You hit the nail on the head. More content will turn into more fans and then more sponsors. What is thats saying about all boats rise? LOLI think Lite Brite is a great example of what is possible, I heard a hefty number they received to go race KOH. Their production isn't fancy (not to knock, and the "rougher" shaky camera content is doing best right now) so the "high production cost" excuse isn't valid for small teams, not to mention Litebrite said they make about $7,500 a month just on YouTube only. Few will get that subscriber count, but I think you don't need much more than a GoPro and some effort to crank out content that could increase your value to sponsors, and help support racing.
I think it's really exciting that content creation is offering a different opportunity for awareness to our sport, no more gatekeepers to please. Who cares if ESPN chooses dog racing, we have our own platforms we can attract our genuine audience on.
views yes but do they convert into followers?Just discovered IG reels yesterday. I did a lame one yesterday and it got way more views than any of my normal post. So I need to dial into how that works a little more and do more. I think it’s like a IG version of Tik Tok.
This kind of echoes what Charles Barkley intended when he famously stated in 1993 that he (an NBA player) shouldn't be seen as a role model by kids.... and that they should look to their parents instead. He took a lot of heat for it, explaining in a recent Graham Bensinger interview that he's "the only celebrity who got hate mail for telling kids to listen to their parents".Think it was also mentioned but kids nowadays need immediate feedback. Unless they've grown up in it, I think there's a lot less younger generational peeps that want to put the work necessary in to building, planning, working... if it's not immediate satisfaction, they move on to something else. Gen ADHD.
remember what hillery said, ' it takes a village to raise a child'( And ' village' in the progressive world is big government)This kind of echoes what Charles Barkley intended when he famously stated in 1993 that he (an NBA player) shouldn't be seen as a role model by kids.... and that they should look to their parents instead.

Sorry they did not convert better into follows. I don't think you are doing anything wrong.Thanks for the post Trophy Burro.
but I don’t think it turned into any exposure for us. In the last 7 days I have done a couple post and two reels. With all of that I got 7 followers. Actually lost 5 so a net of 2. Haha clearly I am doing something wrong. And that’s with the Silverstate 300 jump post which I think is a damn cool video.
Mid 8 figures.im old skool, but out of curiosity, what IS that top tier sm / tik tok type making money- wise?,
