The BeeKonnected Advantage
Customizable Call-to-Action Buttons
BeeKonnected standout feature is its customizable Call-to-Action (CTA) buttons. You can include up to three permanent CTA buttons on the sidebar, directing attendees to your social media profiles, personal website, or music streaming platforms like Spotify. This seamless integration ensures that your audience can connect with your work beyond the meeting room, fostering engagement and expanding your reach.
Dynamic Audio and Video Control
The ability to control audio and video playback within the meeting is a game-changer. Imagine playing your latest music video or song for a group of production company executives or agents, and then seamlessly pausing to discuss the creative process behind it. This capability not only enhances the presentation of your work but also allows for a more interactive and engaging discussion.
Custom popups can be used to highlight your social media handles, website links, or any other relevant information. This feature is particularly effective in keeping your audience engaged and informed without overwhelming them with too much information at once.
Call-to-actions (CTAs) and pop-ups are also fully customizable with featured images, CTA buttons, button captions, and target websites.
Fully Interactive Website Popups
With BeeKonnected, you can embed fully functioning and interactive website popups. Furthermore, you can control opening/closing, scrolling, and clicking of these sites as a host and as an attendee! This way, I (as an attendee) can choose exactly how and for how long I want to interact with anything shown on BeeKonnected.
These are some of the more popular features of BeeKonnected for musicians. It feels like I’m only scratching the surface by telling you what we like the most.
