The Right Fans Matter

Be intentional Content is important to storytelling. Storytelling is needed to grow fans.

As artists share their stories, it’s easy to see who is consuming - by now every social and streaming platform has a somewhat digestible dashboard - conveying the makeup of a fan base.

Location + demographics = social + streaming

In a perfect world, demographic and location data equals social and streaming data. For example, an artist's top markets on Spotify and Instagram are the same. This indicates real growth and provides a foundation for one to build upon.

Build on this foundation. Expand upon the core audience. Be intentional.

Finding your core fan

Many artists try a multitude of strategies that lead to skewed data on their platforms. Trying to garner numbers at the cost of a scattered audience makes finding the core fan a frustrating task.

When promoting, it’s important for artists to ask themselves the following.

  1. Am I using the right content to tell my story?

  2. Am I reaching the right audience?

Shameless plug
