Ideas for marketing LSP, now and into September.

* Give 'gift' tickets to celebrities to participate to increase name recognition

* Call for help (immediately!) - daily paul, ronpaulforpresident2008.com, RPRadio -- everyone should know LSP needs talent now

* Web graphics available for websites

* Free 'Manifesto' with bulk ticket purchase

* Facebook? Myspace?

* Reach out to potential media partners now?

* Use 'Text for LSP website' in email, blog call for support/talent/help getting the word out

* Presence at CFL rally, presence at Republican Liberty Caucus 2008 National Convention. LSP needs ticket salesmen at these events -- the tickets should provide all instruction one would neet to vote.

Great post! I'm thinking of waiting on the public media assault once we get the web site up- until then I've been doing thing via e-mail / PM.

I did get the MySpace page- so we could use someone to do something with that. :)


Who are some good media partners to reach out to at this time? Here's my list:

those are good ones -- i don't know when is the right time to contact these, but here's some more:

WHO Newsradio 1040, in Des Moines, Iowa
Public television stations
Adam Curry's podcast
Jack Cafferty
John Stossel
Bill Moyers

If not to rebroadcast the straw poll, perhaps to interview someone or do a piece on it.

Oh yeah, and the Campaign for Liberty would be a heck of a media partner. Jeff Frazee's on Facebook.


* acquire YouTube channel, gmail accounts, web domain misspellings
* scout out websites, blogs about liberty, liberty candidates, congress, etc to pitch affiliation with

* create press release style wording for different phases of project -- call for talent, vetting begun, vetting results, broadcast walkthrough complete, night of the event. release via several avenues, including blog, daily paul, mass email, forum post, traditional AP release, youtube video, facebook note, myspace blog, etc etc.

i had already told both of you but im adding dave weigel from reason mag. to the list for everyone elses benefit. and what about justin.tv? is he still going at that?

i can try to work on the myspace but for some reason my computer hates myspace and it acts completely goofy... but i may be able to do it somewhere else... same password i assume?

also im setting up a facebook page right now as well
