The need to satisfy
Young music artists are very good singers. They are not that good at drawing the graphics for the cover of their new album. So, here is where your business comes into place.
How to satisfy that need
Music artists can find graphic designers and pre-made templates for album covers on your web-platform. They can then pick a template and ask the designer to modify the text on it and buy.
The business model
Designers join your platform for free and start posting their templates. Music artists make an account on site, pick a template and contact the designer through a form. If the designer agrees to do the job (he might be busy and unable to complete it sometimes) then he will ask the musician to pay the fee on the website. The web-platform gets a commission and the designer the rest of the money.
Logistics and other stuff
You will need the web-platform, you can find designers on social media groups and ask them to join the site to make some money. Then you will need to get your head into marketing and spread the word about this new website.
How much money do you need to start this business idea
- the web platform: $3000-$5000 depending on how complex you need it
- time: a lot
- marketing: $200-$300/month in the beginning
- creating a company: check that with your local authorities
There are not that much dedicated websites for this, here is an alternative, you can use fiver if you’re an artist looking to get an album cover. We would not recommend it, though.
Good luck! If you need help and want that web platform or maybe something else give us a shout here. As always, if you have questions about the article please feel free to comment bellow, we will answer.
