VERY IMPORTANT legal instructions

The flyer designs are not quite print-ready.

All of the flyer design PDFs on this website are provided with three lines of placeholder small print on one side:

  • “Printed by… at …”
  • “Promoted by… at …”
  • “DO NOT PRINT UNTIL THIS LINE REMOVED AND ABOVE LINES CORRECTLY FILLED IN with a person’s name and a postal address”

That means they’re NOT ready to print just as they are. Your flyers may not legally be printed until the correct “election imprint” for your print order is in place. [An explanation of election law for DIY campaigners…]

New crowdfunder: Anti #SimonKirby meme goes viral to 267,000 people with only £100 spent!

So this is interesting. Twitter user @Rachael_Swindon has been producing handy, and very popular, little memes like this:

Now, Facebook has not traditionally allowed “paid boosting” of images which are covered in text. However, they’ve recently loosened their rules, which are no longer very clear; they do tell you that texty images “may not run”, and a couple of paid boosts I’ve attempted have been unsuccessful. But, but, I’ve been allowed to paid boost this meme to Brighton and Peacehaven residents unhindered, and it’s gone super viral! Here are the stats for direct reach of the £100 I’ve been able to spend:

Create a Facebook project group

Know your Facebook: What’s the difference between a Facebook ‘page’ and a Facebook ‘group’?

A Facebook page is automatically public. Anyone can ‘like’ and read all the posts on your public page.

Your project group however can (and should) be closed, so that only group members will be able to read group posts. Group members are added by you or by another group member. Group members can be removed if necessary by an admin.

Create your project group page

Your main focus will be your public Facebook page. However, if you don’t already have another safe digital space available for keeping in touch digitally with your own project team – a space that other people who are interested in helping you out can find and join – then it might well be worth starting a ‘group’ too on Facebook.

Creating a group really couldn’t be much easier.
