    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]marketing the video, and I guess that would be to get a high-level[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]SEO, and attempting to get the video to go viral as much as possible from[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]the YouTube level alone.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]Your task will strictly be focused on the YouTube/Google side of things,[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]I will handle SoundCloud/Twitter/Tumblr, since I can get a following,[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]or already have established a following on those mediums.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]So you will have help. In addition,[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]I have a publicist/public relations firm/PR firm[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]who will handle all the music releases by getting[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]PR is not enough, nowadays to really blow up, you[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]need a trickle down effect on all avenues or lanes.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]Ive noticed that Music Videos that happen to get a[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]lot of views on YouTube, happen to cause a lot of[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]people to start talking about it, or pay attention to the[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]video. If the video has unique features, then people[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]Vines. When a music video is meme'd out on Vine,[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]it's guaranteed to spread all over the place and[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]"blow up." (See: Bobby Shmurda - "Hot N*gga"[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]and OG Maco - "U Guessed It" , both have an [/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]immense Vine presence and their music videos[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]have a ton of views)[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]With that in mind, I've packed as much cultural[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]references as possible and stuff that is GIFable[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]or Vine-able in the strategy, and I will keep doing[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]that for all future music videos. My friend works for[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]a big fashion/music site, and he told me for my artist[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]to be successful, we need to release stuff every 2 weeks,[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]doesnt have to be a music video, but we need to follow[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]that type of rhythm, So i will handle that.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]Another thing that will help,[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]and this is probably where your expertise will come into plays,[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]is we have guest features/verses/beats[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]from already established artists who already each have extreme followings.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]Some of them are already famous (theyve done work with Nicki Minaj, Drake[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]has spoken about them in public, theyve worked with Kendrick Lamar, etc,[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]thus have been mentioned with some of the biggest stars in the music industry)[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]So these artist names, will probably be needed to get taken over through SEO.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]For example, if my artist had a song (featuring Drake), I know this is highly unlikely but[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]youd have to try to get the keyword "Drake" as the #1 result.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]Given the possibility that a feature verse from someone big as Drake or equivalent,[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]I'd need a veteran who knows what they're doing. i dont know all this stuff about YouTube[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]buying views and all that because I keep reading that people's videos get taken down,[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]so again, I need someone who knows what they're doing and someone who has incredible[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]credentials so that we can keep killing the videos every time. Every video has a keyword in it[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]that will need to be dominated, I planned it out that way ahead of time anyway. The first music video[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]will be the name of the beatmaker, he gets like 2 million plays on soundcloud every time he releases a song[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]and he is my friend that I know in real life, Im always at his shows backstage with him. He will post the music video[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]on his twitter as well. People search for his name often, so I'd like that when you google his name or search his name[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]on YouTube, that you find our music video. It'd be awesome if that music video had more views than any other music[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]video with his name on it because then I can tell him, hey look, the most views a music video has with your name on it[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]is the song we did together. That helps with situations where maybe he's trying to send one of his best beats to another[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]already established artist, and I convince him to give it to us instead.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]this may be in the wrong section, but essentially, im looking for recommendations,[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]and other strategies that I may want to look at to intertwine everything together.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]Please post the names of usernames or redirect me to a site that has a service for this,[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]Itd be ideal if I could find just one person or one company to deal with all this for me while[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]I take care of the rest, I have a tumblr following because i have a fashion following,[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]people like the rare articles of high fashion/streetwear that I wear, and im gonna be intertwining that[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]into the plan as well.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]So yeah, please help me out. This is obviously paid work, and we will need you for the rest of our careers.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]Also, if I end up managing more artists, then Im definitely gonna need someone who is going to be around[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]forever. i had the perfect person for this before, but due to YouTube changes and him getting fed up of YouTube[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]and making mad money outside of it, he stopped servicing, So i need someone that'll be in the game, cuz Im[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)]gonna need u and I dont plan on slowing down.[/COLOR]
