1) Connect with other artists
Alright now that you’ve created your facebook fan page and have your 100 fans (90 of which are your friends and family), its important to “engage”. You probably hear that a lot from a lot of people , but what does it really mean? Befriend other bands, post on their walls, and link to their pages. Its important to build solidarity with similar bands and gain trust from their fans as well.
2) Be personal. Don’t always talk about yourself.
Just like a self righteous , self centered person in a conversation, your fans will feel it when you talk too much about yourself. Knowing what youre doing in the practice room, and the tons of events that are coming up are great, however maintaining a good balance between asking your fans about what they think is just as important.
3) Think beyond music.
Your fans enjoy your music. Yes. However, they probably enjoy learning weird things about what you do when youre not playing. Fans tend to look up to the bands they love. You need to be trend setters.
4) Interact with cool internet props
