Soak in the media exposure that comes with celebrity-driven branded web series such as 'Easy To Assemble' (which I like by the way). But the key is to position yourselves to be just as attractive to advertisers as Illeanna Douglas. You must find creative ways to make yourself marketable.
The industry is shifting and there will come a point when brands and influential people will only want to do business with you, not based on your talent, but based solely on your following and fan base. (Ford Motors is already doing this with Youtubers).
The Internet is a playground with limitless reach. Don't look at your web series as simply a web series, look at it as a brand. Put your brand first and find creative ways to build a following and the trust of the web series community.
