You have been a coach for a while or you are new, and you would LOVE to have that extra credibility that naturally arises from having your own CD products to give away or to sell, or to offer as part of your coaching program.
When you are giving away music for free it would be wise to find a cheap audio cheap cd duplication and printing service when manufacturing the discs, but one must not compromise the quality of the appearance of the disc in the process. When people first pick up your CD, the first thing that will make an impression on them is the way your CD looks. Money should not be the only factor that concerns you when it comes to your music.
Blank CDs such as the CD-R, CD-RW, and the Mini CD-R all come in various capacities. The smaller mini CD-R can only hold up to 210 MB which can only hold a few audio files but will work perfectly for data files. Both the CD-R and the CD-RW capacity range from 650 to 800 MB which means that you can burn audio files and even movie files.
Now, back to those customers…who should you go after. Find out what local bands are in the area. Where? Check MySpace or Facebook. If you’re attending school or college (or have a friend or relative who is), ask around there. Bands are looking for someone quick and easy to get their music mass produced. They maybe can’t afford a professional company, but you might be just what they’re looking for. Another target is a small business. You’d think someone in the company would handle it, wouldn’t you? But you’d be surprised at the number of companies who don’t have the time or computer knowledge to handle their own data backup. Usually when that’s the case, they simply decide to do without the backup. As we both know, that’s a bad idea!

The milieu where the process of glass mastering is done needs to be the cleanest and the highest quality. The room or place is a “Class 100”, 12 times cleaner and neater than an operating theater. The room does not allow more than 100 particles for every cubic foot of air. This is because the main entities that affect the glass master’s quality are smoke, dust, and pollen. Small, but they can cause potential damaged to your master.
