Santa Some statistics on selling music online (17) RE: Some statistics on selling music online 30 Dec 08


"The Long Tail" is the low right hand side of the sales distribution. Items that sell well (not just music) are to the left, and the overall shape is very high to the left. Internet selling was anticipated to raise the right hand side of the curve - less popular items would gain in the proportion of sales (fatten the tail?). It hasn't. The massively popular items have continued to hold their share, the tail has remained long and thin.
