Singer/Band Branding on Facebook
If you are a singer or have a band and you want to succeed in a competitive industry, there is a rough way in front of you. However, Facebook can help you on your highway to heaven.
But how? First of all you should create a fan page for yourself or your band. Fan pages are a type of profiles which people like instead of sending them friends requests. In this way your page can be liked by all Facebook members. You can connect your profile, either personal or business one, to this page and manage it. You can send requests to your friends to like your fan page. The more likes you have the easier it is for other unknown people to find you page and like it.
People can also find your page by typing its name, i.e. your name or the name of your band, into their search box. Once you have many likes it is easy for you to advertise your band for free. You can post on your fan page everything you can post on ordinary Facebook profiles, such as photos, statuses, photo albums, videos, links to other websites, such as YouTube, where your fans can listen to your songs and watch your videos and audio version of your songs. Another great thing is that you can make events and send invitations to your Facebook fans and friends. In the event you have created everything everyone needs to know about it can be written, such as the time and place of it, description of the event, additional information such as the ticket price, etc. Having invited your fans and friends to your event they can choose their activity in terms of your event by clicking on either yes, no, or maybe as an answer to the question ‘Are you coming?’ This is quite a reliable way of letting people know you are having a gig. However, it is not totally reliable in terms of knowing how many people will attend your pirater un compte facebook since it is often the case that people click yes and don’t show up, do not even see the invite and don’t click on anything, don’t want to bother by clicking on something or that many people hear about the gig through other means and come without having even seen the Facebook event. This is somewhat up to you. You should spread the word about your band and gigs as much as you can and your success would be more probable.
It’s not easy to succeed in showbiz but if you are good a little effort can be all it takes and Facebook bridges this gap for you.
