I'll be the first to reply after talking with my kids and they told me some of the things they think Rhett and Link would like to see... Lots of comments and favorites on their YOUTUBE videos, Twitter their videos alot, wear Tshirts, email their videos to friends and family alot... and all this seems right on... but I know I am missing something.... !!!
heh heh, i bet financial support would help them too. last year i saw that ustream features a tip jar, you could go to their ustream.tv page and make use of that if you happen to have extra $$ floatin around. :)

i think it's a cool idea. you tip your waiter and all they do is bring you food. well rhett and link bring us food for the soul baby!
Great Idea Peter !!!!!! And yes... FOOD FOR THE SOUL BABY !! LOVE IT !

buying our DVD, cds, and shirts is great. But i think the most powerful thing you can do is share "us" with your friends and family...usually by sharing one or two specific videos you think that person would like-- and not in a mass email kinda way, but in a personal recommendation kinda way. and, hey, if you know someone in the entertainment industry or the marketing sector of a big company, introduce them to us and what we do! but you never know who's connected to who, so share us with everyone :) thanks for asking!
First of all, THANKS for being a part of this Kommunity. That's one main way to help. We're really hoping to continue to see this network grow, because we know y'all are the key to this whole thing.

To echo what Link already said, I think that the best thing you can do right now is to help build the fanbase one person at a time. I had an interesting conversation with a friend just yesterday about this. He came to the premiere of the movie, and he and his wife brought another couple. He said, "Our friends LOVED the movie, and in preparation for watching it, I sent them to your website. They spent the past week watching all your videos, and they love you guys now. "

He then went on the explain that he finds that he knows a lot of people who don't know who we are, but when he introduces them to our work, they become big fans. I don't mean to over simplify this thing, but because we're not "promoted" in the traditional sense (via a record label or TV network), this "word of mouth" method is by far the most effective way to build interest in our work.

Then, once people become fans, they'll buy music, DVDs, and merchandise, not to simply support us, but because they actually WANT the stuff.

So, while we definitely encourage you all to buy our stuff, introducing family/friends to our work is the ideal way to help this thing keep going. And, just like Link said, I think that sending links to 2-3 videos that you think they would enjoy is the best way to do that. Sending them to our website can be a bit overwhelming, especially for people who are really busy or not internet savvy.

And, to complete my novel, I'll answer your other question about how we keep this thing going. Thankfully, we're able to make a living through web video, so it's become a self-sustaining business. We have to come up with new ideas and new videos in order to feed our families, so there's a clear motivation. On top of that, we kinda just can't help it. Even when we're relaxing or just hanging out, we're developing ideas. Once you get into the habit of developing new concepts, the momentum builds.
Thanks Guys! I have a clear picture of what we need to do ! and I am MOTIVATED ! Let me know if you need anything.
