Facebook.com = register as a company/organization. After you get # number of likes, your address will change from a boring number to your actual group name. You should post to the Justice Party main Facebook to announce yourself. Or sometimes comment as well. Resist posting super long entries. No one reads them. Be sure and clever, but not high school level either. Check ALL your facts before posting, 'Dems proclaim world is flat!'
Twitter.com = You will start with no followers. Google or use Twitter to find a few dozen reporters/indie reporters in your state. Start following them. In turn, they are likely to follow you. That just builds on itself. When Tweet, be sure to use hashmarks and Twitter names. For example, "The @GOP is driving us to a #fiscalcliff" You should also follow some blogs and newspaper sites. In your tweets, try to mention the justice party (with the @ symbol). Be sure to write a good profile for yourself. Mention your state in your profile. Don't tweet things about your life. Like, 'Watched TV today.' They need to be JP specific or about politics and issues.
For Facebook and Twitter, ask other JP party people to follow and LIKE you. Remember, although you represent your state, you also represent the name of the party. Follow Rocky's advice on being civil and true to our CORE VALUES.
Meetup.com = Allows your members to meet face to face and RSVP. You’ll also attract new members that are part ofmeetup.com site. Free join but to make a group, you must pay. Not too bad though. Here is my trick. Start the process to make a group. But don't finish it. Within a day or so, the site will realize you started to make a site but stopped. Boo hoo. So they will send you a 50% off promo code. Use that and register your group. Nobody likes to join a 'loser' group. So ask your friends and neighbors to join your group. Once you get enough real members, you can remove them from your group.
Tumblr.com = This is a good and free blogging platform. Very easy to use. I don't think writing 10 page articles or your thesis everyday is the way to go. Save your time. Make it readable. A post can be a few paragraphs to 2 pages. More than that, you are losing your reader. After all, you are not the Wall Street Journal or New York Times. Try to spice up your writing with KEYWORDS. This will make search engines pick up your site, leading more people to your door.
WordPress.com = This is an alternative to Tumblr. Also very easy to use. Advantage is that should your party grow, you should have an easier time switching to Wordpress.org. This is a free CMS (See below) version which you can install on your own system.
YouTube.com = You might not look like a movie star to stand in front of a camera, but there are other means to making a video. Many presentation software allows you to export your presentation in a format that can be added to YouTube. Make some slides introducing your party, values, issues and add a little background music. For inspiration, look at some of the videos that Rocky's video man has created.
Try to select the same user name on all sites. For example, I try to use JusticePartyCT on all the above.
Don’t use your personal accounts to create the JP account.
BTW, I have tried Google's social site, G+ and didn't find enough people on it. You can also set up Flickr site to store your photos as well.
On many of the above social sites, they can ‘talk’ to each other. So when you tweet on Twitter, that tweet will be placed on your Facebook page. For all these sites, make sure you fill out all the URLs of your other social sites. i.e. On Meetup, put your Twitter and Facebook accounts.
