TEM 61: 1,000 True Fans

Andrew Hitz

Listen via:


This episode of TEM features my thoughts on the famous "1,000 True Fans" concept by Kevin Kelly. Be sure to read the blog post at the top of the links below!

Topics Covered:

  • Why you only need "1,000 true fans" to make a good living as an artist
  • Why the easiest way to get a fan to give you $100 each year is to produce a lot of different content
  • How the key to cultivating true fans is direct contact with them
  • If you gain one true fan a day for three years you will end up with 1,000
  • Stop procrastinating and regularly ship the art you are working on
