Why Online Merch Stores Are No Longer Optional for Bands | How to Sell More Merch Online

It’s November 2020, and you haven’t played a show in over half a year.

Are you going to take advantage of this shift and start growing your online merch empire by promoting it on your social media, during your live streams, and to your email list?

Or, are you going to sit idly by thinking, “I don’t need to do this… It’s too much work”?

There’s a clear winner here, and it’s the artist who sells their merch online.
