Bandsintown Website Plugin Gets New Features

image

We recently updated the Bandsintown website plugin with several new features meant to build awareness of your upcoming tour dates, increase fan engagement, and of course, boost your ticket sales and event related upsells. 

The new features, based largely on your feedback and by popular demand, include the following: 

  • The option to display other artists on the lineup
  • A new column for listing and linking out to VIP & Presale packages, Merch bundles, etc.
  • A pop-up enabling visitors to enter sweepstakes being run via Bandsintown’s Sweeps Platform (Email us for more details on how to run a sweepstakes ticket giveaway)
  • A “Track Artist” banner across the top (similar to the one on Facebook) 

We’ve also made some changes under the hood to improve SEO for fans seeking out your tour dates online!

You can manage the new plugin features right from the dashboard on your Tour Dates tab and advanced customization options can be found here: http://www.bandsintown.com/plugins/js/docs

For those of you who don’t currently have the plugin installed or would like to add it to another artist’s page, simply copy the code into your website HTML and modify the Artist Name:

<script type=’text/javascript’ src=’http://www.bandsintown.com/javascripts/bit_widget.js'></script>

<script type=’text/javascript’>

var widget = new BIT.Widget({ “artist”: “Artist Name”, “link_color”: “#00CCFF” });

widget.insert_events();

</script>
