A trending report is an unofficial weekly sales update about your release. ReverbNation is proud to offer these reports to all of our digital distribution customers free of charge. Other digital distributors charge for this feature, sometimes as much at $3 per report. This adds up to over $150 per year.

This is what the trending reports look like. It tells you whether you sold a whole album or a track, from which album the sale came, and which store it came from. This is a sample report from Durham, NC, band Red Collar:
The trending reports are available in your ReverbNation control room under “Distribution” >> “Trending Report.” They’re there to give you an idea of how much music you sell each week, but they’re not official sales data. Discrepancies can sometimes occur between the weekly trending reports and the official sales reports (which are released 60 days after the end of each month), such as if someone gets a return on a sale.
You can also export your reports to a CSV file that you can open in Microsoft Excel, or any other spreadsheet application that you might have. All you have to do is click the “Export” button at the bottom of the trending report, and the data is automatically exported for you.
