Help Them to Sign Up


While making great music is your first priority, the next step in your musical career comes down to getting fans to come to concerts and buy some of your music! Mobile marketing is the most immediate way to bridge the communication gap between you and your fan base. To speed this process along you'll want to get fans to join your mobile messaging list by texting "JOIN" to your personal SendTree number. Here are just a few ways you can encourage fans to sign up:  
  • Give your fans some love. Share special, SendTree-only content such as updates from the road or excerpts from new songs.
  • Give a SendTree shout-out during a concert by telling fans they can sign up to receive texts from the band.
  • When fans purchase tickets to a show, include an opt-in number that is specific to their location so they can stay updated while you’re in town. 

Marketing is a huge part of the music industry. Keep fans informed of performances and exclusive merchandise with SendTree!
