Non-fungible Tokens (or NFTs) are a novel concept that is still in development. While you might have heard the term for over a year or two now, you might not know their potential if you have not researched enough. NFTs are becoming popular across creators, particularly digital artists and celebrities. While there are many NFT promotion strategies present already, it is important to know how to use those accordingly when dealing with NFTs. This blog could be the perfect starter, if you are looking to delve into the world of NFTs and promote them as a creator.
Get into The Popular Marketplaces
While you can mint your NFTs through any established marketplace, it is very important to know the marketplace that suits your requirements. Different NFT marketplaces list out different types of art such as artworks, music, photographs and even gaming cards. So, it is very important to know in which marketplace you are listing your work. Often creators list their work in multiple marketplaces so that they have more chances to get high prices. Some popular marketplaces for NFTs include OpenSea, SuperRare, Rarible and more. This works as an easier way to promote your product as there is a large base of NFT enthusiasts around these portals and they can easily come across your NFTs.
Adopt Public Relations as a NFT Marketing Strategy
As NFTs are steadily growing in stature, people are constantly looking out for newer updates and stories on NFTs. Although public relations is a sector as old as marketing itself, in the case of NFTs, it is more than giving out constant updates to the media. This is because oftentimes, even those media reporters need to know more about the technology behind your update before being able to write a report on it. Also, a PRO needs to make sure that every word given out from them needs to be understood by more people than just blockchain professionals, as most investors lie outside the technological circle and more prospective investors are from the general public and celebrity circle.
Utilize Search Engines to Your Advantage
With the increase of people who use the internet, search engines get more engagement than ever. To make such levels of engagement beneficial for marketing NFTs, marketers use the strategy where they optimize these search engines and this greatly benefits their clients. Adopting SEO can ensure that your NFTs rank higher (that is, appear on the earlier pages in the search engine results) when users search using relevant keywords. As NFTs still remain an internet phenomenon, utilizing best SEO practices in your NFT promotions can be a great way to increase impressions and customers.
Make the Best Out of Social Media and Influencers
With various social media apps becoming the virtual homes for its users and with all the buzz for NFTs being the result of social media, there is no better way to promote your new NFT than using social media. People from every nook and corner actively use social media and reaching them would be easier through informative posts about your NFT products. Mix some fun through memes and friendly banter, then every social media would be yours and promoting your NFT brand becomes easier using your virality.
Due to their antics on social media, influencers are highly sought after as their involvement with a product ensures an increased reach for the particular product. NFTs are not an exception too and you can plan on promoting your NFTs through influencers. If you can get multiple influencers promoting your new NFT products, then there is a high chance that more people will buy your NFTs or atleast have a look at your products.
Write Out Various Blogs
Just like every new product in their early stages, NFTs are there too and there are a lot of grey areas and skeptic thoughts associated with them. To make people aware of what NFTs actually are and to promote your products, you can take up writing blogs both on your own site (Official blogs) and on other sites dedicated for guest blogs. Guest blogs actually work since people look out on such sites when they come across some news on newer technologies and these can actually serve them, while being a marketing tactic through the use of external links.
Reach Out Through Interactive Platforms
While social media can be a great promotional tool for marketing NFTs, nothing is closer to a user than to reach out through personal interactive platforms such as Telegram, Discord, Reddit, Clubhouse and more. It is also advisable to reach out through community platforms such as Cryptotalk if you are planning to sell your products as there will be a lot of crypto and NFT enthusiasts present in such portals and you can go straight to the point. Even though these platforms prove to be powerful in promoting NFTs, excessive and unnecessary spamming in the name of promotions would not be tolerated and you need to be careful on how subtly you promote your NFTs through them. You can also host AMA sessions through these platforms once you garner enough attention and promote your product by answering the doubts of your followers.
Other NFT Marketing Strategies that could Benefit You
Apart from all these main strategies, there is an important strategy in using emails and newsletters as people love reading stuff that is more personalized even if it is a promotion for your NFTs. Also, with YouTube gaining more traction, posting informative videos can be the best move to market your NFTs as they can reach more people easily than written promotions. Advertising through web banners can also be a way to gain website viewers, even though they are currently not a popular promotional tactic. Still, with a high number of viewer impressions, your website can gain traction through search engines, if you employ relevant techniques.
A Final Note
If you have come this far and have got a plan to promote your new NFTs, congratulations to you! But, NFT Marketing is easier said than done if you do not have the proper resources. To reduce the burden of promotions from you, hiring a NFT marketing agency who specialize in promoting NFTs using various strategies. Their expertise ensures that your NFT products are advertised far and wide through various media and generate you more revenue than you spent for your promotional campaigns.
