This article shows you how to set up a BandPage section for your Facebook fan page, as well as how to set up a Facebook fan page if you haven’t got one already. You may want to check out an accompanying guide on How To Attract 3,000 Fans In 30 Days, a ebook written by Nick O’Neill, a man with over 71,000 Facebook fans (So he knows what he’s talking about lol). Update: This guide is no longer available. You can instead learn more about Facebook marketing as well as many other music marketing techniquies in the Academy. All that information is below, so please see the relevant headers if you want to skip any bits. But first, here’s a little background:
As many of you will know, MySpace has been steadily declining for some time now. While it used to be an effective tool to promote your music, these days it’s full of musicians promoting their music to each other. The irony of this is that the majority of musicians are only there to promote their music to you, and aren’t really interested in hearing what you have to offer.
So while MySpace continues to die out, where should music communities go to? Facebook has been one of the many places musicians have experimented with to building up their fan base, but it has never been a complete music solution… Until now!
