How YOU can increase media exposure before Feb 5thSubmitted by hayek on Thu, 01/31/2008 - 17:59
Local press print local news and are notoriously lazy. Take the campaigns press release tomorrow regarding fund raising and call your local newspaper, radio station or TV station.
Call them, give them your name. Ask them to interview you about the Ron Paul campaign and things you've done, why you support him. Offer a picture of Dr. Paul or of yourself.
Tell them that you are active in the community, and want people to know how hard local people are working for Dr. Paul.
They'll do a story, it's nice, it's local....and national. It will attract readers. Offer a title like; "Understanding the Ron Paul Phenomenon in our home town of ******"
Tell them you are doing a big Fundraiser today, completely grassroots organized...and you would be happy to send them follow up information so they can do follow up articles.
Let the Campaign handle the Main Stream Media, let's win the local media.
Let's maximize our exposure this time. The campaign can't do this, it is too hard for a central campaign to contact all the local reporters, but we can do this. The campaign can give us press releases and if we contact our local media...those releases will get coverage.
