An introduction to how and why you can have a direct relationship with your fans with Joe Vesayaporn from Music Glue

Music Glue is a Direct to Fan platform used by over 25,000 artists worldwide to sell tickets, music, merchandise, experiences and more, direct to their audience from one online store.

Originally founded in 2007 by artists for artists, Music Glue has created an artist-centric solution to the global music industry that ensures more money goes back into the pockets of the music creators; empowering artists to take control, own their data and sell anything, to anyone, anywhere, in any currency, any language and via any device. Artists no longer need to redirect their fans to third party websites to complete a transaction; all sales and fulfilment can be controlled by the artists themselves, via their Music Glue profile. It is free to design, set up and run a profile. Music Glue only takes a 10% commission on sales, so they don’t make money until the artist makes money. Music Glue is global, with offices in London (HQ), New York and Sydney and more to open in the near future.
