There are some online retail stores that pay fans commission when they put widgets on their facebook and other social networks and are able to sell your music or merch to their friends. "

"Having a consistent email signature for all band members saying the same thing is key. Include press quotes, upcoming shows, and new releases. It is less in your face if it is in your email signature. "

"Don't cut and paste blanket emails to your fans. Be authentic even if it takes you longer as it will go so much further this way. They will tell a friend this band sent me a personal email and viral marketing will begin. Split up the emails and get everyone in the band involved. "

"Fans want to buy directly from the band as they want you to make the money and not itunes or amazon, so don't be afraid to personally email them directly and tell them they can buy music and merch directly from you. Give them a 10% discount for being a loyal fan so they are getting something also. "

"By collecting your fan emails everywhere you go and anyway you can, email them your tour dates and give them a coupon for $5 off merchandise at the show as well. Always offer them something as they often want to know what's in it for them and also feel special that they get a discount. "
