We need your help!
« on: June 05, 2007, 09:13:37 AM »
In the next few months I plan on increasing the SGU's marketing efforts.  Do any listeners have traditional marketing skills, web marketing skills or the like that are willing to help the SGU with the next push?  any help will be appreciated and heavily rewarded with certain immortality.

I need your help guys   :mrgreen:

I was going to help, but then I realized the reward was "immortality" and not "immorality".  Not interested. :P

I'm willing to help, though I suspect my skill set isn't one you need. Marketeering ain't my thang.

Let's design a downloadable flyer advertising the URL with little tabs at the bottom for people to pull off. We could have two or three different ones, each with a different skeptical celebrity endorsement (P&T, Randi, Shermer, etc.) The celebrity factor isn't that important, though it may not be much trouble to obtain. Each one of us can post the flyers at our respective Universities.

It's not brilliant or anything but pretty simple to do. IRON MAN could design the artwork in less than five minutes.

I can get real drunk and stand out on the Pearl Street Mall and yell at people about SGU. In fact, that's all I'll say "SGU"... make them figure it out.

I get the impression that he's thinking of a more directed approach, but this is not a bad idea.

I'd be willing to help; just let me know what's needed.

Chain letter!

Jay it’s real easy.  If you want to get the message out to a lot of people, ya just need to brush it up a little.  You need to tell the story about how you had terminal brain cancer.  Then one day while passing by a church you were drawn in by the sound of angels.  The next week when you went to see Dr. Novella and the cancer was gone!  Then you found the Skeptics Guide to the Universe and were cured of religion and all your guilt was gone too!  And if you pass this email on to 5 friends you will be guilt free for one week.

You might have to change your name to Perry because someone might catch on.  This is just a rough draft but you get the jist.  You could also go to snopes and grab a letter off of there and just swap out the names for yours and throw that Skeptics cure at the end.  The more I type this the more sense it makes.  This could be the first chain letter that has a positive end result!
