Spring Inksgiving is just a week away!
Inksgiving is the perfect time to connect with your readers. Did you know you can set your own personal Ink goals? Or that you can create your own reward system? We wanted to build a system that was as flexible and opened itself up to creative possibilities. So, let's talk about Support Goals and some other practices to make the most out of the Support Program!
Support Goals, or simply, ‘Goal’, is an optional feature of the Tapas Support Program. It allows you to set an Ink goal for yourself and readers to reach together! Saving up for art supplies? Tell your fans your plan and set a goal. Super easy and straightforward. In addition to setting a goal, why not think about setting optional rewards as well? Rewards are a great way to give back to your fans.
There are a ton of creative rewards that we’ve seen creators use on Tapas!
To help get you started, we’ve put together some ideas we’ve seen from the community:
You can always have a simple goal to reach for your own personal reasons! Such as bills, supplies, or just saving up for the future!
Art is hard, time-consuming and draining. But this is your passion and you should be Supported for your efforts. Let your readers cheer you on with their support by reaching a goal to unlock your next episode! This is a great practice that can give you the time that you need to finish those books you have been drawing by hand for the past week, and have that page done by the time your Ink Goal is reached!
Ever wanted to draw your characters in a one-shot Coffee House AU? Or have a one-piece illustration of your OCs in a saucy setting? Set a goal for your supporters to unlock that sweet, sweet bonus material from your series!
There are a ton of different, creative ways to use your goals, if you come up with an exciting way to use it, let us know! We’d love to share it with the creator community.
And if you have Support or Inksgiving related episode, please send it over to MichaelSon@tapasmedia.co as we’ll be featuring a handful of those throughout the event!
Here are some of our favorites so far:
Thanks for making Tapas the wonderful community that it is and we hope that you have a very exciting Spring Inksgiving.
