It’s been over a year since we launched our gigs marketplace and I’m proud to say that the response from artists and venues has been overwhelmingly positive. We’ve taken giant strides toward our goal of revolutionizing live music booking and bringing more live music to fans everywhere. Gigmor has become the largest and fastest-growing live music marketplace in the US and we’re thrilled to be working with nationally-known venues like The Mint, Piano’s, Herman’s Hideaway, the Canyon Club and many others. (500 of them to be exact.) We just posted our 1,000th gig and growth is accelerating. I’m super proud of the Gigmor team who have worked tirelessly to make this happen.
Today we’re taking another step in our evolution by launching 3 subscription plans for artists: Basic, Premium & Pro.
What Does This Mean for Artists?
The Basic plan is free and designed for members who want an online profile that they can send to venues, fans or industry pros. Members need to upgrade to one of the two subscription plans in order to apply to gigs listed on the site. Until October 31, we’re offering a one-time discount of 50% off our two annual plans: $50/year for the Premium plan (5 gig applications/month) and $100/year for the Pro plan (unlimited applications). Otherwise the plans are $9.99/month or $19.99/month. Needless to say, one booked gig and the subscription pays for itself.
For over a year we’ve bent over backward to keep Gigmor free so we could prove that we offer a superior solution to the live music industry without any economic barriers. But as we grow, it’s time to find a monetization strategy that’s a win/win for us and our members. Implementing subscriptions will help us grow our team so we can deliver more high-quality gigs and add more venue partners and independent musicians. It’ll also help us make faster progress on our every-growing product to-do list.
