Founded in 2007, a Live Concerts Promotion Company in California reached out to us
five years back with one goal in mind. They wanted to hit all the right notes with
Facebook ads to reach out to new audiences and generate ticket sales for its shows.
Hosting a number of annual concerts, seasonal music festivals, EDM (Electronic Dance
Music) band collaborations, and solo event nights for local artists and EDM bands -our
client had a good repute in the market.
In 2016, serving an annual audience of 40,000 and hosting nearly 20 shows a week, our
client felt the need to scale up their operations while efficiently managing the events.
Using the power of Facebook Events
To help ramp up its event marketing, our client started using Facebook Ads in 2017.
Since then, the social media site has become their sole promotional weapon. As their
team phased out Facebook marketing to announce upcoming events, it helped cut
down time-consuming activities like banner designing, printing, and distribution, sparing
them an average of 10 hours a week.
“Zarar and his team were incredibly easy to work throughout the campaign. Every single
area of improvement I have brought to them, they have addressed beyond my
expectations. Highly recommended!” –says our client while sharing his experience of
working with our team.

even more exclusive information.

ran a huge affiliate marketing campaign to gain maximum visibility and it also
