Leverage Vinyl's Resurgence to Boost Your Music Sales
Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably noticed vinyl sales skyrocketing - with 17 years of growth and no signs of stopping. But why?
The Reason for Vinyl's Return
Many assume the return of vinyl is driven purely by nostalgia. But as Rob Abelow recently tweeted, there's more to this trend than fans just enjoying the format.
Surprisingly, about 50% of buyers don't even own a turntable. These fans are seeking a more ritualistic, physical connection with their favorite music and artists. Simply put: vinyl allows that tangible relationship that streaming can't provide.
Your Next Move? Lean In With Vinyl Bundles
With vinyl’s comeback, now is the perfect time to offer vinyl bundles in your online music store. Here’s why vinyl bundles work:
- Different price points appeal to every fan's budget
- Exclusive colored vinyl or limited editions entice collectors
- Bundling vinyl ups your average order value and revenue
And in case you missed it: physical album + merch combos (aka Fan Packs) are now eligible for reporting!
