Music 4.1 is totally dependent upon the development, care, and feeding of your fanbase. This audience can be broken down into the following two categories: your casual fans and your core fans.
Your core audience fans are your most passionate fans. They’ll buy whatever you have to sell, work for free, recruit other fans, and basically do anything you ask. All they want is access to and communication with the artist.
