Fans, the life-blood of creators. Without fans, yes you may still create, but outside of yourself, who else would be there too appreciate it? Plus, without fans, how could you make an income from your content?
So, who are your fans, how can you find them?
Big question – but simple. Your fans are potentially anyone that breathes. Yes, that is over simplified, but it is true! Whether you’re a model, artist, comedian, musician – no matter the type of content you produce, there is guaranteed to be someone out there, or a group of people that like it! As long as you like it, don’t just produce rubbish – but, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure!
What do you give them? How to keep them?
Authentic content. Made with passion and energy. No one wants to subscribe to something that is going to make them feel bad (OK, there are those people out there too, feel free to cater to them, we don’t judge!) so produce content that makes them happy, feel alive, energized, turned on – whatever positive feeling! Give them an escape from their lives for however long you can.
Engage with them.
Know what fans love? Interaction. Talk with them, send them private messages, reply to their comments, thank them. Be human. Treat them how you would want to be treated if you were someone’s fan.
That’s all for now, until next time!
