10 Best Strategies To Build Your Fan Base In 2019

Now let’s dive in the main reason you are on this page. Below are the list of 10 best strategies to build your fan base.

1. Give Your Fans A Unique Name Created From Yours

You should create a name from your stage name and refer to your fans with it. This will definitely make them feel special of sharing a almost-similar name with you.

To create a name for your fans, you can add to your name either at the beginning or end. But its really cool at the end.

For instance, may be your stage name is “Petrelli”, you can refer to them as “petrelite”. Another example is “Lil Posh”, you can refer to them as “The Lil Poshers” or just “Lil Poshers”.

Call them the name on your social media posts, comments and even chats. You can be like “Hi, my fellow rydians, {from rydee} I just drop a track, check it out”.

2. Create A Group Chat For Fans On Social Medias

This is also a very good idea to bring your fans closer and promote your fan base alongside.

Social medias like WhatsApp, Messenger and Facebook allows group chat. You should create a group chat with the name you created for your fans and share minds with them. Let them interact and talk about you, your tracks, performance and so on.

Keep inviting and adding more people to the group and let it grow.

3. Get A List Of Your Fans Contact

The reason why you need your fans contact is to keep them updated. There might be an information you need to pass around like your track is out now, about to drop a track, you want to held or attend a show, you want to shoot or drop a video and more. Then you really need to be update them to be sure they aren’t forgetting you yet and make them have you in mind.

Try as possible as you can to get their mobile and WhatsApp number, Email Address, Social Media Handle and make a lists of it on a note to avoid overwhelming your cell phone storage. Then forward notifications to them each time there is something you need to inform them about.

4. Be Friendly And Funny

Honestly, some aren’t good in this aspect but it’s advisable to cultivate it. You should try as much as you can to make you followers on both social media and real life enjoy your company.

Post funny and silly posts on social medias to make them feel free and love visiting your timeline. But do these often so as not to be seen as an unserious fellow.

You can also tag and mention some of your fans and followers in your posts. Reply their comments hilariously. Share their posts too.

All these will make you and your fans get closer to each other.

5. Appreciate Your Fans

What you should consider is; The present stage you are on your musical journey is actually because some people who later turned to your fans appreciated your talent. Let’s say no one admired you or paid attention when you commenced the musical journey, then you won’t progress a bit talk less of having a fan base to build.

Now after accepting that you are who you are currently because your gift was appreciated by your fans, then you should pay them with bigger appreciation. Don’t get tired of saying “thank you for your supports”.

Moreover, you shouldn’t limit your appreciation on social media. Try to surprise them by contacting them just to say thank you. This is one of the reason you need the third point on this list which is get a list of your fans contact.

Now you have their emails, numbers and so on you can try to forward a brief message to them like:

“Hello Remian! This his Rema [from the 1st point] . I was just imagining what it will be like if you weren’t part of my Fans and supporters. Then I came to realize that I will be incomplete. I know I can’t appreciate you enough for but I still want to give you a Capital “THANK YOU”. I love you and won’t stop loving you. Keep doing what you can and don’t stop supporting me. Thanks.”

It’s really cool if you end such text with ‘happy new month, happy new, week happy new year, good morning, good night” and more.

You can make the surprise bigger by giving them a direct call just to say thank you. Humbly dial their number and make a call to express how much you appreciate their love and support. Sound crazy right? Yes it does!  Frankly, it’s seems so humiliating but that’s exactly what you need {humility}. This might be hard but it will earn you positive benefits. They will only love you more and more which is what you wanted.

Appreciating your fans with this method is uncommon and you can start it. Obviously, there is nothing your fans wants to get from the word THANK YOU but you are indirectly making them feel special and important. You are also making it  them to be part of the success you are approaching. So try it!

6. Update Your Fans Consistently 

I mentioned this in a recent post about the common mistakes upcoming artistes makes. Before adding this point to your strategies of building your fan base, this is what you should considereveryday every one want something new or latest. Latest news, latest informations, latest trends and even latest song.

Meanwhile, every single day there is a product from each of the mentioned categories. Now from the music category, let’s say every musician except you is updating their fans with songs, videos, gists, interactions and more frequently. Then as a result, you will end up being the one receiving less attention among your competitions.

You need to get your fans having you in mind with consistent updates like dropping songs not too long after each other. Like I said earlier, everyone always expects new stuffs. If you releases a single and give a space of three months before dropping another, don’t be surprised when you find your fans diverting to your competitor who keep them updated consistently side.

How would you expect someone to keep mothering your song for three months {90 days} when others are blessing him/her with brand new tracks. So updating your fans consistently will keep them by your side and build your fan base.

7. Do Giveaways Often

Doing giveaways often is also one of the useful tips to build your fan base steadily. Present them with something about you which need an answer for a prize.

For instance, say a particular amount from you belongs to “The First Person To Say The Last Line In Your First Track”. This will get them to start searching for your first song and listen to it all through. Those who those not have any of your songs but want to win will also have it at that moment.

There are different methods you can do giveaways. Just make it often and see how it will born an impressive result. Even those who doesn’t fancy you will rush to your side on hearing your giveaway announcements.

8. Make A Song Or Freestyle For Your Fans And Mention Names In It

This is probably another way of making your fans feel special just like the fifth point.

I  stated earlier that one of my favorite upcoming artiste on WhatsApp used this strategies to build his fan base in three months. And one of the points which he referred to has tricks to impress his fans is mentioning their name in his records.

Don’t forget that your mission is to build your fan base which means you want them to admire you. But do you know that their admiration will then become useful when you admire them back.

You can make a song with your lyrics explaining how much appreciate them for facing you. You can also make a Freestyle and mention as many names you can mention through out the song.

That will be another way of surprising them and telling them they are nothing to you but IMPORTANT.


9. Make Yourself Fully Available

As an Upcoming artiste who is ready to grab any chance, you should be at least 70% active and available with your fans both on social media and real life. Make sure that no one has to wait for hours before getting your attention or feedbacks of what they discussed with you.

Reply messages, comments, picks calls and return missed ones as well and attend any invited even and shows even if it’s cheap. Don’t make it too hard for fans to reach you. Make show you give yourself much time from your schedule to take care of your music career.

Making yourself available will make you fans feel free. They won’t think twice before interacting with you since you won’t take time to provide an answer.

10. Meet Up With Fans And Hang out 

Honestly, this will earn you more love. Obviously, most of your fans only cherish you on social media, Blogs, Listen to your songs on radio or heard about you from a friend before finally falling for your talent particularly. Now imagine how pleasing it will feel to meet you and chat together.

You can meet them and have fun like making a brief freestyle for them, take pics together, record video and lot more.

This might also seems hard or weird anyway, but trust me it works. You getting close to your cherishers is not humiliating like you might think but building a strong love for you from them.

Well, It’s advisable that you should apply all the already mentioned strategy before using this. You won’t doubt if your followers are real or not.
