With traditional methods of merchandise distribution going the way of the dinosaur, it can be challenging for an indie band to get their products out to the people who want them most. Unless you know someone at one of the big distro sites, you’re stuck selling shirts and CDs out of the back of your van. Thankfully for those of us without connections, Limited Run offers a more direct way to get your music and merchandise to fans who otherwise wouldn’t have access.
Limited Run allows musicians to set up their own online shops. These shops carry anything from digital or physical copies of albums to shirts to stickers. Setting up a site on their platform takes little time and lets you get your products out sooner rather than later. On top of that, they offer Sound Cloud integration, which lets you stream your full album, a few tracks, or just the single. The best part of their system is that they don’t charge you fees unless you sell something, so you have the freedom to put your product out there without having to worry about paying for something no one is using.
Isn’t that better than trying to sell your merch out of the back of your van?
