The average fan is taking enough crap, they don’t need it from you too.

There is a fine separation in marketing from the personal to the professional online and even on stage. Too much personal will blank out the music, the vibe and the band. Having either a personal page and a fan or pro page is going to attract audiences faster. For a new artist that has a page full of pictures of lunch, political rants, religious views and anything else is filling up a page and making it harder for a first time viewer to find out what you are really about. Think before you post. It can be personal, but does it help push the reader to want to find out more about the professional or the music and does it have a call to action that draws them to the music? Make sure to answer yes.

This just happened to me!!! A True Facebook First. I just received a pretty wild and crass email from an owner of a Facebook group that added me with out asking me, giving me a choice or making me aware of the group. The private message consisted of a three paragraph rant explaining how selfish I am for not posting material or interacting on his page to help his other group members/ Followed by telling me how awful my first book was, how stupid my second book will be and how I was a shitty drummer. Top notch networking my man. And found it more funny to share here, than engage this guy. To anyone a little more (lets say balanced), if you like my content, my videos, my rants, thoughts, pics or advice, please feel free to click the share button or embed if you like, all I ask is that you point a link back to me. As far as the auto adding or adding with out permission...invite people and if you want them to engage or post, ask them nicely! If they dont join your group, like your page or share your post, dont go all bat shit crazy on them.
