SongbookDB is a remote song/singer request platform that works with our karaoke show hosting software, Karaoki.
Singers browse and search your online karaoke song book from their own phone and submit requests that pop-up in Karaoki directly. With one-click the singer and the requested song are sent to rotation — and that’s only the most basic of features SongbookDB provides to karaoke hosts.
Remote request systems like SongbookDB offer a modern interactive solution that enables KJs to ditch the printed song books. While it’s not necessarily new technology, it’s new to many karaoke singers that are accustom to traditional printed books. Getting your singers started with SongbookDB and understanding the benefits may seem daunting at first – but it doesn’t have to be.
Cynthia “Queen” Jesseen of ‘Tulsa Karaoke DJ Nights‘ is a long-time Karaoki aficionado and a SongbookDB user. She’s been incorporating SongbookDB into her karaoke shows for nearly a year now with overwhelming success.
Since many of Cynthia’s singers following her on Facebook, and many others subscribe to her email list, she put together the following message explaining to her singers the benefits of using SongbookDB. We think it’s simple and to the point, and more important may help some of new SongbookDB and Karaoki users to get their singers on-board with using the request platform.
This is what Cynthia posted. She was happy to share with the rest of our community and hope it helps you on-board your singers with SongbookDB:
