What is TGN Army?

TGN Army is a movement generated on Twitter by TGN (through the @tgntv account), Partners, and followers. The movement is designed to promote content for current and prospective Partners of TGN to help network Partners together so that they can grow and get more views.

TGN Army is only as good as those who participate. If everyone who participates only does it for their own self-promotion without promoting others, the movement will ultimately fail.

How Do I Submit a Promotion?

TGN Army promotion is done completely through use of the Twitter hashtag. In order to submit content for promotion, you must format a Tweet properly. We have a few requirements for Tweets in mind:

  1. The Tweet must contain a shortened URL to content. Content can be a video from your Channel, an article on your blog, or just link directly to your YT Channel.
  2. The Tweet must contain the #TGNArmy hashtag.
  3. The Tweet must contain a relevant description of the content.
  4. You must also follow the #TGNArmy hashtag and participate in promoting other content.
  5. You must be a TGN Partner, or looking to become a TGN Partner, in order to participate.
  6. Example Tweet #1: “Just posted a new vid about #SimCity on my Channel. Check it out! http://ow.ly/iK8JP #TGNArmy unite!”
  7. Example Tweet #2: “So close to 2000 subs on my Minecraft Channel http://ow.ly/iK9as, I need a #TGNArmy bump!”

How Do I Promote Other Content?

Simply follow the #TGNArmy hashtag, If you use a program like TweetDeck or HootSuite, you can save a #TGNArmy hashtag search as a stream so that you can easily view updates to it. Then, do the following:

  1. If you see a Tweet with content that you like, Retweet it!
  2. You can also watch the content, like, subscribe, etc. Do this if you’d like others to do the same for your content.
  3. Leave a message, either on the YouTube video, or @reply on Twitter, letting the user know you retweeted, followed, liked, and subscribed, and that you want them to do the same!

I Didn’t Receive Promotion!?!?! WHY NOT!~?!?!?
By nature, there will be more submissions for promotion than people promoting. This means that not every Tweet submitted will be able to be promoted. If you want to increase your chances of getting promoted, be sure your Tweets are formatted properly, and participate by Retweeting content you like from other #TGNArmy users.

I Really Just Want Promotion by @TGNTV. Can I Get That Instead?
Short answer? No. Long answer? Yes. The @TGNTV account will promote TGN Partners through various means, one of which is the #TGNArmy hashtag. We reserve the right to make our own decisions on who and when we post a promotion or Retweet. We’d love to be able promise promotion for everyone from @TGNTV, but the real answer is that we can’t. If we did this, our account would be spamming retweets of Partner content of which eventually nobody would click on (because there would be so many), and thus we would not be able to provide any sort of promotional power whatsoever. We will however dedicate the @TGNTV account to at least 3 (likely more) #TGNArmy promotions per week.

How to increase your likelihood of getting Retweeted/Promoted by @TGNTV:
  1. The Tweet must contain a shortened URL to content. Content can be a video from your Channel, an article on your blog, or just link directly to your YT Channel.
  2. The Tweet must contain a relevant description of the content.
  3. Milestones, such as reaching a certain subscriber number and linking to your Channel.
  4. Spell words correctly.
  5. Be a TGN Partner.
  6. Have TGN branding on your Channel, this can include
    1. A TGN logo in the header of your Channel, identifying you as part of the Network
    2. TGN Central or other TGN Hubs in your sub box
    3. If we can’t see that you are part of the TGN Network, how can we be sure to promote you?
  7. Note that, even by following the above steps, @TGNTV may not necessarily promote or retweet you. We reserve the right to make our own decisions when it comes to this. Following the steps above will greatly increase the likelihood of us doing so, however.
The TGN Alliance

Why is the Chief pointing his finger at you? Does it matter? We do not question his orders, we just execute. When a TGN Partner tweets their gamer video and adds the #TGNArmy hashtag, what do you do? You retweet soldier, you retweet your butt off! When you create a YouTube gaming video and you need backup, just add the #TGNArmy hashtag and our boys will swoop in. We’ve gotta have each other’s backs out there!
