In this creator spotlight, we are featuring Simon Shi. Simon is a Youtuber who uses Jemi as an all in one website to promote his other social media channels, offer personalized videos to his fans, and even host giveaways! Check out how Simon uses Jemi to interact with his fans.
Simon is a famous Youtuber who creates videos about solving Rubik Cube Challenges. He has made many creative videos, such as solving a 17x17 Rubik's Cube underwater, racing with his subscribers to solve Rubik’s Cubes, and teaching his subscribers how to solve complex Rubik’s Cubes. Simon has over 138k subscribers on his Youtube channel, with his most famous video reaching 24 million views!
How Simon Uses Jemi
Since Simon has so many fans, it can be difficult to interact with all of them on just his Youtube channel. This was especially difficult during the Coronavirus pandemic, where it was hard to stay connected with fans in a personalized way. However, by joining Jemi, Simon is now able to manage fan requests in an organized way and offer them personalized experiences / merch.
One of the most successful ways Simon has used Jemi is for his 17x17 Rubik’s Cube giveaway, as Jemi helps streamline the giveaway process. Fans are able to read about the giveaway and easily submit an entry through Simon’s Jemi website! Now, Simon’s entries for the giveaway are all easily organized through Jemi’s platform, which is preferable to hosting giveaways on bigger platforms such as Youtube or Instagram.
In addition, while fans are entering the giveaway on Simon’s website, they can also explore his other social platforms! Simon has a “links” page where he is able to promote his other platforms such as Discord, Tiktok, Twitter, his blog, etc.! Simon also offers video requests on his page so that fans are able to receive a personalized video from him! Through these offerings, Simon is able to promote his personal brand, share personalized experiences with fans, and host giveaways - all on one website!
How does he do it? All Simon has to do is go to his dashboard on Jemi and add a block using Jemi’s easy drag and drop builder! From there, Simon is free to choose whether he wants to create a shop item, put more link blocks, showcase new Youtube videos, etc.! Specifically, for his giveaway, Simon used the shop item block and was able to add custom fields and make his item free. As seen by Simon’s creative use of the shop item block, Jemi gives you the flexibility to use your website however you’d like! All Simon has to do now is wait for the entries from his fans or wait for requests on his other shop items. Jemi makes it easy for creators to track all the submissions and respond directly to the fan for any follow up questions.
“Being a content creator is not all about the numbers, the likes, the followers. It’s about building a community and inspiring a generation to do great things! Connect with your fans first, and the numbers will follow.”
