Tips for Submitting Popular MOCs
When submitting your MOC there are several things you can do to maximise the number of Likes/Followers/Sales you make.
- Use a clear, interesting main image. Preferably a physically built model which tells people that it is possible to build in real life; avoid screenshots of digital models.
- Use a Bricksafe gallery to show off other angles or features of your MOC.
- Use a video to further show off any functionality you may have in your MOC. Bonus points if it's a funny video!
- Add a description to your MOC. Maybe it just describes the features, or maybe you can tell a story that goes with your MOC. Embedded images or video can be used here to really emphasise details.
- If you are selling your MOC, take the time to create professional looking PDF instructions. Very few people will buy a purely digital LDD file.
- If you have many MOCs to submit, spread them out with a day or two in between each one. This will help you gain new followers after each submission. The more followers you have, the more people are notified when you submit a MOC. Remember, it may take a day for each MOC to be approved if you haven't been placed on the auto-approve list yet.
- Make sure your parts inventory contains no errors. If it has errors, a warning will be displayed which may turn people off from trying to build it. See Fixing MOC Errors for details.
When you submit a MOC, your Followers receive a notification. User's are more likely to Like/Follow you from your Free MOCs as they are easier to download and build. So it's often worth building up a base of fans via Free MOCs before submitting Premium MOCs. If you submit nothing but Premium MOCs, you are far less likely to build up Followers.
