Their efforts thereby command well deserved loyalty, making them a powerful partner for your Web3 projects. Here's how you can identify the right KOL to partner with and how you can reach out them at scale.

Identify your audience

The first step to outreach would be to identify your ideal audiences. Through Blaze you can identify relevant and high potential leads suited to your goal.

The easy way

The powerful way: 

Use the audience wizard to create a specific list quick and easy. Example: "obtaining a list of web3 KOLs who follow straknet and hold $ARB"

Pick your goal and craft your message

While the content of the message gets you set for a win, the art and know-hows of crafting the message gives you the edge in making the win happen.

Here’s are a few DM message samples that can you help you with a sure shot win:

Goal 1 - Drive affiliate programs

Web3 KOLs are the perfect candidates for affiliate programs and are often on the lookout for ways to monetize their audiences.

Hey {{first_name}},

Big fan of your work in the {{category}} space!

I'm building {{company_name}} and I'm on the lookout for affiliate partners to help spread the word.

With X% commissions for every referral dollar, our affiliate program is known to be super generous.

Would you be game to participate? : {{program_link}}.

- Name

Goal 2 - Collect feedback

Early feedback can make or break a product - a fact ever so familar to founders. Reach out to KOLs, often experts in the field, for some early pointers!

Hey {{first_name}},

I’m building to solve for multi-channel attribution in the Web3 space and I am a big fan of your work.

Would be super helpful if you can take a look and provide feedback on the product I’m building.

Can we grab 30, sometime?

- Name

Goal 3 - Partnerships

It takes a village to grow a child. Find KOLs who share your vision and are on the lookout for paid and maybe even evangelistic synergies's

Hey {{first_name}},

I came across your work in the {category} space. I’m the co-founder of {{company_name}} and we’re building in the Web3 attribution and analytics space. I think our mutual customers

Would love to connect with you over a quick coffee chat to talk through the potential of a partnership.

Here’s my calendar - {{calendly_link}}

- Name

💡 Keep in mind these pointers while you’re crafting a message:

  • Keep the DM concise
  • Personalizing the DM gets you a better conversion rate
  • Follow-ups are key as well
  • Web3 words/catch-phrases
  • Add CTAs that prompt a reply over a link click

Reach out, in autopilot!
