How can you gain band notoriety in a profitable fashion? Due to COVID-19 the music industry has now turned completely away from point-of-purchase setups. A vast majority of band merch has historically been purchased from fans at the live events, so what now?!

Social media is the name of the game now more than ever before: Artists are flocking to video streaming platforms to keep their fans engaged. They ask for donations to either a musician’s relief fund or directly to themselves via GoFundMe, Venmo, or other avenues.
More and more of these types of events each day and the issue we will see is:
With this process, your band will gain more excitement around the event. In a few months, your video performances will be tough to get people’s attention. You’ll want to keep the people supporting you with branded merch buys, not just payments to your Venmo page.
At MARCO Ideas Unlimited, we can help your Band get creative so you get the most return on your investment and stay fresh amongst your industry peers.
