Re: How many true fans do you have?

I have two oscillating fans pointed at me right now providing a steady breeze to my face and crotch.

I think the $100 comes from a time when it wasn't absured for a normal ticket price to be $40. Then you'd have people who spend an extra $25 for a VIP/Meet-and-greet, $25 for a shirt, and $10 for an album.

Re: How many true fans do you have?

BS... that's bad business planning ... 1000 people to spend $100 each per year does not equal $100,000!
Unless you have absolutely 0 expenses.

Chances are to create things that 1000 will each spend $100 on... will cost you a minimum of $60,000... but most likely more in expenses.. leaving you with less than $40k per year... if you're lucky.



Curious .. where is this "well-known blog" ?

Re: How many true fans do you have?

This is easier than I thought! I paid this really nice company a bit of money to go and find where my fans are (apparently lots of them didn't know they were my fans before!) and now I have loads of fans! Only on Soundcloud though.

The one thing that's confusing is that they never seem to say anything about the music, but I guess that's because they're either in silent awe or are probably Trappist monks.

It's true, I do love that trap music stuff, and I probably like making it even more!

Maybe 1 or 2 which are close freinds but thats about it. Making it big in the music industry and making some really good money from it is like winning the lottery, not sure which is harder...

Re: How many true fans do you have?

I don't know how many of my fans would spend 100 dollars on me a year, because I would never want them to pay such a high amount for my music. I'm perfectly happy with my fans paying zero dollars a year on me, minus the people who pay for my live shows, which is decided by the venue and I see none of that money (yay Japan).

If by "true fan" you mean somebody who's listened to my music for years and could chart my evolution without having to listen to my stuff over again, then I probably have four.

Re: How many true fans do you have?

If I could get anyone at all to spend a hundy on me any year, it's a goddamned miracle.

For the sake of the topic, though, imo even 50 is a stretch. 20-30 bucks for a CD and a live gig is more realistic...might be more depending on things like region, venues etc.

I actually have no flipping clue how many real fans my music has made me. Maybe I'm famous in Taiwan and don't even know it. There's quite a possibility I'm known in the Russian ambient underground, because I'm all over their fucking rogue mp3 sites for a dollar a song (unauthorized, btw).

I really hope idmf isn't turning into one of those forums where people shit on and troll low-post-count thread starters as the default response. I know for a fact most of you are way too smart to be misunderstanding Ransom's ideas accidentally.

hey man the more new people the more stuff like this I guess you will see. I wish we could all be dedicated and loving music, but I remember a time when people would have few comments on songs and the thread seemed idk more lively, but its just changing, and I think idmf is strong enough to keep the threads from becoming like others. I'm not gonna name names but yeah.
