Micheal.  There is a number of basic things you need to do to make your music discoverable. Firstly you need to edit your soundcloud file and add in your's and Matthews name into the title. The content in the title becomes the URL which is important. Also add the correct tags, again important as people searching on Soundcloud won't find you. Your tag says trad music. It should probally say. "Irish folk traditional music Michael Benn Matthew Ring" Also the genre. You have not turned on the embed facility - this is an artist decision, but if its on people can embed it elsewhere. Most artists make at least one track embeddable. You should also add content to the description on Soundcloud with links to your facebook and website if you have one.

Can't find a place to buy your album. Not on CDBaby or on your own website. Need to consider this.

Website. These can be built for free these days. Get you tech savy son or niece who always has their face glued to their iPhone to do if for you. Bung em €50. That will concentrate their minds.

Tradconnect.  While we focus on traditional music in the main we do cover the odd folkie type album as well. If members post a well written blog with an image and an embedded audio we may feature it and post it back out to our FB/Twitt/Digg. Provide some interesting content about your struggles to get it recorded or whatever, something that is of benefit to other members and is interesting. This way you are sharing with the community and people pick up on it.

Most sales come from gigging...so gig.

Hope this is of some help. Just my ramblings.  People who actually record may have some more informed views.

One other point on url's. When you look at the url for this discussion at the top of the page it is as follows

http://tradconnect.com/forum/topics/promote-cd?xg_source=activity

this is what Google indexes

When you add content to this or any webforum you get a chance to edit the url. If the url said the following

tradconnect.com / forum / topics /michael - benn - matthew - ring - dance - the - flagstones - folk - how - to - promote - albums

Then Google will index this and you have a better chance of getting picked up in searches
