make your self seem bigger than what your really are. People usually buy cds, because of word of mouth, if they believe your legit then they will buy it. If your approach in a person in a proffesional way, and don't look desperate they will buy it. Make sure that when your trying to sell cds, that you look clean that you don't look broke. Like this is not a part-time thing, but your serious. Have nice-looking clothes, fresh shoes, and make sure that you talk confidently and not scared of others reaction let them know that you know that you know your good. Also, maybe come up with a saying, a saying that you will say to any person your trying to sell to EVERYTIME. If your selling it for 5 dollars and they don't have 5 dollars, say i'll drop it down to 3. But if they have under three, say ayo, let me do you a favor..i'll let you have this one, makes them seem special. Say, check my website or w/e..tell them some of your accomplishments. Like them other people said, have posters, t-shirts, anything that a fan could have to show others is good. Sell at barbershops, (oh, when sellin at a barbershop come up to the person that cuts the hair, and say for every cd you sell you get half or w/e, then you come back in a week or so) They do it all the time, where i live but, mostly its bootleg movies, but you can do it with your album, also at malls, k-mart, wal-mart but ask the manager persmmision, iono I think its illegal without a liscence. have other people sell your cd say, for every cd you sell you get a dollar. Get people from every school, if you know any truck drivers give it to them, send it to people in other states tell them to sell it...have ur website on the cd..if they become a fan they would want to know more about you...If you appear that your someone to look out for, people would be like owe man, he might become famous. Maybe have a selling group couple of your friends with backpacks, and you sell it together, i think its better to sell in a group..then solo.
