You could be forgiven for thinking that we’d forgotten all about the VoteTube competition we announced a while ago, amongst all this talk of newspapers. Don’t worry, we’re not quite as inactive as it looks on that front, and there may be a big bang coming on it this week, or next.
In the meantime, I was sent an email which pointed out that a VoteTube video might be the most practical method of reaching your voters if you were hoping to be elected to the Seanad.
Let’s say you’re on one of the University panels. Your voters are all the graduates of the relevant institution (NUI or Trinity), scattered all over the country. You can hardly go door to door, but your electorate are the most likely to have access to broadband, and to be tuned in to viral marketing.
Prospective electees to our upper house- you know it makes sense!
