Let’s be frank; the pandemic has permanently altered the live entertainment industry. As people are wary of leaving their homes, entertainers and the venues that host them are suffering economically. According to a survey, 90% of independent venues may shutter their doors. With the burden of uncertainty looming over artists and venue owners’ heads, the question is how can you make a living? The solution is turning your living room into a stage.
I suspect that virtual events will not be going anywhere after the pandemic is over. With the advancement of technology, anyone can set up a show in the palm of their hand. Seems simple enough, but the question you may be asking yourself is how do you sell tickets to a virtual show?
There are so many platforms and programs that can help you do just that, but my focus will be set on two: Eventbrite and Zoom.
On my blog I cover briefly how to do so on Facebook and Google. Eventbrite has some built in marketing tools that are great for reminding your fans when the show will take place. Make sure that after the show you export your ticket buyer sheet to grow your mailing list. So there you have it! Now go ahead and break a digital leg.
NOTE : As you may have noticed, I will be hosting my first webinar: Band to Brand: A DIY Marketing Workshop. In this workshop, I will be teaching aspiring artists and entertainers the foundations of marketing your brand. I’ll be going over goal setting, strategy 101, content creation and a brief outline on advertising. Availability is limited, so make sure to register before it fills up!
