Welcome to our weekly Shameless Self Promo Thread!

In the comments, you are all free to share “Friday Asks,” or specific, actionable things we can all do to help you out.

Format your ask using this template:

*all other comments not using this template will be deleted

  • Ask: [What you want people to help you with]
  • Show name:
  • Link: {episode/trailer/crowdfunding link}
  • Comment Prompt: [If you’re asking people to comment, enter a prompt to make it easier]
  • Preferred Hashtag: {if applicable}
  • Prewritten tweet/Facebook post options (include your show’s social media links, and make sure to keep character limits in mind):

Asks can include:

  • subscribing to your YouTube/Vimeo channel
  • following you on social media
  • liking/commenting on a video
  • reviewing your show on Stareable
  • posting on social media about your show or crowdfunding campaign, etc.

The community as a whole will use its discretion to decide which things are appropriate.

You are not obligated to perform every “ask,” but if you’re going to ask something of us, it’s courteous to at least do one or two things for other people. This is a community, after all

Hi guys!

  • Ask: We have just launched our crowdfunding campaign for the upcoming season (with a sneak peek scene)! Would love if you could check it out/share it.
  • Show Name: Or So the Story Goes
  • Link: www.seedandspark.com/fund/ostsg-knockknock
  • Preferred Hashtag: #OSTSG
  • Prewritten tweet/FB post options: Check out the sneak peek for the upcoming season of OSTSG and see how you can be part of the action! (twitter/insta: ostsg, FB: orsothestorygoes)
  • Extras/Further Info: We obviously understand if you can’t pledge to the campaign (so many projects and so little cash- ha). However, if you’ve got the time, Seed&Spark unlocks some great perks for our projects once we get to 250/500 followers so just clicking on the follow heart on the project page is a HUGE help and doesn’t cost a dime. Thanks you guys!! :two_hearts:

Before I shamelessly ask everyone to help us, want to pass this along. If you’re looking to go on a podcast to talk about your webseries, reach out to Peter at webseriesonfire.com. Just recorded one with him yesterday and it was super easy & fun!

And now:

Ask: Like our Facebook page
Show name: Travisty
Extras: Of course, the more views the merrier, and all our episodes are on FB or our site. But mostly just looking to get our likes up for now! Thaaaaanks!!
