Do you have a charity dare that you started that deserves attention and financial support? Of course, it deserves support, YOU started it. We all work for a living, and it can be difficult to find the time and energy to promote even the most worthwhile projects—so let the internet do it for you. There are wonderful tools that do a large part of the heavy lifting and can be an invaluable asset to your promotional assets – including the website called Paper.Li.
To start; if you’re not on Twitter by now, you should be. It takes a little bit of work to create great content or a product and become relevant, but Twitter is a tremendous way to find people with similar interests and passions. When you “tweet” what you have to say reaches all of your followers, and your words of wisdom may sometimes be “retweeted” by your followers to others—a domino effect that can be a powerful tool for charities.
Create your own publication
One phenomenal way to harness the power of Twitter is to create a publication that people can be involved in—without any extra effort on their part or yours. Paper.Li allows you to do just that.
Use Paper.Li’s tools to select sources from Facebook, Twitter, and all over the web. Decide which sites and contributor articles speak about what is important for your charity and include only those that are the best fit to get your message across. Customize your Paper.Li newspaper with whatever colors and fonts you choose. Once you are done, this service allows you to sign-up subscribers and automatically sends Tweets to get people interested.
Voila! After 20 minutes of setup you have an independently functioning digital newspaper that sends information about your charity and its central issues to a broader audience then you could reach on your own.
Add your own work
Want to see your own articles or opinions featured in your Paper.Li distributions? Start a blog, or offer guest posting services to other websites! Websites like WordPress and Blogger offer free and easy ways to start publishing your own thoughts to the web. Add your RSS feed or site to the Paper.Li lineup and inform readers in your own words about upcoming charity events and the importance of charitable giving.
