The biggest music platform Spotify has recently come up with an interesting new feature - it has opened merchandise sales for all artists and bands directly on their Spotify profile. Where else to showcase your beautiful designs than right where your fans listen to you every day?
But there's a catch. You need to have your eshop based on Shopify, which is a time-consuming and costly project. That's why we decided to set up our own online store - Merch Zone!
We have drastically reduced the cost of running an eshop, all the technological and marketing background is already set up for you and you also get the advantage of placing your merch on your Spotify profile, integration with Google, Facebook or Instagram. According to Spotify's plan, it is clear that merchandise is where they will focus more in the near future.
How does it work?
We currently offer two options for our partners. The first is ideal for smaller bands and artists who don't want to invest large sums in printing dozens or hundreds of products and then storing them in their living rooms or rehearsal rooms for the next few years.
In this case, all you need is a graphic design - e.g. a company logo, artwork for the latest album or single. We'll put that design on one of our products (t-shirts, sweatshirts, posters and soon lots of other products) and you're all set. When someone orders the merch, it goes straight from the factory to your fan and they have it in their hands in a few days. No risk, no work, but speed and high quality! We can even help with professional photos of the models who will be promoting your merch.
What if I already have merch?
We have a solution for you too! If you store your own merch and perhaps run your own e-shop, it is unnecessary to deal with any additional production method.
We simply place your goods on our e-shop and in case of an order, you handle it directly (this is how Amazon works, for example). You get the option to have your merch on other sales channels including Spotify and virtually nothing changes for you.
Where will my merch be placed?
Fans can find your merch in the following places:
· our eshop www.merch-zone.eu
· web and social media of Digiton Agency
· Facebook and Instagram of Merch Zone (can also be placed on your social media)
· Spotify artists profile
In the future we plan to expand our sales channels (Amazon, Etsy and others).
What else can you do?
In addition to the above, we can help you with the following:
· Graphic work - from graphic design to various modifications
· Photo material - you don't have to deal with a photographer or models
· Marketing - Google, Facebook or TikTok ads
