Do you have trouble getting people to sign up to your mailing lists at performances? This is how Addie did it. Between songs Addie asked everyone to get out their cell phones and told them to text their name and email address to (914) 261-3185 to receive a free mp3. A sea of cell phones opened up. It was a very fun way to get people to sign up. You could take it another step and ask them to take their own picture and add it to the text and you would be one step closer to getting to know your fans.
