Digital sales continue to pass CD sales

Digital sales continues to do better and better every year. CD sales are still there, but are on a continued decline. The question for every independent artist is should they just release their albums digital only and not waste the time and money on CD manufacturing? The good part about all this is that music is selling in general, whether it be downloads or CD. In my opinion, indie artists should focus mainly on digital download sales. This is the future. Of course you will still need a short run of physical CD's for radio, press, and other promotional outlets that require them. It may also be smart to get some made up for sale at your performances. Just be prepared, digital will take over eventually.
Fans really like buying digital singles off their favorite artists album. According to Nielson Soundscan, singles sales do a solid jump last year. Also, with cars coming equipped with hard drives now, it makes it more appealing to store a digital album collection in your car.
