Once you hit your first 50 follows or views trying to grow from there can be hard. You sit and smack yourself with your keyboard wondering what you are doing wrong. You don’t know where to go now for a small boost in traffic to your stream. Although it’s entertaining we must ask that you STOP HITTING YOURSELF! Now that your all bruised up we have compiled a short and sweet list of links that will help you in Growing Your Content.
What you will be spending most of your time off stream doing is networking with other people. The best place to network is within communities (Zexie allows networking with others in discord). We give you the tools you need and the boost you deserve for your content! There is some things to keep in mind when you are networking with other creators both on/off discords.
Follow these simple steps to get the most out of your time in others communities
- Stay respectful & follow the sites/communities rules.
As leaders in multiple communities we see a ton of people full of toxicity who think they are going places. Respect goes a long way no matter where you are in life. Plus nobody wants to hear your furry jokes.
- Don’t Spam
Post the link to your stream/content once per stream. MAYBE twice if you are doing something rather big and want to remind everyone. Spamming anywhere will get you hated by everyone.
- BE FRIENDLY
Stay active on the websites and discords you use. Talk with everyone and help people out if you can. It is a proven fact that by helping others and being friendly you get quicker support or traffic to your platform.
- Act like you matter/Show Positivity
You will always get that one person every now and then with a life goal of getting you down. This is OKAY, as everyone gets downed sooner or later. Generally speaking whether it is in real life or the creator world you want to stay positive. Even if you feel like you don’t matter and no one cares (which you DO matter and WE care). It is vital to your image and your stream that you spread positive vibes. Networking is key to growing, never forget this!
What Is Networking?
Networking is about building relationships. You can’t just post your link somewhere and expect results. You have to keep at it with the same group of people and become what some would say a known face in their community. The 3 biggest end games you want when building relationships are hosts, raids, and most importantly friendship! Be sure to keep an open mind about other peoples view on subjects. Being rude, selfish and/or bashing others won’t get you no where.
When you are networking you need to get into the professional state of mind. Remember your running your own business! That is what being a content creator is, working for yourself. You can only get results if you put the hard work in. Don’t sell yourself short with your business. Dedication here is key to properly networking within different communities. Now it’s time to get those amazing links to help in Growing Your Stream.
