My Boat Life

6 Boats Designed with Fold-down Sides for Expanded Decks, Cockpits and Water Access

fold down boat sides

For expanded boat decks and access to the water these popular boat models are designed with fold-down boat sides – port, starboard or BOTH!

A cool boat design trend we’ve been seeing over the last few years are fold down sides… a great way for more deck space and easier water access.

In nautical terms this is also known as a BULWARK –

bul·wark /ˈbo͝olˌwərk/ an extension of a ship’s sides above the level of the deck.

But the design is now becoming popular on smaller recreational boats. Is this a good boat design? It definitely comes with its advantages and some limitations.

Let’s take a look at 6 boat models designed with Fold-down sides – either starboard, port or even both!


See more of each boat with fold-down sides in our video overview:

Fold-down on Starboard

#1 – Sea Ray SLX 400

The Sea Ray SLX 400 was the first boat I saw with a large fold-down side deck on the starboard side.

It debuted at the Miami 2017 boat show with inboards which really showed off how big the deck could become with the fold-down side as it connected to the swim platform. It was such a ground-breaking design that it won a 2017 industry innovation award for its “Single level living on a small version of a European superyacht”.

To meet the growing demand for outboards they also came out with an outboard version of the SLX 400 – the fold-down side became even more necessary because it made access to the water easier with the outboard motors.

#2 Cruisers 38 GLS

Cruisers Yachts came out with a fold-down deck extension on the starboard side of their 38 GLS – debuting at fort Lauderdale 2019 boat show.

Controlled by a switch located in the stern area of the boat, the side opens or closes expanding the deck footprint.

An advantage of the one-side down design is that you can still raft up with another boat on your port side… and if you have outboards you have more deck space to access the water.

Fold-down Boat Sides – Port

#3 Azimut 47 Verve

The Italian boatbuilder Azimut Yachts came out with their 47 Verve at the 2020 Miami Boat Show with a fold-down side on the port side.

Their fold-down looks more like a door or dive door, because it doesn’t connect to the swim platform.

It also has a step down, rather than a continuous one-level like other models with a fold-down side. But it has nice side access to the water and also includes an integrated ladder.

Fold-down and Fold-in Sides

#4 Intrepid 477 Evolution

Intrepid’s 477 Evolution has an interesting combo of a fold-down on port side with fold-in door on starboard side.

The Intrepid 477 Evolution debuted the same time as Cruisers 38 GLS – at the 2019 Fort Lauderdale show.

Fold-downs on Both Sides of a Boat

#5 Ocean Alexander 45 Divergence

The luxury center console by Ocean Alexander, 45 Divergence made a stunning debut at the Miami 2019 boat show with fold-down sides on BOTH starboard & port.

With the fold-downs, the sides become a bit of a balcony for seating. And of course if you are lucky enough to have a friend with a 45 Divergence too, you can raft up an create a large walking plank from one boat to the other.

With 2 fold-downs you can also decide to leave one side up. The fold-downs make the large cockpit of the 45 Divergence even more expansive. And the slide out ladder makes it easy to bypass the outboards and access the water from the side instead.

#6 Scout 530 LXF

The Scout 530 LXF with 2 fold-down sides also debuted at Miami 2019.

The two fold-down sides were somewhat overshadowed by the 6 outboard engines on the 530 LXF – it got a lot of attention as one of the first center consoles to come equipped with that many engines.

But with all those engines on the transom, it’s a good thing it also has 2 fold-down sides to make it easier to board and access the water. The two fold-down sides create a single level deck that is super wide-open & spacious in the cockpit.

With easier access to the water and a larger footprint for standing or sitting on the boat, we’re sure to see more boats designed with fold-down sides in the future.

On board with Victor Vescovo, owner of DSSV Pressure Drop

Victor Vescovo will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Explorer Yachts Summit , in association with Damen Yachting and in collaboration with ExplorerYachts.com, on November 10 at Yacht Club de Monaco. Ahead of his appearance we look back at his 2020 interview with Charlotte Hogarth-Jones about his adventures so far.

Victor Vescovo is not your typical boat owner – if there is such a thing. Like a few first-time buyers, the Texan private equity investor has enjoyed considerable success on Wall Street, and was looking for an exciting new toy.

Acting as an intelligence officer for the US Navy Reserve for 20 years, he was vice-president of product development at a company called Military Advantage, which helped Americans with military associations to access recruitment services, educational opportunities and more. The platform was sold to careers giant Monster in 2004 and he then went on to co-found Insight Equity, a Texas-based private equity firm.

The toy he ended up with, however, was no fresh-from-the-yard pleasure boat. It was DSSV (deep submersible support vessel) Pressure Drop , a 68.3-metre former US Navy ship intended  for serious business. 

Refitted to accommodate 47 people – including 19 crew and 12 technical specialists – it’s got dry and wet science labs, full ocean-deep sonar, and an 11.2-metre Triton 36000/2 submersible . Called Limiting Factor , it’s the only submarine in the world that’s able to do multiple dives to the very bottom of the ocean floor, and has a “depth unlimited” rating – something that’s been put to the test recently,  as Vescovo, EYOS Expeditions and Nekton Mission journeyed together to the very bottom of each of the world’s five oceans, on an endeavour known as the Five Deeps .

Meanwhile, Vescovo is the first person in history to have been to the peak of all the world’s continents (an avid mountaineer, he’s climbed Mount Everest), to both poles (he’s a passionate skier), and to the bottom of all the world’s oceans. 

There’s a famous sky bar on board Pressure Drop . Can he ever see himself enjoying sundowners in the Caribbean, I ask. “No,” he laughs. “It’s just not in my nature."

He is by definition an explorer, but it’s not a badge he wears easily. “It’s always unusual to hear other people describe you,” he says, “but I’ve started to get more comfortable with the role.” Adventure, it seems, has always run in his veins. As a young child, he wanted to be an astronaut, and as a teen he hoped to join the US Air Force as a fighter pilot. “My eyes were so poor I didn’t meet the requirements,” he explains. “I later qualified as a civilian pilot, so I scratched that itch that way.”

In his view, true explorers possess “an innate curiosity in their genes, and there’s also a part of them that likes to push themselves to physical and mental extremes”. Some scientists believe there are certain genetic markers that mean people are predisposed towards being adventurous and risk-taking. Vescovo has been DNA tested and says he has every single one.

Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench is the deepest known point on earth, and in April last year Vescovo reached it. In doing so he went deeper than any other manned dive ever – 10,928 metres down, a descent that took him four and a half hours. “You can’t  not be attracted to the drama of it,” he enthuses. “I really enjoy being in the submarine in particular because it’s very peaceful and quiet, and you’re at neutral buoyancy because you move very slowly, so it’s almost a Zen-like experience.”

But Vescovo is no happy-go-lucky tourist – he’s an analyst by trade, and by nature. “He’s very calm, very considered,” says expedition leader Rob McCallum, from EYOS, “and he’s easy to work with because he’s entirely reasonable.” Vescovo puts it like this: “You’re like a test pilot, and you have to manage risk continuously, which requires a very serious disposition.”

His hero isn’t a showboater – it’s polar explorer Roald Amundsen, “an extremely thorough and methodical Norwegian, who rigorously figured out what to do and wasn’t reckless”, he says.  “I’ve always tried to use his expeditions as a template for our own work.”

However calm and careful he is, Vescovo wasn’t immune to the shock that many first-time boat owners face. “There were two things  I underestimated, and one was refitting a former US Navy ship. I thought, how hard can it be?”  he laughs. “Working with shipyards, expenses  can get out of hand fast – I wasn’t prepared for that,” he admits. “A yard has so much leverage over you, and there are so many different ways that costs can be increased but not verified – it requires enormous attention to detail, on an almost daily basis.

“The hardest part for me has been keeping track of everything – the submarine, the ship, the crew, the science team, the permits, legal, insurance…” he tails off. Another thing he underestimated? Working with the media. “I’ve learnt some very painful lessons,” he says.

At times, he’s almost apologetic about Pressure Drop . “Our ship is not a yacht, and it’s not luxurious,” he says, “but goodness gracious, we do a lot of good science.” That’s something of an understatement. The Five Deeps dives he and his team have carried out with Limiting Factor have given way to some of the most important scientific research of the decade, and their findings will inform how we use and protect our oceans for years to come.

The team collected tens of thousands of specimens under the guidance of chief scientist Dr Alan Jamieson, and have so far identified more than 40 previously undiscovered species, with more sure to follow, as the bulk of the samples are still being analysed. They’ve taken hundreds of hours of valuable video footage, mapped more than 750,000 square kilometres of sea floor for the first time, and even kicked off a debate with Canadian film-maker and environmentalist James Cameron, one of the few others to have gone to the bottom of Challenger Deep.

“It’s part of a polite scientific agreement that me and Mr Cameron have,” explains Vescovo. Essentially, the Limiting Factor team think they reached a deeper point than Cameron did in 2012. Cameron’s team believe the seabed there is flat, while Vescovo’s believes it undulates – allowing them to go deeper. “Having been part of both expeditions, I do think that Victor got to a slightly deeper spot – but I don’t think it’s at all important,” says McCallum. “It’s the most hostile point on earth, and  I think for anyone that gets there, it’s a huge achievement.”

Vescovo agrees. “I respect him immensely, and I’m hoping we can settle the debate scientifically,” he says. “We’re going back to Challenger Deep this summer, and we’ll dive it up to eight more times to measure the topography of the area as detailed as we can. Maybe he’s right,” he says, “but we’ll certainly have a magnitude of information to be able to solve things.” Vescovo has extended an invitation to Cameron to join him on board, he says, but so far hasn’t received a response.

Of course, being the owner of a ship-cum-science hub has had its complications. “There’s definitely a balancing act involved, and one of the obvious ones is that I wanted to do all of the first dives solo,” he explains. “The science team thought it was a bit of a wasted opportunity, and I agree with them – but it’s a very different thing to explore solo than with someone else,” he says, “and this is also about my personal experience.”

In fact, it’s easy to forget that this is Vescovo’s pet project, his vision and his money. Shouldn’t it be governments and other global organisations that should be taking all this on, I ask, rather  than one individual? “I do think they should be doing more,” he agrees, “but I’m realistic.  I understand the inefficiencies that can  come with international bureaucracies and  state organisations."

As an example, he explains how hard it was to obtain permits to dive in the five zones and to conduct marine research, even though it was at no cost to the organisations themselves. “The knee-jerk reaction always seems to be no,” he says, “but in a way I’m very happy writing all the expenses myself, because it gives me a degree of control. I think the most under-appreciated aspect of both business and exploration is speed, and we’ve stunned many people in the oceanographic community by how quickly we’ve been able to build the system, and then use it to do something that no government has ever even tried to do, at a fraction of the cost.”

And yet there will be more voices around the table next time round – at least in theory. Vescovo is embarking on a new mission, termed the Ring of Fire, exploring trenches in the Red Sea, the Yap Trench and the Palau Trench in the western Pacific Ocean, returning to Challenger Deep as well – and, for $750,000 (£626,000), sponsors will be able to join him in the passenger seat. “We’re certainly not making money here,” he stresses. “This is not a tourist venture.”

The money from sponsors will go towards fuel and other expedition expenses. “Those few  who have signed up so far understand that we’re going to be doing serious science on these dives,” he explains. “Ninety per cent of the ocean is unexplored and there’s never been a tool  that could go down repeatedly and reliably  below 7,000 metres before. We’ve only just scratched the surface.”

Vescovo is keen to continue with the dives for the next 10 to 20 years, but he has made no secret of his desire to sell the whole set-up to a research organisation or a government that would be able to refit it and employ it year-round. His partner of eight years is very supportive. She’s claustrophobic, so probably won’t ever join him on a dive, but “she knew what she was getting into when she met me”, Vescovo laughs.

Talking to Vescovo about his hobbies, it’s clear that he’s obsessed by all things mechanical. “I’m never happier than when I have my hands on a wheel of some kind,” he enthuses, citing a helicopter, a jet, a motorcycle and a huge car collection as evidence. “I still have every car I’ve ever owned.” His favourite, he says, is a 1989 Lamborghini Countach, “the first of the exotic supercars”. In his workshop at home he creates everything from metal objects and wooden furniture to hand-crafted fountain pens.

The only thing he seems to enjoy that doesn’t involve a dashboard or a toolkit is reading sci-fi novels. His company, Caladan Oceanic, is named after the planet Caladan, the birthplace of his favourite sci-fi character, Duke Leto Atreides, from the novel Dune . “It didn’t end well for him,” he says, “but he had a lot of great virtues – and he was great at attracting people.”

Vescovo himself is not too bad at pulling together a crack team, I suggest. “What’s fascinating is that I was able to attract the best people in their field, simply because this is the kind of thing people really want to do,” he says. What’s more, Pressure Drop seems to be a happy ship. “Speaking from the heart, it’s an incredible working environment,” says McCallum. “Anyone who’s spent time at sea knows that you see people at their very best, and their absolute worst. You bond – and I’ve never seen that at a higher level than on Pressure Drop . We’re a very close bunch.”

There was a fair amount of vetting involved early on in the process. “A big part of my job is building and perfecting teams to run companies, so I made quite a few replacements because  I know when things aren’t working out,” says Vescovo. “I’m the tip of the spear,” he goes on, “and yes, I funded everything, and I had the initial idea. But it’s the team that made everything happen – my expedition leader Rob McCallum, Patrick Lahey, co-founder of Triton Submarines, my captain Stuart Buckle, my head of sonar  and mapping Cassie Bongiovanni – without  these extraordinary individuals performing at  the height of their careers, none of this would have happened.”

What’s the next frontier to be tackled and conquered, I ask. “I would very much like to go into space,” he says. “I’m speaking to some commercial firms that are trying to give access to private citizens.”

As for citizen science at sea, I ask him if he thinks superyacht owners do enough. “The thing is, the entire cost of our system – to build it and test it and perfect it – cost less than a modern Gulfstream aircraft, and in some cases it’s dramatically less than the extremely large yachts that other people construct.” Why don’t others, then, follow in this bold adventurer’s footsteps? “I just don’t know,” he smiles. “It’s always been puzzling to me.”

6 smart twitter automations to hook your new followers.

drop yacht

Recently, everyone realized X/Twitter is the epicenter of real-time drama, when it live-streamed Starship's launch and Sam Altman's roller-coaster ride at OpenAI.

X/Twitter is the go-to platform for global popcorn moments.

But the place is buzzing with so much chatter it sometimes feels like trying to whisper in a rock concert.

So, here's the scoop – I've got 6 nifty tricks up my sleeve you can use to keep your new followers hooked and engaged.

6 Twitter Automation Tactics

1. welcome and brand intro.

You don’t need to roll out the red carpet for each new follower on X/Twitter, but the least you can do is send them a message.

One that gives them something to remember you by.

They're peeking over the fence into your world, curious and ready to be wowed. So make the best of this opportunity to open the door to a conversation.

Fire up your DropYacht account and set up a 'Welcome and brand intro' journey:

  • Get things rolling by setting up your DropYacht journey to trigger when a user starts following you on Twitter. This will automatically initiate the welcome sequence for anyone who decides to follow you.
  • Now, create a DM that introduces your brand in a way that sticks. This is your chance to make a strong first impression and tell your audience more about you. Offer them a taste of the unique content, insights, or benefits they can expect by being a part of your community.

For example, your message could be: "Hey there, welcome aboard! Thrilled to see you here. Here’s a quick snapshot of what we're all about and why we're passionate about it: [link to your brand story or About Us page]."

drop yacht

If you’re unsure about what message will work and want to test a few variations, you can add the A/B Test node after the Trigger node and test up to 5 different variations with different weights.

For example, you can set 25% of your followers to get message A, 55% to get message B, and 20% to get message C. Then see which message worked well.

drop yacht

  • Build in a 2-day buffer after your initial message with a Time Delay node. This gives your new follower some time to explore your content and get acquainted with your brand before you reach out again.
  • Post the 2-day delay, circle back with a follow-up DM to deepen the connection. This step can help turn the interaction from a simple hello to a meaningful dialogue.

The message could look like: "Hope you enjoyed our story? Here’s more on how we can help you: [link]."

2. Follow-up and check-in

Keeping the conversation going with your audience is key, not just after the initial intro but as part of an ongoing dialogue.

A well-timed follow-up can show your new followers that you're genuinely interested in them and value their thoughts and experiences.

Consider setting up a journey that checks in with your new followers.

It's a simple yet effective way to demonstrate that you’re attentive and invested in building a lasting relationship:

  • Kick off this journey by setting a trigger for 3 days post-follow . This gives your new followers a chance to get familiar with your content vibe.
  • Create a DM thanking them for the follow and asking them how they feel about something you recently shared on X/Twitter.

Send somethink like: “ Hiya! Thanks for joining our journey on X. Curious to know, what's your take on our latest [post/update/game release]? Any feedback or thoughts you'd like to share?”

drop yacht

  • Use a Listener node for the reply. This is what a Listener node in DropYacht looks like:

drop yacht

You can add listener for 5 types of user actions for Twitter in DropYacht: DMs, follows, tweet replies, retweets, and mentions.

drop yacht

For this journey, we’ll use a listener for the DM.

We can also tell the listener to listen for certain words in the DM but we don’t need that for this journey.

drop yacht

“No response action time” is how much time the Listener node will wait listening for the desired response from the user.

Set it to 48 hours to wait for them to respond to the DM.  If the user doesn’t respond, the journey continues on the “User does not respond” path.

One way to continue building the journey from here is:

  • Delete the node for the “User Responds” path. If they hit you back , ditch the automation and switch to a personal touch by using DropYacht's Inbox feature to continue the convo, tailoring your replies to their feedback or questions. This is important because we can’t predict what the user might reply and so we can’t pre-define what message should be sent.
  • No reply? No problem. Keep it cool by sending a parting DM like, "Just popping in to say hi! Exciting things are on the horizon. Stay tuned!"

drop yacht

This journey helps you make people feel seen and heard.

It's not just about sending messages to get something out of them; it's about opening a two-way street for conversation.

Keep it authentic and watch your community thrive.

3. Sharing a resource

One of my favorite moves to keep the conversation fresh with new followers is to slide into their DMs with some super handy resources.

I think of it as my way of saying, "Thanks for joining the ride, here's some cool stuff to make your day."

This journey positions you as a thought leader and resource hub, providing followers with actionable insights and in-depth information.

  • Set this journey to trigger 2 days after a user follows your Twitter account.
  • Send a DM asking for their permission to share the resource with them. This is the right way to share stuff because, first, you ask users to opt-in so it doesn’t feel like spam. And second, it creates an interaction loop.

Here’s a message you can send to get permission to share a YouTube video link: "Hey there, new pal! 👋 Thanks for joining our X community. We've got this wicked YouTube video that dives deep into [Topic] – it’s like the ultimate hack into the [Industry/Game/Market]. Hit us back with 'Count me in' and we’ll teleport you straight to video wonderland. 🎥"

drop yacht

Sometimes you've got a PDF, a guide, maybe a report, and you'd want to share it on Twitter. But Twitter's not too friendly with file attachments in DMs. A few ways around this are:

  • Upload to a cloud service: Go ahead and upload that PDF to Google Drive, Dropbox, or OneDrive. Once it's up there, you just share the link in a Twitter DM. You gotta check the settings though, make sure whoever's on the other end can open it.
  • Convert to an image : If your PDF isn't all that long, you could turn specific pages to images (JPEG or PNG) and then send these images through Twitter DMs. Works pretty well for shorter documents or when you only need to share a snippet of some part of the PDF.
  • Host on your website: Then there's your own turf - your website. You can put the PDF up there, then just shoot over a direct link in a Twitter DM.
  • Use a file-sharing service : Last, there's always something like WeTransfer. You upload your PDF, and it spits out a link for you to share. That's another way to get around Twitter's little quirks with DMs.

The way forward can be designed like this:

  • Use a Listener node for the opt-in. Set the listener to catch the opt-in phrase or word and then set a “no response action time” duration of 48 hours to wait for the user to respond to the DM.
  • If the user opts in , send them the link: "Awesome sauce! You’re officially in for a wild ride. Buckle up and click here to jet off to your video adventure: [link to your YouTube video]."
  • If the user does not respond , you have three options: you can again send them a DM telling them about the resource, you can send them the welcome and brand intro journey we covered already, or you can also just delete the node for the “User does not respond” path. I would say use a Time Delay node and try sending them another nudge 4-8 days later in case they missed your first message or didn’t have time then.

After you've sent your resource, you can choose to end the journey.

But there's more to it than just sharing a resource and walking away.

You've got this chance to keep the ball rolling. You're building something, a connection, a back-and-forth.

You reach back out, poke them a bit - ask what they thought about what you sent. That's where the real conversation starts.

  • Give the user some time to go through the resource by using a Time Delay node . 3-4 days is good enough.
  • Send a DM asking them their thoughts on the resource and topic.

Use something like: "Hope you’ve survived the mind-bending journey through our video 🌪️🧠. Spill the beans - what did you think? Which part made you go 'Whoa!' and what left you scratching your head? Your uncensored thoughts, please.”

4. Networking with micro-influencers

This journey helps you build a connection with the folks in the crowd who've got a bit of a following, a bit of clout.

When you connect with these folks, it's like hitching a ride on a mini rocket. They've got the audience, the reach, the influence.

And let's not forget, it's not just about the numbers. It's about credibility, trust.

Their followers listen because they trust them.

This journey is designed for brands, especially in the Web3, indie gaming, or influencer marketing sectors, to identify and engage with high-value followers (e.g., those with a significant follower count) to build influential connections and foster networking opportunities.

  • Set this journey to trigger 3 days after a user follows your Twitter account.
  • Create a Conditional node to check if the new follower has more than 5,000 followers . Here’s a Conditional node in DropYacht, it looks similar to a Listener node:

drop yacht

Currently, it supports two kinds of conditions but we're going to release a lot more very soon:

drop yacht

I’ll talk about the ‘Make Your Own’ condition some other time.

For this journey, we’re going to use the ‘Number of followers’ condition and set the minimum number of followers to 5000.

You can continue building the journey like this:

  • If the condition is met , send them a DM inviting them to your upcoming event, webinar, or asking them to join a networking group. You can send this kind of a DM: "Howdy! I just had peeked at your profile - impressive stuff in [replace this placeholder with relevant field]! 😎 It’s not easy to rack up 5,000+ followers on X. We think you'd be a perfect fit for our upcoming [your event/webinar/networking group brief info]. How about joining us for some real talk and fun? Let me know what you think."
  • For the “If no” path, if you haven’t already set the “Welcome and Brand Intro” journey, you can set it here. Otherwise, you can delete the node.

drop yacht

  • Use a Listener node for the reply to the DM . Set a “no response action time” duration of 48 hours to wait for them to respond to the DM.

The journey can be designed to continue in this manner:

  • Delete the node for the “User Responds” path. When a user shoots back a response , that's your cue to roll up your sleeves and dive in manually. Hop into the Inbox feature inside DropYacht and engage them based on their reply. You can't put this part on autopilot. The user might ask you questions about the event or networking group or they might suggest a direct way to collaborate together.
  • For the “User does not respond” path, set action to send a parting DM: "All good! Maybe next time? Keep rocking in your corner of the world. We’ve got more wild rides up our sleeve, so stay tuned for the next big thing."

5. Increasing giveaway participation

Alright, so how about a journey that will really jazz up the crowd, get them all revved up?

Here's a classic move, tried and true: tap into that age-old love for giveaways.

You're not just saying hello, you're handing them a ticket to the funfair. It's a chance for them to play, to win something that's valuable or maybe just cool.

You can either have a giveaway underway that’s open to all or have a recurring one exclusively for your new followers.

This is a great way to plant seeds for a community that'll be active and loyal.

  • Set this journey to start 2 days after a user follows your Twitter account.
  • Create your giveaway invitation DM .

For example, your message could read: "Whoop, whoop, welcome to the thrill ride! We're rolling out a fantastic giveaway just for our new followers. Fancy winning some cool prizes? We’re giving away [details of the prizes] Reply 'I’m in' to get all the juicy details.”

drop yacht

  • Use a Listener node for the reply to the DM . You can set a "no response action time" of 48 hours to wait for them to answer the DM.

I would design the rest of the adventure like this:

  • If the user responds with the opt-in phrase or word, can send the details of the giveaway and how to participate: “You've got the spirit! Here's the scoop on our giveaway: [Details/Link]. Follow these simple steps to enter, and who knows, luck might just be on your side! 🎁”
  • If the user doesn’t respond with the opt-in phrase or under 48 hours, you can send them a message saying they missed the offer but there will be more chances in the future if they stay in touch with you. Something like: “Uh oh, this giveaway train missed you but there's always the next one. Keep your eyes peeled for more fun times and mystery gifts with us!"

6. Creating UGC

Alright, let's talk about a secret weapon you can get in your arsenal with DropYacht: user-generated content, UGC for short.

This journey is all about getting those new followers to roll up their sleeves and join in on the fun.

You're asking them to not just watch from the sidelines but also be part of the show.

For Web3 projects, indie gaming devs, and influencer marketing agencies, UGC is like gold dust. It ramps up engagement, creates real, authentic connections, and boy, does it amplify your brand's reach.

It's like having a chorus of voices, each singing your brand's tune, but in their own unique way.

  • After a user follows your Twitter account, you can set this journey to begin 2 days later.

drop yacht

  • Send the UGC invitation DM.

An Indie game developer could send something like: “🎮 Stoked to have you in our gamer's guild! Next week, we’re going to feature the best content creators in the indie gaming space on our profile. Share your most thrilling or funny gameplay moment, fan art, or cosplay with #[yourgametitle] and tag us to be featured on our feed! “

drop yacht

  • Use a Listener node for the mention. You can set the listener to check for the hashtag in a post mentioning you made by the user. Set a “no response action time” duration of 2400 hours to wait for the user to make this post.

The journey can continue like this:

  • Delete the node for the “User Responds” path. If the user creates a post mentioning you with the hashtag , you’ll have to manually follow up with them using the Inbox feature inside DropYacht and engage them based on the post they made. This allows for a personalized response tailored to the user's specific post, enhancing the user experience and engagement.
  • For the “User does not respond” path, you can send a DM to end the journey: "Not ready to share your game moments yet? No pressure! Keep enjoying the game and remember, our community loves seeing new heroes rise. When you're ready to showcase your adventures, we'll be here!"
