How to Build Loyal Fans by Being a Renegade
Believe it or not, being a renegade in the modern world can actually be a good thing – especially if you’re wanting to build up a base of loyal fans. We’re going to go over the things you want to do as well as what you should avoid if you want to use your bad boy image to attract followers on social media networks or anywhere else online or in the physical world. The good news is that if you follow the rules by breaking the rules, you’re going to have a good chance of success.
Building a Fan Base the Renegade Way
Here’s a look at some of the specific ways you can use your renegade spirit to attract followers who will be loyal to you until the very end. If you notice, most of the items below are the opposite of what most people do every day of their lives.
Be Honest – This is tough to do in the modern world, but if you’re really a renegade, you’re going to tell the truth. The benefit of this is that you’re going to stand out from the rest of the crowd. And when people can trust you, they’re going to want to do business with you.
Tell Your Story – Most people are reserved and don’t want anyone knowing anything about them. A renegade will see this as nonsense and tell their story to anyone who will listen. Not everyone will like this, but it can be effective for finding passionate people who will follow you.
Ask for Forgiveness – If you need to ask for forgiveness, don’t be afraid to get on your knees and beg. Most people will tell you this won’t help, but if you’re a renegade at heart, you just might be able to pull it off successfully. And if you can the payoff is going to be huge.
Influence over Impressions – While pageviews and post impressions are good, influence is a lot more powerful. Would you rather have 10,000 followers with one percent converting for you or 1,000 very loyal followers who convert 90% of the time? The latter is going to do more for you in the short term and the long run.
If you’re a true renegade, you’re not going to be interested in hygenic and portable shower blocks or anything close to them! In all seriousness, being a renegade isn’t easy in the modern world that wants everyone to conform to one set of standards or another. On the bright side, this helps those few people who are truly unique to stand out from the crowd. And this can help with building a loyal fan base. Being a renegade does have its downside, but if you play it right, you might be able to build a large enough base of loyal fans that all the haters don’t matter anymore.
