These times have been hard on musicians especially so during the actual pandemic crisis. It has led the industries to cancel concerts, tours, the release of albums and the media has been crippled. All this is a great impact con musicians today. Whit any crisis always comes new ways to look at the world and different opportunities arise as we like humans need to find a way to keep moving forward. This had led to finding innovative ways to continue reaching your fans and the general public. Online gigs are probably the best example of a positive and useful answer for musicians in current times.
One of the simplest ways to broadcast a free show to your fans is doing a live broadcast on Facebook. Arguably there is no better way than this unless your fan base is wider on your YouTube page, and being this the casa a YouTube live session would be the right thing to do. To do this you can use your phone or computer to broadcast simply by choosing “live video”. A great thing about using Facebook Live for broadcasting your gigs is that you can get quite a reach and it is very easy and simple for your followers to watch it and share it.
YouTube Live and Instagram Live are pretty much the same in broadcasting capabilities as both of the platforms make it easy to promo your live performance by sharing a notification of your broadcast with all your followers. You could also use Zoom to broadcast your gigs live, but remember that there is a limit on audience to 100 viewers and a specific time that you can host this session. Leaving you probably with the first three options as a better way to reach your fans for a great gig in these times.
