Social Media and Web Presence Strategy
I propose we have a discussion on our online strategy which should reflect the upcoming goals of the "Indian Pirates".
- Increasing the Member base
I think we would add a site registration form for new people to join our mailing list. I usually prefer with mailchimp for stuff like this as it's dead simple but that's usually when i'm doing things for corporates. We can also explore self hosted solutions if that's more in line with the party ethos.
- Increasing Web presence
Regular Blog post on various topics of current events. We can have a discussion on a topic and i can convert that into an article. This would be very helpful as it should be able to increase our reach and hopefully bring more like minded people to our community. The content is also important for us to increase our SEO ranking + bring in traffic from social media sites.
We can also email the article to our members which should keep that active.
I was initially thinking of keeping the blog at piratespartyindia.com (hence me buying that domain before i found out about you guys) - that site is totally github hosted.
We can add the blog content to the current http://pirates.org.in also just not sure of how simple it would be to add a small blog engine there.
