Team FanBridge

If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you probably saw some of our Grammy nomination announcements last month. We’re so proud of all of our users who received nominations this year! One of those nominees, composer Christopher Tin, wrote in to let us know the good news. He had a few nice words to say about how FanBridge has helped him along the way:

FanBridge has been a valuable tool for me not only in staying in touch with my fans, but also for helping organize all my professional contacts in film, video games and advertising.  I use multiple lists and sub-lists of subscribers to target my messages.  For example, the fans who sign up for my mailing list will get all of my emails, but my business colleagues only get select messages.  Likewise, the VIPs in the industry that I know–studio heads, executives, etc.–only get the major announcements…for example, my announcement about the Grammy nominations.”

While we focus a lot on growing your list and communicating with your fans, FanBridge is also a great tool for organizing press and business contacts. Our Groups feature will make sure that you’re sending attractive, timely, and effective press releases to the right people without bombarding them with the emails your fans want to read. Christopher isn’t just using us for email, though. He says:

“I’m also a big fan of the Q&A section.  It helps me connect with the fans and really get a sense of what it is that they’re looking for from me.’

Fan Questions isn’t just about making your fans happy. It can also be a source of input and feedback from your most valuable customers.

Christopher Tin is a composer whose career spans all major markets: film, television, video games, advertising, and the record industry. His classical/world fusion album ‘Calling All Dawns’ is nominated for two Grammys: Best Classical Crossover Album and Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalists. If you’re a voting member of NARAS, we suggest supporting your fellow FanBridge user. If not, you can watch the Grammys with your fingers crossed on Sunday, Feb. 13th.
