The problem

Our solution

Merch isn’t sold because that’s what artists and labels are good at or passionate about. It’s sold because fans expect merch from their artists and because it serves as an extra source of income. Consequently, artists and labels only do what’s necessary without exploring their potential.

Our solution: A professional team passionate about selling merch. We do nothing but think about how we can deliver better products to more fans.

Struggle to design

meaningful merchandise

Based on our interviews, fans would buy merchandise more frequently if artists had more creative designs to sell. However, boring designs, such as simple letterings or album covers fail to meet this demand. Designs should be representative of the artists’ music, their creativity, and style. Otherwise, it doesn’t connect to fans leading to a loss in sales.

Our solution: Designers who know the music scene, understand the need of fans, and have the creativity and expertise to design merch fans love.

The reputation of artists’ merchandise stores have severely suffered. Frustrating shopping experiences are frequent due to long processing & shipping times, inconsistent quality, high shipping costs and boring variety.

Our solution: A consistent, reliable and transparent merchandise service, which nurtures a positive brand image through focusing on a pleasurable shopping experience.

Missing

potential

Obviously your fans are your main target group. However, this approach is too shortsighted. Your target group also includes everyone, who relish your merchandise! They don’t (yet) have to be your fans, as long as they like your merch, it can significantly increase your sales.

Our solution: We go beyond targeting only your active fans. We want to embrace new target groups by selling on marketplaces such as Zalando, Amazon, Asos and more!

Now, let’s look at the problems of your fans representing your customer’s needs

The problems of your fans

The solution for your fans

Shopping from several artists requires finding each store, browsing all products, going through triple the number of checkout processes and paying three times as much shipping costs. Shopping should be simple and easy, but with this complexity, a lot of disturbances can affect the customers’ decision making. It can result in a compromise to buy from just one store instead, or even no purchase at all.

Our solution: One merchandise service selling for multiple artists, allowing simple and easy shopping from one collective store.

Dificult to

stay up-to-date

Staying up-to-date with new merch releases is nearly impossible because there are too many artists – all with their own merchandise store! Consequently, many fans miss out on buying new merch.

Our solution: One merchandise store that keeps fans updated about all artists of their liking.

The quality of merchandise stores varies. All it takes for customers is to regret their purchase with any shop, and it comes at the cost of an unavoidable bias towards other merch stores. Will these customers risk another frustrating experience buying from your store?

Our solution: A reliable online shop that always delivers reliable quality and ensures a positive shopping experience.

Ethical background?

Environment?

The ethical and environmental background of the clothing industry is a very controversial topic – and that is for a good reason! Where does your merch come from? Are you involved in exploiting third world countries, where people are literally dying on the streets? It’s well known that society is becoming increasingly aware of this, as well as the environmental background of products. However, most merch stores still manufacture under catastrophic conditions and leave customers in the dark about the background of their products.

Our solution: A brand that takes responsibility for its supply chain. We ensure our products have an ethical background and transparently communicate this to our customers.
