Hey guys and gals So I've been pestering my friend for some time, drop the dayjob and put your energy towards something that at least is yours. He's smart but also responsible, father of two, mortgage - you know the deal. Long story short, he launched a Kickstarter and while I'm by no means an expert, I thought I would be involved in planning and execution, but only when it had been live for 5 days, without much traction, was I notified. So the product is cool but after some poking around, I came to the conclusion we'd have to go big. I think we're onto something, he's gonna do a custom product which ties in with a US presidential candidate which likes to refer to himself in the 3rd person ... and he's doing a making of video, which I'm hoping we can push hard on the 'Tube. At the same time this is a learning curve for me, I have minimal experience - have a few channels which I've never spent a lot of time on. But I want to give it a damn good try. So I figured I'd try and reach out to the experts. I've set the goal of making the youtube charts (gotta think big!), and I'm working on my action plan. Promo-wise I'm looking at fb groups, reddit, digg, stumble, delicious, reaching out to a selected media list. I know I'm missing out, so would love some input here. Are there any tools or services which I should look into for speeding things up? There is a bit of budget to play with. Hope to hear back and hope you have a great weekend!
