How to launch an NFT collection on a specific drop date and, optionally, by setting an end date

Last Updated:

NFTs have grown in popularity over the past year, with many creators and artists turning to them as a new way to monetise their digital work. If you’re considering launching your own NFT collection, it’s important to plan carefully to ensure a successful launch. In this article, we’ll walk you through the steps you need to take to launch your NFT collection with a specific start and end date.

Plan your NFT Collection

The first step is to plan your NFT collection. Decide on a theme, the number of tokens you want to release, and the rarity levels of each token. It’s important to create a cohesive and compelling collection that will attract buyers. Take the time to research successful NFT collections and consider what makes them appealing to collectors.

How to start your own NFT collection

Creating your own NFT collection is easier than you might think, thanks to NFTs2Me – a no-code platform that allows you to create NFT projects with generative art and deploy them on any blockchain of your choice, including Ethereum, Polygon, Avalanche, Fantom, Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and more.

To get started, you can either go to the NFTs2Me generator and create a collection of generative artwork by following the steps in this video tutorial or upload the final artwork directly.

Next, you’ll want to deploy your NFT collection to the blockchain of your choice. You’ll need to select a wallet to connect to the blockchain and then use that wallet to deploy your NFT collection. You can follow the video below, which explains step-by-step how to deploy on Goerli, Ethereum’s testnet (you can choose any other blockchain, the steps would be identical).

You can use NFTs2Me’s free minting tool to create a custom minting page with your own subdomain and then start minting your NFTs. You can also customise your mint page by following this video tutorial:

Set the Drop Date

Once you’ve deployed your NFT collection, you can set a drop date for your collection. This is the date when your tokens will become available for purchase. Consider scheduling the drop date at a time that’s convenient for your target audience and when there’s less competition from other NFT collections.

Consider an End Date (optional)

While not necessary, some NFT collections have an end date where tokens will no longer be available for purchase. This creates a sense of urgency among buyers and can lead to increased sales. If you choose to have an end date, be sure to communicate it clearly to buyers.

Video Tutorial set the Drop Date

Here is the video tutorial on how to configure the drop date:

Launching an NFT collection can be a lucrative opportunity for creators and artists. By following these steps and planning carefully, you can ensure a successful launch on a specific drop date. Remember to promote your collection heavily and engage with your audience to maintain interest and drive sales. Good luck!
