Ever since I started booking my college’s coffeehouse many years ago, my life’s mission has been to help musicians and performing artists share their talent with appreciative audiences. As my career grew, I was privileged to present some of the top talents on the acoustic touring circuit, and boy did I learn a lot.
It has been even more rewarding to share the information I learned from two decades of booking and managing my artists with you through my book, my seminars, and my coaching. And it’s been so gratifying for me to hear how Biz Booster Hot Tips have made an impact on your business.
I have created this course so you have the strategies you need to book better, more profitable tours.
Now, get the in-depth information necessary to keep boosting your career. Why leave home to learn? You’ll be doing enough of that when touring after you take the course!
ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, YOU’VE GOT TO GET BOOKING SAVVY
I remember just starting out as a booking agent working with a few artists and how I actually dreaded doing the bookings and making those cold calls to venues bookers who didn’t know me and didn’t know my artists. It was very scary to open myself up for rejection or at least the possible rejection of my artists.
There were no booking courses teaching how to plan tours or negotiate. Running a booking agency is not one of the answers to that, “And what do you want to do when you grow up, dear?” question.
But, I was a very organized person — after all, I’m a Capricorn. I thought I could use my organizational skills to help some of the musicians I enjoyed and booked when I was a student.
Still, I didn’t realize it would be so hard to make the phone calls. It really bummed me out. One time a venue booker even asked me if I had the authority to book the act. There were other times when promoters were downright rude and just out and out told me they didn’t care for my artists. Rejection! That was a hard one to swallow.
I probably could have learned the ropes more quickly if I had gotten a job working at an established agency if I knew where to find one. It was a very isolating world back then — before booking conferences and email and Google search engines. It was a world of very high phone bills and overnight shipping expenses — and that’s before any contracts for gigs were signed.
I learned the hard way! I booked thousands of gigs and hundreds of tours and earned the respect and long-time friendship of top talent buyers around the world. And you can too because I am going to teach you what I learned and the strategies I’ve developed and tested for over 30 plus years. Couple that experience with new technology and social media strategies and Wow! You will be a gig magnet!

Some challenges remain the same even with all the advances in technology—
- How do you figure out which gigs are worth going after?
- How do you effectively communicate with a likely booking prospect to create tours that build your audience and make you money?
- What strategies can you use to take on this challenge in a more business-like manner to relieve the stress and anxiety of “making the call?”
- How can you rejection-proof the process and professionalize your approach to all aspects of booking your tours?
These are just some of the things I want to share with you.

“I’ve booked myself for over thirty-five years but every time I take a course or a workshop from Jeri Goldstein I learn something new. I’ve always appreciated that she treats everyone in her courses with equal respect—whether you are someone who performs on big concert stages for thousands or play in people’s homes for just a few folks at a time—you can be sure Jeri will give you her best effort. Her strategies for finding niche markets is one of my favorite topics Jeri addresses in her workshops because it really has helped me develop new audiences for my music. In this course, she also had many ideas for developing new audiences and performance opportunities I would never have imagined. She isn’t afraid to give hard criticism but, you always know that she really has your best interest at heart. She wants you to succeed. The fee I paid for this course is the best investment I’ve made in my career in a long time.”
I’m not a big fan of theory; I am a huge fan of helping you get immediate results from these strategies and techniques. Whether you are beginning to tour or have been touring for years, this course will teach you new strategies that you can use right away to book your next gigs to help you move to your next logical level of touring.
You will be able to put these strategies to use in your next booking and touring situation.

So, if booking better tours is something that could help boost your career, I’d love to help you achieve that goal.
I’d like to share a success story with you from Joel Laviolette and Rattletree Marimba. Joel sent in a suggestion for a Biz Booster Hot Tip topic. I answered his suggestion in Biz Booster, Maximize Your Tours-Part 2: Monthly Media Methods. Here’s what happened when Joel put that very brief tip to use:
Thanks for your hard work and gift to the music community! I’ve been meaning to write to let you know that the tip that you gave in response to my question about touring in the same markets and how to build success was great. You mentioned getting in touch with non-profits. Well I have three gigs lined up in which we’ll be giving “awareness” to the non-profits (Ha! I am providing them an “exposure gig” with no pay! The tables have turned!!). Benefits to this have included mention on PSAs, public radio interviews (them calling me!!), getting on a bill for a world music festival put on by the same non-profit that we are helping, and opening up the university markets for teaching workshops. In short, your tip was awesome!”
— Joel Laviolette
Now, this is what resulted from a 3 minute Biz Booster Hot Tip! Can you just imagine what the results might be for you after 14 full hours of Booking & Touring Success Strategies & Secrets?

“Jeri Goldstein knows more about how to get bookings than anyone I’ve ever met. Her course takes the mystery out of how to get bookings. I am impressed with her ability to offer excellent solutions for any unique challenge. Jeri’s office hour calls are amazing because of her ability to think on her feet and respond immediately to each participant’s questions with terrific information. I highly recommend this course.”

Book better tours, using proven strategies!
It’s all waiting for you.
But here’s the thing; it’s my goal to give you new strategies and new ways of thinking about and acting on your career. I am not about quick fixes and tricks or shortcuts to fame—I don’t believe there are any. You can see from a full year of Biz Booster Hot Tips! that there are so many possible options, directions to take, methods to use to arrive at your goals of getting more gigs, getting better gigs and making more money. My approach is systematic, organized, thoughtful and tested.
It has been so exiting participating in the Booking & Touring Success Strategies & Secrets Course. I think it was a brilliant mixture of marketing and insight in the business spiced up with your extraordinary creativity that was and is a constant inspiration. The structure reveals that you have put a lot of work and effort in this seminar making it easy to understand. Having the possibility to listen to you adds a dimension to your written work. Listening to you highlighting certain points, stresses them more then just reading and makes them easier to remember. As a newbie you prevented me from some mistakes I surely would have made without your help losing precious time. I surely picked up the two year plan—it makes so much sense. Globally, I think that if I follow all your expertise I will succeed in my plans. What this seminar gave me is also an impulse to use creativity in all I’m doing.
You are such an inspiring speaker. I really enjoyed deeply listening to you, especially when you crystallized details, getting me to stop and think about them, and realizing afterwards how incredibly valuable it was to do so. I think you are gifted in the manner in which you pass on the information, it is so easy to understand. I appreciated your recommendations about ethical behavior and building up long-lasting relationships while working. This is exactly the way I intend to work. Or, your comments about understanding the dynamics in a band, paying attention to what is possible or not possible for them, and the importance to spend time and find their uniqueness. And so much more…
This course changed the approach I had from all the ideas dancing in my mind into to a structured, solid-based strategy.
I think the course answers all the questions about where, how, why, when to organize a tour and it will bring changes in the lives of my musicians. I’m really looking forward to begin my work with them.
It does not really do you justice, but I hope you got an idea how glad I am to have been in this adventure and what it meant to me.
Grazie mille Jeri,
— Daniela Vazzoler
