Done! I have so many YouTube channels I think we may have gotten you to that 100 subs! And if you want us to share the link in a tweet or something- consider pre-writing a tweet (see my example a few posts up) so we don’t get something wrong! :slight_smile:

Hey guys, I’m trying to get us noticed by various geek/nerd celebrities of varying levels of celebrity and having others share us is the best way to do that. I put a stock tweet in the ask, but I would recommend doing it in your own voice as if you were recommending to a friend, that way it doesn’t look like a coordinated tweet effort. THANKS!

  • Ask: Share our show with various geek/nerd circles/celebs
  • Show name: Flagon
  • Link: http://bit.ly/WatchFlagon
  • Prewritten tweet/Facebook post options: (NOTE: Please re-write in your own voice so the shares don’t seem coordinated, but keep the hashtag and twitter link)
  • "Hey, have you seen @flagonseries yet? I think you’d like it! http://bit.ly/WatchFlagon "

(Kyla) #11

Ask: please follow To The Max on Instagram!
Show name: To The Max
Link: @tothemaxwebseries on instagram
Extras: it would be real cool if you left a like or a comment on our recent posts!
