Research has shown a link between social media engagement and ticket sales. If your fans are engaged, they are more likely to buy tickets to your shows.

Instagram is ideal for sharing photos and stories. Soundcloud is great for sharing new music and connecting with other artists. TikTok is perfect for sharing short videos and engaging with a younger audience.
