Skip to comments.Conservative Think Tank - Check out the Shop Small(R) Campaign [Vanity]
Posted on 11/20/2012 9:20:18 PM PST by PieterCasparzen
American Express has a Shop Small(R) campaing going on at the moment; you'll see ads all over.
I just wanted to cite that as an example of the kind of advocacy the proposed think tank would do:
a) a for-profit private sector initiative
b) focus on general public awareness, not a particular product or business
c) presents tons of possibilities in partners, goals, tie-ins, venues, media attention, etc.
This is the type of advocacy program that the think tank would undertake.
More than one will be needed to get off the ground, of course, all experience levels.
Either as a principal (buying in), on staff full or part time, paid consultant or volunteer.
Happy Turkey folks !
Ping (we’re up to 50 people)...
See if you can figure out hoe to keep Charlie Brown trying to kick the football.
I’m doing a shop local initiative here as a volunteer consultant. If you have a list please add me, thanks.
These efforts are key to driving job creation in spite of everything being done at the federal level to do the opposite. Small local businesses are the heart of capitalism.
Threads to date...
You’re included, thanks.
All 3 are good idea but I think I like B best.
Perception is a big problem for the GOP and conservatism. We need to break the false perception that conservatives and republicans are rich white guys. Lord knows it isn’t true.
Thanks for your links/efforts/tagline. BTTT!
Add me to the ping list. I dont have any money but I have time and willing to work at anything that will help our country.
Hey that is excellent. I have been looking for places in my community, where I can apply some conservative values. I love that you are doing this- good for you, Pieter! I will follow the updates. :) Praying for much success for this group.
Keep me in the loop.... thanks
Please add me to your list. My business of 18 years went down in flames in 2008. I have dusted myself off and in January 2011 started a new business.
I have social media and website developmental skills to offer.
