    Lightbulb April Moneybomb Web Dev, Designer, Promotion and Application Support - Chipin

    [chipin]a6862411ea0d4df2[/chipin]

    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.

    (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 weeks. 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.

    I chipped in 10 bucks people. It's for a good cause. This money bomb has to work! I see this method that orenbus is suggesting as the only way a truly effective moneybomb can work. It can't be just some casual, unfocused "let's hope this works' shot in the dark approach. Let's make sure we do this RIGHT!

    +Rep -- The small amount that we throw in now is going to save us A LOT of heartbreak on the next Money-bomb.

    I know many of us, myself included, had to donate x2, x3, x4 to Give Me Liberty to reach the 1 Million goal and that has left me with credit card debt and over streached my resources along with it. This CANNOT happen again and SHOULD NOT. We are at a time in this race where the Campaign is going to need funds -- The delegate strategy is unfolding and scores of delegates for Ron Paul are coming out of the hard fought caucus states and we need to capitalize on this excitement.

    The $2,300 we can spend now is going to allow orenbus and his colleagues to actively FULL TIME market, promote, advertise, create graphics, email, and network for the next Money-bomb. This WILL open up NEW sources of revenue to spare all of our bank accounts during the next, probably most crucial, money-bomb. April 24th is a big day of Primaries and district level caucus we also have Texas and California coming up.

    I am a walking example of how effective the promotion of these are! Look at my join date. Had I not clicked on a small little Facebook ad for Black This Out -- I would have NO IDEA who Ron Paul is or what his campaign is all about.

    Also of note, even tho there will be people (if enough is chipped in) doing full time work on this Money-bomb it is imperative that YOU do what you can also:

    Twitter
    Facebook Groups
    Emails
    Reddit
    MySpace (haha thats a joke)
    Meetup Groups
    Friends / Family
    Locally

    -These are all extremely easy and cost effective ways to market this next fund raiser. Ron Paul has over 1 Million people who agree with his message of Peace, Libery, and Sound Money. If each and everyone of those people KNOW that this is coming up and can spare even $5.00 each -- Math looks good to me!

    I can't give because I am unemployed but I do wish you well in this work. I also design, maintain, and do client and server side programming for web sites. I am presently making one for the church I attend free of charge since they can't afford to pay and I hate their current design made with the crappy FrontPage HTML generator.

    Already had a copy/pasta so disregard the formalities:

    Sorry to advertise in comments but it is very important that we start NOW to market, promote and advertise the next money-bomb... GML was a painful reminder of the need to pre plan these and get as much involvement as possible. With Texas and California coming up THIS IS CRUCIAL. -- Many of us have been over stretched and taken on debt due to the lack of promotion for the Give Me Liberty bomb -- With the race this far in and delegates coming out in scores for Ron Paul, from the hard fought caucus states, we cannot relent!

    +rep to orenbus.

    Once the site is all up and running, we need to create a chip-in to buy Google Adwords, Facebook ads and advertising on LewRockwell.com, Free Talk Live and perhaps infowars.

    Yes! -- The small small small amounts that we could pool together for an EFFECTIVE and NATIONAL marketing campaign for this moneybomb could definantly yield much higher returns during the actually donation. If 1 million people just "know" about its existance would help tremendously -- hell if those 1 million people just donated a dollar each it would be one of the more successful ones.

    With that being said, does anyone have the capabilities of a server/database that can handle 1 million emails?

    Indeed, just having banner up at LewRockwell.com, FreeTalkLive (and radio ads as well) and Infowars (bit touch and go that - very expensive and not many like to link Ron Paul with Alex Jones).

    We also need to get all the liberty media behind it: Thomas Wood; Adam Kokesh; RevPac; RonPaulRadio; Lew Rockwell.......the list goes on.

    We need to get the 'big names' on board for this to be a success.
