Social Media

Here is a list of FB groups you should join and post in.
Please remember that you should post in Estonian in Estonian groups to make sure you have the best impact, even if your show is in English.

Here an easy sentence to drop into Estonian FB groups

I’m performing at Heldeke, come check out my show! = Ma esinen Heldekes, tule chekka mu showd

Or also ask your venue to help with some quick translations. Don’t use Google Translate, it will most probably not be correct and you’ll come across sounding weird.
