Even though a published topo immediately pops up in front of hundreds of thousands of climbers, it really makes a difference when an author is active in the promotion too.
Here are a few ways how you can help climbers find your topos:
1. Tell your friends about the topos
Each new user in 27 Crags gets a 7-day free trial for Premium topos. So tell your friends that they can test your great topos for free.
What's even better, when climbers use your topo during the free trial, it increases your topo royalties just as much as a paying user does!
2. Promote your topos on social media
Use the #27crags hashtag and tag @27crags on Facebook and @27cragsofficial on Instagram so that we can share your newly created topos and updates.
Climbers are excited to hear about new topos and updates on them. So sharing them on social media and in relevant groups can bring your topos a lot of new users.
If you're not sure how to promote your topos on social media, you can find tips for it here.
3. Add climbing pictures to your topos
Great climbing pictures don't only make the topo more appealing but will also show up on the photo feed in the website and app.
Adding photos also gives you and us at 27 Crags content to use on social media. Great pictures make it so much easier to promote your topos!
If you don’t have good photos of yourself, you can also ask for some snaps from your friends. But remember to always ask them if it is cool to have them on 27 Crags first.
You also have a chance of becoming our "Pic of the week" with your great photos. If chosen we will feature your image on the 27 Crags homepage for a whole week.
4. Make an excellent topo
Climbers appreciate high-quality information and when they hear that your topo is the best, the chance that they use it increases significantly. Check out our tips on how to make an amazing topo here.
(it can also make your commission level go up)
More exposure for you and more happy climbers in the community!
