Bandcamp recently launched Bandcamp for Fans. This allows you, as a music consumer, to show off music you have purchased on a profile page.
You can connect with others, share your thoughts on albums and add music to a wishlist for future reference. Your avatar will show up on bands’ pages so others can see the bands you support. They will also be able to read your reviews which might influence them to make a purchase. (Reference our discussion on social proof.)
All of this is GREAT news for bands. Bandcamp was already a sweet way for discovering great new music but now they are showing us that their Jedi powers have yet to reach their full potential. What are they going to do next…?!
We are excited about Bandcamp for Fans. Continue reading to learn how to create your account.
If you have previously purchased music on Bandcamp, go to the Bandcamp for Fans website, scroll down and click create your account.
If you are an artist or band and already have a Bandcamp page for your music, you can easily create a fan page using your current login.
If you have NOT purchased music before, then you will have to discover something awesome and buy it…then repeat.
Bandcamp has a great discovery tool to help you find something new.
