    Hi,

    I am a comedian, voice actor and animator. I want to make my cartoon characters (or myself) into social media celebrities so I can gain interest of talent agencies in Hollywood.

    - I'm creating a fully animated television "pilot" episode that I want to ultimately shop to networks or talent agencies.

    - I don't have connections in Hollywood and saw "Vine" and "Instagram" stars get attention

    - I can animate fairly quickly for social media like Vine (6 seconds), longer animations are difficult

    - I will do anything "blackhat" and pay for it, money is not an issue

    - My friend who was in a band said that record companies buy views and likes in order to push their musicians into prominence. How do these record companies do this?

    - Do the record companies do a lot of blackhat stuff to make their artists popular on the internet?

    Can you guys break it down to me on how to do this? Or at least guide me in the right direction?

    What advice would you give to someone like me?

    I'll buy views, followers, whatever it takes to get into the eyes of talent agencies.

    Thanks in advance.

    That's great man. Gaining followers is easy if you have original content, especially funny shit and animations. You really won't have a problem at all.
    Buying views and likes is so easy, search the marketplace social networking section.
    If you want real followers (you do), then make social network accounts and start automating everything.
    I won't set anything up for you but If you send me a pm I could give you some general guidlines for botting.
    One more thing, buying real retweets/shoutouts would be a huge boost for you - They come pretty cheap too. Definitely something to consider and can be found in the social media marketplace once again :)

    Money is not an object, as in you have 100K to spend? Or money is not an object, as in you have a few hundred set aside?

    - Regular social media posting (You can get a program or agency to do that)
    - Active in Social Media groups (Or Dummy accounts active in social media groups)
    - Buy Real Followers on social media platforms
    - Buy Re - Tweets / Pins / Like
    - Buy Aged accounts with a big follower base to drive like / views / people to your main account
    - Search this forum for follower / like gaining
    - Use Automation / Bots to drive Twitter Followers, Pinterest Followers, Facebook likes
    - Use SEO to drive your social media accounts to page one of search engines for more organic views
    - Get attention of 'Famous' people with funny pictures / videos
    - Try to add 'famous' people to get them to share your content (This works best with small bands or comedians by posting or tweeting to them regularly)
    - Follow trends (A mock cartoon or video of a current event)
    - Be bold with what you post
    - Be the first to share something (Having the first video on the Ice Bucket challenge when it was 'new' got a lot more views than the last)
    - Submit videos / pics to humor websites
    - Ect

    I can keep going, but a search around the forum will find you more. You have a lot of options to drive people to your social media accounts. The most reliable options I have seen work are:

    - Buy real followers
    - Pester small time actors, comedians and bands by commenting on statuses, posts, and tweets
    - Once you get mentioned, pay out the butt to have a retweet / shout out
    - Repeat the process.

    It takes time, work, and money to get the attention of someone. The most important part is amassing a real following quickly and then getting picked up by a band or actor, even if small time. Once you do this, climb the ladder by liking and commenting on someone more famous or bigger in social media. It is a ripple effect. The important part is unlocking the circle of those people. The persons manager will be following them and that is a faster way to get noticed.

    The reason everyone does not make it to being viral is you need to actually be funny / talented to get noticed. Add luck and great timing to this and the process becomes challenging.

    For example, B - Celeb who you get to follow you back posts something about a bad driver. If you can get a funny video up about their situation in a few minutes of posting, most likely they will like it or share it. If your video or meme sucks they will not share it and you are dead in the water. If you wait more than a few minutes most likely they will not notice.

    Celebrities have also been using their social media presence to change their public image. Social media can be a powerful platform, as it can effectively shape public opinion of an individual or group of people. This can lead to the downfall of some celebrities. These days, celebrities are going beyond text updates and incorporating rich multimedia more often into their online presence. There has also been a significant boom in photo sharing through sites like Instagram and Twitter, and video sharing through services like Viddy and Socialcam. Even audio-based social networking has gained in popularity. Celebrities are up on a pedestal for everyone to see, both making their impact much broader and their missteps far more consequential.

    Sounds like you have quite a bit of talent. It may seem like the most basic of answers in comparison to those mentioned above, but have have tried YouTube? Like actually taking it seriously and putting time and effort into growing a channel? High quality content with some basic search optimization can go a long way - even without any black hat manipulation.

    But I suppose buying some good social media bots would be a good way to get more eyes on yourself. You can also find a lot of people here that can send you as many likes, followers and views as you need.

    You need bots and lots of them! Just go crazy with self promo's across all social media sites.
    That's what One Direction did with great success, many years back.

    Even Obama buy followers in his first campaign.
    In fiverr dot com you con buy hundreds of followers/retweets, etc for $5 USD


    Also you can/should make your own Youtube channel and buy views/suscriptions, in your case i guess its the most obvious step, a lot of people doing some kind of comedy has Youtube channels with millions of followers and get a lot of attention.
    Youtube is the natural way, in your case, because its not only that people talks about you, but people can watch your work.

    Its real that the recording companies purchase views/comments/followers in Youtube, its very easy to discover it, just watch the comments and you will see. Many are just "absadabadsbadsads" kind of comment (random letters) or absolutely generic like "awesome", etc.

    I don't think yopu need any sex tape, many networdks could ban you. You have to take care about your name.

    Good luck!!

    If money is not an issue, why would you want to be found by talent agencies? No need to work then

    I know this will sounds extremely lame because you are on BHW, but if money is TRULY not an issue, a massive and sustained PAID advertising campaign through the social networks directly with your original and hilarious content will be perfect. $5K plus per month on Twitter will also get you verified status and account managers, $10K on FB per month, not sure of the pricing on IG and Vine, but also hit up Snapchat, you'd be surprised how many celebs and talent managers just use it to crap around on, so if you can get a "daily story" paid for millions of people will see it. You'd have to offer to theme it around something already in their content lineup... So for example if they are doing SXSW or something, you would have to animate your characters into something related. But would be HUGE exposure.

    Like many people mentioned above... consistent hard work, original content, boldness, and outsourcing. Forget about sleep.
