So you’ve created an Fan-Topia account, what now? We’ve looked at the strategies of top creators to put together this list of 10 things to do when you sign up to Fan-Topia. All of these tips have a proven track record of paving the way to success, but not all of them may suit your content or your personality. Read on, take inspiration, trust your instincts and craft a strategy that works for you!
1. Set the right subscription price
A reasonable price is probably between $7 and $20 depending on your content and posting schedule. The price needs to be high enough that the fan feels they are purchasing a quality product, but low enough that they will be willing to spend more or tip you.
The usual suspects, Twitter Instagram and Facebook, work well of course, but feel free to get creative. People have found success sharing their links on Reddit, TikTok, or their official websites.
3. Advertise your content
Give current and potential followers a good idea of the kind of content you’ll be posting, with short clips, images, announcements or polling. You can do this on all social media. Remember, this ties in with your subscription price. Fans want to know they are subscribing to an active creator and not just being ripped off.
4. Talk to your fans
Consistency and communication are key. Make a posting schedule and try to stick to it and reply to comments and DMs. Let your fans feel like they’re in their own community, purpose-built for them to get closer to you.
5. Get to know your audience
Find out what your fans want and learn what works. Use polls to ask your fans what kind of content they want to see (Insta is great for these!) Then remember, stay consistent. It’s tough work, but your fans want to feel like they are your only fan.
6. Do promotional campaigns throughout the year
Sales are a great way to draw people in or engage your current followers by making them feel they’re getting a bargain for extra content. There’s always an excuse to do a promotional campaign, like making use of Halloween, Christmas or whatever seasonal event you celebrate.
7. Collaborate with other creators and swap shout outs
While other platforms allow you to tag users directly on site, we don’t. We feel this creates a very “ad heavy” feeling space – and we are ad free! What we do recommend is using Insta and Facebook groups for this. This allows you to reach out and get exposure, but it keeps your Fan-Topia feed clean, allowing fans to see what they came here to see.
