The blimp is one of the most effective tools the grassroots has in getting Ron Paul's NAME out in front of the public. Bar none. Money bombs, operation this and that...whatever. The media can't hide the blimp, but lack of financial support CAN.

Thanks everybody! And boooo to whoever down-rated this thread. Unless you read through all of the hundreds of articles and TV clips in those links, and still feel like the blimp isn't worth the investment, you have no business down-rating this thread. You did that less than 5 minutes after this thread was posted. You didn't have time to go through 1% of the media coverage posted in those links.

The blimp more than paid for itself. It needs to fly all the way thru super tuesday. Best investment so far.

the blimp may be the best strategy for name recognition in history... no joke. It has ALREADY paid for it's self. To let it die now would not be a shame, but it would be a major blunder of a GREAT opportunity.

Well said. As you will see that there are those that will pretend to be for Ron but will go after the blimp project or others that are potentially bad for the opposition and try to derail them, you will know them by the fruits of their labors. And will see the same names and thy name will be troll.:)

instead of calling it donating, we should really call it purchasing.

Although the blimp creates lots of publicity for Dr. Paul, it doesn't do much to generate revenue for itself.

People who don't hang out on RPF, although they may be big supporters of the blimp, may not know that the blimp is hurting for money.

Have you emailed all your friends and family who are supporting Dr. Paul, but aren't as hooked in as you, and let them know the blimp needs money to keep flying?

The Blimp is waaaay ahead on media generated for the comparatively small sum it cost.

Blimp on, to victory!

Again, the problem is that that money would've gotten more votes if spent on traditional media. That is intuitive marketing. I could guarantee a win in TN with the money that was spent on the blimp.

Matt, I think you are seriously underestimating the earned media that the blimp has generated across the USA.

Blimp!

Moving south was a SMART move...it is positioned to raise public awareness of Ron Paul in the sunny south, especially in states like South Carolina and Florida; where primaries are looming...donate today...keep her flying!!!

PERHAPS. But earned media does not = votes whereas paid for media can = votes (if done properly).

I totally disagree. Earned media is more effective because it is the program not the ad spaces in between. People don't tend to fast forward their Tivo through it or go to the bathroom during it like they do with political commercials. Also, it's a blimp, not Huck kissing a baby or something boring like that.

But you can control paid media and it is absolutely effective.

The blimp reaches out to people that don't watch TV, and that's a sh!t load of people.

Why anyone would ever open a piece of political mail is beyond me.

The blimp reaches out to people that don't watch TV, and that's a sh!t load of people.Very true, but you have to realize that less than 15% of REGISTERED voters actually vote in the primaries. Therefore targeting a general audience is not as efficient as targeting voters or supervoters.
