Social media has grown to be a tool for many artist, musicians and event planners. Unlike in the past, you can now make an advertisement on social media without paying thousands of dollars.
In addition, you have a chance to engage with your audience online. You can have a Q & A session or just interact with them about your day. That’s why it is easier for any person to succeed in the field of art without wealth.
However, you need to understand the basics of using social media to your advantage because if used wrong, the advert might come off as ‘salesy’ to your social media fans such as your Kik friends.
Here are some simple ways of promoting any gig through social media apps.
Make The Advert Attractive
It is one thing to persuade people to come to your gig, and another to come up with a very attractive gig advert. Bear in mind, people will only attend something they find attractive. That is why you ought to spend some good amount of time coming up with banners and shareable links to outstanding pages. Even though this might take some time, you are assured of great results.
Have Genuine Adverts
Another important element in attracting people to either come to your gig or just be interested in it is by sharing genuine adverts. By genuine, I mean having something that comes from the heart. You do not need to write the post in CAPS for it to sound genuine. All you need to do is to state the reasons why they’d better come for the gig than go for another or better yet stay at home. For instance, you can tell them that you are inviting a famous guest or there’ll be some interesting activity that will capture their attention.
Post in Moderation
Ensure that you are not spamming people’s pages with your gig. That’s definitely something that everybody hates. If you’d like to capture people’s attention, post in moderation. For example, if you have a gig coming up in five days, you can post four times a day while also using genuine adverts. Keep in mind, if one person is interested they might contacted their friends. There is a high chance that their friends might also want to come for the gig.
Using these tips will help you promote your gig to as many people as you can.
