1. Have No Fear.
There's no such thing as a bad idea at OMB. It's all about quick thinking. Don't be scared of sharing an idea.
Remember, your ad reflects on your character and the OMB community. So respect everyone. A zero tolerance approach will be taken to work that oversteps boundaries.
Most entries are retweeted. Retweets are not endorsements.
The more people/Twitter feeds you mention in your tweets and relevant hashtags you include, the more chance you will have of people sharing it. Tweet your ideas to influencers and celebrities. And, if they RT, your entries have the potential to go viral.
You can now tag people into images on Twitter. If you are tagged in a tweet you're likely to share it. So get tagging people!
Don't start your tweet with an @. It will only go to the person you are mentioning and you will be hindering it's chances of getting shared.

6. Multiple Photos.
Twitter now allows you to attach multiple photos to a tweet. But when it comes to OMB entries, don't!! Tweeting your entries separately means that you have more chance of having your ideas seen and shared.
Putting @OneMinuteBriefs and #OMBLE in your Twitter bio guarantees you a follow from OMB. It is also a quick shortcut for you to get involved each day. Make sure you don't miss out on those prizes!!

10. Get involved.
Stick at it. If you don't win straight away. Look at the winners and their simplicity. Learn from them. Keep entering. Try different things. There are no rules and restrictions here apart from quick one minute ideas. Scribbles are valued as much as photoshopped ideas. The idea is king. Enter every day. Not only will you improve your creative thinking, you'll meet some amazing new friends, win prizes and experience some incredible opportunities. OMB is a fantastic community and we want you all to be a part of it. Show your love for great ads - like and retweet the best.
And finally, remember you're an OMBLE.
