When we look at how technology and the digital medium can help your choir, there are a few areas they can help in. Read this blog article to know more about how technology can be used to benefit your choir’s branding and performances, without the need for coding or expensive developers.
One of the key areas technology and digital media can help is branding. This includes your choir’s website, social media, and email if possible. A website helps the audience understand more about the choir, its members, upcoming events, and the ability to buy tickets. Social media is used to engage with the audience on a regular basis. While an email is important to keep the audience updated on all news about your choir. While a website may not be feasible for all choirs, platforms today enable easy-to-build landing pages which can include all the details of the choir and its upcoming events.

A key benefit of adopting technology and digital media is the ability to sell tickets in minutes. Platforms today offer secure ways for audiences from around the world to buy tickets for your choir performance with dedicated event pages. This includes multiple ticket variants for different levels of access to the event, and also the ability to purchase on any device, be it a mobile, tablet, or computer. The platform can also offer a program schedule and a summary of the event and speakers/guest conductors. You can also use email services to send personalized reminders to attendees, and track analytics on who engages with your emails.
Digital media can be a very efficient way to market your choir and its upcoming performances. You can use it to talk more about your choir’s values, your repertoire for upcoming performances, ticket purchase options, links to highlights of past events, and even personal stories about the choir members. To know more about this, read our article on digital marketing for choirs.
The pandemic has proved the adoption of online events by audiences around the world. An important part of performing online is having a robust live streaming platform, which lets you and the audience focus on the performance, and takes care of everything else. Today, there are limited options of platforms that not only help you with high-quality uninterrupted audio and video streaming but also help you engage with your audience in innovative ways. These include polls during live events, forums to allow simultaneous conversations on different topics, gamification, e-auctions to earn revenue while engaging with your audience, and even alternate ways to raise money like Superchats (a concept pioneered by YouTube).
Some platforms also let you host on-demand events, which can include pre-recorded videos. This can become a recurring revenue stream, seeing as how you don’t have to put in effort again and again. This is also a good way to let your audience know about your past performances, and give them a chance to revisit these events whenever they’d want.
In summary, a good platform not only makes your job easier but also satisfies your audience.
