We here at so.fa.dog are firm believers that more often than not, it’s best to start with the basics. The fundamentals. The A&O, if you will.
And what’s more basic than asking, Who are you? What is it that you do? And most importantly, Why should I care?
That’s exactly what we’re going to answer in today’s post. To be more specific, we’re going to answer two of the most basic, yet undeniably most important questions about our app. The first one we’re going to tackle is, you guessed it: What is so.fa.dog? The second one, Why should I care? might sound a bit harsh, but that’s exactly why it needs an answer. So let’s get to it!
To make things a bit easier, we created this nifty little video to help you out. We’re a video app, after all!
Everything clear? Great! Now you know what so.fa.dog is, and why you should care. Feel free to exit out of this blog post, and check out our app instead.
Want to know a bit more? Great! Keep on reading and you’ll be a What is so.fa.dog?-pro once we’re done here.
What Is so.fa.dog?
As we beautifully, eloquently, and, truth be told, very officially put, so.fa.dog is a passion economy marketplace designed to bring together content creators and their fans.
So…what exactly does this mean?
Let’s expand a bit.
If you’re a content creator, you know very well how hard it can be to make a living. Sure, if you’re big enough (and by big we mean HUGE), you’ll get certain benefits from platforms such as YouTube, but if you don’t exactly have millions of followers, you’re left pretty much on your own.
For you, it’s mostly about keeping up appearances for brand deals’ sake, and whatever little ad revenue shares you can get. And if you’re doing niche content, resonating only to a very specific and/or very small audience, you’re in even less luck.
This is precisely the reason why we created the so.fa.dog app. We believe content creators should receive fair pay for all the hard work they put into their videos. That’s why we’re huge fans of paid subscriptions, and believe a paid subscription is the fairest and also the easiest, most direct way to monetize content.
So How Does it Work?
Well, it all comes down to two things: the phenomena known as passion economy, and a creator’s most valuable asset—their fans.
We talked about passion economy HERE, but to sum it up, passion economy is about turning the creator’s passion into a livelihood by creating valuable content for a group of like-minded people—their true fans.
These true fans—the ones who are willing to give a little extra for the content you produce—are also the ones willing to pay for your so.fa.dog content. Just invite them over and see what happens. We dare you!
The good news is that with paid subscriptions, you don’t need millions, trillions or quadrillions of fans to make a living. Even 100 (yup, you read that right) true fans can provide a steady income. We wrote about it in detail HERE.
As for the practical side of things, it’s fairly simple. Just create a so.fa.dog account, set a monthly subscription price, and start posting the type of content your fans are not only willing, but also glad to pay for. Your fans are your biggest supporters, so we’d suggest creating something especially awesome, just for them.
Why Should I Care?
Well…don’t you think it’s fair to get paid for your hard work?
Don’t you think it’s best to get paid in a direct, transparent and easy way?
Yeah, we think so, too.
We’re so used to YouTubers this, TikTokers that. We’re so used to what a creator *should* be that we sometimes disregard what a creator *could* be.
We believe in a new era where everyone can be a creator. As long as you have a topic you care about, a group of like-minded people, and a will to create, there’s nothing that should stop you from doing so.
And while you’re at it, get paid for it, as well.
