April 15th Money-bomb! - Link inside for Poll

Give Me Liberty was a harsh reminder of the need to actively MARKET the money-bombs for the Campaign. This was hastily brought forward and not much exposure for its existence; little more the sheer importance of needing funds at this point of the Republican Race.

It is getting close to the April Gauntlet of Primaries and Texas/California. With amazing results coming in from our caucus victories NOW is the time to get people FIRED UP ABOUT WINNING!

We have a web programmer, graphic designer, marketing volunteers but we still need HELP and ACTIVISM for this next Money-bomb. But first, we need a name:

Links to a poll that closes Wednesday for the next Money-bomb which, unlike Give Me Liberty, needs to be well seeded before the target day.

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO VOTE!

Chipin to Help Programmer/Designer create Assets for April MB

http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?369185-April-Mon...

Ron Paul Supporters,

I noticed the last money bomb didn't really have a website, the creative drive, focused development, promotion and marketing support that it should have had. With regard to the creation of the April money bomb site, graphics, promotion, etc., the project should be elevated above a simple “volunteer assignment” in order to be truly effective. I know normally we would want people to volunteer for web development duty, but this might not be the best way to get the the results we need in terms of fund raising during the next money bomb date. Perhaps a new approach is necessary, and this project should be conceived in the same light as a professionally made promotional event as we've done in the past with our more efficient money bombs, and can grow from lessons learned to make the next one as successful as it can be. To that end, I thought would run this by you guys so that at least the idea would be on the table.

Both my friend Dave (graphic designer) and I (programmer) would like to work on the next money bomb as we did building out the site and marketing/advertising graphics as well as doing promotion and communications for www.NoOneButPaul.com back in February. In order to do this right we would need to be able to focus on the new site for April for the next few weeks working on it full-time. Below is a quick description for the project and a link to the associated chipin. Indeed, a chipin or other similar fundraising initiative must happen in order to cover of all the costs involved such as paying for email distribution to 10k+ subscribers from all the previous money bombs, advertising and promotion fees, hosting as well as misc expenses and be able to cover us for the next few weeks while we work on the site.
http://orenbus.chipin.com/moneybomb-web-dev

(chipin summary)
Hello Ron Paul Revolutionaries, I'm a programmer by trade and work with a great designer and we both have experience in the web development industry. We are both eager to work on the next money bomb website, graphics and applications come April, however in order to do this we would need to clear our schedules and be able to work on the site full-time for the next couple of week. In order to be done correctly we would have to invest quite a lot of time and resources, including what could amount to 100+ hours of work by each of us. Our intention is to create a polished, professional site, graphics and applications from the ground up. Although personal funds were expended for the NOBP Money Bomb that reached over $2 Million in Feb. a more concerted and professional approach with regard to funding is necessary. A realistic budget must be created that would cover the various costs. Some of the things that must be incorporated into this budget include mailing list distribution costs for 10K+ email addresses of Ron Paul supporters, as well as web hosting, and promotion of the MB. Manpower expenditures must be considered as well, because our own bills must be tended to during the few weeks of the site’s development even as we put our concerted, full-time effort to creating site that’s professional and effective. We believe that anything less than a full-time concerted effort would result in a marketing work, graphics, applications and a site that is haphazard, difficult to navigate, and – functionally speaking – unable to meet the demands of a site in which moneys are totaled, traffic is tallied, and buzz is generated to direct to the official site during the money bomb date.

We need your help in order to allow us to do this critical work by contributing what you can. We are ready to move on the money bomb promotion work, graphics, site, marketing, etc. and to do all the promotion work that would go with it to make sure that supporters across the country know where to go when the time comes. To that end, we plan to build viral applications that would draw supporters to a the site that will be easy to remember, just as we had done with No One But Paul, but this time, we will bring all the tools we can to the table to make sure that the new money bomb will generate more traffic and therefore more fund raising for the official campaign when the time comes. If this start up money can be raised in the next few days we can get started right away. Keep in mind that we are also open to suggestions for effective applications that would augment standard money bomb sites, even those that were used on Black This Out, Tea Party 11, No One But Paul, etc. Money Bombs.

Here is a link to NoOneButPaul.com as sample of the kind of site we can put together for the next money bomb.

Hi all, I recently got an

Hi all, I recently got an email from someone living in Australia in response to the chipin and he was unaware that he can contribute to the chipin as it is not a direct donation to the campaign, just wanted to let anyone that is living outside the United States that are Ron Paul supporters you can help out with this chipin as it has no direct connection to the official campaign and is being run by grassroots supporters. Anyone who chips in that is not a United States citizen their money will go to hosting and online fees to provide the internet related services which is considered exempt by the FEC. Thanks.


Internet hosting and related costs donations by foreign nationals considered volunteer exemption 11 CFR 100.74.

[url]http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/cfr_2011/janqtr/11cfr100.74.htm[/url]

Although a "foreign national cannot make a campaign contribution they are allowed to serve as an uncompensated volunteer for a campaign or political party"

[url]http://www.fec.gov/pages/brochures/volunteer_activity_brochure.pdf[/url]

So in essence they are paying for internet hosting support that is covered under volunteer activity which they are allowed to participate in and which costs are exempt from being considered part of either influencing an election through a donation aka. direct donation to the campaign.

Just A Question

..you signed in for the first time three hours ago and yet you are putting together the next money bomb? I am a little confused. Did you introduce yourself earlier or something. No offense, but where did you come from?

I just track posts to see where people are coming from. You have never posted before so I couldn't track you.

This is an edit: Are you Donovan James Ault from Missouri??
Googled you. If so, you b okay :)

fonta

Yes that is me.. Donovan

Yes that is me.. Donovan Liberty James on Facebook if you would like to fully vet. The abilities of Google is discomforting.

I normally frequent RPF since it is the forum layout that I am most accustomed to.

As far as orchestrating the Money-bomb I am just doing my part to spread the idea and get more involvement from the Ron Paul activist community.

It is also out of self preserving interests that I would be involved in helping this be as successful as possible. This last money-bomb has left me over stretched financially and carrying the burden again of massive credit card debt. If we don't have lots of people excited and aware of this next one, I fear it will be unsuccessful or I will be in fiscal ruin whichever comes first.

End Tyranny or End Slavery?

If someone has a higher claim on the fruit of your labor than you do, you are a slave lorded over by tyrants.

We have the lead time, it would be very cool to out perform our best effort so far. Brainstorming for ideas to get the word out to all RP supporters and raise multiple millions on this most appropriate date.

At work.. But here is my vote..

Since it is on "tax day" weekend. Let's have an "audit the federal reserve" moneybomb. I'd say "end the fed" (like my bumper sticker) but not all republicans or 'average' American agrees with that but MOST do want an audit.

Results

Just a note: On the 14th, the day before, the results of the Colorado State Convention will be known, following on from their district conventions two days before.

If things go to plan, the MSM is going to be taking candidates away from the other candidates and giving them to Ron. This is a 60 delegate turnaround.

Assuming there is some confidence in that happening, a money bomb titled to promote that turn around might be worthwhile...
