As we’re entering the new year, it’s always good to reflect on the past year and think about what we can do to improve the new one. As a booking agency, there are always ways you can improve your organization to make it as efficient and impactful as possible.
Get inspired for 2022 and check out our 5 New Year’s Resolutions for booking agencies now!
1. Become a better communicator with your artists
An agency is nothing without its artist. Next year, make sure you take the next step in making an effort to communicate with your artists in the best way possible! Spend some time getting to know them better, and make sure you’re listening to their concerns when they voice them. Artists and booking agencies have a symbiotic relationship, but sometimes it takes some extra work from the agent’s side.
2. Build better backup plans
We all know how quickly the event industry can get shut down now. That’s why it’s essential to have backups and contingency plans. Spend some time making sure you’re ready for what’s to come next year! You never know what will happen, and having those plans will make you stand out from the competition.
3. Optimize your artists’ travel schedules
Being an artist is tough on the mind and body. Make your artists’ lives easier by spending some time to make their travel itineraries the easiest they can be. Work with them to make sure their schedules are comfortable, and be careful to make sure they don’t overwork themselves. Your artists’ shows may be that much better!
4. Explore new artists
It’s always important to keep an eye out for fresh talent. You never know if the next big artist is standing right in front of you! In 2022, make sure to give some new artists you believe in a chance. There is a lot of fantastic music out there, and all a good artist needs is the right shot from the right person.
5. Work-life balance
The music industry can be very intense. Make sure to take time for yourself and your family. Dealing with artists and promoters 24/7 can definitely take over your life. Take some time off and remember to center yourself. The music world runs nonstop, and it’s critical to make sure you have time to yourself too.
We hope that you accomplish everything you’re dreaming of accomplishing in 2022.
