According to a reliable independent pollster, Elizabeth Warren has gone from 38% name recognition across Massachusetts to 62% name recognition in just the last three months. But there are still a lot of people who need to learn who she is and why she is running to be our next U.S. Senator.
That’s where this “event” comes in. (RSVP if you can!) We’ve all heard of “money-bombs” on political campaigns – online contributions are coordinated for a single day to make a big impact. Well, on a political campaign on which I worked last year, I coined the term and idea “Facebook status-bomb.” It’s easy, quick, and FREE! Basically, a whole lot of people agree to post a specific Facebook status update around the same time on the same day to have a larger aggregate impact and raise visibility and awareness.
So, I’m encouraging everybody to do the following:
1) This coming Wednesday, September 28 (just two days from today), at some point in the day between 2pm and 7pm, post the following Facebook status update:
Want a real fighter for the middle class as Massachusetts’ next U.S. Senator? Visit Elizabeth Warren’s website at http://www.elizabethwarren.com/ and Like her campaign Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/ElizabethWarren and follow her Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/#!/elizabethforma — and copy & paste this message as YOUR Facebook status!
2) Invite all your Facebook friends to this event and encourage them to join the Status-Bomb – just go to the event page and click on the “Select Guests to Invite” button in the upper-left-hand corner of the page after you RSVP – and also encourage your friends to invite all of THEIR Facebook friends, too. The more people participating, the bigger the impact! So start inviting!
Thanks for helping to make this grassroots effort a success! Again, it’s easy, quick, and free – and if it helps introduce more Massachusetts residents to Elizabeth Warren, then it’s worth the 30 seconds of time invested! 🙂
(Note: I’m not associated with the Elizabeth Warren campaign in any way. I am just a grassroots supporter – and contributor of $30 so far – excited that she is running and am thinking of unique ways to help out.)
