DIY Musician’s recent article on “6 Simple Ways to Give Back to Your Fans” includes excellent creative ideas on how to feed and care for your most valuable asset – your fans.

I have always been a big proponent of the pay it back mantra when it comes to fans. The ideas proffered in this article take that paradigm to the next level with individualized, one-on-one contact that is sure to delight fans and perhaps transition them from a casual concert goers to diehard, never-miss-a-show super fans.

Saying “thank you” to those that support you has never been more important [or easier] than in this hyper-transparent, internet culture we are all navigating. Speaking of which, thank you for reading this post. It truly means the world to me.

Too often creative-minded people focus 100% of their attention on their craft and forget to safeguard themselves from crippling legal and business issues that prevent financial success. This siteĀ is designed to provide artists of all mediums (authors, musicians, filmmakers, photographers, etc.) with critical legal knowledge and business concepts to further their creative careers by protecting both their work and themselves from potential legal pitfalls and business failures.

In order to provide you – the creative – with relevant content, I am going to need your help. Ideally, each post will serve as a prompt for conversation. If I discuss an issue in a way that’s helpful to you, please let me know. If you would like more information or clarification, leave a comment. In addition, please contact me at any time with questions, suggestions, or ideas as to what topics would be most helpful and interesting.

I am sincerely looking forward to building a community around this site and making an significant impact in the lives of artists. Thank you in advance for your participation, attention, and interest in serving the creative class with me.

Dedicated to your creative success,

Ian Gibson, Esq.
