Selling To Your Fans On A Global Scale
Why Is Selling To Your Fans Hard?
You're a musician/artist and ready to launch a tour, or maybe put out a single, or shift some merchandise. You have a lot of options at this stage - all of which means you'll sign up to different vendors and systems and inevitably create different accounts pushing your fans to those different websites too - this can be pretty confusing and frustrate not only you but your fans too - you might lose a sale.
So how do you get around that? Is there a way to connect with your fans in one straight-forward way? If you have a show, or product ready to sell to the masses - or even a few people we think the guys at Music Glue could help with that. No - this isn't a sponsored post, we just want to bring genuine value to the growing community of young artists and song writers.
Music Glue is a platform that allows you to sell your music, tickets and even experiences - such as a Skype call to those that are interested in your work and getting involved with your journey.
We spoke with Joe from Music Glue for The Reload Podcast to find out more about what they do. In our talk, Joe explains that music glue is a free to use online marketing and e-commerce platform - which allows artists to connect directly to their fans (wherever in the world they are) and help maintain a relationship with them too. Music Glue puts all of your 'products' in one place - this means fans can reach your content directly and quickly without having to sign up to different websites and platforms. This is great because it means you can be from a small village in the UK but still sell your album around the world - and merchandise too.
On top of that Music Glue also gives you access to the customers email meaning you can nurture a relationship with them. What's more is that all of this is for free.
There are no sign up fees with Music Glue nor any up front payments, however they do take 10% of the overall sale price meaning you can get your products up on the website without any restriction. Music Glue allows artists and fans to proceed with a smooth transaction as they cover all the back-end nitty gritty.
Despite working with bigger more established artists such as Mumford & Sons, Gabrielle Aplin, Metallica and Devlin Music Glue are open to all - from chart-breakers to the bedroom artist just starting out.
Watch our conversation with Joe from Music Glue below to learn more about what they do and how it might benefit you as an independent artist looking to connect more with your fans.
If it's worked for thousands of musicians in the past it's worth taking a look.
