WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO JOIN THE STREET TEAM?
A Street Team Member is really just a kind and enthusiastic soul who wants to take a more conscious role in helping spread the word about Danny's music. It's what fans already do . . . they talk about the things they're excited about with their friends. So this isn't rocket science. Or work, even.
Being a member of the Street Team is really just a more official way for us to help you spread the word in way that will reach more people with less effort, by providing you with some simple tools, some insightful guidance, and some nifty materials.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
When you join the Street Team from the email sign up form, we'll add your name to the list, along with your city and state. And when Danny is preparing to tour through your neck of the woods, our intrepid Street Team Coordinator . . . our Champion of Champions, if you will . . . will reach out to you, and to the other Street Team Members in your area, with a suggestion list of simple tasks that you can do to help people in your area get a taste of Danny's music, and learn about the upcoming show.
You would be AMAZED at the impact that one single impassioned fan can have in starting a snowball effect that accumulates into a large following in a town.
WHAT KINDS OF THINGS ARE ON THE SUGGESTION LIST?
The list ranges from ideas for how best to use Facebook to steer traffic to Danny's tour events, to how to create your own Evite to help get your friends excited about a show, to finding appropriate local forums for posting enthusiastic messages. If you're the walking-around sort, we can provide you with posters and promotional materials to place in your community. And we can steer you towards online materials (videos, MP3s, reviews, etc) that you can use to entice new listeners to Danny's music.
Those sorts of things. We'll basically provide you with a brainstorm list of ways that you can share your enthusiasm that might be contageous and help others catch the enthusiasm, too. Gazuntite!
AM I OBLIGATED TO DO ANYTHING?
Nope, not at all. No one will ever be mad at you for anthing. Ever!
We're just providing some resources that you can use or not use. Do the things on the list that you're comfortable doing. And do as much or as little as you have the time and energy to do. Every little bit helps, immensely. So please don't feel like you need to be some sort of crazed obsessive fully-committed groupy to be a valuable Street Teamer. You just have to mean it. That's it.
WILL I GET TREATS & PRIVILEGES?!
Well, funny you should ask . . . because, by way of Danny showing his appreciation for your extra passion and effort on his behalf, you will receive Treats & Privileges that regular old fans won't get, including: compilations of live recordings that will never be released to the public, special recognition on Danny's social network sites. And whenever possible, Danny tries to spend a little time with his Street Team before or after shows, even going out for drinks, if he's able. (Please understand, though . . . life on the road is exhausting and challenging, and very busy . . . so it's not always possible for Danny to spend extra time. He'll sure try, though.)
So that's the idea of being part of the Street Team. Let us know if that sounds fun to you, and we'll add you to the list. You can always change your mind later, and change your status down the road. You can sign up from the EMAIL LIST SIGN UP PAGE, or you can drop us an email at: STREETTEAM@DANNYSCHMIDT.COM
And seriously . . . thank you for your kind support . . . however you choose to express it.
