I was checking out some of the great comments from folks at Nimbit (Kevin Ebaugh), ReverbNation (Jed Carlson), CD Baby (Tony van veen), and TuneCore (Peter Wells) in the post 7 Ways to Sell Your Music on iTunes, and happened to notice this Google ad on the page for Amazon’s music service, CreateSpace:
How nice, a relevant ad regarding digital distribution for indie artists,” I thought. I clicked to learn more (and not just to earn the $0.05 or so I’d get from the click), and arrived at CreateSpace’s landing page:
The link titled “Learn more about the selling music as mp3 downloads”, while grammatically incorrect, sounded interesting, so I clicked:
Wa-wa-wa-waaaaa…. The page was not available, and I, a potential customer (or interested blogger?), left disappointed. (Ok, so CreateSpace isn’t broken, exactly, but its landing page is.)
Moral: Check your links before spending money on a Google AdWords campaign.
