How to become an Alpha Hunter NFT

HOW TO BECOME AN ALPHA HUNTER?

Being part of a community, especially when it is a successful NFT collection, is a treat that not everyone can have. Of course being the Alpha Hunter of these communities is even better.

Surely you have noticed what they do, knowing they contribute to the community while they work and get paid for it. If you want to be one of them, stay, we will show you how to become an Alpha Hunter step by step.

WHAT IS IT TO BE AN ALPHA HUNTER?

An Alpha Hunter at NFT is in charge of finding whitelistopportunities in projects with potential, closing a collab and offering them to their community.

That is, they actively look for projects with high potential and ask them for as many whitelist spots as they can and then raffle them off to DAO members or share the requirements for the FCFS collab.

In the past, everything was done manually through Discord, but it is becoming increasingly common to use intermediary platforms such as Subber or Atlas3.

HOW DO COLLABS WORK?

Collaborations are usually by giveaway or FCFS.

In the giveaway collaborations, as its name indicates, a giveaway is made in the community, and the winners of it receive the whitelist.

Collab FCFS is a first come, first served collaboration. That is, the project establishes some requirements, which we share with our community, and the first ones that meet these requirements are the ones that get the whitelist.

WHAT FUNCTIONS DOES AN ALPHA HUNTER PERFORM?

  • Offering opportunities to the community.
  • Collaboration management.
  • Active search for collaborations.
  • Response to potential collabs offered.
  • Assignment of whitelist.
  • Review of compliance with the collaborations.

HOW MUCH DOES AN ALPHA HUNTER CHARGE?

If we talk about how much an Alpha Hunter makes, we can establish ranges between $10 and $150 per week. We must take into account that it is a partial job, that is, an Alpha Hunter works on several projects at the same time, even mixing roles.

As in any other job, Alpha Hunters do not have a fixed and generalized salary for everyone. There is a real difference, as we can find Alpha Hunters who work for free and others who ask for hundreds of dollars a week.

There is also the problem that we cannot guarantee results; we cannot promise access to the whitelist of x projects because it does not depend on us. Our job will be to look for those opportunities. Still, it is possible that the project we are interested in rejects us because they are looking for larger communities or with other characteristics. The rejection rate is relatively low compared to what collab managers receive.

This means that hiring usually comes from success in previous jobs, or even from success working as a collab manager in the "pre-mint" phase.

It is also very common for the same person to develop the role of collab manager, moderator, etc. in different projects.

HOW TO BECOME AN ALPHA HUNTER IN 7+1 STEPS?

Before you start this process, you must be aware that it is not going to be easy. That is, it will be challenging to get your first jobs and even more difficult to get paid for them as you deserve. You will live a "0 to 100" process, in which you will progressively reach a good position within the NFT sector.

1. CHOOSE WHICH BLOCKCHAIN YOU ARE GOING TO BE AN ALPHA HUNTER ON

To grow as an expert Alpha Hunter, you will need contacts, knowledge of the market you are developing, an understanding of the most importantprojects in this market, and fluency to surf the trends.

For these reasons, it is best to focus on a blockchain, especially if you are starting. The most common networks are Ethereum, Polygon, and Solana because of the volume they move in NFT.

In other words, they have more volume, users, and new projects. Therefore, more opportunities to get a job, but also more competition.

2. UNTANGLE YOURSELF AND HIGHLIGHT

It is your time to start. For this you must understand how the blockchain you are going to work on works in all its layers, which are its top collections, its referent collections, which collections are launching and are hyped, trends in terms of utilities, who are the most influential people, influencers in social networks, referent DAOs, etc.

To learn these things you will have to observe and move around different discord servers and project communities. Be active in them and talk to the users. By doing this you will learn and meet people that can help you in the future.

If you can invest, we recommend that you do so. Of course, invest money that you are willing to lose, and we recommend it because with money involved you will put more effort into making your investment profitable, so you will learn more.

This stage is crucial for Alpha Hunters because much of the value they bring is their analytical power to detect projects with great potential, thus making the collabs they close more valuable for their community.

BEING AN ALPHA HUNTER

3. FIRST EXPERIENCES TO BECOME AN ALPHA HUNTER

It's time to make genuine contacts and stand out from the crowd to get your first project jobs.

We have to be realistic; nobody is going to hire you without knowing you and without previous experience. So the first thing we have to do is to get it. You will do it in the following way: you will get into small and newly created projects; when you are inside their discord servers, you have to stand out by being active, making the owners notice you.

When you are standing out , you have to take action by contacting them. Propose to them to be moderator and/or Alpha Hunter for free (probably they will be more interested in you as a moderator at the beginning, since in a new project they do not need the figure of Alpha Hunter).

Once they have lied, you can become Alpha Hunter. In addition, you will have gained experience, which makes you more valuable in the eyes of whoever hires you and the rest.

Please do not go chasing project owners begging to be hired, you will generate rejection and you will make it very difficult to work on other projects. You must give a serious and professional image.

4. ACCEPT REJECTIONS AS AN ALPHA HUNTER

Once you are at this point, you have to get used to being rejected. From the moment you start and for as long as you are an alpha hunter, you are going to get a no in most cases. It will happen to you when you are looking for a job and while you are working when you ask for collaboration on projects.

Accept it and take it as a challenge, it will be much easier this way.

5. CREATE YOUR CONTACT LIST

You must have your first experiences without getting paid because it will be easier and will open doors for you. Your priority during this stage should be meeting people and contacts with other alpha hunters and collab managers.

Remember that when you are looking for collaborations, these projects have collabs managers in their team, so you should relate to them and make a list of contacts with whom to exchange collabs, facilitating the work of both.

6. BUILD YOUR PORTFOLIO

It's great that you have experience, but it's no good if you cannot show it to your potential employers. For this reason you should make a portfolio of your work as if you were an artist.

Platforms such as Galaxie.co and similar are commonly used.

Detail your experience and be original to stand out. It is beneficial to have a presence on Twitter and other social networks. It showcases your work, so you can take the example of alpha hunters with some influence.

7. STRIVING TO BE THE BEST

It isn't effortless to be Alpha Hunter, much more if you have not been for a long time. Also when you are starting, it pays very severely; for this reason you must be aware of the situation and strive to be the best. Stand out for how well you do it, you will be recommended to other clients, and you will make a "snowball" effect with your portfolio, thus increasing your salary as well.

Suppose you make an effort to do better than the rest. In that case, your situation will improve until you have a permanent position in different good projects, therefore also more interested clients. Your time will be better paid and your work will be easier and more accessible.

7+1. HIGHLIGHT ABOVE OTHER ALPHA HUNTERS

This extra is for all those who want to go further and dare to strive to be more than just another Alpha Hunter.

Innovate and differentiate yourself from the rest. If you do, you won't need to ask anyone to hire you; they will come looking for you.

A good example is Cloudz. Thanks to the content you create, you are known, therefore you get more potential contacts and customers in your networks.

HOW TO FIND PROJECTS TO WORK AS AN ALPHA HUNTER?

As we have already mentioned, accessing the projects in early stages is essential for your first experiences. But once you have this experience, you should look for collections that have recently minted, as this is the phase where they will need an Alpha Hunter. You should also look for projects close to the mint date to start working as soon as they mint. Indeed in these stages, they do not have Alpha Hunter yet.

Remember that the best option to contact these projects is on their Discord servers, it is tough for them to respond to Twitter DMs, as they receive many messages from spammers.

MAGIC EDEN

In the "popular collections" section of magic eden you can find 1000 NFT collections that have already made their mint. This applies to Solana, Polygon, Ethereum, Bitcoin, and Cardano since Magic Eden currently supports these Blockchains.

With this option, we can filter by 24 hours or 7 days and check recently minted projects. Once we have them, we should write to them to offer them our work.

It is difficult, and you will get a lot of "no's", but by being persistent and improving your communication skills, you will get more and more jobs.

MINTS OF THE DAY TWITTER

Many twitter accounts publish the daily mint highlights. That is, every day, you can find projects that will mint and will need an alpha hunter. Do not bother them during the mint day because they will be busy and will not pay attention, but later you will have the option to offer them your work.

Move around twitter and you will find these accounts very easily.

REFERRED BY ANOTHER ALPHA HUNTER

Again, we emphasize the importance of networking with other alpha hunters, moderators, collab managers, etc.

An NFT collection needs new workers continuously, so, commonly, the project owners ask for recommendations from their staff. Therefore, if you make these contacts, they are the ones who will bring you work.

HOW TO FIND ALPHA HUNTER OPPORTUNITIES?

You must perform well in every job you get so they continue counting on you. That's why you should strive to get the best opportunities for your community. We explain the best ways to find opportunities as an alpha hunter.

Don't forget that the best option to contact these projects is on their Discord servers; it is very difficult for them to respond to Twitter DMs, as they receive many messages from spammers.

TWITTER HASHTAGS

Normally projects when they are starting up usually make a first post looking for the first interactions where they use hashtags such as: #NFT, #Solana, #Ethereum, etc.

Follow up to see how they develop and ask for collaboration with those with the most potential.

COPY OTHER ALPHA HUNTERS

If you are part of a community and know their alpha hunter is outstanding, copy them. That is, analyze the projects with which he has closed collab and if they have potential, try to get it too.

It is an excellent way to ensure a project has potential if many alpha hunters have sought collaboration.

INFLUENCERS ON TWITTER

Projects to get hype do promotions with influencer accounts from different networks. Follow them and take advantage of projects with the potential to ask them to collaborate.

CONCLUSION: HOW TO BECOME AN ALPHA HUNTER?

We can conclude that to be an Alpha Hunter, you need knowledge, desire and effort. But without a doubt, it isworthit if that is what you want.

Be clear about what you want, study, and plan a strategy. Best of luck, we hope to see you soon closing the best collabs!
