The Advocate and Social Media

I’m not an advocate to say the least but we all have opinions and at some point we are all eager to join a cause that will make a difference in our lives.

Voting is the very first place to raise our voices. Voting is the medium to the building blocks of our future as a whole. Today we have ‘social media’. Social media has become that avenue where we can ALL make a difference. We can stand out from the crowd and raise our voices on the issues that touch our lives in more ways than one.

Utilizing social media to start a revolution as the advocate that has a cause. Make sure that your cause is worthy enough to gain the attention it needs to make a rumble within the social networking walls of our society.

Fight the power! What is your story? What are you trying to convey to those you want to reach out to? If you can articulate what you want to say, you can convince people to join your cause. Think of a strong and empowering name for your cause. The name should represent who you are, and what your cause is all about. Social networking sites are plentiful. Choose the one that best fits your needs, this should be the one that you have the most connections.

Create a page and or a group. People are visual creatures. Provide photos and videos so that your group can gain the right kind of people to help your cause grow. Allowing a place where people can connect and conversate is a great way to get people involved. As the administrator of your group and or page make sure you can delegate who can connect with your group and what kind of comments they can share. Be careful and mindful of opening your group up to hackers that may be against your cause.

As the numbers begin to grow think about creating a personalized website away from the social networking site. This will give your cause a home of its own. More information can be offered and you can begin connecting with those that are not a part of the social networking site.

Now you can research and gain the support you need for your cause. Reach out to political parties of your interest. Your local and state congressman, senates, city officials and church home. Hold events, charitable functions to create more exposure, inviting the local media down and or video taping the event and hosting those videos on your site. It is also necessary to get instagram followers fast free. This will allow you to establish a wide variety of audiences for your cause. 

Exposure is the key. Becoming an advocate and fighting for a cause you strongly believe in takes hard work and dedication. If more of us stepped out of our comfort zones to fight for something we believe in, the world could begin to be a better place.
