Since the emergence of social media as a place for marketing a brand and connecting with fans, I felt the need to grow an active audience taking a step further. I've always talked about how we can find fans and connect with them on deeper level. I've gotten inspired from a few entrepreneurs over the internet. I've been trying to put together an online web series and as a result it's a bit difficult to tell who our real fans are.
Last year we created a membership called #Invaders, it's essentially a membership for those who want to financially support our design show Great Spaces. As a result, I found a few members as I put forth the effort to gain a small following. I then quit that model because I was paying 60 dollars a month and would only gain 20 dollars from the 10 dollar membership sign up. So..I felt this forfeited the complete control of a digital business, earning a mere fraction of the worth without any substantial equity in the relationships established.
These third party platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have unlimited access to the real-time trends, engagement metrics and performance reports that needs to be more developed on a deeper understanding of consumer behavior. There has to be a better way to engage fans, real fans. So I've decided to design a data driven online TV network based on a mobile-driven foundation.
With that said, I am interested in real people not just followers. Followers can give likes, shares and retweets. I am more interested in actually people going in their pockets to support us...so we can email or text them to say thank you personally. As a creator, your fans are your lifeblood. This is the community that will allow us to do what we do. As an artist or influencer, your fans are your lifeblood. We are all entrepreneurs now, which means your network is your net worth. It's your supporters who will get you to the next level. The goal of every interaction with a fan or supporter is to make them a friend. Making sure that we build deeper relationships every step of the way.
