And the Band Played on…

by ticketprinting on January 19, 2011

Independent musicians walk a fine line between remaining true to their art and making a living from their music. You may not wish to spend excessive time on marketing, but if it’s up to you to fill the seats at your upcoming concert, methods of selling tickets to that event must be considered. If you believe in your music, convincing your fans to purchase event tickets is not difficult, and neither is finding new listeners and turning them into fans. Simply determine where you want to direct your efforts!

For instance, many small bands, once they develop some local following, find that they need not worry about excessive campaigns. A few Flyers, hung about town, in popular clubs and music stores, along with a few reminders on Facebook (you do have a Facebook fan page, don’t you?) suffice for the purpose of reminding fans about the details of the show. Let them know when and where they can purchase concert tickets and you’ll find yourself playing to a packed house.

In fact, some bands find that the Facebook notification is the best advertisement of all! If your supporters are on Facebook, make sure they can find you, and make sure to reach out to them through this convenient medium!

Selling event tickets online is another popular option. Many websites allow you to create a page for your concert, add all the event details, upload a photo, and then sell the tickets for you! Once you set up the event, your virtual box office is open day or night, and you can simply circulate the URL for your page. An automated system does the rest.

So, focus on your music, but set aside some time to consider new option for getting the word out. You’ll start selling more tickets to more events.
