Tips For Turning CD Duplication Into A Profitable Side Business

by Mike Waters

CD duplication has arrived in a big way. Teenagers are using cd burners to rip mp3s from their favorite artists. Companies use cd duplication to make backups of their software and documents. Federal agencies are scrambling to define and interpret intellectual piracy and copyright laws as they relate to cd duplication and the music industry. The movie industry is seeking how they can profit from cd and DVD duplication. With so much attention focused on cd duplication, now is the perfect time to turn your home cd duplication hardware into a very profitable side business.

Believe it or not, you probably already have everything you need to get your cd duplication service business off the ground. All you need is a computer, a cd burner, cd duplication software, and a few blank cdrs to get started. It is really that easy.

If you don’t possess a computer or a cd burner, don’t worry. Purchasing a cd duplication device is very affordable. The cost of standalone cd duplication hardware has reduced significantly in recent years. Practically all home computers come with internal cd duplication hardware (cd burners) and some sort of cd duplication software as well. CD duplication media such as blank cd-r and cd-rw are extremely low priced and can be purchased at practically every major retail store.

Your market for your cd duplication company is going to be local bands and musicians as well as small businesses. Local up and coming bands/musicians are often too busy perfecting their sound to be tied down with the tedious task of duplicating cds for their gigs. They also don’t have the money to order cds from the big cd duplication companies.

Likewise, small businesses are almost always unable to financially justify having a technical/computer staff to handle the backup and data storage aspects of their company. All too often, they end up forgoing needed data backups simply because they forget to do it.

However, you can solve these marketplace gaps, provide a needed service, and earn some nice side profit legally by starting your own cd duplication service that caters to these clients. By having a reasonable price, quick rate of delivery, and a quality product, you will undoubtedly get many repeat customers and plenty “word of mouth” buyers.

So what are you waiting for? Start your cd duplication service company today!
