Increasing Your Popularity is Incredibly Easy

So, you want to be more popular? Sometimes you just have to think outside the box. Here are 5 easy hacks you can use that will increase your online popularity.
1.) Make a Video (or Two)
Making a video for your fans can dramatically increase your online popularity. Photos are of course the #1 way to show off what you do, but producing a weekly or bi-monthly video for your fans will not only keep you first and foremost in their minds, but increase time spent on your Facebook or website. Remember-When your fans are on your site or Facebook, they aren’t on the website of your competitors. Friendly, fun videos are a way to connect with the people who can not only spread the word about you, but also to be there when you need them for model contest votes, buying your posters and prints and much, much more.
British Model, Willow Rose knows how to win fans and influence people. This is just one of her great quality videos where she provides her viewers with the three necessary ingredients for a successful fan video.
1.) She greets the viewer and makes them feel welcome (Probably the most important thing you can do)
2.) She doesn’t waste time and gets right to the point (Viewers don’t watch boring videos)
3.) She knows her product (herself) and she knows how to to display it. (She gives her fans what they want)
2.) Create a Chat
Chatting with your fans for 30 minutes on a weekly basis is a fantastic method for increasing your online cred. Set up a chat on TinyChat and let your fans know when you’ll be live to take their questions and read their comments. Remember to schedule a few chats to accommodate different time zones. Make sure your chats are on at the same time and day each week, so your fans will tune in on a regular basis.
3.) Get a Tumblr Account
Do this as soon as you finish this article. A Tumblr account for a model, is as necessary as a microphone to a singer. Sure, Facebook is king and Twitter may be queen, but Tumblr is the little engine who could. Besides being stupidly simple, the best thing about Tumble is its sharing options. Reblogs can blow up into the hundreds of thousands. Share content you think your followers would not only enjoy, but reblog. As great as Tumblr may be, the process of getting followers can be slow. Be sure to let your Facebook fans know about your Tumblr page and remember to talk about it in your next fan vid.
4.) Get a Facebook Page
Although this sounds like a total no brainer, I was actually surprised at the number of models I’ve worked with who do not have a separate Facebook page (or fan page) for their modeling careers. Do it now. The reasons for getting a fan page are numerous. Here are the top 3.
- It’s safer
- You can use your professional name instead of your real name.
- It’s more professional and you can customize it easily.
Remember to NOT include any family type pics (family, boyfriend, girlfriend,spouse, etc.) on your fan page. Keep your personal relationships away from your fans. Your fans have a secret fantasy of being in a relationship with you ( in a way, they already are) and they won’t appreciate constant talk about your real lover. It’s enough to simply say, “I’m taken.”
5.) Post 2 Selfies Daily
This is the easiest thing you can do to increase your online popularity and it only takes a second. Snap a couple of pics with your phone and post them at the same time everyday. Fans LOVE new pics and after you start posting them daily, they’ll come to expect them and they’ll be sure to make it a point to see them. The trick here, is to post them in only one place. Whether you choose Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc., doesn’t matter. Just make sure it’s on the page you need the most activity. Remember: The photos don’t have to be professional for your fans to appreciate them.
