LIVE SHOWS & EVENTS
Engaged listeners often become loyal followers. And loyal followers are very excited about events surrounding their favorite audio shows! Such offline events will bring you closer to your loyal fan base, and even sometimes be the origin for further content. Hubhopper will also help you similarly organize (and often sell out) offline events, shows, and tours.
Hubhopper Original and Baatein podcaster Chhaya was one of the initial players in podcasts and she started hosting live events in different cities. She now runs houseful shows in various cities in the country.
Great examples of podcasters that do this are both Bill Burr as well as Aaron Mahnke who have been selling out venues in this manner for the last few years on every tour they plan.
Hubhopper today works with some really interesting companies like Bookmyshow, Insider and indie venues in setting up live storytelling shows.
