How to Engage Your Fans with Burner Connections
And use Burner Connections to grow your art, brand, or business
Collecting Feedback or User-Generated Content
Engage directly with your audience using temporary, disposable numbers from Burner. Broadcast a phone number your fans can call or text while keeping your personal number private, and take advantage of advanced tools like Burner Connections to collect feedback, record and automatically upload incoming voicemails, and save and share photos. In addition to our native integrations with Dropbox, Google Sheets, Slack, and more, you can build all kinds of custom workflows to suit your needs.
But you can start by simply sharing your new Burner number to engage speaking directly with your fans or customers—it's really that easy. The people you engage with and the content you create with Burner could be a valuable path to growth.
The rest of this page will show you how to easily crowdsource, engage, and distribute content in a more efficient way with Burner Connections.

Include a specific call to action. Do you want the caller to sing a song? Say a keyword/phrase? Record a message?
Write a text message auto-responder
Auto-responders can be used for many things, including bonus material, extra chances to win a contest, reminders, work hours, or "not available" reminders if you have the Burner on autopilot.
Automate Content Creation
Burner Connections automatically save and post the content for you, so you can focus on interaction and let Burner do the busy work.
Engage and Promote
Now, the fun part.
Promote the Burner number across social networks, through email lists, and in person (for instance, if you're a musician, while on stage at a concert) inviting fans/customers to call, leave voicemails, text with you (or your team!), and send photos.
