BLOG POSTS THAT GET SPONSORED
If you are an activist and would like to be sponsored because you have to pay bills, here are some ways. I would like to start by discussing a cause that most of my Twitter pals like: Saving animals. The second portion has some examples of sponsored actions for activists.
Every year 2.3+ million animals are euthanized in the United States, in shelters. Very few are no-kill shelters with grants and donations.
There are millions of Americans who would love to hang out with a pet but cannot because of apartment rules, lack of housing, budget constraints.
The quickest way to end the cruel deaths is by crowd-funding petting areas and cat cafes populated by animals from shelters.
An animal activist on Twitter suggested I move the London Cat cafe news to this portion, so here goes:
A cat cafe initiative in London raised an overwhelming amount of money from crowd funding. http://bit.ly/1gNZafA
Thank you so much Twitter pal, you have a great reading speed, BTW!
Dog parks, petting dogs in cafes.
Here are the arguments in favor of dog parks in play areas in the United States:
Gentle, docile trained dogs can boost self esteem of bullied kids.
Gentle, docile trained dogs can boost self esteem of traumatized Veterans and victims of violent crimes.
Can reduced incidence of abuse from irresponsible owners .
They can lower the blood pressure of the hypertensive.
They would create jobs for unemployed animal lovers.
Generate more sales for pet food manufacturers.
Create the perfect solution for apartment dwellers where pets are not allowed.
Help de-stress after a hard days work.
Help kids and families bond better.
Help regulate pet populations and diseases.
Help raise money for animal causes sooner, due to the very strong argument made by those lovely loyal brown eyes ( Ignore the chewed up Nikes)
I could go on. I haven't even scratched the surface of the advantages of a cat cafe!
DON'T worry that you cant adopt a pet, just crowd fund your nearest pet cafe!!
Sponsored blog post:Perhaps you are fighting for recycling non biodegradable plastics that seem to hurt sea animals. Or you want t o raise money for a cat cafe and you already blog!
Maybe you decided to create a template for activists to tweet.
Unless you voice your opinion, say, about organic farmers going bankrupt, your ideas cannot be used by the public. Hence the blog post.
To do research on the statistics and frequency of wasteful cruel actions you have to spend a lot of time.
The very pleasant and surprising development is that now these actions can be sponsored. You want to be a not-for profit, but you still have to pay bills, take care of family and justify spending all that time on the 'net!
Social media and crowd funding are related and can revolutionize how we fund saving man's best friend.
On Twitter I met several activists who also blog about saving animals.
Here is away of helping them keeping their blogs sponsored, to add momentum, keep the posts visible and involve a wide cross section of tweeters.
I have several examples but I am mentioning a few that have made the news.
- Australians recently crowd funded the actions against pig farmers
- A cat cafe initiative in London raised an overwhelming amount of money from crowd funding.
I will talk more about getting your post sponsored in my upcoming post.
Till then fight on dear Twitter pals.
Every tweet counts.
So you love dogs, cats, elephants, dolphins and are causing social change on Twitter?
Dear activist, its time we discussed some Twitter features that will help you gain ground in this movement.
If you have auto tweeted, you need to see this, or your tweets may never reach the right audience!
If you have been in a tweetstorm for #socialchange, you need to read this post, that I have posted after data analysis.
