How Booking Software Gets Musicians More Gigs
Software used for booking gigs by artists of all kinds is the way of the future for the most obvious of reasons; it’s the digital age and everything works through the internet now! Booking shows and venues with an individual artist or booking agent profile on one side and a client profile on the other streamlines communications and connectivity between all parties. Clients can do an array of research about an artist's availability including itinerary before the scheduled date of an event. They can view contracts and choose to speak directly with artists’ managers once they have formed an interest. Both parties can view the status of an event, such as whether or not it has been canceled, an important notifier in this day and age of new circumstances and last minute additions and cancelations.
More important than those things is an artist's ability to, not only have their resume online, but to also broadcast it and search for open venues, while simultaneously being able to answer questions about time, pay, length of session, etc. by just having that easily available on their user profile. Clients can entertain the idea of an artist without having to do more than simply scan their profile. The seamless communication and effective information tools give both parties everything they need to establish an interest and even book a gig.
An artist’s manager can quickly become their booking agent, or they can eliminate the need for a booking agent all together with the streamlined software services.
An artist can accept online bookings, receive notification both through SMS and email through the available apps, accept online payments for gigs, create available coupon codes for general or specific clients, and even integrate the software with social media such as Facebook, Instagram, Google My Business, and others.
The options truly open all the way up when using online booking software, for both artists and their potential clients.
