Day 103: Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey guys! I didn’t really have a chance to work on Eternal Camping that much today as I had a lot of personal errands to run today. What I did get to do was work some more on the behind-the-scenes data and organized the Hootsuite dashboard so that it’s easier and more efficient to use. Exciting, right?

An update on the Facebook Boost campaign: Eternal Camping has officially gotten 100 likes! That’s pretty exciting and pretty impressive considering how tiny of a budget I gave the marketing campaign. It’ll run for a few more days but so far I consider this a major success! Thanks to all who liked the project, it really means a lot!

Having said that, I wouldn’t expect updates next week as I’m taking a vacation. Have a Happy Turkey Day and I’ll see you the week after!

Day 102: Flipboard

Today I took my time to continue working on adding apps to the Hootsuite dashboard that will provide me with more data. I also started looking over the data I’ve already collected within 24 hours.

I did end up creating a Flipboard magazine for Eternal Camping. If you have a Flipboard account (or it’s on your phone like it’s on mine), you can “follow” my magazine and gets updates through Flipboard. It’s just yet another way to get your daily Eternal Camping update! If you are interested, click here.

I also looked at potentially getting a subreddit but it appears that you need an account that is 30 days and old and needs a certain level of karma to be able to have one. I don’t meet either of those criteria.

An update on the Facebook Boost Campaign: Eternal Camping is now up to 60 likes! That’s a huge improvement from before the campaign where there were only seven likes. Thanks to everyone who has liked the Facebook page so far! It really does mean a lot!

Day 101: Data!

One of the goals this week has been to improve the social networking presence of Eternal Camping. This has included spreading across multiple platforms (Tumblr, Instagram, Google+). It has also included a more active Twitter feed during the week and a Facebook ad campaign that lasts until early next week.

Today’s work was more behind the scenes as I add plug-ins and apps to my Hootsuite dashboard that lets me know more information about how to reach people. Over time, I will be able to use this data to hopefully create more engaging content over social networks.

An update on the Facebook Boost Campaign: 303 people reached and 14 people have liked the page after just one day into the campaign. Thanks to everyone who has liked the Facebook page so far! It really does mean a lot!

Day 100: Facebook & Instagram

Wow, 100 days I’ve been working on this project. That’s pretty amazing. It feels like only yesterday I got the idea for Eternal Camping and I’ve written a script, compiled a budget, and have the rough draft of an Indiegogo campaign ready to go.

My work on expanding the social media presence of Eternal Camping continues this week with two major updates. The first is that the Instagram profile is ready to go. You can “follow” the movie on Instagram by clicking here.

The second major move I made today was the decision to test out the “boost” feature of Facebook. Essentially this advertises a Facebook page or post across Facebook’s many users by paying them real money. The higher budget you have, the more people you reach. I’m going to try boosting the page at a low budget rate and hopefully that will bring more people in.

I’ll take what I learn from the “boost” feature to see if it’s worth using that to promote the Indiegogo page.

Day 99: Twitter and Tumblr

As many of you know, I spent the last week researching social media and ways to improve building a social community for Eternal Camping. Today I started to take some of those lessons by auto-scheduling tweets. For now, it’s mostly just scheduling tweets on suggestions by Hootsuite: articles related to horror, camping, and zombies. I edit these suggestions in an attempt to tie back each tweet to the movie somehow. So now if you follow me on twitter, you won’t just get updates on the project but you’ll also get content related to it as well!

I also went ahead and setup a Tumblr page. You can find it here. I was hesitant at first of getting a Tumblr page largely because it’s essentially a blog service. It’s kinda redundant with a WordPress blog but I felt that the ability to reach more people was worth the redundancy. I’m still experimenting with this on whether I just link back to this blog or just update both with the same information.

Having said that, this will remain the official website home for Eternal Camping.

Day 98: Social Media Research 4

Today I kept working at the social media research. I’ve not only been learning more about how to use hootsuite, including all of the features that it has, but I’m also considering setting up more social media accounts next week including potentially a tumblr account. With hootsuite, I can quickly get updates across all my accounts with seconds. This was a pretty interesting week and I’m hoping that next week I can apply what I’ve learned and further promote Eternal Camping.

Day 97: Social Media Research 3

I continue to research social media. I’m learning a lot! One of things I also did today was set up a Hootsuite account.  With Hootsuite, I can actually manage all of my social media accounts related to the movie from one webpage. This will enable me to promote the movie more efficiently through Facebook, Twitter, and potentially other social media websites. I also created a Google+ page for the site in an effort to continue to build the Eternal Camping brand through Google.  So overall a busy and productive day for Eternal Camping!
