How to Increase Attendance at Wrestling Events

Wrestling is a multi-billion dollar industry that continues to be a popular form of entertainment. WWE, with its large and active social media following, produces over 5 hours of live content every week and has a global television audience of over 800 million people in 180 countries. Wrestling is especially popular in America, Canada, Japan, Mexico, and the UK.

However, in recent years, many wrestling promotions, having difficulty creating new stars, have struggled to attract and retain fans. This has led to a decline in attendance at wrestling events. If you are a wrestling promoter, there are a number of things you can do to increase attendance at your events.

The most important factor in attracting fans is to create a strong product that they want to see. This means presenting exciting matches, and when there is a feud involved, including a compelling storyline. You should also make sure that your events are well-produced and entertaining.

Once you have created a strong product, you need to let people know about it, promoting your events effectively. A wrestling writer can promote your upcoming shows, DVD's, etc. by writing about them on their platform and also sharing the information with their followers on social media. This would help to increase attendance at your events. If you hire a wrestling writer, you will probably have to choose between one that is high-quality/very experienced or a less experienced/less expensive one. Your decision will depend on what is higher on your priority list: quality or cost. If you are on a tight budget, you may want to hire one who is not very experienced and who will probably be low cost. However, remember that you usually get what you pay for and they may not produce the same quality of work as a more experienced one. If you hire one who is well-respected and has a lot of experience, their rates are likely to be higher than less experienced ones, but so will their quality of work. This will lead to better results for your wrestling company. Also keep in mind that it's possible for a high-quality/very experienced service to be expensive yet also affordable.

Wrestling tickets can be expensive, which can deter some fans from attending events. So, make sure that your events are affordable.

Create a fan-friendly environment at events that are welcoming and enjoyable for them. The best-case scenario would be comfortable seating, clean restrooms, and a variety of concessions. You could also have security personnel on hand to ensure fans that they will be safe.

If you are struggling to increase attendance at your events, you may want to consider hiring a wrestling consultant. A consultant can help you develop a marketing plan, create compelling content that resonates with wrestling fans, optimize your website and social media presence for maximum impact, and provide you with valuable insights into the wrestling industry.

I am a wrestling consultant with decades of experience in the industry. I have helped numerous promotions increase attendance at their events. An example of my work are that I helped Michinoku Pro Wrestling sell out a show at the Korakuen Hall.
