Mission: Get Ron Paul on a ‘Google Hangout On Air‘ for the May 17th Moneybomb for 15-20 minutes speech to supporters to maximize donations.
Update 5/10/12: The campaign is aware of the Moneybomb and this event, keeping sending emails to show your support!
What is “Google Hangout On Air”?
By checking “Enable Hangouts On Air,” you can broadcast your live hangout – from the Google+ stream, your YouTube channel or your website – to the entire world. You can also see how many viewers you’ve got; which we don’t place any limit on. Once you’re off the air, Google will upload a public recording to your YouTube channel, and to your original Google+ post. This way it’s easy to share and discuss your broadcast after it’s over.
Setup to stream over
We can’t allow the lack of funds to derail the campaign.
Ron put out a video last night asking for $650,000 in two weeks. Lucky for us, the Rise for Liberty Moneybomb is scheduled for May 17th, which places us one week into the two weeks. I have no doubt that we can raise that much and more with just the Moneybomb; that’s good enough.
But, since when do we settle for good enough?
So, I’ve got a plan. The campaign has throughout this election cycle continued the same method of marketing Moneybombs; email marketing, social media and minor web promotion through pledges. We all have come to realize that the audience we are reaching is the same people over and over. We have to expand our base and find something that could appeal to the masses.
That’s why I’m proposing a simple solution; use the appeal of Ron. All we need is Ron, 15 minutes and a webcam.
Why would this be so successful? Because, people like to feel involved, they like to get excited and if you attended Doug Wead’s webcam show last night, you witnessed the power of this on a tiny scale. Obama & Romney have hosted similar events, but we all know, that it wouldn’t come close to the amount of attendance and reach that could be had with a Ron Paul hangout.
So, wanna hangout with Ron?
