Debra Eckerling offers Musicians five social media tips.
First: Find your Audience
Artist and Musicians need there fans or audience to be Passionate about
their music. Miranda Lambert may not have the largest fan follow of all
musicians but her fans are passionate about her music. By cutting tracks
about real life experiences, Miranda attracts fans that connect with
Miranda also is a humanitarian and lover of animals. She connects with
people that feel the same way she does but also connects with those
who she helps. Her foundation MuttNation, raised money for Monroe,
Oklahoma, to help in the rebuild after the devastating tornados that
tore through that community.
Second: Post meaningful, sharable content
Miranda is very instrumental on the foundations that she supports.
She posts pictures and commentary on animals through her
foundation MuttNation, that are up for adoption. She shares photos
of events she attends or upcoming events through MuttNation.
Miranda shares her thanks with her fans for their
support with both her solo career and Pistol
Annies. Recently Miranda shared a photo of her ‘55
truck that she learned to drive in, which gives her
fans insight into her life.
Engaging Her Fans
Third: Engage your current fans
Miranda loves her fans and tries to interact with them as much as
possible. She has both a Facebook account and a Twitter account and
interacts with fans through them. On Twitter she posts pictures of
fans and adoptable pets at events she has attended. She re-tweets
fan posts and comments on them. She also posts events that she is
attending or hosting for her fans to also attend.
Something she is not doing, is Miranda is not
live chatting with her fans. I know it can be
difficult to find time in her busy schedule but
as a fan I know that would be awesome to be
able to interact with Miranda live.
Online vs. Physical Presence
Fourth: Continue the social push IRL. Hand out swag. Put up flyers.
Miranda has a boutique called Pink Pistol. She is there sometimes
socializing with fans. Miranda also attends most of MuttNation and
affiliates fundraising events. She advertises events on her online
pages, that she will be attending on her own, with Blake or with
I think this effective, however if you are not in the area that the event
is in you can not see her or support her.
Fifth: Post Consistently
Miranda posts often. I would say she is
consistent in her posts. She posts a lot for a
little time and then stops. I get that she is a
busy lady but her fans want to know what is
going on in her life everyday. I think that if she
posted something once or twice a week
consistently, her fans would feel closer to her.
When Miranda posts things online for her
fans, she uses her twitter account and retweets her fans and friends. She also posts
things on her Facebook for her self, Pistol
Annies and MuttNation.
