In the new music industry, it’s become very important to diversify your revenue streams and not rely solely on traditional music sales.Your best fans also expect to have access to exclusive content; cool stuff that maybe shows another side of you, as an artist. And, maybe, they are willing to pay for it, because it’s exclusive and unique, and/or because they want support you.
So while we were building our new 2.0 system, it wasn’t surprising that many of our members asked us to add the ability to sell non-music downloads and other digital files through our platform.
Well, we listened, and our PRO members can now sell any type of digital file through our Store feature.
How Does it Work?
Very simple. We’ve added a new "file download" option when adding a product to our Store feature:
You simply upload a file, or many, add an image and a short description, then set the price you’d like to sell it for. You can sell single files, or a bundle of files. (If you want to bundle files with music, however, you can already do that with the “album” feature).
Immediately after purchase, the files will be securely available for download by your fans. And, like all other commerce features on Bandzoogle, we don't take any cut of your sales. (Over $10 million in zero-commision sales so far, and counting)
