Well we’re off to a good start here on Figment and everyone who is a registered user seems to be getting the hang of it.  Just in case though, I thought I’d give you a quick 3 step tutorial on how to support those bands on Figment that you think are great.

Step #1 – You can become a fan of a band by clicking on the band and going to their band page.  Once there make sure you click on the “Add to Favorites” link in the top right hand corner of the band page (see picture below).  By doing that you add them to your favorites list and become a fan.  From that point forward any time they release an EP or album you’ll receive an email alerting you to the new release.  Plus you’ll reward the creator of that band a one-time only award of 10 pieces of lucre and raise their profile on the Top Bands Chart by increasing their fan base by 1.  So get started…every band needs an obsessed fan!

Step #2:  Want to help your favorite band rise up the Top Albums Chart and earn 20 pieces of lucre to boot?  Go to the album page and click on the “Add to Your Collection” link.  It’s located right under the album cover picture and the Get It! heading.  When you buy their album it doesn’t cost you any of your own lucre and it helps them move up the Top Albums Chart with another album sale.

Step #3:  Want to keep showing your favorite band how much you like them week after week after week?  Well, then listen to their album once a week for as long as you like.  Simply go to the band’s album page and click on the “Listen to the Album” link located under the Get It! heading (just under the album cover picture.)  Remember you have to own the album in order to listen to it – no illegal downloading or file trading on this site!  Every time you listen you’ll help move that album up the Top Selling Albums chart and reward the creator of that band with 5 pieces of Lucre.  So give those imaginary discs a spin!
