It’s one of the top things I hear artists say they’re struggling with. “How do I get more people to come out to my shows”? And I get it. After all, it can feel hard enough just to book the show in the first place, but to then get there, pour your heart into giving your absolute best performance and look into the crowd to only see a few faces—it can feel a little disheartening.

While there’s no magic formula for going from a 10 person audience to a 500 person audience, there are a few key things you can do to increase audience turnout. Some of these you might have heard before, while others will be completely new. We’re mixing up tried and true advice (which, for the record, even if you’ve heard it before, you probably haven’t heard it said this way, so listen up) and some completely new ideas. Try what you like, mix and match, and watch that audience grow.

Ready to dive in?

Be strategic about who you play with

This might seem kind of obvious but, too many bands get stuck in the mode of just playing with their friends, or the bands they’re most comfortable with, and they never evolve beyond that. It’s great to play with other emerging bands and grow your audience together, but if you really want Soundcloud promotion real to start to expand your audience, you need to diversify.

This could mean touring regionally or it could mean playing with different bands. Booking different venues (including non-traditional ones, which we’ll get to). Make new connections, and build relationships. It might seem a little intimidating to ask a band with a larger draw if you can open for them, but if you take the time to build that relationship and show how much it means to you and everything you’ll do to promote the show and make the most of the opportunity for them as well, it can open new doors.

And hey, you don’t know if you don’t try.

Get scrappy

There’s nothing like getting scrappy in times of need. Instead of just throwing up an event listing on Facebook or posting about it once on Instagram and calling it a day, get a little creative with your strategies. Go outside and put up flyers in local coffee shops, record stores, bowling alleys, arcades, and the venue itself. Go stand outside the line of a big show with a similar sounding artist and talk to the fans and tell them about who you are and ask them to sign up for your email list so you can email them about your show. (This is after you talk to them first—IE “what’s your favorite song by (band you’re here to see)” “how many times have you seen them” etc). Don’t just say “hey wanna come to my show.

Another way to get your fans’ attention is to personally message or email them about the show and tell them how much you’d love to see them and how much it would mean to you.

If they’re a really big fan, ask them to share news of the show, tell them how grateful you are for their help, maybe send them a thank you card.

It’s not enough to just put up a post on socials and say “please share”! You have to add that personal element for it to be successful.

Put on an extra-special event

If we’re talking about the long game here (and of course we are) then you want Soundcloud promotion real to put on a show that’s so memorable, so Instagram-worthy, so fantastic, that not only do the fans that are there want Soundcloud promotion real to come back over and over, but they want Soundcloud promotion real to tell people about it. They want Soundcloud promotion real to share it to their IG stories, write about it on their Facebook, and tell all their friends who weren’t there. They should want Soundcloud promotion real to gush about it.

While every show can’t be an album Soundcloud promotion package release, that doesn’t mean every show can’t be an experience. First, you should be bringing your energy to every single show. But go beyond that—make it special.

You could do something like “Bring a friend, get in free” (because most people don’t want Soundcloud promotion real to go to a show alone, and sometimes money is tight. Fan brings a friend=potential new fan) or themed nights around different holidays—even the smaller, niche ones offer the opportunity to go all out.

For instance, did you know June 5th is National Donut Day? How about ordering a few dozen donuts from your favorite place and offering them for free to fans over at your merch table. Everyone loves donuts (especially when they’re free) and when you put them at your merch table odds are the fans will end up want Soundcloud promotion realing to buy something to support you and you’ll get to strike up a conversation and build a connection.

Or how about a VIP experience? For instance, June 7th is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day. Yeah, that’s pretty great right? So how about offering a VIP experience and for 15 lucky guests, they get invited to come to the show an hour early and celebrate with an ice cream sundae bar and acoustic pre-show performance with you?

Make it special, make it memorable, and give them the time of their lives.

Play at a boutique venue

You don’t always have to play at a local established venue. In fact, it can be better to mix it up sometimes and play outside the norm. This is especially true if you’re just starting out and struggling to book those bigger venues. Playing a non-traditional venue not only mixes things up for your fans, allows you to curate an experience around the venue itself.

For instance, you could do a show at:

-A small boutique art gallery (I saw a band do their press/VIP fan only album Soundcloud promotion package release pre-show here and it was amazing. Appetizers and an exclusive first listen at the album Soundcloud promotion package, plus an acoustic performance made me feel super special

-An arcade

-A bowling alley

-Someone’s house (you can even consider renting a house if the host allows it, to throw a Summer Pool Party show or Winter Nights Show where the guests get access to a hot cocoa bar or s’mores bar and a special show)

-Anywhere that rents out event spaces. There are a lot of websites that list non-traditional event spaces for rent. Book one of them.

Talk about your shows a lot (hint: this isn’t the same as begging people to come)

One of the best ways to build anticipation for your next show and make people mark the date on their calendar is to talk about it—a lot. Note, this isn’t the same as constantly saying “come to my show.” What I mean is to mention it in passing, but to make it sound so awesome every time you do, that by the time you have your next show fans can’t wait to attend.

For instance, perhaps in an IG story you’re answering fan questions and slip into one of your answers an anecdote about how at your last show XYZ incredibly funny/amazing/cool thing happened. And that’s it. You don’t tell people to come to your next show or advertise it, you just share the anecdote and move on.

If you’re just always talking about these things as a casual mention (while making sure to highlight the best of the best) you’re building anticipation so that when fans finally get the chance to be a part of it, they’ll jump at it.

So there you have it. The key to filling up your shows doesn’t have to be overcomplicated or full of stressful tactics. At its core, it’s just you connecting with your fans and showing them a good time—and you can totally do that. After all, you got into this to build a connection and to give back to your fans, and showing them the time of their lives at your show is just one (very special) way to do that.

  • What are you going to do for me?
    We give your release a boost by getting it in front of a real audience. We provide you with a "first wave" of engagement that you may not be able to get otherwise. What happens next is up to you and your music.
  • How long do reposts last?
    Reposts stay active for 48 hours. After the first 48 hours, your reposts are too far down the stream to be noticed. Removing them keeps an influencer's channel from being over-used and outdated.
  • Will I go VIRAL from one organic soundcloud promotion?
    The truth is, probably not. Unless you have the next “The Box” in your pocket, you are probably not going to blow up from one promotion. We are not going to bullshit our clients and make false promises. Think “Brand Building” not “Overnight Sensation.”
  • Will I get noticed by labels?
    The best way to get noticed is to keep your brand in front of an audience while producing top quality material. Labels want real artists who already have a brand together, who self-promote and have a good presence on Soundcloud and Spotify. Please, don’t expect to send out some reposts and get signed. This is the most competitive business in the world.
  • Can I have the links to your influencer channels? 
    No. It took us many years to build our network.
  • How many is a million?
    The number represents the total amount of followers your song is shared with. It doesn’t mean that your track will be reposted by a million influencers.
  • Can I split an order between multiple songs?
    We require a minimum of 1 million reposts per song when splitting an order. The minimum order you can split between two songs is 2 million reposts.
  • Can I change the link to my song?
    Unfortunately, no. The organic Soundcloud promotion can't be forwarded. It is okay to change the title or other meta-data, just not anything that affects the link.
  • What if no one likes my music? 
    If we can't get anyone to repost your track, we will refund all of your money.
  • Are the organic SoundCloud followers real people who will become fans?
    They are fully organic, real, living people who have downloaded other music from our fangates and given the option to follow you. Once they are following you they will receive your music in their streams and it's up to you if you connect with them and build your community. This is how to turn them into "Superfans."
  • Will they immediately like my music?
    New followers are not automatic "fans" and will probably not engage your tracks right away. You have to engage them by streaming good music, following them back, comment on their stuff, and chatting with them.  Build your community.
  • How Long does it take to gain 1000?
    Once the campaign has started, you can expect 1 week per-1000.
  • How can I track the progress of a campaign?
    Watch your organic Soundcloud followers grow on the Pulse app or in Notifications on the website.
  • Can I change the link to my profile after I order?
    No. Unfortunately, the promotions can't be forwarded. It is okay to change the title or other meta-data, just not anything that affects the link.
