Turning fans into followers on Bandsintown will improve your connection and ability to engage with them, allowing you to use our tools to their fullest potential. When fans follow you, they will be the first to know when you announce a new show in their area. There are many ways to convert your casual visitors into dedicated followers - here are the best ones.
The Bandsintown Events Widget lets you easily list events and ticket links on your website. It is automatically synchronized with your Bandsintown artist account so you can manage all of your events in one place. Your visitors can see where you are performing next and get tickets without leaving your site. This widget automatically matches the color scheme of your website, but you can also customize it to fit your exact preferences and taste.
The Bandsintown Follow Button is also a very convenient way for your fans to become followers. You can customize the color and the button icon to match your website design.
Another great tool to use is our Smart Link. Add this personalized link to your social media accounts to drive people to your Bandsintown page.
You can also boost your engagement by sending Messages to your existing fans in Bandsintown. Users that are opted in will receive a notification and email, and the message will be displayed on your artist page.
Make sure to complete your profile as thoroughly as possible. A lot of fans discover artists on our platform due to recommendations from Bandsintown. Adding things like genre and similar artists will help your discoverability and make sure that your fanbase keeps growing organically.
Lastly, you will also want to make sure that links to all of your social media accounts and music profiles are entered, especially Spotify and Apple, so that followers can be added automatically when fans link their own accounts to add their favorite artists.
