Bandzoogle Artists Earn Over $20M In Online Music And Merch Sales

Bandzoogle, a website builder for bands and musicians, has announced that independent artists using their music e-commerce tools have sold over $20 million in music downloads, merchandise and tickets directly to fans.

Bandzoogle launched e-commerce tools in 2010 with features designed specifically for musicians. They allow members to easily add an online music store to their band website and manage their own sales. Artists who sell music and merch using Bandzoogle pay no commission and keep 100% of their sales.

"Bandzoogle empowers musicians to successfully manage their own careers, which includes helping them to make more money from their own hard work" said Bandzoogle founder Chris Vinson. "Hitting twenty million dollars in member sales is a milestone we're very proud of, because it went straight into the pockets of independent musicians."

The top 20 earning members each sold over $100,000 to-date from their websites. 80% of all sales were physical merchandise, including vinyl and CD. Digital album and single track downloads each accounted for just under 10%. Ticket sales, an e-commerce feature added to Bandzoogle in 2015, accounted for $200,000 of member earnings to-date.

Bandzoogle makes it easy for musicians to build a professional website and store for their music. Designed by a musician for the needs of musicians, Bandzoogle combines a simple drag+drop website editor with powerful e-commerce and promotional tools. Founded in 2003, Bandzoogle powers 25,000 band websites. Plans start at $10/month including a .com domain and friendly live support. Sign up for a 30-day free trial at bandzoogle.com.
