  • Upon successfully making your pledge, Share that you’ve backed Yakuza 893 #1 and tag PopCultHQ!

Sharing that you’ve backed the campaign, for those who don’t know, is made extremely simple by Kickstarter. Upon your making pledge, the confirmation screen with the “Congratulations from Kickstarter” will give you the opportunity to Share the news on either Facebook, Twitter, or both! This option is also made available to you upon receiving your confirmation email from Kickstarter, where they give another opportunity to Share on both outlets.

But how do you tag PopCultHQ? We’re glad you asked!

  • Facebook: Simply type “@PopCultHQ” and we should appear
  • Twitter: Simply type “@CultHQ

That’s it! Just so everyone is on the same page…Every pledge that tags PopCultHQ is entered into the Skype with Kelly Bender. EVERY Pledge! And before anyone asks, YES! You CAN enter more than once! What if you’ve already pledged? That’s fine too! Announce that you’ve pledged on either social media outlet and tag PopCultHQ. EVERYONE CAN WIN! For EVERY pledge made between the contest dates, as long as you tag PopCultHQ and have your pledge successfully fulfilled at the end of the Kickstarter campaign, then you just may be on your way to having a Skype session with Kelly Bender!

*** Drawing will take place on Sunday, February 12th after entrants’ eligibility is confirmed by their successful pledge.
