Or if you don’t want to join any of these, start your own channel!

Leverage Power Profiles

The @dwr Power: The @dwr.eth account is a great example of a high-engagement profile. Find similar channels in your niche and collaborate! Some of our favorites: @Jesse of Variant; @Jessepollak of Coinbase.

Engage with Subject Matter Experts

Identify 10 accounts in your field and actively engage with their posts. Leave thoughtful comments, answer questions, and participate in discussions. Here's a bonus tip: follow accounts that complement your expertise, not directly compete with it.

Follow-Gate Your Frames

Create valuable, informative and composable frames (think blog posts or infographics) and offer them as gated content. Users will need to follow you to unlock the goodies. This is a great way to incentivize followers while providing high-quality content. I.e. listen to  Wu-Tang Clan’s Once Upon a Time in Shaolin gated by NFTs on base (in time for onchain summer…more on this later).

Be Instantly Recognizable

Having a memorable profile picture (PFP) and handle is crucial for standing out in the Farcasterverse. 2 letter and 3 letter domains are great. Funny 1-lines are also attractive.
