Spreading the word about your creative project is a must. There is no way around it. You must share it to receive it. Not a cliche. Just a simple truth.
Social media has empowered individuals and organizations to spread their stories like never before.
hwat am I using. For now Twitter you can follow us @nowjax. And there is Facebook. Yes, we have a facebook page.
Because time is of the essence. It’s important to use tools that can help you share content when you are not able to access these social media sites.
Consider Tweetdeck to schedule tweets. Also, consider using Crowdbooster. Crowdbooster is similar to Tweetdeck with scheduling updates. However, it has more analytic features.
I use both. I think they are extremely helpful with scheduling updates. Any other recommendations?
Between thiese two I am going hard to get the word out. And of course this blog.
There are other traditional methods to spread your message. TV, Radio, and newspaper. I hope to have a follow up post on my contacts with local media.
I will keep you posted on the outcome. The key is to get the word out early. I hope to make a major impact on our city for good. It’s about helping people to help other people.
Please share what you have learned about going viral. I would like to see what strategies that were effective for you that can work for me.
Some other sources I hope to spread the event are on Startup America Partnership. Black Web 2.O. Elev8, Inc,. Entrepreneur.
