We asked that readers to help me add new readers to NRL News Today, using social media. We offered a few suggestions (see below).
Just wanted you to know that people are already using the easiest and quickest route. I’m posting the stories on our blog. Readers are already re-tweeting them. One friend of mine has a thousand plus followers. Yesterday someone I don’t know personally re-tweeted a half-dozen different stories—and she has more than 2,000 followers.
The objective, of course, is for those followers eventually to follow NRL News Today. And the more our readers alert their friends and contacts, the more pro-lifers will have a chance to read our Monday through Saturday coverage of all things pro-life.
What follows are some of the ideas we included yesterday:
Forward one or more of your favorite stories to all your pro-life friends.
Many of you have social networks that ran from dozens of people to hundreds to even thousands. Post your favorite stories through Facebook along with a personal comment on the story. Share stories you like with you Twitter followers. If you have a Pinterest account, by all means pin the stories that interest you. You might be surprised to see who else feels the same!
Send people a short note that goes along with the forwarded story saying that you enjoy National Right to Life News Today and hope they will sign up. They can do either by clicking on “Receive NRL News Today in Your E-Mail, “ which is found in the upper right hand corner, or by going separately to http://www.nrlc.org/join_our_mailing_list.htm.
Most of you are far more creative than I am. In addition to sharing NRL News Today with your pro-life friends, please pass along additional ideas how to “share the wealth.”
You won’t believe what an impact you could have.
