Explaining the Call for Help and Views

I'm trying a lot of new and somewhat weird-in-the-world-of-comics promotional ideas to build an audience for my stories, so I signed up for a class in marketing. Related to the class in marketing is a "scavenger hunt" they produce as a way to get people engaged in social media and push them to experience using all kinds of forms.


I've been working hard on it and I'm in the top ... six? as far as I can tell... of contestants who maxed out on points. So I'm in the tiebreaker round and the biggest point value is an insane challenge to get the most views on a video in response to another YouTube video by Sunday at 4pm (pretty sure that's EST, but I'll have to check.


I've posted one video before - ever. For an earlier challenge on the scavenger hunt. Everybody I'm competing against already has an audience and a business that's formally launched and all. This is such a long shot it isn't even funny.


So I bought the iMovie app (my iPad, a Mother's Day gift, is too old to have it standard) and I did my best on short notice to create a video appropriate for the challenge. The good news is that it's short, has exciting music, and is true. I really wish I had more of my work on the actual iPad because I didn't have time to take photos of everything I've been working on!


Here's the video: 


It would mean so much to me personally if you'd view, like, and share this. Also - if this works, I may have hit on an effective way to promote comics that you can use, too!

Thank you! It wasn't that difficult to put together once I had the app and poked around it a bit, but I'm glad I had photos and video on my iPad *before* they announced what the tiebreaker challenge would be! I was not going to do another "talking head" video... ;)

Thank you! I'll have to post about how I made it and ways I could improve on it, in case that's useful for anyone else.

Looks good

Thanks! I really think that as comics creators, this may be a natural extension of storytelling - we're already thinking in terms of storyboards and framing action with words.

Nice trailer Paula. You can also try the advertising on youtube. You set your own price.

:) thank you Gerard - I'm trying! If I get any cash I could afford vendor space at a local con - I'd be happy to promote anyone at CCAS at my table :)
