We recommend doing all of the following things to get as many applications as possible.

1. Facebook

Use video (create your own or request a custom one from us by emailing us here.. Here are some examples of great artist made videos.

Keep your Facebook copy short and sweet - 'You can book me to play at your house! Head here to apply: https://parlourgigs.com/artist/yourartistname

Create a targeted ad to your key markets or where you'd like applications to flow from. Take a look at your Spotify for Artists data to see where you're being streamed.

2. Instagram

Change the link in bio to your Parlour link for the duration of the campaign. Direct your fans to 'hit the link in bio'.

3. Mailing list / EDM.

Send an email directly to your fans. Parlour can also send you a HTML template to make this easier. Send us an email here to request one.

4. Bandsintown for Artists

Ping your super fans directly on this awesome new platform.


Don't just limit it to one post! Keep reminding your fans that they can apply to host you. Artists that hustle a bit tend to get a lot more applications.
