Materials Development

We need new materials which update information on our activities and perspectives.

Prepare the following materials:

  • 1 -- On-line Q&A about MF/PL, updating what we have and combining everything about us into one document.
  • 2 -- PDF Package:

a - About MF/PL b - Resources Available c - Activities (USSF, etc) d - Why Join? (5 or six points)

  • 3 -- On-Line videos:

The Pitch video -- viral distribution

Alfredo On videos (distribute to more places)


The Pitch List

Our regular outreach list which would be replenished as people from it join.

  • 1 - compile a list of 200 website contacts
  • 2 - "informative" email on an issue with link to an online presentation emailed to these people every month.

The Five Campaign

This is a specialized membership drive campaign to get about 100 members. We're gonna ask each LC member to make a list of five people as new potential contacts and then contact them using our materials.

  • 1 - Call all LC members from 5 new potential members to reach out to
  • 2 - Prepare email and a mini-script for an exchange between LC member and the recruit
  • 3 - Send Q&A (above) to LC members as a backgrounder on the organization
  • 4 - Add "referred by" field to our Join form.

The Blog Campaign

An attempt to keep our leaders in the public eye

  • 1 -- Weekly blog -- Jamie and Alfredo contribute blogs weekly on various topics of their choosing. Timing is essential -- weekly.
  • 2 -- General article contributions -- a monthly article or column contribution to Huffington, portside, alternet and/or similar mass distribution outlets.

Monthly Presentations

"May First at the Brecht"

Monthly presentation by our leaders, members and/or techies about major Internet topics of general interest (like FOSS, Social Networking, etc.) and specific topics like court cases or mass arrests or a new software concept.
