If you’re a musician, you’re probably using social media in some way to promote your music, invite people to shows, and stay in touch with your fans. We do this so often, we end up going through the motions of engagement without thinking about how the activity affects our SMARTER goals or how we can apply some more creativity to these tools.

Below is a list of 40 ideas that can:

  • Help you increase the number of followers
  • Sell more tickets for your shows
  • Increase engagement before, during, and after your shows
  • Build relationships with your fans as well as others in the music industry
