In this session, artists, labels and managers will learn new ways to reach fans through direct-to-consumer channels like Shopify. We’ll discuss how technologies like print-on-demand and direct music distribution give artists freedom to easily test ideas on tight budgets or with limited quantities. By selling direct-to-fan, artists are able to gain valuable insights into their audiences, create lasting relationships, and - most importantly - keep a larger portion of their revenues.
