To market yourself, be consistent! Growing your authority is a daunting task, but if you keep at it, people will start to take notice. Wait, I’m rude! Welcome to my blog! It might be worth reading my intro at striving-pro-artist. Okay, so back to being steady in growing your presence, here are some things you can try:
- Post something interesting at least two times a day
- Always respond to comments
- Give back to your favorite community by providing helpful advice
Why get into community life?
Imagine doing everything by yourself on a distant planet with nobody to talk about your accomplishments and failures. I had this feeling for a while, now and then when I post my stories, I might get a like on a blog post or view, but no comments. Then I discovered the particular truth about blogging, and I reached out for help. In other words, visit other blogger and comment. With this consistent effort, bloggers will take an interest in you! For example, I’ve provided feedback on www.blendernation.com to various artists. I have purchased a few valuable plugins, that will enhance my workflow. I will be giving back to the community, and people will take note of me. Always thank the creators of the tool, this will not only help the tool-maker but help you get noticed.
Who can teach us?
When I used to play World of Tanks, I noticed those top players were famous, unmistakably right? Look, they didn’t start being astonishing tank drivers day one. They had maintained a consistent effort, learned a few things and started growing their reputation. People will want to know how you’re able to play so well? You can share your tips and tricks on YouTube or in a blog post. The key was being consistent here. If you keep at it, you will eventually get better. After you share your idea’s and people will praise you for it. Another important note here, keep trying different things, don’t give up. I lost interest in the game, but I found another passion. I’ve created a small post to get you started on your blog: 6 Strategies For Beginners.
Another word about being consistent, if you want to market yourself on social media, don’t limit yourself to one area. Try to look at Twitter and YouTube. I looked up to Casey Neistat. I watched his vlogs till the end. One important thing I noticed was that his success also came from being consistent, publishing his videos every night. I use Twitter for lighter topics, such as a new posting or a saying. You can try posting something on YouTube, such as I published my mother’s Russian recipes. Her recipes are essential to me because I want to show how my mother cooks and I want to document it. I can one day come back to it and try to follow along here.
