So, you’ve joined Clowdy, and you’re attracting followers and publishing great Clowds.
But you want to reach even more people, and have your Clowd featured as a Staff Pick?
Well, as you may have noticed, we recommend certain profiles to new users when they join. These artists are also recommended to users via email, and along with Staff Picks on the Discover page, it’s a great way to have both you, and your Clowds, found.
We’ve compiled a few tips on how to become one of Clowdy’s recommended followers and a Staff Pick.
- If your profile looks good, it gets attention. You could easily be amazing or terrible at what you do but having a good looking profile gives people the incentive to find out. That means having a good description, profile picture, cover photo and plenty of Credits.
- Credit other people that worked on your Clowd such as the filmmaker or the vocalist and of course don’t forget to Credit yourself. Profiles open up at the Credits tab so nobody will see anything unless you’ve Credited.
- Make sure you have detailed Clowd descriptions complete with hashtags. It helps the discovery process. Think of a hashtag as a way to categorise your Clowd. #Alternative
- Finally, and most importantly, we recommend the very best creativity on Clowdy. Pictures of your cat or a shaky phone recording of you on karaoke night just doesn’t cut the mustard.
Here’s a great example of a Recommended Follower’s Profile Page.
We don’t judge on the amount of followers you have. Whether you already have 400 followers, or just 4, if you publish great Clowds and follow the above guidelines, there’s an excellent chance we will feature you as a recommended follower and your Clowd as a Staff Pick.
Time to get creative!
