So you’ve set up your Tartl profile, you’ve uploaded links to your work, you’ve added all the different levels of subscribers and listed the various benefits each level gets. But you’re still not seeing results?
Don’t panic. You are not fizzling out, you do have a following, you just have to find them and get them to your Tartl page.
Promoting yourself isn’t an easy thing to do. We know how awkward it feels to be tooting your horn but hey, all publicity is good publicity right? Instead of hiding behind your brushes, your guitar pick, your podcasting microphone, take out your phone and promote!
The first thing to do is to make sure you’ve actually told people you have a Tartl page. How often do you put your content out? Is it every week? Every month? If you don’t put out content regularly you might not have informed all your followers and supporters that you have a Tartl page. If they don’t know, how can they follow. Make sure you regularly, maybe once a week, post about your Tartl page on your social media pages so people can follow you here as well.
- Mix Up The Rewards
Different levels of subscribers get different incentives but your subscribers aren’t all that happy with the incentives you’re offering. You need to make sure that you offer them something enticing enough for them to think about subscribing to you on another platform. Whatever that may be for your particular form of art, music, art, writing, special podcast episodes, etc, make sure it is something that is interesting enough for them to think about supporting you.
- Be Vulnerable
There is nothing wrong with being open with your supporters about why you need their support? Did you get laid off? Do you have a big expense coming up? Or maybe you just want to create your art on your terms without having to compromise on your integrity as a creator. Whatever your reason for being on Tartl, share it with them. You’ll be surprised how far you get when you open up yuur heart to your supporters.
- Promote! Promote! Promote!
You don’t need to spam your followers but you do need to make sure that your presence is more than a dot in the background. You need to be loud when promoting your work. You aren’t going to get followers by being shy so scream out your passions on all your social media pages, reach out to similar creatives, do a collaboration, whatever it is that gets you and your work out there, do it within reason. Soon you’ll realise that you were worried for no reason.
Don’t fret. Just create.
