Step Two in Reinventing the Dallas Libertarian Examiner is open for business today.
After the recent announcement of its New Start project, New Start: Reinventing the Dallas Libertarian Examiner, in which this North Texas libertarian feature recommitted itself to promoting libertarian activities throughout the Dallas/Ft. Worth region, freedom advocates now have a related outreach tool in their arsenal.
Now sporting a new profile picture and cover photo the "Libertarian Opinionzer," originally created as a Facebook Journalist page, has been rebranded Dallas Libertarian Examiner and rededicated to all things libertarian in the Metroplex.
All activist libertarians in North Texas (and everywhere else in the world for that matter) are encouraged to go there and Like it, Subscribe it, Follow it, Share it, Comment it, Link it, Send it, Feed it, Note it, Message it, Chat it and tell other libertarians in North Texas all about it.
But wait, as they say in the infomercials, there's more!
While the New Start article told area libertarians how they can promote their public activities via the Dallas Libertarian Examiner New Start II offers a Two-for-the-Price-of One outreach offer!
Those who act quickly (operators are standing by!) can unleash a second dose of P.R. with a full-fledged sequel article complete with photos, slideshows, video and links.
By sending in a full follow-up report on your event immediately afterwards (no waiting!) consisting of a detailed report, photos plus the link to a 5 to 6 minute YouTube-posted video with available embed code you just might be rewarded with a follow-on article.
To take full advantage of the opportunity your submission should identify people in the photos and video, credit for who took them, and get it all into the Specified Email Inbox (see below) so it can be written, edited, proofed, laid out and all that technical stuff and still be posted within the 48 hour time frame after the event to qualify it as "newsworthy" by the Google News aggregator, which extends the reach of your coverage considerably.
Example of this kind of sequel story: Tarrant County Libertarian float wins Gay Pride trophy
So there you have it, a two-fer of Dallas Libertarian Examiners – website and Facebook – to publicize your activity coming and going.
Of course these double dip doings will typically apply to big events like conventions, conferences, seminars, parades, appearances at major events and the like. All of this likely won't apply to every beer-and-pizza planning plenum and social sit-down, but try it anyway.
Here's that Specified Email Inbox: email@example.com
