As if going to gigs already wasn’t enough of a reward already, online event listings site, ticket seller and music blog AfterDark has just launched its brand new loyalty scheme called AfterDark Rewards. Not only do you collect reward coins for buying tickets for shows through the AfterDark App, you also receive coins for sharing upcoming events and artists featured on AfterDark with your friends and family on social media. Here’s what they have to say about it:
“AfterDark Rewards enables the app user to earn coins through a simple share process to their friends and family. They can build on their coins daily of which they can then use to redeem fantastic merchandise, gig tickets, music, electronics and tech. This image will give you the idea of how easy and effective it will be to get more exposure to artists and events whilst giving something back to our users.”
As a long-term gig addict and live music fan, I think the app is great for everybody involved: It gives artists more exposure by incentivising their fans to share their shows or artist profile on their social media; it gives venues and promoters a free promotional tool for their shows; and it gives the dedicated music fans something back for their time and money invested in going to gigs and supporting the local music scene.
AfterDark Rewards is in its infancy at the moment, but they already have listed some great rewards including Kindle Fires, gig tickets and iTunes vouchers, with new rewards coming soon to include some of the latest tech, merchandise (t-shirts, CDs, vinyl etc) and much more.
The app is super easy to use and features comprehensive gig listings, artist profiles and a ticket shop to buy tickets directly through the app. All you need to do is download the app, sign in (which can be done using your Facebook login) and start collecting your reward coins today. If you’re a live music lover and love checking out the latest gigs and artists in your city then AfterDark is for you.
