How It Works

Put Yourself on DaBlock

Twitter

Use your Twitter contacts to tell people about your upcoming appearance on Dablock. One of the best ways is to go to a site where you can attract lots of Tweets from people you don't even know. Sites like http://www.thebigtweet.com can help you get started. Also sites like http://www.tweetbig.com will help you attract people who might be interested in similar subjects like music, dance or drama.

Why is this important? Because the more people who know about you, the more opportunity you have to attract votes, make money and connect with professional contacts. It doesn't matter if you know the people who you are reaching out to or not. The thing that matters I that… THEY KNOW ABOUT YOU.

Facebook

Because Facebook has become the standard way of contacting and communicating with friends online, one of the best things to do is create a Facebook Fan Page for yourself under your stage name and send it out to the world.. Find out how to do this on Youtube. It's really easy - http://youtube.com/watch?v=uvcnpBNym10

Send this page out to everyone you know on your Facebook list and then tell them what you are doing and ask for their support by passing your information on to their friends and asking them to support you on Dablock. You will be surprised how many people you will attract to view your performance on Dablock.

Hey Sandra…

Guess what, I have just been selected to appear on a unique website called Da.Block.Online. Dablock is an online hip hop soap opera that features new and unsigned talent like myself. From the dates of ...... to ..... I will be appearing on this program.........

I am trying to get to a professional level and would really appreciate your support. Not only can you see my performance in the ………… Gallery but you also see daily episodes of this bad ass hip hop soap opera when you check out the site. I would really appreciate it if you would go to the site, signup and check me out and vote for me. When you vote for me, it not only helps me financially because part of the voting money comes directly to me, but it can also help to jump start my career as a professional in show biz.
