What Is Crowdsourcing? And How Can It Help Your Band?

Crowdsourcing is the idea of asking your audience for help with a task. For example, in our most recent Twitter tutorial we discussed the idea of going on Twitter and getting help writing your bio. This is one of the amazing ways crowdsourcing is helping bands get things done. You can also use crowdsourcing in many ways, by asking your fans questions on many of your everyday problems. Things like where to play in a certain town, which of your songs should you be playing on tour, etc. You can even use it to get a great objective perspective on some of your recent ideas/moves you band has taken.
