Building a following online takes a lot of work. It basically requires running your own mini production studio with all the planning and preparation of maintaining a content schedule. Between videos, articles, images — and of course, promotion — it can quickly become a full-time job. Engaging an audience is a lot of work!
These micro-celebrities are the influencers and tastemakers of our era. They have growing followings, get sponsorships from large brands, and are the unofficial entertainers of the internet. And they’re not as distant as the celebrities of yesteryear. Many of them make a point to interact directly with their followers, although in-depth interactions remain quite difficult.
The idea is simple: fans pose questions to their favorite creators, who (for a small fee) create a personalized video response.
Most content creators have difficulty cultivating a minimum level of engagement with their audience and wind up with limited profit streams to show for their work. And of course, there’s the never-ending task of developing content for a hungry audience. Partelo aims to help with all of this. By signing up to the Partelo platform creators open up a new channel for their followers to interact with them. They can set a fee for people to buy a fun video response, which both gives them another way to make money, and fascinating and very relational content for all their followers. They can do so quickly by receiving a new question, making a video response, and sending.
For all of us fans, Partelo lets us interact in a very real way with our favorite internet stars. With questions typically priced at a couple dollars each, you can ask your most pressing question to the icons of your choice. If they accept, you’re guaranteed a response and can get your own 15 minutes of fame if you allow them to share it.
Compared to Patreon by YouTuber Nick Nimmin, Partelo differs in that you don’t need to subscribe as a monthly supporter. You simply pay a one-time fee to get your response, shout-out, or another reward. It’s an on-the-go platform for those wanting to connect with their favorite personalities of the web.
It’s worth noting, Partelo isn’t limited to juggernaut influencers; the platform works just as well for someone with a few followers as it does for those who have a fan base of millions. Signing up is quick and easy; anyone can get going on it. Partelo only collects a fee when questions are submitted, which is more than fair since their service helps everyone involved. Initially designed for YouTube, it’s also a fan-engagement platform for Twitter, Instagram, and Twitch. Whether you’re a revered internet celeb or a hobbyist vlogger, Partelo is one of the most promising new ways to interact with your followers online.
And the added income never hurts.
