On FANBOX, the types of posts for each plan (price tier) differ depending on the creator. Here, we'll give a rough overview of each genre.
Illustrators often post making-of journals, rough sketches, or time-lapse videos of the making of the work. It's not absolutely necessary to post the completed illustration. Your fans will be very happy to see your concepts for your next work, learn about the types of brush settings you use, or hear about your feelings regarding your work.
If you plan on posting high-quality content such as PSD files or other files that are closer to the size of the original work, we recommend you offer these at a higher priced plan, because they demonstrate your skills and discernment as an illustrator. Doing so will help prevent your work from being re-posted or otherwise misused.
Manga artists not only post new work, but also storyboards, doujinshi they have created in the past, designs for characters who didn't fit into the story to the extent they'd hoped, and other content.We recommend that you post content exclusively to your supporters on FANBOX in advance of posting it elsewhere.Posting your thoughts about manga you've recently read will also keep your fans engaged.
VTubers and Live Streamers
Most people post diaries or voice recordings as their main content. Voiceover content is particularly popular. Posting voice-acting clips, dramatic readings, bonus videos, or other voice-acting content that you didn't put on YouTube will often go a long way to gain you more supporters.
In addition, you can up the uniqueness of your performances by offering rarer opportunities for your supporters, under a higher-priced plan where fans can enjoy perks such as playing video games with you, talking to you via voice chat, requesting specific voiceovers, or other bonuses.
You can offer your supporters information on how you made each song, the feelings you were trying to express with your songs, or other making-of content, or you can upload your songs to your supporters before you release them to the general public, to build a continuing bond with your fans.
You can also offer presale tickets to your shows exclusively to your supporters, or offer to list your supporters' names in your album booklets, to make your supporters feel special.
Game Developers and Programmers
Most creators who are engineers or who do game development and programming don't solicit support based on the content they post to FANBOX, but instead ask for simple donations.
We recommend that game developers post progress reports, behind-the-scenes stories, announcements, or promotional blog post-style content.Game developers can also release beta versions in advance to their supporters, or add their supporters to the credit list for the work.
FANBOX supports not only creators of digital (virtual) content, but also many creators of analog (real) content such as chefs and craftspeople.
Analog creators can share similar content to digital creators: posts about the making of the work, concepts for future work, recipes or secret tips and tricks, etc.Analog creators can also offer supporter-exclusive personal advice or online seminars.
However, the types of posts we listed here are only a few examples of what creators can do with FANBOX.
Supporting your favorite creators on FANBOX or searching for creators on FANBOX who make work that's similar to yours will help give you an idea of how to use FANBOX in a way that's right for you. Putting yourself in the position of a supporter will give you a new perspective.
