As next year is rapidly approaching, private organizers and companies are already seeking the right artist to hire for their next events, and musicians can't wait to enjoy every opportunity to perform. Are you looking for the best way to boost your profile and get the most out of Gigstarter? Don't worry, you've come to the right place! With the PRO membership, you will unlock everything you need, and this article will help you discover all the details.
Respond to open calls and get more reviews
With the free subscription, your only way as a musician to get in touch with a booker is to wait for them to come forward and send a personal request. But what if we told you there is another way of getting performances? Monthly, Gigstarter receives tons of calls from across the world, resulting in more than 10 daily opportunities to secure a gig.
In these open calls, bookers provide the Gigstarter team with all the necessary details of the event and the type of musicians they are looking for. Once this is done, our team invites PRO (and PRO+) musicians to the request. Would you like to have priority over other artists when we receive a call? Then you should consider the PRO subscription. You will be free to chat directly with those who are interested in you and make important arrangements. You'll see, your booked days in your agenda will multiply! Moreover, as a PRO member, you can ask three prior bookers to write a review about you. This not only improves your spot in search engines but also helps you stand out among fellow bands/musicians. On top of that, those prior reviews renew every year. Meaning that every year you get three review requests you can send out outside of your bookings through Gigstarter.
Up to five registered profiles
Whether you're rocking it with your band, bravely performing in front of listeners alone, or sharing experience with a partner as a duo, Gigstarter lets you embrace your musical identity with different profiles for each act. As a PRO member, you can effortlessly manage up to 5 profiles, multiplying your chances to get booked for local live performances. Even though music isn't just about quantity; it's a strategic move to attract different opportunities to your profile. With Gigstarter PRO, you're not just a musician; you're a flexible performer ready to leave a lasting impression on multiple target audiences and generations.
Small Add-Ons to improve the profile visuals
Upgrading the free profile also allows to transform the profile into a visually aesthetic representation of you as an artist! Various small but valuable add-ons exists on Gigstarter, starting with the ability to add multiple videos, professional photos, and display your concert agenda along with contact details directly on your homepage. Make it easy for event organizers and fans to connect with you while presenting your musical journey in a visually more attractive way.
