How do normal citizens become fans of your band? For an indi band back

in the pre-napster era, word of mouth, flyers, and stickers were pretty much the

only method to get your music out. The rate of accurate information transaction

were not perfect. Some will forget the name of the band, some will forget the name

of the venue your band is playing, some will simply forget the TIME you are

playing. This transaction is crucial for those fans who aren’t your friends, your

first true fans.

Jangula is a band I heard through word of mouth. If I haven’t known the drummer,

I wouldn’t been able to catch them live yesterday.

I had one big problem with this band. Their internet present was sloppy. Check

out their myspace. The picture is not put up right, texts are all over the place, and

the background is a plain white color background. I can’t really tell from one show

how serious they are with their musical career, but the impression I get from

myspace is very unprofessional. Most bands list their tour dates on myspace.

Jangula does not even have that.

The reason I stress the internet present is because our generation of music listeners

no longer rely on flyers and stickers to get information about a band. All the

information we need should be on the internet. This is what we are used to

and what fans are used to. The better you understand how your fans

communicate, the easier it will be for fans to understand you.
