How to start a Music Fan Club

By | April 4, 2021


Decide the focus on your fan club. For example, you can be specific and start a fan club dedicated to a particular band or broaden your vision and start a fan club dedicated to a music venue, such as a heavy metal fan club.


Find out if there is a fan club like yours already existing. If you live in a small town and it is already an Elvis fan club, it can be difficult to compete. Fan clubs come and go though, and yours may be more informative and fun, so do not stay if you really want to start your own, just offer fans a unique fan club experience.

Choose whether you want to be an ‘official’ or ‘unofficial’ music fan club. For example, if you want to start an official Taylor Swift fan club, you would need to contact Taylor Swift and / or her representative and get permission to market your fan club as such.


Create a fan club website. Upload photos, music and current information. For example, include information about upcoming tours, album releases, and interviews.


Link your site to other suitable music fan clubs and websites. For example, if you run an East Coast Metallica fan club, communicate with other Metallica fan clubs and cross-promote.


Promote your fan club to your target audience. If you want to start a Kanye West fan club, link to your site on hip-hop postcards and social networks and go to Kanye West concerts and mingle with fans.


Gather contact information from people who are interested in your fan club and warning members to new information via texts and updates via email.


Invite other fans to help run aspects of the fan club. For example, if you do not know much about web design, you can ask a fan club member to become the site’s official designer.

If you are in love with a band and want to communicate with other fans around the world, you want to know how to start a music fan club. Starting a music fan club is much easier than it used to be, thanks to the Internet. You can start a fan club by creating a website and promoting it to other fans.
