We are thrilled to announce that with OFBUDDY v2.0 release, we are introducting a new feature: Follow expired fans!
In the last weeks, we got a lot of requests from creators to bring this feature live. We hope you enjoy using it and if you have suggestions please let us know!
Why is this feature helpful?
Often subscribers have auto renew off in their settings and even though they love you and your content, it might be that they are unsubscribed without them paying attention. With the feature, you are now able to scan through your expired fans list and with a click of a single button, follow them automatically back. When you follow expired fans, you can then re-target them with personalised messages (or PPV) to remind them about you and buying your content will increase your revenue. Moreover, a lot of fans will also follow you back when they see that you follow them.
Overall it helps you to increase your audience with just one click, without you having to spend hours to do it on your own and gives you more opportunity to sell your content.
How does the feature work?
Before you start the scan, you have a couple of settings to choose from:
1. Do you want to follow creator accounts?
In some cases, it can be helpful to follow back creator accounts, but sometimes you only want to follow real fans back. This toggle allows you to make that choice.
2. Do you want the newly followed users to be added to a specific list?
Instead of just following users, the feature allows you to add the users to a specific list so that you can target them accordingly.
3. In case you followed the user already, do you still want to add them to the defined list?
Sometimes the feature will find expired fans, which you are already following. This could be because you followed them manually or because you have the "automatically follow back" feature on. In this case, you can choose if these users should still be added to the list you defined in the step above, of if they should be skipped. It can be useful to add them to the list especially when you use this feature for the first time, so you can target all your expired fans since the beginning of your time on OF.
After you have set up the configuration, click on the "Scan and Follow Expired Fans" button. We will start the process and you will be able to see the progress in the statistics section on the bottom. (see screenshot below)
