In my experience, the best way is to go to really active fandoms and make memes celebrating the show/game/whatever.

Always assume your target audience is a sad girl and you're trying to make her feel a little better about liking the things she likes.

Navigating the Labyrinth of Fandoms: A Comprehensive Guide to Cultivating a Thriving Online Community Introduction: In the vast digital landscape of the internet, fandoms stand as vibrant beacons of shared passions, connecting individuals from all walks of life through their common love for a particular show, game, or creative work. These communities serve as virtual havens where fans can congregate, engage in lively discussions, share fan art and creations, and revel in the shared experiences that bind them together. Harnessing the power of fandom can be a potent tool for content creators and businesses alike. By tapping into the enthusiasm and dedication of these communities, one can effectively promote their work, foster brand loyalty, and establish long-lasting relationships with their target audience. The Art of Memecraft: Crafting Memes that Resonate with Fandoms Within the realm of fandom, memes hold a unique and profound power. These witty, often humorous images or videos have the uncanny ability to capture the essence of a fandom's shared experiences, resonating deeply with its members. When crafted skillfully, memes can spread like wildfire across social media platforms, propelling a fandom's popularity to new heights. The creation of effective memes requires a keen understanding of the fandom's culture, inside jokes, and common references. By weaving these elements into the fabric of a meme, content creators can strike a chord with the audience, eliciting chuckles, nods of recognition, and eager sharing. Case Study: The BoJack Horseman and Terraria Phenomenon To illustrate the transformative impact of memes on fandom growth, let us delve into the case of BoJack Horseman and Terraria. Both properties experienced a surge in popularity thanks to the strategic deployment of well-crafted memes. For BoJack Horseman, a critically acclaimed animated series, memes celebrating its poignant storytelling and relatable characters flooded social media platforms. These memes resonated with viewers, propelling the show to mainstream success and earning it a dedicated following. Terraria, a sandbox video game, experienced a similar trajectory. Memes highlighting its captivating gameplay, charming pixel art, and endless possibilities for exploration ignited a wave of enthusiasm among gamers. As a result, Terraria's popularity soared, attracting new players and solidifying its position as a beloved indie darling. Strategies for Leveraging Fandoms to Promote Content and Build Community 1. Become an Active Participant: Immerse yourself in the fandom, engaging with other fans on social media, forums, and dedicated websites. Demonstrate genuine interest and enthusiasm for the fandom's subject matter, contributing to discussions, sharing insights, and creating content that resonates with the community. 2. Craft Compelling Memes: Harness the power of memes to spread awareness about your content and engage with the fandom. Create memes that celebrate the fandom's shared passions, incorporating elements of humor, relatability, and inside jokes. Share these memes on relevant platforms, ensuring they align with the fandom's culture and values. 3. Collaborate with Fan Creators: Seek out talented fan artists, writers, and content creators within the fandom. Collaborate with them to produce high-quality fan art, videos, or written content that showcases your work in a creative and engaging manner. These collaborations can introduce your content to a wider audience and foster a sense of community and shared ownership among fans. 4. Attend Fan Conventions and Events: Make appearances at fan conventions, meet-and-greets, and other events related to the fandom. Engage with fans in person, sign autographs, and participate in panels or discussions. These interactions provide valuable opportunities to connect with your audience on a personal level, strengthening their connection to your work. 5. Foster a Welcoming and Inclusive Community: Cultivate a positive and welcoming environment within the fandom, encouraging respectful discourse and inclusivity. Address any instances of toxicity or negativity promptly and decisively.

Thanks! That's exactly what I needed to know. That'll take some time. I need to first learn how to create funny memes.

In the meantime I've created r/MarkAndAishah to do some testing. If this subreddit gets deleted, is the history captured anywhere, like preferably on the Dark Web? (I need to figure out where the equivalent of SaidIt on an .onion site)

Also, is there a subreddit that is popular and accepts crossposts on any subject?

Thanks again. This is fun.
