Personalised Merchandise for Singers: Personalised merchandise is used for singers to make extra money at their tours, shows and gigs. It’s also a way of promoting yourself and spreading the word through your fans. Here’s some personalised merchandise we think your fans may like. But what do you sell and how should you sell it?
What Personalised Merchandise Should You Sell?
The most popular forms of personalised merchandise are t-shirts! There’s something about wearing an act's t-shirt that people love. Make sure when designing your t-shirts that you keep them engaging and interesting so they are desirable. If you want to keep costs down consider having it with fewer colours, having it full colour will be more expensive.
Synchronise Your Personalised Merchandise!
For the most effective personalised merchandise it’s wise to use the same display pictures, backgrounds and names! Using the same imagery as across all your social media sites strengthens your brand as an artist. It also looks more professional and official.
For those who don’t want to buy t-shirts, why not sell them CDs, at least that way they can continue to listen to your music. A few items that are likely to be popular are badges, key rings, posters, pens and stickers. These are good because they cost very little and you can sell them for a small cost, making them one of the cheapest personalised merchandise ideas.
Selling Personalised Merchandise Online
Personalised merchandise is a brilliant way of maintaining engagement with your fans, especially those fans that aren’t necessarily local to you. Selling personalised merchandise online means that even those fans that can’t make it to your shows can still have the opportunity to have a souvenir of the event without attending.
Selling personalised merchandise online isn’t as hard as it seems, as there are website whose main purpose is provide other businesses with a platform to sell their products. An example of this is www.shopify.co.uk, a website where you sign up and then are able to build your store. They take credit card payments, therefore not restricting anyone wishing to buy your personalised merchandise.
Selling Personalised Merchandise After Shows
The most obvious way to sell your personalised merchandise is through your shows. You’ve already got fans there that have paid to see you perform, so make sure you take this opportunity to make some money. Fans bring friends, so there’s more opportunity to make money after the show from people who may have not heard you before.
