This article is going to teach you how to build a dedicated fanbase as a music artiste.

On our previous article I taught you how to build your fanbase on social media as a music artiste; and this one serves as a follow up.

As noted in that article, every musician in the whole world needs a dedicated fanbase; else they will never become successful.

Also, never think because you have 10k people following you on Facebook or Instagram, that you have a dedicated fanbase.

Especially, if you grow that account through the “follow for follow” method.

Who is a dedicated fan?

A dedicated fan is not just that person that loves to listen to your music, but the one who both listens and cease every opportunity to convince other people to listen to it.

Your dedicated fan is that person who loves to share, repost, retweet everything that concerns or is related to you on social media.

Dedicated fan is that one person who will catch the next available flight, and pay to watch you perform anywhere.

You’ve been seeing people who cry and beat themselves just to get a glimpse of their favourite artiste. These are the ones we refer to as dedicated fans.

Having one of these kind can fetch you a thousand fan in a short period of time. Because if he yells 10 people about you and he 10 tells 10 other who tell another ten; you can do the math!.

I know you are thinking that it is only superstars that usually have this kind of fans; but were those superstars not once an upoming as you are right now.

Now let’s move on to see how you can build thy dedicated fanbase as a music artiste.

1. Be sure you have the talent.

Talent really matters because there is no way you can ever start to build a dedicated fanbase if people realize that you cannot sing.

Yes!

Everybody does not know how to sing, so if you can do; then it means you have the talent.

And with that, you are set on the path to become a music artiste who needs a dedicated fanbase.

2. Make good music.

To have talent is one thing, and to make good music another.

This is because if you are not using the right production tools or equipments, you will not be able to get quality music production which is so much needed to build a dedicated fanbase.

Nowadays, an artiste does not require to pay for a big studio to get quality production, as you can even do that in your own small home recording studio.

Long as you have the necessary studio equipments, and learn how to properly mix and master your songs; then making good music is very possible.

Lots of talented artiste have wasted their musical career because of the low quality production they carry around.

Especially, in this digital age where they think quality music production can be achieved by recording with a phone app.

You need to live show the mentality, and spend some cash to get quality production.

3. Be active on social media.

If you are a music artiste and you are off and on social media platforms; then forget about trying to build a dedicated fanbase.

It is very sad to discover that some upcoming artiste only visit their social media accounts when they have a new music to update.

And the worst thing they do is share it as a link which social networks hate so much.

Therefore, if you want to build a dedicated fanbase as a music artiste, you must be very active on social media.

And this means you must know the basic content ideas that will help you produce and posts contents consistently on your social networks.

4. Create a mailing list or your official website.

To build a dedicated fanbase, you need to have your own official website as a music artiste.

And on your website, you can add a subscription form where you will collect emails for your mailing list.

People will never subscribe unless they decide to be a fan.

Thus, you can see every subscriber as a dedicated fans, and keep them updated on what’s going on in your musical career via email.
