One Stop Shopping For The DIY Crowd

Digital Music News reports briefly on the growing profile of companies offering DIY web solutions to bands and artists building or expanding their digs online.

These sites simply bundle existing hosting and ecommerce offerings into a one-stop service centered around hosting, marketing, distributing and selling music independently online, which can otherwise be done in more complicated ways (though this latter option is more DIY, really, if we’re keeping score…). I haven’t reviewed these services extensively yet, but it would appear that Broadjam, Musicane and Indiestore are targeting that grayish area between the technophilic and technophobic musician: bands who know how to optimize a jpg for the web, but simply do not have the time to validate their CSS or buy their own SSL certificate. I think.
