When The World Is Running Down, You Make The Best Of What's Still Around

I know, this is the title of a song by The Police. But it is also something to think about.

When The World Is Running Down, You Make The Best Of What's Still Around

We all get those days. The ones where no matter what you do, it's just not happening. You have the day job that you're stuck in. Your band is barely holding on. You are not getting enough people out to your shows. You are not selling enough CDs. You wish you had better gigs and made more money.

Sounds like your world is running down.

But how about making the best of what you got!

You have fans. Make the best of them! I'll bet you are not taking full advantage of your email list. You should be sending emails regularly to your fans even if you are not gigging right now. Let them know what is going on. Are you in the studio? Tell them! Show pictures. Start a BLOG and tell your fans about the experience. There is so much you can do!

Make the best with what you have and strive for more!
