Default Promoting #TheFantasyTrip on Social media (TWITTER)

Hi All

I'll try to keep this brief.

We have 11 days before the launch of #TheFantasyTrip Kickstarter - Then the run itself (30 days?)

In that time we all need to do as much as we can to spread the word far and wide - Not just tweaking rules and chatting with like minded people that are already fully aware of it.

Unfortunately I will be out of action for a couple of weeks (back in the game next month)

Here are a couple of quick tips we can all use to help promote.

1 - Always when taking about TFT use agreed hashtags - #TFT #TheFantasyTrip #Melee #Wizard

2 - Try to link in @SJGames and encourage your readers to follow and #RT

3 - Make your TFT posts visually attractive - (relevant pictures that catch the eye and make others want to share your post)

4 - Encourage 'POSITIVE' engagement - to draw potential new player in.

5 - SHARE posts from other TFT fans - especially @SJGAMES @TFTGuy @WGTabletop attached to Steve Jackson.

- - - - - - -
More ideas to come - please add your own - ALL positive ideas to make this as big as possible are good.
xx

Things are starting to move quite nicely on Twitter.
Some really great - informative posts from

@SJGames / @WGTabletop - Tutorials - video links

@TFTGuy - links to web + articles

@philipjreed - links and updates.

Look out for the hashtags - especially #TheFantasyTrip - Please LIKE all that are relevant, and RT / share them when you can. **This is really important, as it is what makes certain phrases and links trend - and drives them out to a wider audience.

Have a lovely weekend - Play some #TFT with your old existing sets, and post reports and photos to show everyone how much fun it is. - Then get everybody here to like / share / comment.

Ah, thanks for the hash tags!


I have my old timey copies of Melee and Wizard out of storage. I'll post photos to Twitter.



I scored a coup a few years back when I got the Deluxe T&T kickstarter mentioned on BoingBoing, and the same for the V&V kickstarter. Not sure if I can make lightning strike a third time!

It doesn't matter how many followers you have - If those 300 are totally different from the people that already follow @SJGames, and a few of them follow - You've made a difference.

If you encourage those 300 to share something you post about TFT, and one of them has thousands of followers - suddenly YOU have reached a lot more people.

Nice one :)

I will have to set up some photos myself soon as well. I look forward to seeing them - (Are you the same name on Twitter?)

My tweet today with a photo of my old copies of Melee and Wizard got way more attention that i thought it would.

Let's keep it up

Post pictures of your old copies if that is something you don't mind doing.

Tomorrow I'm going to do a pic of the big three books

Posted pictures of my old #Melee and #Wizard sets on Twitter this morning; added some commentary. Goal: plug the Kickstarter.



Maybe I'll add a post or two if I can find my old #TFT solo adventures.

I'm trying to Retweet any posts that promote the #TheFantasyTrip kickstarter, and will try to follow as many enthusiasts / fellow TFTers that I can.

I may even create a group - so watch this space.

I'm also posting photos of Fantasy Trip related stuff - (old photos, newer creations, and perhaps make up a couple of shareable comic strips)

some of these things worked really well when I co-ran the social media campaign for a book launch - The Anteater That Didn't - (Succesful Kickstater campaign)

I have created a list of people that are talking about #TheFantasyTrip and the @Kickstarter campaign. Feel free to subscribe to it and use it ,and to let me know if you'd like to be added. - THE FANTASY TRIP LIST - by Cardiceian

Only a few days left to go until the Kickstarter launches.

Then I think it's 30 days? - for the full run - (correct me if I'm wrong on that)

We've been throwing the #TheFantasyTrip idea about for a few days, including pictures , memories etc.

Any ideas how we can all push it even further?
