Whether you’re writing a one off email or a band newsletter, it can be daunting to fill all that white space. Spoiler alert! You don’t have to!
We’ll talk about how to plan your topics, write about them and edit them so you get the most engagement from your band newsletter.
This time of year is the perfect time to challenge yourself to get back on the bandwagon writing to your fans. Here at the Female Musician Academy, we are hosting a giveaway for this special time of year! One lucky winner will receive a free one year membership to the Female Musician Academy, which is an exclusive group for female artists where we have tons of different training related to your musician business. This includes two group coaching calls per month, a monthly expert workshop, and access to a private Facebook community of female musicians where you will find endless support and encouragement. Simply click the button below to enter and gain more entries by sharing and joining our messenger list.
What to write about in your artist or band newsletter:
- Think of stories you have told that have resonated with others and how you can relate those stories to where you are now in your music career journey.
- Keep a list of stories for easy access.
- Write down a list of prompts so you remember the story
- Create an outline (include the climax of the story, lesson learned and the call to action you plan to attach)
- Start writing without censoring yourself (that comes with editing)
- Turn everything into a conversation like you are talking with a friend and avoid using huge words.
- Keep paragraphs to 2 or 3 sentences and remember white space is important!
- SHOW don’t TELL. Make the audience feel like they are there with you in the story. Use sensory language.
- Ask for help if you feel like your email is dry.
Call to Action:
- Include a call the action related to the story
- Keep it simple and clear
Now that the kids are back in school, it’s time for us to be more focused and serious too. I want to encourage all of you to get back on the bandwagon writing to your audiences. There is also no better time for a giveaway, so we are giving away a year’s membership to the Female Musician Academy. The FMA provides self paced trainings related to running a musician business, monthly group coaching calls and expert workshops. In addition, you’ll have access to a private Facebook Group where you’ll receive tons of support and encouragement from fellow female musicians.
