FANS

Established in 2012 WeDemand, gives power to the fans to demand shows in their city and create a direct conversation with their favorite artists. WeDemand shares fan demand data with artists and managers, enabling a one-to-one conversation while helping inform the best places to tour.

I'M A FAN, HOW DO I FIND MY FAVORITE ARTIST?

You can find your favorite artist by searching them in the search bar on the top right of the main page.

IF I DON'T FIND MY FAVORITE ARTIST CAN I CREATE A PAGE?

As a fan, you cannot create a page for an artist.

IF I CAN'T CREATE A PAGE, HOW CAN WEDEMAND MAKE ONE?

Most artists are already on WeDemand but if you can't find one, email us at info@wedemand.com with the name of the artist you want to demand, a link to their Facebook, Twitter and/or website.

CAN I REGISTER WITH FACEBOOK OR TWITTER?

Yes, simply hit "login with Facebook" or "login with Twitter" when you sign up. To connect them to your profile, click on your picture in the upper right corner and go to "settings". There you will see buttons that say "Connect Facebook" and "Connect Twitter."

HOW DO I DEMAND MY FAVORITE ARTIST?

Go to the artist page, login (if you aren't already) and hit the demand button. If you sign up with email, you MUST confirm your email or your demand will not be counted. A tweet/retweet on Twitter also counts as a demand as long as it includes the artist’s hashtag and mentions us @WeDemand. The hashtag will be included in a tweet generated from the artist page.

WHAT DO I DO WHEN AN ARTIST POSTS ON FACEBOOK AND I WANT TO DEMAND THEM?

You can click on the pink “Demand a Show” button. This will take you the to artist page and log in. Or, copy and paste the link they provide and start the demand process (see above) from there.

WHAT DO I DO WHEN AN ARTIST POSTS ON FACEBOOK AND I WANT TO DEMAND THEM?

You can click on the pink “Demand a Show” button. This will take you the to artist page and log in. Or, copy and paste the link they provide and start the demand process (see above) from there.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE CITY I'M DEMANDING AN ARTIST IN?

You can change your city by clicking on your picture on the top right corner and going to "settings" or, on the app, by going to "You" and selecting "Edit Profile." This will change your demands to whatever city you set.

HOW DO I SHARE MY FAVORITE BAND'S WEDEMAND PAGE WITH MY FRIENDS?

Share buttons will appear once you've demanded an artist. You can also copy and paste the unique WeDemand artist profile url from your browser.

IF I DEMAND AN ARTIST, WILL HE/SHE DEFINITELY COME TOUR IN MY CITY?

Not necessarily. The artist might not come at this time but he/she will be aware that fans are demanding them. You can help us bring them by getting more demands and tweeting the link to their WeDemand page. The more demands we have, the easier it is to book the artist in your city.

HOW MANY DEMANDS DO WE NEED TO BRING AN ARTIST IN MY CITY?

It depends on your city and the popularity of the artist. In general, the more, the better! Look for verified artists, they will have more of a chance of listening to demands. There are a lot of factors but as a rule of thumb, you have to get at least half of the capacity of venues that the artist plays. For example, if an artist is playing 2,000 capacity venues then you would need at least 1,000 demands in your city and if the artist is playing 40,000 people arenas you will need at least 20,000 demands.

DO MY DEMANDS HAVE THE SAME WEIGHT FOR ALL ARTISTS?

Unfortunately, no. Bigger artists will need more demands to come to your city and might not come at all due to the scale of their live show. The more demands there are, the higher the chance they will think about it.

WHAT DOES BEING THE MOST INFLUENTIAL FAN MEAN?

Being a Top Fan means you have referred the most demands for an artist. This means people have demanded the artist from your special referral link. This can lead to cool prizes, so keep sharing and getting demands!

HOW DOES WEDEMAND TRACK MY REFERRALS?

We track your referrals using a special link with your referral code at the end of it. This will automatically be included when you share with the share buttons on an artist's page. You can also find it on the url on your browser. We do not install any cookies to your computer.

CAN I DEMAND AN ARTIST MORE THAN ONCE?

You can only demand an artist once.

HOW DO I GENERATE MORE DEMANDS?

Share with your friends on social media and get them to demand!

IS LISTING MY TOUR DATES ON WEDEMAND CONFLICTING WITH OTHER TICKETING WEBSITES?

No, listing your tour dates on your WeDemand page acts like your tour page on your website, linking to whatever ticketing system you or the venue is using.

IF I DON'T HAVE A TOUR PLANNED HOW CAN I USE WEDEMAND?

I AM AN UPCOMING ARTIST AND I DON'T TOUR YET. IS WEDEMAND USEFUL FOR ME?

Absolutely! When you do go to book your first tour, you will have the data to be able to smartly route that tour, contact your fans to tell them you're coming and have leverage with promoters to prove the concert will be a success.

If you get enough demands, your top cities will become clear and you would be able to route a whole tour.

HOW CAN I SHARE MY WEDEMAND PROFILE AND GET MORE INFORMATION ABOUT MY FANS?

The best way is to share the direct link to your WeDemand profile in your social networks and invite the fans to demand a show. More shares equals more demands, which equals more information for you. That way you can find out exactly where your fans want to see you.

I HAVE AN AGENT ALREADY, WHY DO I NEED WEDEMAND?

WeDemand's data can help you and your agent find new cities that you may not have known you had a market in and give your agent leverage when negotiating a deal (Eg. I have 1000 fans in your city who I can email when the tickets go on sale)

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF USING WEDEMAND?

As an artist, you have access to a special area of the platform, called the Backstage. There you’ll find a detailed map of fan demands in real time with the ability to discover new markets and your top demanders and influential fans. This gives you the ability to predict and optimize attendance for shows, determine off-the-radar opportunities, and/or add dates to an existing tour schedule. You also have the ability to contact all your fans to promote current and future shows.

WHAT IS A CAMPAIGN?

A campaign is a special event that you hold with WeDemand. This can include giving away free tickets or Meet & Greet passes to your Top Fans, planning a special event, or holding a crowdfunding campaign. To see some examples click here.

HOW CAN I WORK WITH WEDEMAND TO CREATE AND LAUNCH A CAMPAIGN?

Email us at info@wedemand.com and we can help you create a campaign. Bring us your ideas or we can work with you to find something that will work on our platform.

HOW DOES CROWDFUNDING WORK?

WeDemand has crowdfunded over 80 shows. We help you set a date and a venue and we sell the tickets before the concert is confirmed. If we sell enough tickets to confirm the concert, the concert happens. If not, the fans are refunded. We need to sell a minimum number of tickets to cover your costs. After the minimum amount is met, the general sale starts. Fans who bought their tickets with WeDemand get a special price and know they made the concert happen.

CAN I JUST CROWDFUND ONE SHOW?

Yes, crowdfunding a show can work especially well when it is a one-off show in an unknown market. See some examples here.

HOW DO I SELL TICKETS ON/THROUGH WEDEMAND?

WeDemand has it's own ticket selling system. Email us at info@wedemand.com if you are interested in selling general sale tickets, VIP tickets, or crowdfunding tickets with us. We compile a list of names that we send to the promoter.

ARE FANS BUYING TICKETS BEFORE A SHOW IS CONFIRMED?

Yes, with a crowdfunding campaign the tickets are sold before we confirm the concert. If we do not sell enough pre-sale tickets and the show does not get confirmed, the fans will be reimbursed.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE SHOW IS CANCELLED?

Fans get their money back if a crowdfunding show is cancelled. We refund them on our system and the money goes back on the card they used to buy them.
