1. Building an Email List

One of the most effective and personal ways to connect with your fans is through an email list. If someone gives you their email, they're inviting you into their personal space, signifying a deeper level of interest in your work. Emails about new releases or tours are more likely to be seen and read compared to social media posts, which are often lost in crowded feeds.
