Ahead of her Mañana Sera Bonita tour (the artist’s first U.S. stadium tour) Karol G and her team wanted to convert attention from this watershed moment into fan email addresses they could use to further market her future projects.
To help drive conversions, the artist’s team installed the Follow button on her tour website ahead of the October 3rd announcement of the Latin American leg of the tour.
When Karol G shared the website link on her social channels, her website experienced a noticeable surge in traffic.
Everyone who visited her website for more information about the tour was able to easily follow her on Bandsintown and join her mailing list to be notified of upcoming shows, as well as her label’s mailing list to be notified of upcoming releases, all in about 30 seconds, without leaving her website.
