  1. Start off an quick sale for your whole catalog on band camp – Now is the time  to give. It is the giving season. not the taking season. Set a cost on all your albums for your super fans. Not everyone desires you for christmas or hannukah, but some men and women do. Digital sale means no mailing , they get it instantly, and every person is much more than content!
  2. 12 days of christmas / eight nights of hannukah post – You never have to celebrate holidays to give the support and really like on promoted posts to your pals. Put up eight or 12 pics of your friends and things you are fan of to help other individuals. People will really like your list. It also draws activities every day and  is a cool structure piece of content
  3. Send vacation postcards to your supporters – This isn’t a way to entirely make cash, but a great way to invest in your special individuals. Post a Facebook or tweet about your postcards, and men and women will adore the truth that you are doing it. Handwritten notes are golden and everyone loves actual mail!
  4. Give out warm clothes to the needy / homeless on snapchat –  Nothing wrong with snapping a day of giving back? It encourages everybody to be in the holiday spirit and be giving. Take pics and make other folks pleased as they reside vicariously through what you do, and encourage them to be giving in the upcoming days, months, and years.
  5. Vacation song or video release – never to late to make an extra holiday song to release to go viral. Don’t forget when As well Brief did the Hannukah song? It was wonderful. Also, Matisyahu has a popular hannukah song that gets played at every party, as properly as Adam Sandler. It may well be time for a new a single to be made.
  6. Buy gifts for your fans, close friends, and business peeps.- Man. The a lot more you give this season, the much more they will purchase kind you in the year. If you do not sell a lot of merch on the web but, why do not you run a gifting contest where you send men and women free of charge merch and random goodies for fans , pals, and industry? Men and women will keep in mind that forever. It will get you a couple of far more conversations, and it is way much less creepier than acquiring it for a individual you are interested in that is not interested in you! Trust me. Wouldn’t you really like for me to purchase you book?
  7. Holiday Contests – Certain. How about we run a contest on getting my new album , t shirt, plus a present card for starbucks.  Everybody enters their e-mail and by the finish of the contest you get 200 emails for the holidays. I adore getting into things like that. Me and Flex Mathews when won something and got totally free trip to san francisco in a good hotel, and slept in a quite swanky hotel
  8. Advantage show or align with charity – Every person in their right thoughts is often thinking about providing, specifically if they have large fan base. Aligning oneself with a excellent trigger from planned parenthood to The Front Row Foundation, which puts terminal ill men and women in the front row of their request (from concerts to baseball games) will constantly get people for a gathering. Last year at my Hannukah celebration, Dave Bautista came out for the very good cause and  was put in the bar mitzvah chair. Carrying out excellent issues will always draw out the very good people, and you by no means know who is in town for holidays. They may well never come to a show of yours, but this time they come out for the great cause.

I feel of 8 as a miracle number simply because if turned sideways, eight is infinity. Forever and ever there will be two ways we appear at the end of the year. This is our time off. Or this is our time on. I usually choose to be on, given that I do not get charged for the electric bill of my personal life! Tis the season to be providing, and capitalize on the chance, aka “the most wonderful time of the year.”

25 Progressive Organizations to Help For the duration of the Holidays (And All Year)

Like the rest of America, since the final results of our election we’ve been turning inward to reconsider what more we can do to take action and make our nation safer, saner, and far more socially conscious. The holidays are upon us, which is a wonderful time to consider supporting these organizations with your time, income, and efforts. These are also groups that could grow to be threatened for the duration of President-elect Donald Trump’s time in workplace. Make your own list of troubles that are crucial to you, do your analysis, and contribute. We hope you will continue carrying out so all year.
