If you're an NFT creator looking to increase engagement on your accounts, want to know your target demographic better, and want to give back to your community- you should know how to send Airdrops.

An Airdrop is when a crypto project sends free NFT's (or tokens) in a large quantity to their communities to encourage adoption.
Top 3 reasons why it is ESSENTIAL for every NFT creator to leverage Airdrops:
1. Understand Your Target Demographic Better.

2. Increase Engagement on your accounts
The format above is incredible for getting more eyes on your work.
Retweets are amazing because that instantly puts your work in-front of your networks, network. Add in the fact that you are giving away free money?? Consider them your network now too.
