Tedious! Ive tried everything from facebook marketing to sending a clipboard around the room. Ive built custom merch boxes with shinny lights and even offered to give away expensive CD’s in exchange for information. At a certain point I gave up on having a list of fans that cared. Emails are hard to get and phone numbers are even harder!!!
Ive been a performing musician for over 20 years and every year, month, show I’m seeking ideas on how to market to my fans.
When i discovered TipTree.io I was in a world of hurt. It was just after quarantine and all of the restaurants relocated the musicians to a location in the building that was not convenient for fans to visit me. On top of that, fans stopped visiting my guitar case to tip me. I needed help fast!
Setting up TipTree.io took 5 mins. I had my table tents printed and at my next show.
I’m embarrassed to admit I forgot my table tents for one show and I was absolutely shocked at the response! “where are your table tents?!” “How do I tip you now!”
I quickly jumped on TipTree.io and sent a text out with my landing page URL and was back on track! So slick!!!
I tell everyone I see that this is the way it will be from here on out. If I don’t have TipTree at my show I might as well forget my piano too! lol Seriously, it has impacted my career so fast that I’m not sure how to collect tips and email addresses without it.
