Using Messages (DMs) on Fan-Topia

If you’re not using messages on Fan-Topia, you could be missing out on valuable opportunities. Direct messages (DMs) not only allow you to strengthen your relationship with your subscribers, but there are also many creative ways you can use them to earn more on Fan-Topia. Here are some ways of utilising DMs to your advantage.

Send a variety of media

You can send text-only DMs on Fan-Topia, or include a variety of media. You can attach pictures and videos to messages – be sure to mix it up a little!

Automated welcome message

Some creators choose to send an automated message to new fans when they subscribe. This can be a nice way to introduce fans to your page and make them feel welcomed, all with very little effort from you.

To set up an automated message for new fans, go to Edit Profile>Subscription Setup. You can make your message text only or add media.

Mass messaging

There are many reasons you might want to send a message to all of your fans. Perhaps you want to offer a special deal to your existing fans, or you have some special content you will provide for tips – there are many options, but however you wish to use it, you can message all your fans at once, with the easy click of a button!

Receive tips

One big incentive to make use of messages on Fan-Topia is that you can receive tips in DMs. The more you interact with your fans on a personal level through messaging, the more likely they are to show their appreciation through tips.

Another way some creators use tipping in DMs is a way to exchange content and receive payment from individual fans for content or interaction. We’ve seen this used really creatively – some coaches or tutors use DMs to give personalised advice, and then receive payments in tips. If you want to encourage this kind of interaction, you could put a tip menu as your pinned post on your page, offering different types of content or services for a certain tip amount.

Remember, only your fans can message you, and you can only message your fans. If users are not subscribed, there cannot be any messaging! So, if you’re a fan reading this and want to chat to a creator, subscribe!
