How To Get More People Out To Your Shows.

If you're a musician, the ultimate goal is to get as many people as possible out to your concerts. After all, that's how you make money and build a fan base. But getting people out to your concert can be tough - especially if you're starting from scratch. So how do you go about doing it? Well, I'm here to share with you some tips that should help.

Social Media, Duh.

When it comes to getting people out to your shows, the old saying still applies: it’s all about who you know. But in today’s world, “who you know” has been replaced by “who you’re connected with.” There's no denying that social media is a powerful tool. With the right strategy, you can reach millions of people with just a few clicks. If you're looking to generate interest in your upcoming show, a social media campaign is the way to go. But where do you start? First, you need to identify your target audience. Who are you trying to reach? Once you know who you're talking to, you can craft messages that will resonate with them. Next, it's time to choose the platform (or platforms) that will best help you reach your audience. Facebook and Twitter are both great options for promoting a show, but Instagram and Snapchat can also be effective. Then, it's all about creating content that will get people talking. Share sneak peeks of the set,Behind-the-scenes photos, or even promotional materials like posters and postcards. And don't forget to include a call to action! Tell your followers when and where they can see your show. With a little effort, you'll be well on your way to generating interest in your upcoming production.

Don't Stop There, Build a Website

No matter how big or small your band is, having a website is essential in today's music landscape. Having a direct way to reach your fans allows you to speak to them without distractions, and also helps you look more professional. Plus, potential new fans who stumble upon your website will be able to learn all about you and your music. So if you don't have a website yet, what are you waiting for? Get started today! And make sure that once you do have a website, you keep it up-to-date and easy to navigate. You want potential attendees to have the best possible experience when they visit your site. So put your best foot forward and make sure your band has a strong online presence!


As a local band, one of the best ways to promote your upcoming shows is by printing out flyers and posting them in key locations around town. Make sure to target locations that are frequented by your target audience. For example, if you're a rock band, post flyers at music stores and guitar shops. If you're a folk band, post flyers at coffee shops and bookstores. And if you're an indie band, post flyers at record stores and vintage clothing shops.

Send Flyers to the Promoter.

Another great way to promote your shows is by sending the venue a flyer ahead of time so they can hang it up and promote it to people at other shows. This is a great way to reach new potential fans who might not otherwise know about your band. Plus, it's always nice to get some extra promotion from the venue itself!

FREE Is Every Fans Favorite Word. 

If you want people to remember your band, it's important to get your name out there. And what better way to do that than by giving away free stuff? Everyone loves free stuff, and if your band's name is right in front of them, they're more likely to think of you later on when they're listening to music. Plus, it's a great way to meet new people and make new fans. Just make sure you're strategic about where you pass out your materials - you don't want to be competing with the headliner for attention. Choose smaller events or ones that are targeting a similar audience to yours. And above all, make sure your materials are high quality; no one wants a cheap-looking sticker that's going to peel off in a few days. Invest in some good quality buttons or magnets, and you'll be sure to make an impression.

Get Creative!

Even if you're the world's greatest musician, you're not going to draw a crowd if no one knows who you are. In today's world, it's more important than ever to get creative and find ways to stand out from the crowd. If you want people to come to your concerts, you need to think about what makes you unique and use that to your advantage. Whether it's your looks, your sound, or your stage presence, there's always something that you can do to turn heads and attract attention. It's not enough to be good – you need to be different. So get out there and make yourself memorable.

But if you really want to boost attendance, it comes down to how band you want it. At every stage there's always someone else out there ready to work harder, there's always someone else who is willing to put in the extra hours. This can be frustrating but it's also a reminder that we all have to work hard if we want to be successful. The good news is that, no matter how hard someone else is working, you always have the potential to outwork them.
