Sync your website with your Bandsintown account:

Bandsintown have made cross-platform integration simple with their 'Events Widgets'. This process is completely customisable so you can find a style you like!

 

 

Sync with Facebook:

There is less customisation here than with your website, but it is still a fantastic way to reduce effort and maximise consistency as events are automatically updated. Install the Bandsintown Tour Dates tab on your FB events page and watch as you generate more attention and convert followers into trackers.

 

 

Communicate with your fans:

This is the best way to let fans know how much you love them. Share photos, teasers, merchandise and other exclusive content to your followers through mobile notifications and emails. You can even encourage fans who have RSVP'd to grab tickets before it's too late.

 

 

Learn more about your audience with real-time analytics:

This may not be the most interesting feature for a creative but it is a great opportunity to get real data on what makes your audience tick with information on engagement habits, interests, location and demographics. This is a win-win situation since you can be more intuitive towards what your fans want to see, creating a better experience for them and more satisfied customers for you.
