One of the speakers made an excellent point about a visual reference that should be turned into a poster for all gun ranges and stores

Nicki made some points about things that made me search for more info and found this stuff


1. LGBT activists in the United States have also used Twitter to gain supporters. Activists’ remarkable success at reaching out to a broad community via Twitter has suggested that social media may be more effective in raising awareness, especially among youth, than traditional media.

2. Other social media campaigns by US-based LGBT activists to raise awareness for the cause, include an initiative started by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) which encouraged marriage equality supporters to change their Facebook profile picture to the HRC “equality” logo.

3. Youths and political activists around the world have been early adopters of social media, recognizing the personal and professional opportunities that platforms such as Twitter and Facebook have offered. Civil rights movements have followed in their wake, noting that social media excels at exactly what they need to do: identify, educate and mobilize diverse groups. The global LGBT community has used Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and other platforms to shape people’s attitudes towards LGBT issues. Via social media, LGBT groups have offered support to members of the community, and have gathered together the critical mass of voices that is needed to effect change, such as the legalization of gay marriage in the United States.

Exclamation 9 Ways to Use Social media

Plagiarized from a group who is anti-gun

The Nine
  1. Make a specific ask that is doable, effective and measurable
  2. Share your story
  3. Invite your friends and give them a role
  4. Choose the social media platform that’s right for your project
  5. Use the web for what it does well – crowd-source information that’s useful for everyone
  6. Go for media coverage
  7. Celebrate the win and say thank you
  8. Plan for Giving Tuesday
  9. Follow the people doing great things




1. Make a Specific Ask That Is Doable, Effective and Measurable
. Too often, we get appeals from friends asking us to support their causes, but we’re not quite sure how we can help or if our involvement or contribution will make any difference.

So, first off, when you invite people to get involved in your cause or charity, be sure you can answer the question, “What can I do to help?” One idea is to create a milestone for your campaign (e.g., “if 100 people agree to do X, some great good will happen as a result”). Make sure your request is easily doable and that it will result in measurable impact.

2. Share Your Story. Women know instinctually that we connect with each other around our shared stories. When we hear or read about a friend going through a hard time, our heart goes out to them and we want to help – much more so than if we read the statistics on how many people suffer from that particular problem.

We’ve seen this time and again – storytelling is the best way to get people involved in the charities and causes you believe in. Share why it matters to you. Share individual stories of impact. Share stories to demonstrate why the need is so great.

3. Invite your friends and give them a role.
Create a project to spread the word and engage your friends. Give your group a name and invite other firearms online communities to get involved as partners. Provide a menu of ways they could choose to join in – from cross-posting blog posts, to interviewing a expert or joining a conference call to discuss strategies.

4. Choose the social media platform that’s right for the project. Facebook is the most active and successful social media platform for charities and causes, but it’s not right for everything. Traditional pro-gun orgs ask gun owners to contact their Congressmen and Senators and thank them for their support. However, it is notoriously, hard to get people to pick up the phone and call their mayors, governors or representatives

Try to create a Twitter chat and ask gun owners to send a message to their representatives via Twitter – a much easier ask than picking up the phone. Twitter chat can generate many millions of impressions and be the right venue for the conversation.

5. Use the web for what it does well – crowd-source information that’s useful for everyone

Encourage non-gun owner parents to talk to their kids about gun safety. Host an hour-long Twitter party, with recognized bloggers as co-hosts, for moms and dads to share how they approach the topic of gun safety with their kids. Through the collective wisdom of the group, we will all come away with insights and new approaches – and will support a very important cause for parents of teens and tweens.

6. Go for media coverage. However big or small your campaign, be sure to let your local papers, radio outlets and TV stations know about it. You really never know when your project might be exactly what a reporter is looking for. We’re living in a transmedia world – online and mainstream media working together create the greatest impact.

7. Celebrate the Win and Say Thank You. There is nothing more powerful than saying ‘thank you’ and then giving everyone a huge collective hug for their hard work and accomplishments on your project. This sounds so very obvious, but it is amazing how often this step is left off. Give your family, friends, neighbors and online community a reason to be proud of their contribution – and something positive to share with their family around the dinner table that night.

8. Plan for a "Giving Tuesday" . Example: The UN Foundation, Mashable and 92nd Street Y launched the first Giving Tuesday and it was a raging success. More than 2,500 charities participated in the first Giving Tuesday and $10 million was donated online that day, a 113% increase compared to the same date the year before.

9. Follow the People Doing Great Things. We’re all creating history here – social media for social good is still very, very new, and every day new ways to use online platforms are being created and discovered. Our advice – tap the insights and expertise of the people doing fabulous things in the space.

more tips


1. Create a Strong Theme with Clear Goals


Themes should not be complex. A simple mission with a powerful message can take a campaign far. People will not get involved if they don’t understand how or why they should. Without a clear vision, it is difficult to encourage an audience to participate.

Recently the grassroots charity Spirit Jump sponsored a cause campaign, Cards 4 Cancer Day. The campaign name itself stated the theme: Make cards for people battling cancer. Our clear goal of delivering 100,000 cards to cancer centers around the world was set out from the start. Because the campaign theme was strong, it targeted specific advocates, and supporters understood how to participate and what the overall goal was. Even without large financial backing, our campaign was successful because its theme was uncomplicated and inspired people to act.

“You want to make it as easy for people to participate as possible; in social media, distractions fly a mile a minute,” said Melissa Jones, Social Media Specialist for the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. When there isn’t a strong campaign theme, it’s difficult to grab people's attention.

Kiva’s #FollowFriday campaign is an example of one that lacked a strong theme. Kiva.org wanted to increase their presence on Twitter and called out to supporters to recommend them using #FollowFriday. Unfortunately, Kiva's message was lost in the large amount of Twitter chatter surrounding this hashtag, and they received only a small number of new followers.

2. Seek a Non-Profit Partner That's Active in Social Media

Campaigns partnered with causes that have a dedicated social media presence are more successful. It’s not the size of the non-profit that’s important, but rather their level of participation in social media and the campaign.

“We run more than 100 cause-driven campaigns a year, and the difference between modest success and massive success is often determined by the non-profit partner,” says Chris Noble of StudioGood. “Working with a non-profit that has a strong base of support, and knows how to mobilize that base, pays off for the sponsor every time.”

Many people support cause campaigns because they support the non-profit. If the non-profit isn’t active, or fails to engage their supporters, the campaign will have an uphill battle. Rather than just being a recipient of donations, the non-profit should play an active role in the campaign by rallying its supporters.

3. Connect the Theme, Sponsor, and Non-Profit

Unity of purpose helps streamline the coordination of the campaign. Those with a strong connection between the theme, sponsor, and non-profit organization will better resonate with the public.

The Pepsi Refresh Project is giving away millions of dollars in grants to individuals who come up with "refreshing" ideas that can change the world. Pepsi’s cause campaign is focused on improving communities around the world and rewarding individuals and non-profits alike for the creative ideas that receive the most votes.

Pepsi successfully connects their brand personality with social causes, and is attracting millions of people to their brand without asking them to purchase a single product.

4. Identify and Utilize Your Best Social Assets

Social media cause campaigns are challenging, and organizers should use the tools and people at their disposal effectively. Campaigns with funding must put their money where it will yield the best results. Facebook advertisements can be extremely helpful, but should only be used to meet specific goals. If a campaign calls for large-scale interaction with supporters, staff must be properly equipped to respond. When campaigns require voting, there must be an ability to rally people.

5. Target a Well-Defined Audience

Campaign organizers who know their audience, who listen to and engage them, will be more successful. Take time to determine who your audience is on each social network. Do not assume all social media platforms have the same participants or will respond in the same way. Facebook, Twitter, and blog networks must be treated as distinct entities. When using multiple platforms, pay attention to how each reacts to your messages and be ready to shift focus to the most responsive.

"Twitter is an excellent tool because it allows for fast and constant updates. Facebook, however, allows for more detailed messaging and is a better forum for dialogue. Oftentimes, our supporters engage in dialogue with each other. This allows us to step back for a moment and evaluate what resonates with them," said Barb Alvarado, Development Director of Architecture for Humanity.

6. Energize and Motivate Your Supporters

The number of followers, subscribers or fans your campaign has does not represent the number of participants. A Facebook Fan Page can have 10,000 fans and be ineffective. A successful campaign motivates participation by asking supporters to vote for a favorite cause, join other platforms, donate money or share content.

Keep people energized throughout the campaign. Create mini-campaigns within the larger one to keep participants active. PayPal did this with their Regift The Fruitcake campaign, and gave away extra cash to charities that raised the most money on "Charity Tuesdays" via Twitter. Because they were able to motivate supporters throughout the life of the campaign, PayPal raised well over $70,000 for charity.

7. Pay Attention to Timing

Social media has its own timetable. Run campaigns for the time needed, and not a day longer. A successful campaign asks its supporters to participate sufficiently to achieve its goals, but not so much as to cause fatigue.

Judy Chang, Senior Manager of Vertical Markets for PayPal spoke directly to this. “Grabbing and keeping the attention of supporters over a multi-week campaign is definitely a challenge. We’ve seen our best results with campaigns that last anywhere from one day to two weeks, such as Check-in for Charity, #beatcancer, and Charity Smackdown.”

When campaigns ask supporters to partake in a cause campaign every day for weeks, even months, their excitement and passion for the cause can deteriorate.

8. Follow Up

When a cause campaign has ended, there is still work to be done. Evaluation of successes and failures is vital. This step allows organizers to prepare for the next cause campaign by enhancing what worked and fixing what didn’t. Requesting feedback from, sharing results with, and thanking supporters is also paramount to ensuring their future participation. One good campaign should lead to another.

Put a message in your CalGuns sig line. I will bet a lot of CalGunners never look at this area of the forum so we need to hook them into this effort.

I signed up for this on July 12th. Haven't heard diddly squat since.

IMHO that was 2+ weeks that we couldn't afford to waste.

WHAT

IS

THE

PROGRAM?!

Because sitting here, waiting, isn't getting us ANYTHING.

I will dig a ditch, nail stuff together, pour coffee, make photocopies, hang flyers, collect signatures, etc (i.e. REAL work)

I won't cold call people (on the phone, nor door-to-door). Blah blah blah buncha talk that never goes anywhere nor accomplishes anything. Huge waste of time IMHO.

Whatever it is, let's get going... do you think the anti's stood around like this with their thumb up their butt? No, they got legislation drafted, submitted, passed and signed. While we sit here doing nothing.

LETS GO ALREADY!

If we wait too long the chores are going to be filling sand bags and loading magazines... let's not let it get to that point.

Agreed. It's pretty sad to see that 6,000+ people have read this thread and only 130ish have signed up (or atleast said they did). That just goes to show us why it's gotten as bad as it has.

I stated (weeks ago) stating that I had trouble getting confirmation email. Never got a reply.

Sad indeed.

Received an email this morning from vetogunmageddon. What about you guys?

Hello,

Thank you for volunteering to help us exercise the people’s veto to overturn the recent draconian gunmageddon laws before they can take effect. We have been working hard to organize this massive effort. We have more than 300 locations around the state registered to provide petition signing locations. Many volunteers such as yourself have also stepped up to restore our 2A rights by either staffing these locations or collect signatures on their own.

We have partnered with the “Voters Organized to Engage” (V.O.T.E.) group for this step of our mission. They bring experience that we just don’t have. They are also a grass roots movement and were already promoting two initiatives when we joined them. The first is to require acceptance of digital signatures on petitions going forward and the second is to allow jury trial rights for child custody cases. More information on these initiatives will follow.

We are currently working to get county hubs operational. We need to establish a hub for every county to be responsible for distributing, receiving, counting petitions and overall support of locations and volunteers in the area. The locations must have enough space to handle petitions and volunteers working it. If you would like to recommend a location to be a county hub – and a person to lead it – please reach out to us.

We will be reaching back out to you as soon as the hubs are operational. In the meantime, please register a facebook account if you do not already have one. It can even be a temporary account for purposes of this effort. The FB account is needed to access the county V.O.T.E. group where volunteers will be collaborating.

The start of the petition drive has been scheduled for August 12! Please take this time now to review training material: http://www.cirrraof2016.com/voluntee...ning-info.html

Thank you again for stepping up. We will be in touch!

Weird thing though, is I suddenly received THIS IMMEDIATELY AFTERWARDS:

Safety for All
Here’s what we’re looking at, friends: We only have about three months left to win this campaign and pass lifesaving gun reforms in California with Safety for All (appearing as Prop. 63 on the ballot). That means every minute matters, and we can’t fall behind even once.

Look, the NRA can’t believe somebody is actually standing up to them, and they’re doing everything they can to stop us from taking away their power. They won’t let up any time soon – so we can’t either. We need to have the resources to fight back against their ruthless attacks.

But right now, we’re 431 Founding Members short of where we need to be by Sunday.

I’m not willing to lose this, friends, not with lives literally at stake. So I’m asking personally: Donate today to become a Founding Member and make sure we hit every single benchmark between now and Election Day.

Thanks for being part of this. You’re going to be the difference in this fight, I mean it.

Gavin

Do we have a booth at the Crossroads gun show in Ventura today or tomorrow?

I'm already active in LA, OC, and San Bernardino counties but if I can help register one voter for the gun vote I'll take a vacation day tomorrow and volunteer if possible.
