PART 1 - THE OVERVIEW EventBrite creates events for your PAID shows/gigs. The above overview illustrates how far the tool can flow through to all your musician sites. However, use it also for FREE events and you can obtain email addresses of new fans. That's a major opportunity that is so often overlooked.
Subsequent MTMG posts on Instagram and mindthemusicgap.com will talk about each of the five major apps/tools shown above. The order shown of these big five - Songkick, Facebook, Bandsintown, your website and Sonicbids - reflects the global reach.
There are many disjointed articles out there about maximizing on your events. The first thing is clear. You need to publish every event/gig/show at which you are performing.
Songkick Integrates with: your Bandcamp, Spotify, Soundcloud sites, the Hype Machine and YouTube (cards) on your videos. Songkick has both an artist and an end user app. Users use the app to find gigs near them. Facebook Flows through to: your Facebook musician ‘Page’ and is fed by Eventbrite’s option to create a Facebook event immediately after you've created your Eventbrite event.
Bandsintown Flows through to: the user app. Bandsintown has both an artist and an end user app. Users use the app to find gigs near them.
