Additional Resources

  • List Servs can be an advocates’ best friend. It is an easy, convenient way to keep track of people who are interested in your cause and to communicate with them quickly and efficiently via email. Free list serv providers:
    • gmail.com
    • ymail.com
  • Twitter.com sends short messages (140 characters) to your “followers” and to other social media sites.
  • Meetup.com is a free service that organizes local gatherings about anything, anywhere. It allows people to search for a topic they are interested in, and find people who want to meet to discuss or act.
  • Change.org is a free service that allows you to post an online petition in a centralized location for people to sign.
  • Freeconference.com is a free conference call service that allows you to book group conference calls. Participants will have to dial into a long distance number, but unlike most other paid conference call services, the conference itself is free.
  • BlogTalkRadio.com can help you build your own radio following.
  • Doodle.com is great for scheduling a meeting.
  • SurveyMonkey.com can help with surveys, online applications and event registration.
  • Skype.com is a free on-line tool for video calls or just free audio calls anywhere in the world.
