Posted on 16 November, 2015 by Team Wishberry
Easy to connect with celebs and influencers! – Explain who is an influencer as wellAnd influencer is someone who has not only a huge following and clout on Twitter, but also someone who’s an opinion leader in their area of interest. Sometimes, one retweet from a Twitter influencer is all you could need to give your film promotions or your personal account that extra boost. And it's rather easy to get, if you have good work to show and ask nicely. Apart from influencers, you can also have fun conversations with your followers or people who could be prospective fans. No one minds it as long as you're being funny, helpful or interesting. And conversations are the first step in building a community.

You can leverage hashtags to promote your filmsA hashtag is a type of label or a tag that makes it easier for users to find content with a specific theme or topic. If you're promoting your upcoming film, then you can use popular hashtags such as #indiefilm so that word about your film spreads to people who will be interested in that hashtag. Or, you can simply create your very own hashtag, which you could use in every tweet. This way, even your supporters will start using them. So, when someone wants to know what exactly everyone's on about with your hashtag, all they need to do is click on it and everything anyone's ever said using it will appear on one timeline. Another clever thing you can do is to take an already trending hashtag and use it in your tweet to promote your film. So everyone who's talking about that hashtag will discover you and your film and voila!
