UPLOAD TIME


We upload our videos in the evening because this is a time when most of our target audience is at home 
and usually on the web so the chances of them seeing our posts is higher, if we published at 3am then 
its more likely it would get lost in their newsfeed never to be seen.
Because Of time restraints we haven't made a regular weekly upload time, if we were to continue 
on with this project then we would so that viewers would know when to check back in and 
see our videos. We know this strategies is helpful as it what many youtubers do including 
the three we looked in to. 

TWITTER



Much closer to the release of episode two we created a twitter, we were reluctant to do this as we feel 
not many people in our target audience use twitter. Before we started the SMC paper none of us used 
twitter and neither did many of our friends. But we went ahead anyway as we wanted to be able to 
tweet the celebrities that were made in to pancakes and we also thought
 that perhaps twitter is more popular with our overseas target audience.

FEEDBACK



We received some good feedback on our first episode, looking at that it seems people like the humor 
we have used and the over all concept of the videos this has given us confidence that the second video 
should be a success and that we don’t have to change our editing/concepts much.

INSTAGRAM

Like our Facebook page we launched our intsagram profile a few days before our second episode goes 
live. The reason we didn’t launch all our social media at one time is that a viewer is more likely to 
subscribe to each different aspect of our social media over time that if we did it all at once. All at once
 means the view thinks ‘ I cant be bothered liking all these pages, I will just follow their Facebook

FILMING EPISODE 2

Much like the first episode we kept filming very laid back and went with flow.  We posted on the cube
 website that we needed contestants and ended up having 5 people come over. Posting on the cube site
 also means that we have more people exposed to our videos and what we are doing so they are more
 likely to check it out when videos go live.





While filming we found it really important to document the process so that we have lots of content to 
put on our social media sites.


We had good feed back on the quality of our videos so we continued to use the iphone 5s.

FACEBOOK

Facebook will be our main form of social media; it has the most people using it and has the least
 limitations (intsagram = only photos, Twitter = character limit).  We will use face book as a place for
 our audience to see behind the scenes footage and keep updated with what coming up on our channel. 



By showing behind the scenes it gives our Facebook a scene of being exclusive:, People who
 subscribe to our channel wont see this but if you like us on Facebook you can access extra footage.

Our Facebook is easily identifiable as it too is covered in ‘flippin good’ branding so it looks official and
 people instantly know its linked to our videos.

We made the decision to start our Facebook page not at the start of this project but a few days before
 we first uploaded. If we had made it too early people would have forgotten about it by making it a few
 days before hand it keeps things fresh and people are still curious. We regularly uploaded teasers and
 photos to keep people guessing about the content of our videos.


To increase likes on or Facebook page we each individually sent personal requests to our
friends on Facebook this is much harder to decline/ignore that us just making status or sharing
the page (but we did this too anyway).
