How to Get More Followers on Peach: 5 Ways

Peach is one of the newest and hottest social media apps, but how do you get more followers on Peach?

How to Get More Followers on Peach

1. Post more often

Peach has a “friend-of-friends” feed that allows you to see what some friends of friends are posting. Appearing regularly in this feed is a great way to build up your friend list. To do that, post often.

Why? Because each new posts brings you to the top of your friend-of-friends feed, the more friends you have, the bigger your extended network. That will likely be your biggest driver of new friends to your Peach account.

2. Use your other social media accounts

You probably already have an existing audience on other social media platforms to help build your Peach following. You can use those other social media platforms to ask people to follow you.

People are looking for people to follow right now. Now is the time to build your following. This could be the next Vine. Remember to accept the people who add you and interact with everyone.

3. Create great content

Like any social media account, you want to create content that people actually want to see, but to get people to follow you, create exclusive content as a way to drive people from platforms like Twitter and Snapchat into Peach.

Ideas for exclusive content could be insider photos or information that you only share on Peach or even a contest or giveaway to give people a reason to follow you there and interact with you. That brings us to engagement.

4. Be engaged with your followers

Like Facebook, users have “friends” on Peach and you must be friends with someone to “like” or comment on their posts. Users can also interact with each other via a multi-faceted interaction menu, similar to Facebook’s old Poke feature, friends can wave, boop and send cake to each other.

5. Break content up into smaller chunks

Peach encourages the easy sharing of video, images, gifs and even user-created drawings. The real differentiating factor in the app are Slack-like commands called “Magic Words”. One thing you can do to boost engagement is to break content up into 2–3 short posts instead of one longer one.

If you have a longer post, try breaking up your posts into 2–3 sections. This lets you appear more times in the feed and thus fuels the “friend-of-friends” feed mentioned in point number 1: Post more often. Happy Peaching!

On Facebook Acquisitions, Predicting the Future, and Messaging

In the book, How to Fly a Horse: The Secret History of Creation, Invention, and Discovery, I learned that people aren’t very good at predicting the future, but they are okay at predicting the next thing. Our brains just aren’t wired to take 2 steps at once, but we can make 1 step + 1 more step fairly easily. Because this explanation sounds dumb, you know that it’s true. Let me give you an example from the book:

Hand a person a box of tacks, a book of matches, and a candle. Ask them to mount the candle on the wall.

Most people first start by making a shelf of tacks on the wall and then attempting to mount the candle on the shelf. Once they realize the box is empty and they see the shelf they think: I can use the box as a shelf and they correctly mount the box to the shelf with the tacks and put the candle in the box.

Facebook bought Oculus Rift. Facebook bought Whatsapp.

Months later we are just now seeing how those first steps are leading to the next steps. Oculus Rift lets people experience virtual worlds with other, real people in real-time. Whatsapp is a messenger platform. Facebook is a social media platform, which also features a heavy game element and already had Messenger. Messaging is already a bigger platform worldwide than social media and is set to grow. Gaming platforms like Steam, Xbox Live, and Battle.net are likely where Facebook is headed with their VR set, but I’m guessing they will have a live-meeting aspect as well.

I’m rambling now. I don’t know anything. Here’s what I know:

When I was young I used to have a third place to call my own. It was called “The Blue Lounge“. When that was threatened, I built an outdoor Blue Lounge. When that was taken away, I kept looking. I kept looking for a place that I could meet my friends and have a conversation. I dreamed of a day where I could virtually sit in a room with people just like I could back in the Blue Lounge. Now that day may be approaching.

But what about coffee?

I hear you. Get coffee together when you can. We’re not animals. Get out of your storage shed, onto your motorbike, and get down to The Raft to be with other people now and again. It’s good for you – and you just might save the world.

How to Get Started as a Freelance Marketer

Recently I got asked how to start freelancing doing marketing with a focus on social media, email marketing, and blogger outreach:

Hey Erich! So I’m trying to venture out on my own with freelance marketing specially focusing on social media, email marketing and blogger outreach. Joy mentioned you might be able to give me some tips on how you got your clients so I thought I would ask!!

Yeah, I agree with Joy. That’s a great idea. When I first started all I had was a website and that worked for a while, but that’s not enough anymore. You’ll have to be much more direct.

I’d recommend identifying the type of customer you’d like to work for, something very specific you can do for them, and then be laser-focused on contacting them.

For example, let’s say you wanted to sell your services to a business owner you know. You ask around, search the Internet, and you find their email address. Then you upload it to Facebook as a custom audience and make an ad that only appears on their Facebook feed.

Another approach is to start to tell people stories about how you solved a problem and that you’re looking for other people to help in the same way. Use these stories on your website and in conversations with people you meet.

That brings us to the third leg: networking. Find out where your customers meet outside of work and go there. Get involved. Tell your story. Offer value upfront. Give your best ideas away for free. If you have enough ideas, write a book down (10-40k words is enough) and have it printed at createspace.com. Now you’re an expert. You wrote a book on the subject.

Host a live teaching event and charge people to show up. This is not to make money, but to show that your time is valuable and to filter out people who don’t have money.

Lastly, there are lists where you can sign up to bid on marketing jobs such as thumbtack.com. Hope that helps.
