Big news last week from Bandzoogle: the company has acquired Sayvee, a website builder platform from Vancouver. Bandzoogle plans to absorb many of the features of Sayvee into their own web builder platform, and will be giving customers of Sayvee a free trial of the Bandzoogle service.
“We have been hard at work this year upgrading Bandzoogle’s core platform and features to make sure we meet our members’ expectations and help them navigate the heavily disrupted music landscape” said Bandzoogle CEO David Dufresne, in a press release. “We are excited about working with the Sayvee team because they created an intuitive way to design a beautiful and slick web presence, and because they have built a solid member base of serious and motivated artists that will fit in nicely with our member community.”
Bandzoogle and Sayvee are companies that are quite similar. Both provide easy website construction tools to artists, Bandzoogle focusing on musicians and bands, while Sayvee is a little more diverse; they advertise their services to graphic artists, photographers, painters, etc. along with musicians.
Along with adding Sayvee’s features and website templates to their own platform, Bandzoogle gains Sayvee’s entire user base, which is valuable beyond the dollars and cents that these users will generate in subscription fees; Bandzoogle will also have a large influx of new members to their community forums, which will facilitate better collaboration and communication amongst Bandzoogle users.
