Jack went nuts when he saw that somebody had actually "Liked" his first YouTube video.
He announced the milestone on his channel with a clip called "What Da (Bleep) Happened".
I know you guys are gonna be like 'Dude it's just one like' but it's still awesome to know you guys are there ... even though you're not there, you're there!
He then asked viewers for 3 to 5 more Likes -- to make his dreams come true!
And the community responded -- BIG TIME!
About 4,000 people Liked the video in the first few hours. Many loved the passion Sir Fedora displayed for just one Like.
Since then the video has been viewed more than 2.6 million times.
It has more than 255k Likes -- and all Jack did was ask!

Jack's Twitter following is now more than 40,000 strong.
Will this Work for You?
These results aren't typical.
But some of Jack's techniques could help you build better relationships with your fans -- even if you don't get a bunch of new Likes & followers.
You don’t need a huge following to get lots of engagement on social media.
Just make sure your posts reflect your personality & company's story.

- Tell stories about how your business got started
- Ask fans how you're doing
- Personalize your posts with info about yourself
- Tell fans WHY they should follow your content
