All the time when I listen to artist interviews or see bands live they always say the same thing, “We couldn’t have got here today without the support of our fans" which you may just think is something bands and artists say to win the affection of their fans but that simply isn’t the reason, it’s because it’s true. It’s your loyal fans who are the ones who spread the word about you and stay by you throughout your career. A loyal fan is your career’s most important asset. But first you must create a loyal fan.

Let them know they are appreciated because as I stated at the beginning of this article, dedicated and loyal fans are crucial to your success.
