Community members, here is your chance to stroke your innate creativity and design skills to win a bounty in our content creation campaign. All you need to do is produce and share promotional content for the XTRABYTES project & upcoming documentary.
To propel our marketing blitz, we invite our talented community members (present and future) to submit and market their content to promote the upcoming documentary release and the XTRABYTES project in general. It is suggested that these videos (vines, vlogs, etc) be about 30 seconds, but longer submissions are also accepted without prejudice.

Observations and Suggestions
- When using tags in social media, no more that 5 or 6 should be used in any single post (preferably as low as 4) to avoid looking like spam.
- Tags should generally be relevant to the post, like things covering blockchain, crypto, fintech. data, etc. But you may find it appropriate to use more general tags such as USA, TV Documentaries or Bounties that are relevant to our scenario.
- You may wish to use @ tags for individuals and entities who are industry influencers.
- Avoid using totally unrelated tags just because they are trending such as #blacklivesmatter #covid – these are important subjects but are no way related to what we are trying to achieve and can be seen in a “jumping on the band wagon” sort of a light.
