Blog article, Facebook link, twitter posts engaging with people.
@gargron email journalists, retalk aboit masto as a user-owned way to minimize or eliminate the kinds of excessive data scavenging being undertaken.
@gargron reach out to wired maybe. They're weird and hit and hot trash but they have reach. Be publicly visible.
@Mainebot Unghhhh I need help
@gargron yes. Welllllll you really just need to get a list of names and email addresses, and the shoot the human beings on the other side an email. I don't do publicity for work, and I'm not a marketing genius. My focus is on content creation and copywriting with light marketing on the side.
You need a person whose job is doing the thing, or a firm, but they'll make some demands about analytics, and reach, and message.
@gargron the basic thing is engagement though. Calls to action, and reaching your audience, and capitalizing on things like fb and CA and being relevant.
Now is when you want to push your agenda, and extoll your virtues. Strike while the iron is hot!
@Mainebot Alright! We've found the EXACT words to give me a shitload of anxiety ✨
But this is how you make the numbers big! You need to reach people, and typically you need someone with an audience for that. THEN, you need to be receptive here! Make it easy for people to find their place. That's working pretty good so far, despite a lot of weh weh weh about it.
You need a message that's going to make attention on Mastodon a good thing: we don't steal data, we're decentralized, we scale, we aren't subject to CA-style mining events, we aren't a single entity.
