We initially created The Fan Connection (TFC) because we were working with musicians & bands that needed NO-COST ON-DEMAND merchandise & fan clubs (great sources of monetization for indie artists) & a marketing platform outside of Facebook and MySpace. Artists earn money from their merch & club sales, & as they increase their fan base, their earnings increase. Fans also set up a profile at TFC. Their pages will be an exciting & fully functioning social media experience! They can connect with other music fans, interact with their favorite bands & musicians by sending them "shout-outs", joining in contests, becoming members of their fan clubs, the list goes on! A membership is FREE at TFC. The only thing the fans will ever pay for is if they decide to join any fan clubs and the merch they buy to support their favorite artists.
