The "Thank You" CampaignSubmitted by OctoBox on Fri, 04/08/2011 - 09:05
I posted a topic on DP a few years ago about NOT repeating the same things that did not work last time and innovate a "new" approach to pushing the message.
Now I'm not in favor of "voting" or "lobbying" (at all) fundamentally, but I'm in it to win it with RP.
The "Thank You Campaign"
Every time Ron Paul goes on a show (from this day forward) we flood that show from as many angels as possible with one simple message, "Thank you for having Ron Paul on your show."
I'm open to a better "simple message" -- but let's agree to say the same exact thing.
Here's what we do:
1) We call the station..."Thank you for having...."
2) We flood the shows message board "Thank you for having..."
Now here's where we really "get 'em" this time.
3) We find people who work at the station (as many as possible) by looking them up in LinkedIn and on Facebook and we give them the same message "Thank you for having Ron Paul on your show." Especially executives.
4) In order of the Primaries we call that stations local affiliates, we flood their message boards, and we find their employees -- "Thank you for having Ron Paul on your show."
We can innovate this by coordinating with Meetup Groups (at the local level) and sharing the connections we make on here, in Digg, on Reddit, and on RP-type Videos on Youtube. Employees, Executives of each major network and their affiliates in order of the Primaries.
I have a bunch of other ideas on how to better organize -- more to come.
Please feel free to create an "equal to or better than" version of what I'm trying to do here. Again let's on agree on it and move forward with the same language.
