The county Ron Paul won in Iowa was the only county where they took out newspaper adds in the local paper.

Check out the following site:

KnowBeforeYouVote.com (http://knowbeforeyouvote.com/)

Use this is a template to create a newspaper insert for your local paper. Try to coordinate with all the meet up groups in your state to raise money to get this in all the newspapers in your state!!

Make sure the insert makes multiple references to this website (so people can "fact check"). You might want to think about titling it "Know Before You Vote" or "Voter's Guide"

You also will want to put a disclaimer in there that this is not official campaign material and is not endorsed by the campaign.

I recommend including simple and clear information about how to vote in your state's primary or caucus. Also, try to make the insert look as professional as possible, and even though it obviously leans towards Ron Paul - try to make it look pretty neutral.

Finally, if you want to redesign the site I put up, just send recode it and send me the new code. I want to keep the images publicly hosted, so make sure you maintain link integrity.

Okay guys, lets go get 'em!!!

Here is where you can grab some of the head shots for developing your insert:

That sounds like a very good idea!

I'm rather curious about how you're getting so much traffic to the site. (3899 views as of now!) Is it entirely through newspaper ads like you mention above?

Up until today, it was all viral marketing - people emailing the site to people, posting it on forums, message boards, blogs here and there - actually I could have probably pushed it harder, but...

Anyway - today, an add dropped in a Charleston, SC newspaper, and I jumped to 800 hits today already just today. Tomorrow, its going to be in SC and Nevada papers, so we'll see... If this goes well, we'll take it national.
