    Hi guys,

    hope that maybe someone would help me out. The thing is that I got a friend who is a pretty big artist here in sweden and got about 8000 fans at his fan page, but this is not enough and I would like to help him.

    So how would you do to market an artist on facebook?

    I have an idea about an application that make that people can get one of his free downloads, if they share it on their walls. How is it possible to build such an application and where can I find help? Any other suggestions?

    I'm going to create events with competitions that will engage the current fans and hopefully their friends will see them :)

    The app is a nice idea I think and could work really well. Of course you have to hire a coder to make the app for you or code it yourself in PHP, ASP or whatever you want...

    You could just create an fbml landing page that gives away a download when they become a fan and add a friend invite box. Hell you could just buy invites with the money you'd save and get even more exposure.

    "Bandpage Plus" looks really great ($1.99/month, though) the free version is nice too, but doesn't come close to the real deal - you can't customize colors, can't add the banner.. if anyone knew how to get something comparable for free, I'm all ears.. "My Band" doesn't include FB wall and feels more.. cluttered to me..

    You get what you pay for with free many times. You get branded logos everywhere and shortened functionality. If you cannot find an idea that suits what you need get something new developed and do the same thing. Offer free and paid services. If you need bankroll use kickstarter or work at getting V.C's. There are many successful app makers now that provide simple services like what you mention and do very well.

    I think Mike Filsaime had a software which does that. The name was sth with Zombie. It gives you a freebie if you do either a facebook post or a tweet..
