Even though you have tested your performance via screen, it's different dynamic to have real audiences who paid for your project in front of you. So when your online live project is listed and ready to attract booking, invite your friends and families, closed networks of yours, to book it. Have their real-time feedback at the end, request their rating and review, and ask them to support your project by spreading the word, inviting their friends to your project.
Why ratings and reviews matter?
Having best-in-class user-generated ratings and reviews content is more important than ever. It’s become an expected and influential part of the purchase journey. For instance, PowerReviews research finds that 95% of shoppers consult ratings and reviews while they’re shopping. And 86% consider reviews an essential resource when making a purchase decision. Ratings and reviews rank high among the top factors impacting purchasing decisions, coming in at #2, just behind price.
Additionally, Attractr's landing page showcases projects that are highly rated and reviews as "Featured online live projects". We suggest you to have a wrap-up section 5-10 mins before the closing of your online live project. In this section, you can have Q&A with audiences, and at the very end, kindly remind the audiences to leave rating and reviews on your project page, and promote your project their friends.
You can get your friends to share. But only the strength of the project can get their friends to share. Why will people share and support your project? People share things when they feel emotion. What emotion will your audiences feel? Some emotions spread better than others. Emotions that spread: awe, excitement, amusement, anger, anxiety. Emotions that don’t: contentment, sadness.
We feel emotion when there is a story that enriches our senses. In order to arrange the best context for your project to drive emotion, tell your story. Who you are, why you do what you do, what your journey was and what your dream is. Deliver a message that stick to your audiences. Make them want to meet you.
