On My Daily Donation on DKos, cmanaster is making a contribution to a new candidate, announcing it on Daily Kos, and encouraging readers to join. For donors matching the contribution on his ActBlue page, he doubles his contribution; if ten people match it, he triples.
That is a great diary (pitin - 10/25/2006 1:24:27 PM)
and opportunity for Andy, the more that people give, the more that cmanaster will give, your donation will be doubled or tripled, even if you can only give $20, please do so.
Just for some inspiration, here is the Hurst Commercial on YouTube which has been viewed 1,300 times to date.
I matched his $20... (Loudoun County Dem - 10/25/2006 1:50:38 PM)
...every little bit helps...
If we get 10 donors, it triples! (Andrea Chamblee - 10/25/2006 1:53:15 PM)
Thanks. I gotta get my husband's VISA card number to add my donation ...
I was donor #8 (FredFred - 10/25/2006 9:15:16 PM)
But we need to get 2 more.
Thank you SO Much (pitin - 10/25/2006 2:23:55 PM)
Every little bit does in fact help and add up, especially when it's being DOUBLED or even TRIPLED!
u r welcome... (Loudoun County Dem - 10/25/2006 6:51:29 PM)
Andy's campaign has such strong grassroots......... (Ambivalent Mumblings - 10/25/2006 3:30:22 PM)
......that the more opportunities like this that pop up, the more the campaign will be provided to spread the message to those voters who don't know much about Andy's platform. I have realized that almost everyone who has heard what Andy's all about strongly believe that he should be the 11th District's next Representative. Since Davis has so many connections with lobbyists though, Andy doesn't have the same amount of funds as he does. Through opportunities such as this, people are able to not only learn about Andy's campaign, but help spread the message at the same time.
Puhlease, Move down one of the two Webb blogging diaries, or one of the four Webb ad/endorsement diaries, or one of the two Stay the Course diaries, just for a few hours so people see the Match the Donation diary.
How much does a spot run (FredFred - 10/25/2006 9:21:17 PM)
I happen to know a guy in ad sales at a tv station smallish city (25,000 people) that happens to be about 90 miles away from a major multi-million person population center. Buying an ad there on the 6pm news which is highest priced local broadcast of the day is $300 per 30-second spot, give or take. Now I have no idea what their ratings are like. But an ad here in NoVa has to be gobs more than that if you buy the Channel 9 news or whatever. I think that Andy is wise to stick to cable because you can target really well. That said - what does a single spot run? How many people are we going to reach with $50k? (I kicked in $ yesterday as soon as I saw he had an ad up and today in response to the DailyKos diary).
Random side note - driving into work this morning there was a median strip with a ton of Tom Davis signs on it. Next to each one was a much smaller little sign that said "votes 90% with Bush." Not going to be read at high speed. But when stuck in traffic and crawling (like I was) - it was very legible - and a hoot! Thanks to whomever put those out there.
Thank the Great Folks (pitin - 10/26/2006 12:16:01 AM)
From the Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) for those "90% signs", they seem to disapear alot faster then other median signs, must be hitting a nerve.
Regarding the Ad Buys, I'm sorry, I don't really know how much a single spot runs, but your right in terms of cable being much better then broadcast, it's more targetable and cheaper, takes a little more work then just throwing money at broadcast (i.e. Tom Davis), but is more effective.
