Koji has 200+ link in bio mini apps, many of which offer easy ways for musicians to make money. Here are the 5 mini apps you should try adding first:
Give your fans the ability to show you how much your music means to them by adding a Love Jar mini app. With most music being consumed on subscription based apps like Spotify and Apple Music, music lovers have the sense that music is “free” – they can listen to your music as many times as they wish without needing to necessarily purchase it or pay per listen.
Love Jar offers your fans the opportunity to send you ‘love’ – in the form of a cash tip – along with a private message where they can share how much they appreciate your music, your visuals, and you.
And don’t be afraid to remind fans that you have a Love Jar – the most successful Koji musicians shout out their Love Jar on social media quite often, and always publicly thank individual fans for tipping.
Local gig? We’ve got you covered – your Love Jar app (and your Koji profile) comes with it’s own handy QR code – just print it out and display it so the audience can show you ‘love’ right at the venue.
Pro-Tip: have your superfans post your music AND Love Jar links everywhere they can – the more Love Jars you have out there in the world..the more opportunities you’ll have to receive tips.
Sell A Service
Our Sell a Service mini app lets you list, price, and fulfill any music service you want to provide. By including this app in your Link in Bio, your clients and fans have a single place to send request: no more checking multiple social accounts, websites, or platforms trying to keep track of requests.
Here are a few ideas of music services you can list on Sell A Service:
- Production & beat-making — offer custom production work for vocalists
- Mixing — accept multi-tracks from around the world and send back final mixes
- Rap Features — sell 8 bars, 16 bars, dj intros and more
- Overdubs — offer to lay down guitar, drums, or any other instrumental tracks for others to add to their productions
- Vocal Demos — offer to record lead vocals or background arrangements for songwriter demos
- Sound-alikes — charge to re-make popular songs for synch opportunities or for producers to avoid sample licensing

Pro-Tip: bundle your service offers in order to provide discounts and boost sales. For example, if you are offering to record a guitar solo for $200 per song, you should ALSO create a bundle offering 2 songs for $375, etc.
Locked Audio allows you to sell audio files directly on your link in bio. You can choose to upload a single audio file (.mp3 or .wav) or a whole collection/playlist of audio files.

Pro-Tip: just like with any Koji mini app, you’re not restricted to using only one Locked Audio mini app on your profile at a time. Feel free to separate your offerings into multiple instances of Locked Audio. This will allow you to better organize and name each mini app link, which will increase conversions as fans get a better idea of exactly what you’re selling.
Sell Physical Products
Merch has long been a staple revenue source for musicians. However large or small your fanbase may be, it’s never too early to think about offering custom merchandise. Koji’s Sell Physical Products mini app makes it easy to sell non-sized items directly on your link in bio.
Here are some examples of non-sized merch for musicians:
Sell personalized videos directly to your fans with ShoutOut. With this powerful app you can develop deep connections with fans, spread joy, and turn fans into superfans for life with just a simple video – all while generating additional income.
Fans pay to send you a video request, after which you respond by recording a custom video just for them. Once you fulfill the request they get to enjoy the video for themselves, or record a reaction video which they can send to others.
While there are an unlimited number of possibilities of what types of video content you can record for your fans, here are some thought starters:
- Happy Birthday messages
- VoiceMail messages
- Answers to their questions
- Accapella singing
- Words of encouragement
Pro-Tip: make sure to record an intro video inside of your ShoutOut mini app as opposed to selecting an image. Use this video to clearly explain what you are offering, why communicating in this way is special to you, and how grateful you are for those fans who request videos from you.
Also, remember to call out fans who order videos from you. Thank them on social media (using Insta story, Twitter posts, etc.), then take that opportunity to remind your entire fanbase that you offer ShoutOuts and point them back to your link in bio.
