So we here at Taurian Films have started putting out some material online in the form of teasers for our upcoming Web series, Insourcing and a few episodes of our weekly mock reality TV show, Dial-A-Ranger. And while it goes against conventional wisdom and logic, part of me was thinking I could just post it, put a couple tags on it, well more than a couple and the hits and views would roll in.
Not so much.
So after a few weeks and a small number of views on all the content I started looking at what you can do to increase that. Turns out after some Googling, there are lots of articles on it full of tips and strategies and such to get more eyeballs on your product. You have to hustle just as hard as you did making the thing, to get it out there in front of people. It’s the interwebs. It is infinite and given that, you have a huge amount of stuff you are competing against. Some of it directly against you because they are putting out the same thing, others not so much, but they still remain competition because they are online. Quick lesson to learn.
That’s something we will be kicking around in an upcoming Bulls Deep podcast. Curious to see what Mau has to say on the subject and to see if we can come up with some ways to get people looking, some interesting contests or other incentive laced efforts.
We shall see.
