Wix Turns Up the Volume on Music Websites
Wix is looking to offer more solutions created for specific verticals, and the company’s latest offering targets the music industry.
The offering, dubbed WixMusic, enables musicians to introduce, share and sell their music directly from their websites. In fact, WixMusic includes an advanced music player, commission free sales, an easy to use management system, tracking and metrics as well as a range of specifically designed music website templates. Moreover, WixMusic is optimized for mobile devices to ensure that music sharing and purchasing can happen across devices.
WixMusic aims to keep out the middleman, enabling musicians to keep all of their profits rather than pay commissions through third parties. Moreover, the solution is customizable and can be used to drive awareness and engagement.
“WixMusic is the latest verticalized solution added to the Wix platform, further executing our goal to provide comprehensive ways for anyone, including musicians, to build, manage and grow a business or brand online,” said Avishai Abrahami, Wix co-founder and CEO. “Musicians want to focus on their music, not code websites, or piece together the tools they need. That’s why we created a complete and commission-free solution, letting this unique professional audience create an online presence that encapsulates their sound.”
WixMusic is currently in beta and gradually being rolled out to all Wix users.
