We've hit our halfway mark! Congrats! Challenge #4 is about promoting your channel!
All of us shout have at east a few (if not all of the following) a personal Facebook page, a Facebook fan page, Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, a blog, Periscope, Google+ or Tumblr...so let's make sure that we are doing our due diligence to promote ourselves..
This challenge has two parts.
Part One: Come up with 3-4 RELEVANT hashtags to include on each post. Of course #IamYTNoir can be one of them. (try to come up with maybe 6-8 in total so you can interchange them.) What I mean by relevant is highly searched hashtags. Let's skip the "funny" or "witty" hashtags that we make up ourselves because if no one is searching them, then not many people are likely to see them.
Part Two: Promote your latest video 3-4 times a day for the next few days. Write a unique post for each social media platform and post at different times throughout the day. That means don't just copy and paste the same post over and over, switch it up a little to catch people's attention. So let's say you post to Facebook at 1:00pm, Twitter at 3:00pm, post to Instagram at 6:00pm, etc. and shout out your vid on Snapchat at 8:00pm. This is just an example...you know when your followers are most active, so go for what you now.
Helpful hint, you can sign up for a free Hootsuite account and link your social media accounts and auto-schedule your posts. Facebook fan page posts can also be scheduled. #HappyPromoting <3
