Reverb.com Rolls Out Reverb Sites

Reverb.com has introduced Reverb Sites, a service that helps sellers promote their music business online. Reverb Sites lets sellers create their own website which syncs to their Reverb.com shop.

"As musicians who buy and sell gear ourselves, we understand that not everyone has the time, money or expertise to create and manage their own music gear website," said Dan Melnick, Reverb.com's chief operating officer. "As a tech and e-commerce company, we also understand that a website is an invaluable tool when it comes to marketing your music gear business online. Reverb Sites was created so any seller in our marketplace can showcase their gear through a quality website and effortlessly manage that website from the same dashboard they manage their Reverb.com shop through."

With Reverb Sites, inventory from a seller's existing Reverb.com shop is automatically synced, and all orders are managed through one dashboard. When an item sells in either location, it's marked as "sold." To build and strengthen their brand, sellers can choose from several professionally designed, mobile-optimized website themes. Once a template is selected, the Reverb Sites platform auto-populates information from the user's Reverb.com shop and allows the seller to further customize the site with logos, pages, photos, videos and more.

"At the end of the day, our sellers want to spend their time selling gear and making money — not worrying about their website," said David Kalt, founder and CEO of Reverb.com. "With the introduction of Reverb Sites, we're giving sellers all of the tools they need to showcase their products on a customized, fully-functioning website that they can manage by simply running their Reverb.com shop as usual. Plus, sellers will be able to rest easy knowing that their website is supported by the Reverb.com tech team."

The Beta version of Reverb Sites is currently available, and the service is scheduled to launch in spring 2017.
