Three Ways to Make Money When You Can't Play Live Shows

Can't perform live currently? There is still a chance to make income from your music online:

1. Create private concerts with your fans via social media!

Get closer to your fans by promoting an online concert - you could stream this live on Twitch and perform requests or covers in exchange for a small donation.

2. Push Your Merch!

Now is a great time to push any merch you have remaining from previous shows - why not create ‘Cozy Deals’ for your fans promoting your comfiest merch, or buy one, gift one free to friends! Offer exclusive bonus items for maximum reach - this doesn't have to cost money. You could send each fan who orders a band curated playlist to listen to!
