NFT FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
There are a lot of NFT influencers on YouTube channels talking about web 3.0, but to find the right ones you must DYOR (Do Your Own Research). There is little information about it on the web, but there are specialized crypto marketing agencies like the Blue Manakin where we DOR (Do Our Research) and now we have an extensive database to provide the best influencers to our customers.
The first thing you can do to find the right influencers is search #NFT on Twitter and explore. It is a jungle out there, which means you´ll find a lot of fake interactions and numbers. Do the same on TikTok and Instagram and you´ll find some interesting profiles. Many times you´ll find NFT micro-influencers and they can also work because they have an organic audience. It is a long process as many accounts are fake and may try to scam you. This is why at the Blue Manakin we have a thorough process to search and find quality influencers that deliver organic and real numbers that along with our strategies will take your project to another level.
Before you decide how to promote your NFT art, or where to promote it, you need to know that the most important and difficult thing to do in an NFT Project is to build a strong community. Discord is the best way to do this, using different channels, creating conversations and raffles, and most importantly, making sure everyone becomes friends. There is nothing that brings more confidence to a project than the presence of the founders.
Communities are not so easy to build. To have a community you need members with a legit interest in your project. To locate them, you have to work on a social media strategy to find a way to share your message with the world. Once you have a couple of integrants you need to work on a strategy to keep them engaged so they will welcome new members and share a passion for your project. At the Blue Manakin, we help you with all the strategies you need, from social media to every Discord channel, we can help your community to grow and to skyrocket your project.
There is no such thing as an influencer marketplace or platform available. For now, the best social media for finding NFT promoters is Twitter. Here you will encounter a lot of promotions, giveaways, and shilling from different Crypto and NFT projects. These promoters usually offer other services on other platforms, but Twitter is the crib of crypto promoters at the moment. YouTube has some relevant promoters that are also worth taking a look at. The best way to make sure that a promoter is legit is by looking at websites such as Social Blade, where the promoters receive a score based on the engagement that they have. However, it is always important to do your research. For example, an influencer on Social Blade might have a low score because of his low engagement, but maybe that low engagement is full of potential buyers. Quality is more important than quantity.
An NFT influencer agency works in the same way as a celebrity agency. It is a group of influencers that have the same manager, who is in charge of scheduling the promotional posts. To find the best influencer agency you can start off by searching influencers and if they have an agency they´ll redirect you to it. This way you ensure the agency has accounts that you may like. Every promoter can offer a different price and services, but if you work with an agency, you can hire a package that includes all the influencers at once. At the Blue Manakin, we sometimes use this strategy to do massive promotion campaigns.
There are different factors that affect an influencers´ price. You need to take into account the type of service you are requesting; are you looking for an ambassador? A retweet? A tweet? A giveaway? An Instagram story? The possibilities are endless as you can mix and match on different platforms. It is also incredibly important to take into account the number of real followers, interactions, and trustability. At the Blue Manakin, we help you find the right influencer to reach your target audience according to your budget.
There are a lot of accounts dedicated only to crypto and NFTs on Twitter and Instagram where you can find everything from news and announcements of new projects to collections and influencers selected to promote them. Some clear examples are @nftpays, @nftinsideres, @sharecrypto, @nft.analyst, @nft.wire, and @nft.magazine. There is little information about it on the web, but there are specialized crypto marketing agencies like the Blue Manakin where we have an extensive database with a list of NFT influencers with different price ranges and target audiences. From Solana influencers to Ethereum, our database helps us deliver the best service to our customers.
Looking in the search bar for words like “”NFT”” “”CRYPTO”” and “”NFT PROJECT”” you will see groups and accounts that are related to the NFT world. Sounds obvious, but you need a hawkeye when you search for your perfect influencers. Many groups are only for talking about NFT related subjects, not for promotions and shilling. Depending on what you are looking for, you may have to look for specific groups that announce real projects with a relevant engagement. Also, look for accounts that offer whitelist spots, giveaways, and rewards, these accounts could help with your project.
To avoid fake promotion accounts you have to look at the comments on every post, are the users real? Do the users that comment make relevant comments about the project? Are they interested in investing in crypto projects?
LinkedIn is not a social network that works for promoting NFT projects. The crypto market moves to other platforms like Discord, Telegram, Twitter, and Instagram. On LinkedIn, there is a more professional feel and NFT projects and influencers tend to be more casual which is why you don’t see the same engagement as on other social platforms.

“NFT influencer promotion or influencer marketing is one of the most effective tools for the promotion of a new NFT collection. It consists of the mention or positive review by the NFT influencer of a collection or new project.
NFT influencers´ marketing has a significant impact on the promotion of an NFT collection, around 90% greater than NFT promotion in conventional media. The great advantage of promoting an NFT through influencers is that their community, previously segmented and highly specialized in non-fungible tokens, takes note of each novelty presented in the channel.

Quora is a social network for sharing and answering questions. If you have doubts about something, you really like a subject and want to know more, or you just want to learn new things; Quora is the ideal space and is the next step to what was Yahoo Answers. Quora works very simply and is similar to Reddit, you follow the topics you like and you have a feed. In these, there are hundreds of questions that you can answer and get upvotes and downvotes so that when a user enters the question your answer appears at the beginning or the end. How to promote my crypto project in Quora?
- Search for areas and questions related to the project you have, whether it’s an NFT, an ICO, IDO, or any crypto project.
- Find questions that don’t have many answers, so you can position yourself first without the need to have many upvotes.
- Check the questions that have the most upvotes and leave your answers.
- Create your answers with passion and be forceful.
- Create posts and questions as if you were going to search them on Google, so anyone who searches for them will find them directly. You can also create questions about your project.
At the Blue Manakin, we have SEO experience to generate questions and answers that will give your project more visibility.
The way the NFT community moves around Reddit is through forums called subreddits. The community in the subreddit participates by sharing a project, discussing some news, or showing their work. Once you finish reading the post you can decide between giving it an upvote or a downvote, this will make the post go up or down in the subreddit. So the best way to promote NFT on Reddit is to search the subreddit related to the subject and make a striking post to get upvotes.
Sometimes to post on a subreddit you are asked for certain age and karma, which you can earn as you participate in the communities, making posts and comments. At the Blue Manakin we have the age and karma to promote your projects on the best subreddits.
Telegram is one of the main platforms when it comes to the crypto world, both for NFTs and for Cryptocurrencies, and it works perfectly. Telegram is the direct contact with the community. The main difference with Discord is that here you can focus the communication only on the people who are interested in your project, taking advantage of the pinned message function to share project updates. Another way to do NFT Telegram marketing is by shilling your project into the best Telegram groups that exist related to the topic.
At the Blue Manakin, we know the best groups for shilling and we can moderate your Telegram group.
