Get Enation Fan Rewards Through Fandemonium (The Month of October 2012)!


Hey Guys,

As many of you know by now, we are not a huge corporation. We are an indie band that is self financed and has built everything we've done from the ground up. We love it! And we also love you!

Why do we start this blog by saying that? Well, here's why...

Not too long ago Richard Lee got it in his head that it'd be fun to offer some way to reward those of you who really love to let people know about Enation. He heard of a program from an online marketing business and emailed about what it would take to create some kind of reward program for our fans. He was shocked to find out they were asking upwards of $15,000 just to get it started!

Well, since we're an indie band, we couldn't afford that -- and we'd rather spend our resources towards making more great music for you.

But the idea kept coming back to him. Time went by when all of a sudden a new twist on the idea came to him: let's try and do it ourselves.

Sure, we can't offer the slick design and automated gaming systems the big corps can. But what we CAN do is offer a rewards program for anyone who wants to let people know about us.

So, without a big budget, without any fancy databases, let's do this: let's have it based on the honor system. We have the best fans in the world; trustworthy, loyal, passionate fans. Let's reward you for helping us.


Every time you do something that let's someone else know about us, we'll give you an E Dollar -- good towards any purchase on our online store. You keep track of what you do, and at the end of this month, you send us one email with your details and we send you your E Dollars Coupon -- up to $20 in value.

Send a tweet on Twitter talking about how everyone should check out @Enation? There's a dollar. Post on Facebook about Enation? Another dollar. Write an Enation review on iTunes? Another dollar.

You keep score, we send you the bucks at the end of this month.

This is uncharted territory for us. This is us being an indie band finding new ways to grow our connection with you all, and find ways to connect with new fans, too.

PS: Remember, this is a bit of an experiment for us. It depends on the honor system. We trust you guys! Email us by October 1st and give us details on the E Dollar Rewards you've earned! Offer expires Oct. 1st, 2012. (This might be the only month we do this so take advantage of it!)

PSS: By October 1st please send us an email listing all of the ways you've earned your Enation E Dollar Rewards (you can get our email address at at the bottom of the website). You may even want to keep a rewards list somewhere so you don't have to write them down all at once. Rewards will be given (up to $20 worth) as a coupon to be used on any items currently for sale at


  1. I love this idea! I am totally up for letting everyone know how amazing your band is.

  2. I do have one question. What about Google+ users? I just shared this web post with my over 200 followers. I know that may no seem like a lot of some, but I've been adding more and more people daily. Why just today; three more people added me to their circles. I'm sure to break the 250 mark by the end of the month. That's still a lot of people reading about Enation. I should be getting one e dollar for that. BTW; what do you guys think about changing the name from E Dollars to Enotes. I think it sounds better, and goes right along with the band's name. Just says.

    1. Google + is a great idea, we'll def. add that! Thanks for the suggestions!

  3. Oh yes this is awesome and perfect!!

  4. Will you ever be playing in the Chicago area? Would love to see you guys live. Wishing you all of the best.
