  12. 12. Twitter @gavindegraw Gavin’s twitter is his most popular fan base because of the amount of followers he has! Gavin is very personable on twitter as well, as he private messages people (ME BEING ONE OF THEM :D), he tweets to people that tweet to him first, and he follows many of his fans (ME TOO) to keep in connection with his fan base!

  14. 14. Fan clubs http://www.gdgfanclub.com/ Since I am not in the “fan club” I do not have access to the website; but it costs $9.95 a month for a basic membership, and $29.95 for the ultimate fan membership
  15. 15. Debra eckerling’s 5 social media tips Find your audience: Yes I do think that Gavin knows who his audience; since his music is alternative, it is a genre of music that basically anyone can listen to. Post Meaningful/ Sharable content: Gavin usually posts about his touring life or about making music, so yes that is meaningful to him so it should be meaningful to his audience Engage Fans: As I’ve mentioned, Gavin is really interactive with his fans with twitter, instagram, and Facebook. He loves posting and updating his fans about his musical life. Gavin keeps his personal life to himself and doesn’t really post about it; some fans would like to know about his personal life so that might disengage some fans from his social media sites. Hand Out Swag/ Put up flyers: I do not live in New York City where Gavin lives, so I have never seen any flyers. I do see promotions for when he comes to Toronto, or Buffalo as those are the venue areas I have seen Gavin in concert. I do think that this is effective because I always want to go back to see him as he is a very entertaining artist! Post Constantly: Gavin tweets many times a day! I always see him on my timeline either tweeting about life, or tweeting about his current Make A Move Tour!
