Musicians: Build Your Fanbase at All About Jazz
Musicians can now build their fanbase through their profile pages at All About Jazz.
A musician's All About Jazz following is a collection of fans, friends, and professionals that have an interest in your music. It's part LinkedIn and part Facebook, but exclusively for jazz people.
Once an AAJ member follows you, you can send them announcements about upcoming CD and download releases, upcoming calendar dates, and other promotional opportunities like contest giveaways.
Musician's can invite friends and family to follow them by clicking the View Following" link on their profile page, and copying and pasting the invitation letter (with the link to join your network) into your email program. You can jumpstart your following by sending out the invitation to your personal mailing list.
Speaking of mailing lists, you can now back up your mailing list through your musician profile. Just copy and paste your list into the Mailing List" box. Everyone on that list will receive the announcements you initiate from All About Jazz.
