I wouldnt say going out of business but sales certainly arent as good as they were before the int'l shipping rates went up which is why I have to run these type of sales every so often.

 

Also , why I haven't been able to release as much product this year.

 

I hope to re-print some of the older stuff soon.

I hate to hear that. Word from the inside says that USPS could very well go belly up. The government owes them money so they won't bail them out. Going to get worse I'd say...

Good to hear that mate. While waiting that, another recommendation is extreme discount for international customers to compensate the expensive shipment price, especially for older stuffs that didn't sell so well just to liquidate stocks to cash to invest in the newer bands.

I agree Nightrain - I think my shipping prices are still reasonable considering - BUT I will have to do a free shipping thing sometime and see what happens. And believe me - EVERY sale counts my friends!

 

Yeah, the shipping wasn't too bad. I ordered 3 cds and $10 shipping isn't too bad compared to what some others charge these days for international shipping.

look at Amazon - jumped from $6.89 to $14.29 for international customers - who the hell is gonna buy cd's at that rate? CD buying is already in decline and that just makes it ridiculous.

 

I absolutely agree. I don't buy CD's from Amazon.com anymore because of these outrageous shipping cost. :(

How did the digital download thing work out, Sam ? Was it worth the effort ?

:agree:

 

Recent increases in shipping prices are ridiculous and have really damaged international sales. It's inexplicable - postal traffic must be higher than eer with the rise of eBay and Amazon, so why price people out of it? With more and more online sales and less and less High Street business, surely you'd want some of that action?

 

Some of the postage costs from private eBay sellers in the US are prohibitively high for me as a buyer and I'm sure it's not the sellers' fault at all. The same has happened in the UK, many prices have gone up around 50% in the last year. What is wrong with these people? I'll be using couriers more and more for sending packages within the UK, as the Royal Mail prices have gone through the roof.

I still get a lot out out of country sales but its for out of print items. I have lost sales as well. Like I said before, Ebay forces registered shipping basically. It's $25 to ship ONE cd international with tracking. Insane...

If anyone says International sales aren't down then they are living in a dreamworld. Stats prove it. My Amazon sales used to be about 40% international buyers and now I MIGHT see 2 to 5 out of 100 being Int'l customers.

 

Since I haven't been on ebay since 2009 I don't know how that has affected auctions / buy-it-now sales but I can imagine it's pretty pathetic too.

 

I'm not gonna throw out exact numbers but all I will tell you is this....between 2002 and 2009 I was raking in WELL into 6 figures a year. Now I'm not even making 6 figures or anywhere near it in 2013. Hence the reason why I can't release the product I used to.

 

This government is trying to destroy online business...PERIOD. Bush kinda started it but Obama is finishing it.

I almost bought 6 cds from Demondoll records until I saw that shipping was $21..... :yikes:....I'm definitely buying less cds now than I was before U.S postal rates went up.....I used to pick up 60-70% of my music from the U.S....

    • Seems another band I need to spend time on as this one is fantastic.    Maybe I’m getting old but most of my favorite albums from this year have been at the poppier end .  Top 10 for me for sure. 
    • Much better. Thanks for posting this.
    • Highly anticipated release from one of my all time favorite bands!  I'm quite positive that their previous 2 releases will end in my all time favorite top 30. 
    • Still no official release date (sigh), but last weekend Kane Roberts posted on FB "New CD 100% mastered and ready to drop soon"
    • Track list revealed. From melodicrock.com: BRETT WALKER ‘Last Parade’ is an historic release - a box set of the late, great singer/songwriter’s career – with a difference. Almost the entire box set is unreleased, never before heard material. The tracks you do recognise are mostly in a different form. Ballad versions or rockers; instrumental pieces; alt-mixes; heavier guitar versions…you name it! For the rest of the unreleased tracks, this set is a veritable treasure trove of classic BRETT WALKER, representing his various career paths – AOR, melodic rock, midwestern, acoustic – anthems, ballads and those classic singalong songs only Brett Walker can do. For the first time, MRR is excited to announce the details of BRETT WALKER ‘Last Parade’ Box Set. ‘Last Parade’ will be a 6-disc box set (exact design TBC). The set will be priced at $99(includes shipping, airmail worldwide) ‘Last Parade’ is strictly limited to 500 units worldwide and will not be re-pressed. Pre-orders will be available THIS WEEK. Those that do pre-order will receive a download of another full disc worth of audio that couldn’t fit or wasn’t quite suitable due to audio quality.   BRETT WALKER – “Last Parade” BOX SET TRACK LISTING   The Early Demos (Quality Varies Throughout)   01.

    • Heir Apparent is returning with a long awaited third album called The View From Below which is scheduled to be released October 15th, via No Remorse Records.  The reunited band features three original members.  Promo track "The Door" is available now. https://www.heirapparent.com/ https://www.noremorse.gr/product_info.php?products_id=68064&___p=PRE-ORDER%3A HEIR APPARENT - THE VIEW FROM BELOW CD (NEW) HEIR APPARENT was founded in 1984 by guitarist Terry Gorle. During 1985, the band signed with Black Dragon Records and completed the first album "Graceful Inheritance" which was released in January of 1986. Up to this day, their debut album is considered as one of the best US metal albums of the 80s. After highs and lows in the music industry and line-up changes, finally Heir Apparent was signed by Metal Blade Records and released their second album "One Small Voice" (1989), one of the best progressive metal albums of all times. Although the future looked bright, tensions surrounding commitment and finances within the band caused a rift that split the group. In 2000, Heir Apparent reunited at the Wacken Open Air festival in Germany, and in the next years more shows followed with different line-ups for festivals like Keep It True, Metal Assault and Up The Hammers.
      The current line-up consists of original members Terry Gorle (guitar), Derek Peace (bass), Ray Schwartz (drummer) with the addition of Op Sakiya (keyboards) and the great new singer Will Shaw. 
      "The View From Below" was produced by Tom Hall in cooperation with the band. Tom Hall had produced the previous Heir Apparent releases and also worked with Queensrÿche on their "Queensrÿche" EP (1983) and "Empire" (1990), among others.

      Track list:
      1. Man in the Sky
      2. The Door
      3. Here We Aren't
      4. Synthetic Lies
      5. Savior
      6. Further and Farther
      7. The Road to Palestine
      8. Insomnia
