The Ultimate Skateboarder: Week 1 Update!
Thank you to all our amazing contestants that entered The Ultimate Skateboarder 1… in Week 1!
You flatground pioneers, look what you’ve done: http://starbeat.tv/the-world-of-freestyle/
The quality of the submissions is simply – SPECTACULAR!
We love your creativity, locations and strategy… as you know, this is a 3-Stage Contest and here’s a refresher: http://starbeat.tv/ultimate-skateboarder-1-scoring/
Note that Scoring is live and this contest allows Daily Voting in the qualifying round. Some contestants have larger followings, but daily voting helps younger contestants with smaller followings to get more support. Quick help tip on how to vote: http://starbeat.tv/how-to-vote-help-video/
We are putting Freestyle on the map & we want more awareness and audience (+ hopefully subscribers) to see you do your best stuff – all in one place! So far, an impressive start – thanks & congrats – and this should get even more exciting as we go!
Also check out the quick links on the right – where you can easily gain access to all features.
Here are some hot & crispy TIPS:
Daily Voting: Vote for any video once per day. Depending on what time zone you are in (it may not reset at midnight), but as long as the ratings slider bar has reset to 50 (mid-point) when you are logged in you can vote for that video again! We’ll produce some media for this as well, but this is just a quick tip for now, a preview so you know what to look for.
Stage 1 Reminder: Top 30 goes to the next round and we’ve got 21 entries so far. Keep an eye on this visual Q1 leaderboard: http://skateboarding.starbeat.tv/search/hashtags/contestant/videos and make sure you’re on that list.
Engage Your Social Subscribers: text is cool, pic is better, but video rules! Check this out: http://starbeat.tv/community-tip-how-to-get-more-votes-starbeat-contest-points/ (2 video examples provided) & also this so you can seed your promos in as many networks as you can: http://starbeat.tv/make-your-social-networks-work-for-you/
Official Contest Social Tag: #UltSk8Br & we’ll repost, retweet, every chance we get!
Ideas for links that you can share: your profile page, your contest page, leaderboard, map, our intro announcement on StarBeat channels… be creative and have FUN!!! Make it easy for your subscribers to see your stuff with a single click, so paste the web addresses (URL’s from the adress/search bar) in your posts. Idea: Put up a banner on your social profile, creativity matters – and check out what your peers are up to (subscribe to them too). Ultimately, we want everyone to learn some lasting promo skills during this contest.

Don’t be surprised if they are personally addressing their fans, instead of giving away their products & such! Everyone’s too busy and don’t expect anyone to show up if you don’t remind them. We hope this tip lights up your wheels way beyond this contest, but here’s your chance to practice while having fun, and while we’re freestyle flattening the Earth.
