How to create an NFT collection
Let’s look at the basic steps that will help you create and launch your own NFT collection.
This is a rather interesting and entertaining process, which in the future may also be profitable, although no one guarantees this.
When creating an NFT, the author sets the initial sale price, as well as royalties – what percentage of royalties he will receive from resales.
So, the key steps are:
Development of a recognizable and interesting concept.
The tokens themselves, the website, marketing, and the style of communication with customers should fit into it.
Here you need to consider what new features will be available to NFT holders over time. It is also necessary to plan what share of the funds from the sold NFTs will go to the development of the project.
Creation of images, animations, video, or audio underlying the tokens.
Typically, code is used to generate from various predefined components, and you can specify the degree of each component.
Coding a smart contract to generate NFTs based on given items.
Almost every NFT collection has items programmed to be unique from others. These items usually cost more than the minimum price.
You need to build a website in order to launch your NFTs.
A user interface is needed through which buyers will be able to send money and receive purchased NFTs. The industry standard tends to be websites built with ReactJS for the front-end.
Creating a Twitter, Discord, Instagram, or another social network account to communicate with interested people and share news about the project.
A very important point to remember:
There are already a huge number of NFT collections!
Thus, it’s no longer enough to just create a dozen cute characters with no utility whatsoever, hoping they get bought in an instant.
NOT GONNA HAPPEN.
It is necessary to stand out in some way and provide additional benefits, new content, and other opportunities for the community.
