Social Media/IHub Posting Bible
Courtesy of DDAmanda
do not share this with anyone you do not trust.
Goal: Your goal is to catch
eyeballs. The more eyeballs you catch,
the more peeps will buy. Also what you are aiming for is for people to do some
DD on the stock.....to investigate it more. Then they should see what a great
stock you found for them to make money on. In addition, your goal is to provide
good DD and put a positive light on your stock. The reason for this is partly
to offset the shit that the shorting crews will post.
Do not underestimate the importance of
positive stuff and DD on your stock's message boards. New investors will Google
your stock when they hear about it and what they see will affect their decision
to buy or not.
Shorting Crews: Shorting and driving the
stock price down is Big Business. If you're wondering why your wonderful company's
price is deteriorating, just look at her message boards. Chances are the shorting
crews are doing a number on your stock. They will find negative shit. And if
not they will make it up. Take all the above to the bank, cause I've seen it
happen over and over.
Most longs don't have a clue as to what's
going on. Try to do your part to support your company. Longs have to work 5-10
times harder than bashers cause it's 5-10 times easier to drop a stock than
let her grow........remember that.
You need an IHub Membership to do Symbol Searches, etc. This is Gold. Make sure you get one if you don't already have one. For the benefits you get, the pittance of a price is well worth it.
The Posting Commandments
0. NEVER respond to a basher. Tell all your fellow longs to NEVER respond to a basher. If anybody responds to a basher send them a private message/email/whatever and tell them to STOP.
1. ALWAYS put the symbol somewhere in the
post. This helps add it to the buzz cloud. And your post will show up on site
symbol searches and Google searches.
2. Try for a provocative title, i.e.the
first 8 words of your post.
3. The first 8 words becomes the title/subject
line. So make them count. If you have a / or a - between 2 words with no spaces...that
counts as one word. You can use this to add more than 8 words to your subject.
After you post look at the page, to make sure all the important stuff shows
up in the message list.
4. First compose your post. Then before
you hit submit, select it all and copy the text. (Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C). Then repost
it on 2 other boards. Use paste (Ctrl-V).
4A. There is an option on IHub where all your posts automatically get Tweeted on Twitter. Set that option!
5. Try to put some DD in your post. You
can get DD from recent news, filings, the share structure, a chart, etc. However
if your stock is running/doing good, an occasional: 'ABCD ........WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEe'
6. Post to some hole in the wall boards.
Those people really appreciate new guys posting. But dont just pump.....put
some meat in your posts there. Youll be surprised how much response there
is on these boards.
7. Your post should Always respond to someone elses
post. When you do a search on the symbol (IHub Talk in DDAmanda),
youll get a list of every post that mentioned the symbol on IHub...respond
to one of those. But you can also respond to some of the big wigs on IHub...or
your friends also even if they're not talking about your stock. The symbol search
will only work if you're a paying member of IHub. I highly recommend you do
that so you can search every post on the entire site that mentions that symbol.
This is pure gold.
8. ALWAYS respond to someone when you post.....never
just do a new post. And try to keep a convo going. One long talking to another long(s) or other members is powerful. And it's easy to do. Just keep responding to posts in your Mail Box.
9. Advanced: Post in some crazy way. You
can look at some of my PTOI posts for examples. The goal is to make it stick
in peoples minds...or to make their brains light up...lol. Stuff like
its on the tip of my toe....instead of tongue....lol. Just
some crazy shit.
10. NEVER, EVER EVER respond to a basher. That just
puts it in their mailbox and makes it easy for them to reply with more of their
11. Never just post a link. That makes
people work. People dont like to work. SO, copy/paste the text, a screenshot,
or part of whatever it is....then add the link.
12. Remember that for every guy that posts,
theres probably 50 that just lurk. Thats your audience for the most
13. Try to post a picture, a video, a screenshot
of some DD..something visual. Here's the best screenshot program around: ScreenHunter
And if you want to add some text, or highlight
stuff on a picture, this is the best program for editing/resizing/etc pictures:
FastStone Image Viewer.
You can add text, arrows, etc to your
screenshots to make them have more impact.
Putting videos in your post is powerful. Every YouTube video has this id (in
purple) somewhere in the URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pe0HZyT7Fdk
. Now you can insert your video like this on IHub: [yt]pe0HZyT7Fdk[/yt].
Just use the ID of the video.......the part that comes after ?v= in the URL
of the video.
14. If you're married to a stock or in
it for the long haul: Make a text file with all your DD posts, so you just have
to copy/paste on subsequent days.
You can also create a webpage, a Google
Doc (Google Docs is a Wonderful Thing to collaborate on documents), or a DropBox
file with your posts and other people's good posts. Then give the link to other
longs so they can just copy/paste from that file to post. Try to get everybody
to work together and do their part in posting. Start a Telegram
Group. You can bet the bashers have one. Longs have to work 5-10 TIMES HARDER
than bashers. It's a hell of a lot easier to drop a stock than to raise it.
15. If you post on BBs or MOMOs
boards.......youre gonna have to get creative. So your post sticks out.
Cause those boards get swamped with posts. And for the most part its ineffective
to post there. But one or 2 posts is OK. Also if most of the posts are bold...make
yours plain. Put your subject/first line in italics....it will show up that way in the message list. And you can start it with something that catches the eye. Like
'Here's what I think about XXXX.' or 'Did you know that XXXX....etc'
16. If you're a mod on a board do NOT delete basher's posts UNLESS they break
TOS. If you delete valid posts....no matter HOW wrong you think they are, they
will get restored. Then they get the Pretty Green Arrows, which is BAD.
17. Keep your posts short and sweet. Nobody is gonna read a tome of a post.
Bashers will try to push your buttons, and they are VERY GOOD at it. DO NOT
Fall for this shit. Keep your EGO under control. Just counter their bullshit
with other posts (remember to respond to a Long..Never respond to them).
Remember that bashers are sociopathetic ASSHOLES. They'd love nothing better
than to drive the stock to no bid....and they would dance a jig and piss on
your grave if given the chance. You CANNOT argue with them and expect ANY results.
They don't give a shit. Do Not Let them get your goat.......Keep your ego in
check.....take some deep breaths...lol. Even if they call your CEO a 'shit for
brains', which is perfectly OK with IHub. Every once in awhile you can
respond to them.....'That's utter bullshit' is a good response.
IHub TOS. It's EASY. You can talk about POSTS. You CANNOT talk about other members.
Address the MESSAGE...not the Messenger.
17. If you're a mod, you can do this ONCE
in a while: Delete a good DD post and then restore it. If anybody asks you can
say you screwed up. BUT, that good DD post will get the Pretty Green Arrows.
Do Not overuse this trick!
18. DO NOT FUCK UP as a mod, cause IHub
will remove you, and then a basher just might take your place.
18.5 NEVER respond to a basher. No matter WHAT the fuck they say. NEVER.
19. On a stock just starting out, fill
all 6 mod slots with longs, so bashers won't get a spot.
20. If a basher posts something nasty,
or God forbid gets a post restored (with the Pretty Green Arrows) you need to
get that post rolled off the first page. So all the longs should post as much
as they can until the post is gone from the first page. Not many people will
go to previous pages.
21. NEVER trust PM (Private Messages) on
IHub.....there's not much 'private' about them if you catch my drift. Use EMails,
or Telegram instead.
22. Keep an eye on your Removed
Posts . If a basher mod has removed one of your posts and that post did
not break IHub TOS, ask for a Review. They will restore your post and you'll
get the Pretty Green Arrows.
If it keeps happening Complain
Bitterly to IHub (Private Msg to Admin). There is live support now also.
Maybe you can get that basher mod removed.
23. If you REALLY want to go toe to toe
with a basher, look at this guy's posts. He was the Pro from Dover when it comes
to doing that. But you'll have to REALLY know your company, and do DD to counter/argue
with these basher fucks: http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/profilea.aspx?user=25583 And mostly it's a waste of time.
24. You can also play with your signature
(you can put an image there). I'm married to PTOI, so you can look at some of
my posts. Remember that you cannot have anything in your signature that refers
to a particular stock, so you'll have to get creative. http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/profilea.aspx?user=2760
25. If you get suspended and wind up in
jail.......be a man/woman and don't post there. Suck it up and do your time.
Post here instead: http://investorshangout.com/
......btw....there's a file and a secret way out of jail. It's under the ....aaarrrghhhaaahhh
26. You can send people a PM and ask them
what they think of your stock. You can do the same to one of the Popular Members
27. NEVER respond to a basher fuck. NEVER. EVER.......ever.
28. The ONLY Exception to responding to Bashers is this: If bashers are posting a LOT, you can respond to all of them with some DD posts, or just any post. What this will do is get the board on the Breakout Boards list, because of excessive posts. This will generate IBalls.
29. IHub has a feature that will Tweet all your posts. Make sure that setting is active.
At the bottom are a few
good boards to post on. But what you also want to do is pick a post from the
symbol search/IHub Talk thats on an off the wall board and respond to
it. Thats how you find hole in the wall boards. Once you find em, respond
to someone there..maybe the mod and post your new stock.
Here's a lot of good boards to post on:
Good IHub Boards
Most Followed Members. Maybe you should respond to one of these as well: Popular
Here's a good forum that's getting very popular (and that is looser than IHub
as far as TOS). The format is similar to IHub. Sign up and start posting there
Some really good IHub Boards:
There are other stock forums also. Just
do a Bing.com Message
I would avoid Yahoo for the most part. Once bashers start hitting the board,
it gets totally out of control.
If the Yahoo Board is halfway clean, you can post there.
