If you've built up a following online but aren't ready for a full-on tour, you can set up shows right from your bedroom. Platforms like Stageit, Concert Window, YouNow and Busker make the at-home concert experience not just possible, but actually quite fun. You can sell tickets to the show ( however, many shows are "pay what you want") and all platforms encourage tipping. You can set up incentives to get fans to tip more. Or set up higher priced exclusives. This can allow you to actually bring in some pretty decent income without ever leaving your house. You can also use live broadcasting platforms like Periscope, Facebook Live and YouTube Live to hold live Q&A sessions, access your rehearsal or studio space or just check in from the road.
