As a result, you will have an easy time getting people to fill up art venues post Coronavirus.
People Respond Positively To Positive Action
The principle of reciprocity states that people will always be ready to assist when you offer them value. You cannot provide value to an audience you do not know. Only when you know your audience can you make art that will always make them come back for more.
Once you know the audience, and they too get to know and love your work, they will praise you to other people. This is good because more people will get to know about your performance and venue.
Your audience will reciprocate the attention you give to them by becoming your loyal supporters who always come back. Your best patrons ever are your present customers.
One of the most crucial things venue organizers can do is to know the audience. The above points may apply to any business, but they are particularly true for performing artists. To know the audience, artists can use digital tools or carry out a question and answer session via text to get immediate feedback.
