One of the most crucial things for an artist to have in his/her arsenal is ‘diehard fans.’ There is a school of thought that having stans is probably the best thing to happen to an artist because it will be somewhat easier to make sales and have a good and sustainable music career (especially when you make music that you are sure your diehard fans will vibe to).
The problem is, getting those diehard fans when you are just starting out can sometimes be tougher than climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. There are many ways to get more fans and following but it wouldn’t be possible without patience and commitment. The 10 tips below can help you be well on your way to getting more fans for your music.
Know and define your brand
First things first, you have to know your brand. How you dress, act, and present yourself both on and offline, makes up your brand. This will determine the way you communicate with your fans. Discover what’s unique about you, from your songs to your story and build your brand from there.
Make and release good music
When it comes down to it, if your music and shows are anything less than remarkable, you’re going to have a really hard time gaining true fans. Focus relentlessly on building up your songwriting and performance chops. If what you’re doing is really unique and amazing to your target audience, you’ll turn them into superfans who will gladly promote you to their friends and followers.
