How do I get on the allowlist??

Here are 13 ways to get early access to the hottest collections like Cool Pets by @coolcatsnft or @InvsbleFriends BEFORE they mint...

(Thread πŸ§΅πŸ‘‡πŸ»)
1/Invest in big collections with active communities

One of the best things about NFTs is how tight knit and collaborative the community is. Projects often work together & provide allowlists to each other. Investing in a big collection may get you access to private giveaways- NFA
Tip: If big projects are out of budget, look for opportunities to mint smaller growing projects as they may have allocations too. S/O to @LittlelemonsNFT @thelittlesnft

But if you don't have the money to do that, don't worry! There are many more ways... πŸ™‚
2/Use your skills (Do the 1% more)

Usually standing out just takes the 1% more. What skills do you have that can help add to the collection's community? Maybe it's creating a custom graphic or recording a fan made video or custom stickers, etc. Think outside the box! πŸ’₯
For example: @PAPERDIAMOND saw @CoolmanUniverse on our founder @jakeudell social media... He immediately used his 3D skills to whip up Spesh on a rocketship and earn his allowlist spot. πŸš€

3/Art Contests + Meme Contests

Actually participate in contests. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t have the particular skills. Try using if you have the ideas πŸ’‘

Collections love content generated by the community... Pro Tip: Don't wait for a contest! 🎨
4/Do the Mods Job (Be Active)

Put yourself in the moderator's shoes and help them do their jobs. Promoting the project, answering questions, building the vibe. Give value to get value. πŸ’«
5/Plug into alpha groups

It’s impossible to keep track of everything in the space alone. Create group chats, work with friends, build a team. Metalink is a great place to start. If budget allows, there are also paid groups you can plug into. S/O @AlphaMintNFT (not a paid promo)
6/Search for links in groups

Many projects are now using to organize their pre-mints so do a search periodically in your groups to make sure you don’t miss one.
7/Share alphas when you have them!

If you encounter some alpha share it with your groups. The more you share the more others will share with you! πŸ€—
8/Plug into the creator community

Try plugging into creator communities & identifying new creators early. There are often builder channels inside of each community so can start there & network out. If you help build a collection from the beginning, you'll always be on the list🎧
9/🚨 Launchpad 🚨

10/Leverage collection aggregation sites

Use or to see upcoming projects early...
11/Follow the most active voices in the space (and turn on notifications!)

Influencers get pitched projects often, are working on their own projects, and are plugged into alpha groups where they hear about things early. ⏰
12/Maximize your holder perks

Make sure you are taking advantage of all the perks you get from holding an NFT. Make a list of all the projects you’re in and check daily to see if there are new giveaways or collabs. πŸ—£
13/Twitter Giveaways

With this strategy, you'll have to get lucky πŸ€

But it's still worth a chance! πŸ™‚

Twitter giveaways from reputable accounts can deliver your golden ticket. 🎟

In summary:

Leverage the collective mind 🧠
Access begets more access πŸ—
Give value to get value ⚑️
