From Snoop Dogg launching a Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC)-themed music NFT to Beeple's "Everydays: The First 5000 Days" selling for an astounding $69 million in 2021, NFTs are taking the digital art space by storm. Non-fungible tokens have made a place for themselves in our digital zeitgeist, inspiring budding artists and online creators around the world to take part in the Web3 movement – regardless of their background or experience.

For those new to the world of NFTs, figuring out how to get started can be overwhelming. After all, what does minting an NFT even mean? Why is cultivating a community important, and why should you think about NFT use cases? To give you a smoother introduction to this exciting new space, we’ve put together five tips that will help you to get started on your journey of becoming an NFT creator. 

What Is An NFT?

A non-fungible token, or NFT, is a cryptographic token that represents ownership of a unique digital asset. Common use cases of NFTs include, art, collectibles, music, in-game items, event tickets, and more. Each NFT has its metadata stored on a blockchain, which ensures verifiable proof of ownership and each token’s uniqueness. 

What Does Minting An NFT Mean? 

In simple terms, minting an NFT is the process of taking a digital file and turning it into a unique token on a blockchain. The data of your digital file is then recorded on a distributed ledger, and it can’t be altered or forged.

How To Get Started As An NFT Creator

Understanding your audience and knowing the value of your work and how to market it are all essential general principles you need to consider as an emerging creator in the Web3 space. Below are more specific tips that can help you pursue these fundamental components of success.

1. Pick your media

Static images are the most common media format used for NFTs, but in fact, the only limit to the form of your artistic expression is your own imagination. There’s no reason why you can’t mint NFTs of videos or songs if the platform you're minting on allows it.   

2. Think about the underlying value 

Before you think about how to price your NFT, it’s good to consider what underpins the value of your unique token. For example, the value of a collectible NFT could be greater and more lasting if it’s tied to a cultural phenomenon that can be expected to stay relevant for a long time. NFTs that come with additional utilities and unique perks, such as ones that offer club memberships or access to exclusive events, can have more long term value if they are associated with robust communities or popular recurring events. 

3. Connect with like-minded people in the space 

No matter what industry you're in, networking is important, especially if you want to get your name out there. In the NFT realm, online platforms like Twitter, Discord, and Telegram are great places to build relationships with fellow creators that are already comfortable with the digital asset space. 

You can start by following artists or NFT projects you like and engaging with their content. Moreover, by participating in conversations, contributing ideas, and answering people's questions, you can gradually become part of a community, opening up opportunities for future collaborations and support.

4. Cultivate your community

Web3 is all about bringing people together online. Cultivating an NFT community requires you to stay connected to your audience via activities such as live streams, AMAs, giveaways, and more. Much like networking with fellow artists, building a community is integral to promoting your work as a Web3 creator. 

Plus, it gives creators new opportunities to forge deeper long-term creator-community relationships across platforms and to connect with fans through more meaningful engagements. It’s also key to successfully marketing your NFTs because making people feel that they are part of a like-minded group is a great way of establishing rapport. 

5. Build up your brand 

Your personal brand may be just as important as the narrative and storytelling behind your NFTs. A strong personal brand is also a part of a successful marketing campaign. The more people resonate with your persona, the more likely they will support your work. At the end of the day, your reputation is another factor that could influence your NFTs’ perceived value and how much people are willing to stand behind your work.
