining and get creative. It is still possible to make money in this industry with some marketing savvy/innovative ideas.

As an aspiring artist, this post gets me very excited. What an excellent way to monetize your music (or products associated with it) on the web.
