In this article we'll share tips on how to grow your audience on Mixlr.
Reach a wider audience by embedding your player. You can also add artwork or, if you are a premium user, change the colour of the music player to reflect the colour of your website or blog.
Connecting your Facebook, Twitter or SoundCloud accounts, also makes it easier to be discovered by your friends, since you will appear in their who to follow tab.
Use Facebook, Twitter, your website, blog and more to advertise and promote broadcasts before and during the broadcast. Using your social networks and online presence is a great low cost way of getting the word out there about your live show. Remember to promote your show in advance giving listeners enough notice to tune in.
Furthermore, once you connect your account to facebook and twitter you will be able to easily share your broadcast with only one click.
Your chat stream is a great place to engage with and get to know your listeners. We find that live shows which have a high level of engagement always keep listeners around longer.
Encourage your listeners to follow you on Mixlr, that way whenever you go live, they will automatically receive a notification email which they can click through to start listening.
Whilst you are broadcasting, you will also appear in the ‘following’ tab of your followers homepage, therefore increasing your chances of being heard.
Broadcasting on a specific day at a particular time can be really handy for your listeners, it means they know exactly when to head to your live show. Try using our schedule broadcast feature to let listeners know when you'll next be going live.
This is a chance to tell everyone all about you, your show, when you broadcast and which other networks you're on. You can store all this info in the ‘Info’ section on your Mixlr profile page. Make your Mixlr page a place where people want to hang out by including a profile image and artwork.
Let your followers know when you will be online by scheduling broadcasts.
Scheduled broadcasts will not only appear on the 'information' section of your livepage, as shown below:
But also on the 'upcoming' column of the explore page, within your chosen category.
