How Requesting by Fans Can Increase Your Reach.If you’re an emerging Artist, the one thing you may want to do to get your music out there to more people is collaboration and connection. Through youbloomConnect, not only can you interact with Fans in order to get requests to perform in your city, but you can also interact with other Artists signed up with youbloom to co-market with each other. Unlike Fans, where they can request any genre of music from anywhere, co-marketing from Artist to Artist tries to match you up with an Artist from a similar genre, Fanbase size, or travel radius (say within 100 miles for example). These matches are shared with Artists twice weekly and result in a social media takeover where they promote each other (and where possible, youbloom helps set up them performing together). While those matches do occur twice a week, eventually, there comes the time where it results in a performance opportunity. It usually is around a month between announcing the performance and the show. This gives time for the Show Creator and Artists to complete set up as well as marketing to Fans. During this time, you can collaborate with other Artists in the exposure process, opening yourself to an entirely new Fanbase and increasing your opportunities for more live performances if the Fans of the other Artist want you to perform in their city. With youbloomConnect providing these connection opportunities for an Artist like you, live performance opportunities can be right there for you.
