How Creators Can Mint Invitation NFTs on Uncut.FM for Their Creative Projects
An original idea from Chris Koronowski
Sometimes a creator can be a lone wolf. They can create dazzling and brilliant shows, art, products, and services entirely by themselves, share it with their fans, and reap the rewards. But let’s be frank. Most of us can’t possibly do everything ourselves. Indeed, to be truly successful, I believe that most creators actually need a great deal of input from other creative people.
So, what’s an extremely cool way that a creator like you can invite other creators to participate in your projects?
If you’re a web3 enthusiast (you’re into token-based economics, decentralization, and blockchain technologies) plus you’re also a creator (you’re a writer, videographer, streamer, publisher, podcaster, or influencer), have you considered creating individual NFTs for the people you want to work with?
To learn about a potent real-life use case of this idea, I read this post and this post by Chris Koronowski. In those posts, Koronowski details how he invited 20 people to be guests on his “Web3 Doers” podcast by creating each potential guest an individual NFT. A simple idea brilliantly executed, in my opinion.
If you’d like to invite people to collaborate with you on your projects, here’s a step-by-step process of how you can create your invitation NFTs that relate to work.
1. Decide who you want to invite as guests to be on your project.
3. Create various animations for each individual guest.
4. On Uncut.FM, create an NFT collection with a name that relates to your work (e.g. the name of your live stream, the name of your podcast, etc.)
5. Mint each NFT. This will include inputting all of the details from steps 1 to 3 above into Uncut.FM’s platform. With each NFT, be sure to include a hidden invitation that details the next steps for each creator.
6. Do marketing and promotion. Crucially, this should involve publicly posting about your invitations, and tagging potential guests in your posts. In your post (or Tweet, or whatever), be sure to:
State that your post is an invitation to other creators to collaborate with you on your project, appear on your show, etc.
Describe your project, show, etc.
List some reasons why the creators you’ve listed would enjoy being involved in your project, show, etc.
Name each creator, and link to their profile or tag their username.
7. When individuals claim their NFT, be sure that they’ve got all the info they need on how best to collaborate with you.
If you do this, let me know how it goes!
One last thing, I got the idea for this article from two posts by Chris Koronowski, which you can read here and here. By the way, Koronowski encouraged anyone to “steal” his idea, which I did, with big props to him.
