ReverbNation teams up with Audiolife to launch the Reverb Store

storeNew York, NY (February 24, 2010) – ReverbNation, the leading marketing platform for more than 550,000 artists, labels, managers and venues, has partnered with Audiolife, the leader in direct-to-fan e-commerce, to announce the official launch of the Reverb Store following a private trial period involving more than 15,000 bands.

“Artists are constantly asking me how they can monetize all of their online promotional activities,” said Ariel Hyatt, CEO of CyberPR and music marketing maven. “The Reverb Store is the answer!”

The Reverb Store is the first and only e-commerce solution that empowers musicians to sell t-shirts, hoodies, hats, CDs, downloads and ringtones directly to their fans on Facebook and other social networks, as well as their blog and homepage, without any out-of-pocket expense for setup, store usage, or inventory.

“Any artist can connect with fans to sell music and products in less than two minutes using the Reverb Store,” said Michael Doernberg, CEO of ReverbNation. “Reverb Store integrates seamlessly inside Facebook with two applications for artists: the leading all-in-one promotional application for bands called ‘MyBand,’ and the stand-alone store application for musician pages called ‘Store.’”

Every product purchased through the Reverb Store is produced on-demand and delivered directly to the fan, via the Audiolife direct-to-fan e-commerce engine. Artists simply set the final price above the cost and keep 100% of the profits from every sale. In addition, artists can use the Reverb Store to order larger quantities of their CDs and merchandise at highly discounted wholesale prices for sale at shows.

“The Reverb Store was designed with one thing in mind: to create a streamlined tool for the artist that would require no financial investment but would afford the musician, band, or label a way to monetize their products through leveraging current technologies,” said Brandon Hance, founder and CEO of Audiolife.

Many bands have taken advantage of the Reverb Store to create multiple versions of t-shirts, analyze fans’ merchandise preferences and order in bulk for tours. Some bands have also used the direct-to-fan eCommerce model to integrate fundraising into their music.

“We recently used the Reverb Store to quickly sell our charity song, ‘We Are Samoa,’ and related merchandise to benefit the Samoa Tsunami relief effort,” said artist, Samoa ONSTSU. “The Reverb Store is an invaluable tool for the independent artist.”

What are the possibilities of selling this in the store and if so how do we do so? A video showing how to sell CD’s would be informative. More info please. Thank you.

    Anybody else having trouble uploading their album artwork? It just keeps processing and never finishes and I’ve waited a looong time. Audio uploaded just fine.

  • Trissy - March 1, 2010 reply

    This is great but I have a stock of t-shirts already printed in my home. Is there any way to add these to my store?

  • mr. stinky pants - March 2, 2010 reply

    hey hey, i find it hard to believe you can design and sell t-shirts just like that, because don’t you have to buy the manufacturing stuff to make the shirts? just doesn’t add up to a profitable concept…

  • Jed - March 2, 2010 reply

    @Mr. Stinky Pants,
    We work with partners that have digital printing presses- i.e. they are setup to print one-off t-shirts.

  • Dialashop - March 4, 2010 reply

    Its great Reverbnation is helping out musicians. Musos can spend alot of time marketing themselves. Yes its hard enough for people to find you and its great there is help. I like the idea of being able to sell your own merchandise.
