If you are selling a lot of your music in markets where you are getting some airplay, it means your song is reacting and labels will seek you out (if you even don’t want to be signed). Of course in the digital age, there are other resources these people look at, but a sale means you have a real fan while sometimes free downloads only mean casual listeners who may never buy anything from you.
