Growing Your Audience
LÜM always recommends using the application as a tool! Continue to post your music to reach new ears. Connect with your fans and fellow artists to build meaningful relationships.

Fans want to learn about the meaning behind the song, what got you into music, fun facts about yourself – put a person behind the music.
Help With Your Career
LÜM is more than just music. You can create a base of committed fans through effective branding and by engaging throughout the platform. The community-feel to the application also provides a great space to collaborate with other artists who have passions that match your own, and the opportunity to receive feedback on your projects. While LÜM exists in the digital world, successful artists have taken what they've built in-app and translated that into the real world via collaborating and community building.
Getting Paid on LÜM
While LÜM provides a space that allows for the direct-to-artist virtual gifting support, artists are in no way privileged in receiving Notes and Gifts, nor should they expect to receive support without the necessary diligence. LÜM's virtual gifting system functions under an opt-in model, meaning fans have zero obligation to purchase Notes and send gifts to artists.
LÜM designed this system to encourage and reward fans (and other artists) for supporting artists. However, the artist is responsible for providing a reason that facilitates monetary support. Gifting is the byproduct of building genuine connections to those who love the artist and their music.
While LÜM understands that artists are looking for ways to monetize their craft, the primary aspect of LÜM is its ability to increase the reach and exposure an artist receives through the continuous circulation of their music. If an artist is only concerned with obtaining Notes, they will alienate themselves to potential fans and close themselves off from receiving support and connections with the LÜM community.
To increase the likelihood of receiving tips, please refer to the above section "Growing Your Audience." It is also important to express gratitude when a fan does virtually gift. That way, the artist makes the fan feel appreciated and noticed while creating a personalized experience for that fan.
