WHAT ARE “BANDS ON A BUDGET’S” INDIECARDS?

IndieCards allows musicians to create and distribute download cards for fans to access digital content online.

The service offers several types of download cards, both physical and digital.

Digital IndieCards give you all the power of the IndieCards 2.0 platform minus the physical card. In as little as 24 hours you will have an excel and xml file of all of your unique download codes. You can send these codes out to fans and customers in an email newsletter or other ‘viral’ marketing campaign.

Use our optional “Simple Coupon Service” to easily & affordably print download coupons to insert into vinyl records and CDs so your fans can download a digital version of your release.
