In this section, we break down the process of building an NFT collection into six easy-to-follow steps. Take a look at them
Step 1: Decide on the theme of your collection
The very first step is to settle upon a theme for your collection. Here, you have no real limit, but it might be useful to review recent trends in the market to see what’s popular. As with any artwork, however, you should make sure that you settle on a concept you really love and feel passionately about. This will shine through in your work.
At this early stage, you should also decide what form your NFT will take. It could be a GIF, image, audio clip, or something else altogether. Practically any digital file can be a non-fungible token, but you may find yourself limited by the minting tools available through the marketplace you’re using.
Whatever theme and format you choose, make sure that it’s something truly unique, something that will stand out from all the other NFT collections out there and grab the viewer’s attention. You should also ensure that you own the intellectual property rights to your idea. If you don’t, you could end up in serious trouble later down the line.
Step 2: Create your collection
Once you’ve decided on a theme and format for your NFT collection, it’s now time to create it! Designing NFTs represents an opportunity for you to try new things as an artist. While developing your style, don’t impose limits on yourself or the creative process.
For artists, the most exciting thing about non-fungible tokens is that they’re a new form of art; play around with the medium to find the best way to convey your message.
Once you’ve created your token collection, it’s time to mint them. Before you do so, however, it’s a good idea to get a crypto wallet set up in advance.
Step 3: Set up a crypto wallet
You might already have a digital wallet set up, but if you don’t, now is the time to change that. There are loads of crypto wallets out there for you to choose from. We encourage you to do a little research into the various options available to you before jumping in.
When purchasing cryptocurrency for your wallet, make sure to double-check what coins are accepted by the platform you intend to use. This will vary from site to site, but Ether is usually a safe bet.
Once your wallet is set up, you’ll have to connect it to your preferred NFT platform before you can list your collection. Before you can do that, however, you first need to decide what platform you’re going to use. This is the next step in the NFT building process.
Step 4: Decide which NFT platform you want to host your collection on
There are scores of NFT platforms out there for you to choose from. Some are relatively new and growing, still in the early stages. Others have been around for a while and have become giants in the token industry. A few of the most well-known NFT marketplaces include OpenSea, Axie Marketplace, and Larva Labs. However, you might decide to go with a smaller platform, such as AtomicHub or SolSea.
But the popularity of a platform isn’t the only thing you should take into consideration when thinking about which marketplace to use. You also need to think about which one would be the best fit for your collection. Some marketplaces have particular themes, for example. Others may use a specific kind of cryptocurrency—in some cases, their native coin.
That being said, because of its massive popularity and ease of use, OpenSea is a popular option for artists looking to host NFTs for the first time. You can mint tokens through the platform with ease and will also benefit from the large volume of traffic the site receives.
Once you’ve decided on an NFT platform, simply sign up for an account and link it with your crypto wallet. Then, you’re finally ready to move onto the minting stage.
Step 5: Mint your NFTs
The exact process you’ll have to go through in order to mint your NFTs will differ depending on what marketplace you use, but you should find your chosen platform has a guide to walk you through it. Broadly speaking, though, you’ll want to look for a tab called “Create NFT” or something similar.
First, upload the file you’d like to mint, whether it’s an image file, video, or audio clip. You’ll also have to provide an external link to your piece.
Next, pick a name for your piece. Make sure it’s something that will stand out and grab your audience’s attention while also capturing the spirit of your work. The most successful NFT artists are ones who understand the importance of branding and do their best to cultivate a strong online presence with their pieces. In many cases, the branding process begins with a strong name.
Finally, you can add a few optional details if you like. For example, you can provide a description for your token or add filters to make it easier for people to search for your work. If you’ve already set up an NFT collection, you can also add your token to it from here.
As a final note, do keep in mind that minting an NFT is not free. You’ll have to pay a gas fee in order to do so.
Step 6: List your collection for sale
At last, we find ourselves nearing the end of the NFT selling process. All that’s left to do now is list your tokens for sale.
Decide how you’d prefer to monetize your token. The options available to you will vary from platform to platform, but generally speaking, there are three options available to you. These are:
With that, you should have an active token listing. But the journey doesn’t stop there! Now that your NFT is uploaded and available for purchase, you’ll want to do everything you can to make connections in the community. Twitter is a popular social media platform for NFT developers looking to get their work out there. Discord is another extremely popular channel.
You’ll find the NFT community an active, enthusiastic one. Developers and consumers alike are eager to find new artists to keep track of. With any luck, you’ll be able to steadily build a name for yourself!
