Looking for a quick and simple way to offer your fans some merch (or even make your own custom swag)? No problem. I have an simple solution for you to get a band merch store up and running fast. Check it out.
Here is a Musicgoat store that I whipped up a in about an hour using a site called Zazzle.
I went with Zazzle because they seem to cater to musicians and artistic types plus – and this is a big plus – they give you a commission on sales for stuff sold outside of your store. Meaning, should one of your fans decide to look around and find other stuff and buy it, you get a little somethin, somethin yourself. Cool huh?
Plus, they have a ton of cool stuff to slap your band logo on. Besides the obvious stuff like T-shirts, buttons and posters they also have cool stuff like skateboards, shoes and iPod cases.
I Know What You're Thinking…
For the record, I am sure there are better deals out there if you are looking to buy merch in bulk for your shows or for a tour BUT if you are looking for a very quick way to throw up a merch store without worrying about building your own online store where you have to do the shipping and handling, this is the way to go.
Go check out Zazzle now.
