NSFW Boot Camp Week 3: Growing your audience through social media and helpful tools for creators



This week we will be learning how to grow your NSFW brand and audience through social media. Learn what platforms are best for what content, how to advertise NSFW on SFW platforms, and the use of hashtags.


To start.... What are some of the best social media platforms for NSFW creators?


Twitter - or as we now call it “X” is the most adult friendly social media platform. Twitter will censor content with a warning that may be graphic, but most can be unblurred by accepting and continuing anyways. Posts should be simple and short and also include a few hashtags that are relevant and/or trending to help users find and follow your accounts.


Instagram - Instagram is another good platform for creators to reach new fans and followers. Although not as NSFW friendly as Twitter - Instagram still reaches a wide range of followers and viewers based on algorithms and user preferences. It is important to tag your posts on Instagram - especially when first starting out. I encourage creators to use the maximum of 30 hashtags on each post when starting out to reach a wider audience and to attract new followers and viewers to your pages. But, be mindful - Instagram is one of the safer for work platforms that will easily flag you for anything sexual at all - including text and links to adult websites. You also cannot post links in your captions/comments - so stick to using the "link" button feature in your story to link fans directly to your pages.

Snapchat - Snapchat is one of my favorite ways to reach new viewers, advertise and stay engaged with my current subscribers and share pics and videos as teasers to get viewers to purchase and subscribe. You can also sell a "premium snapchat" - that will allow subscribers to see exclusive content - similar to any other PPV service. You would create a "free" snapchat - and then charge users to access your "private premium" snapchat account. Snapchat also has video calling features and helps users stay connected in real time without a lot of lag time. You can decide if you want to charge and offer video call services/shows.


Make posts that’s will help viewers and followers understand you. Do you like art? Travel? Dogs? Share that with the world and let others get to love you for who you really are. Create an authentic presence online and do things that are enjoyable for you on and off screen.


Have a call to action. It is Important to remember to have a call to action in your posts. “If you like what you see - follow me for more” - “check my bio link” “like and share”. These are good examples of how you can requests viewers to engage with you to increase your traffic.


Engage with your followers - respond to every comment, like, message, share and follow. Not only will this excite your followers that you are indeed, a real person - this also will help your algorithms on each platform to reach new viewers. Accounts with higher engagement generally receive more views across social platforms. Each time I receive a new follow - I send a welcome message and my allmylinks (link manager) so they can follow me on all my socials and subscribe to any premium accounts.


Like & Follow - Get new traffic to your pages by liking and following accounts that might be interested in following you back. One trick is to follow a similar content creator to you - check their "followers", and then like and engage back with their followers to get them to check out and follow your pages back. You can also reach out to creators and ask for things like "share for shares" and shoutouts (see next)


SFS - Share for Share - collaborate with other content creators and exchange sharing a post for a post to reach new followers through other networks and communities.
