Building The RIGHT Fan Base

It's about QUALITY not QUANTITY; if you know you don't go to every Artist page that you add and support their music, what makes you think they are doing nothing more than adding you just to get their numbers up - numbers that mean nothing if they aren't listening? Mama always said, do unto others as you want done to you, take that same quote and apply it to your music game.

Speaking from personal experience, interacting with the 150 people you have on your friends list that actually enjoy your music leads to more people who want to check you out and add you on their own because they are feeling your music. How so you ask? The same way MySpace got you in trouble behind some girl leaving you sexy glitter comments on a weekly bases is the same way people will check you out; Muthaflippers are NOSEY! Having genuine and regular conversations with people that are actual fans on a weekly bases makes outsiders wonder, "who is this person?", so their next move is to click on your page, play your music, scroll through your comments and if you're good, they add you. TRUE STORY! You're able to do this by actually NETWORKING and being a FRIEND to your fans. Keeping it small to start off with leads to them paying you attention when you have things going on, which then turns to them following you when you get a little shine and encourages them to go out and buy your album because you were their ACTUAL Bud on MySpace and not just another annoying Artist. It's not too late, remove the unwanted people; treat MySpace as a business if you're going to attempt to count how many song plays you had for the day. Make those plays count. Out of all of those plays, how many people added YOU and not you adding them?

Think about this... Suppose you get 1000 people of all ages, genders and backgrounds to come to a show that you are putting on at a local venue. You start out the show giving the people information about your music and you perform a few of your best songs. Chances are that at least 1 person of the 1000 will like you and your music enough to buy your CD or come to your next live performance. Apply this theory to a larger group of people. There are almost 300 million people in the United States. One-tenth of one percent would be 300,000 people. If you end up with 3 fans out of that group of 1000 people, you'd have nearly one million fans!! WHY NOT YOU?!?!

Build your fan base!

I've always told anyone with a myspace page that it is WORK! You just cannot let your page be dormant and do anything!

Thank you for sharing because this is how I have befriended a few artists who I really adore such as AlexCuba and even Amel Larriex. They are very grateful to their fans because they know without us they would not be able to create like they want to.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
