Bandsintown’s free Best Practices Guide helps artists successfully return to performing live
With in-person concerts rapidly returning, Bandsintown For Artists has published a Best Practice’s Guide to using its extensive toolkit to attract new fans, sell tickets, and more.
In addition to helping 23,000 artists market more than 87,000 live streams during the pandemic at no cost and producing more than 1100 of their own on Bandsintown PLUS and LIVE, the Bandsintown team has been hard at work improving its platform to help connect more artists and fans through live music.
Their new free Best Practices Guide explains it all well, but here are my three favorite Bandsintown For Artists free upgrades and new tools:
- Every time artists post a message, fans will not only be notified, they’ll also receive the entire message directly in their inbox. There are also great looking new message templates.
- In addition to the hugely popular Bandsintown Events Widget that brings tour dates and links onto any website, there’s also a free Events Promotion Page – an automatically generated web page that can be shared across the net and in printed materials that adds the option of adding a Facebook pixel to retarget specific audiences.
- A Request A Show button within the Events Widget and Events Promotion Page empowers fans to let artists know where they want them to perform and offers insightful data to support tour planning decisions.
