Request the ‘’Settle Down’’ Single and Video from Radio and TV Music Channels
Let’s help ‘’Settle Down’’ reach #1 on the charts not only by downloading the single,but by requesting the song from radio! I had put together a ”Push and Shove Support Thread” on the official No Doubt forum here that has contact information for radio stations in all 50 states,as well as international stations,and other helpful information to support ”Settle Down” and future singles and videos from ”Push and Shove”. Be sure to check it out and request ”Settle Down” from your local radio stations-you can also find worldwide radio stations at RadioLocator.com.
We can also contact TV music channels to ask them to add the ‘’Settle Down’’ music video to their playlists! MTV is notorious for not playing many music videos anymore,but we can try contacting them and other channels like VH1,FUSE,MuchMusic in Canada,as well as any international TV music channels we know. Again,there is contact information for these music channels in the forum thread.
Let’s Get #SettleDown Trending on Twitter Today!
Let’s all try to get #SettleDown trending worldwide on Twitter today! It would also be awesome if we can get ‘’No Doubt’’ trending again,as it did recently after Lady Gaga’s tweet. Here are some trending tips:
Set your Twitter account to public. Your tweets will only show on the public timeline and contribute to trending topic if it’s public.
Always include the key words (#SettleDown,etc.) when tweeting.
Only use the hashtag ONCE per tweet, or it will be counted as spam.
Starting tweeting early and often on the day of the trending effort.
When tweeting,retweet the tweets of others who are tweeting the hashtag,but make sure to do it manually(copy and paste the tweet and type ‘RT’). If you do it using the ReTweet button,it won’t count.
Spread the word to friends and any ND/Gwen fans you know,as well as on social networking sites like facebook,twitter,tumblr,etc.
