We’ve been working on some exciting new things to compliment the great work that’s already being done… we’re proud to announce that you’re looking at one of those things right now – this website! Here’s where you come in…
We’ve got the website, but now we need you!
Come inside and make yourself comfortable. You’ll find out all about the CLP, our future candidates, news, upcoming meetings, events and more. But, like any new house, there isn’t much furniture yet…
Do you have a flair for writing? Do you have something to say about a local issue, political or not? You’ve got the platform; our Member’s Blog. A special part of the website for our members to publish their own articles (but keep it clean and respectful, please!).
Love it or hate it, social media is all the rage (and it’s a bit like Marmite, I guess). It gives us access to a huge untapped audience of supporters and potential new members that wouldn’t otherwise know we exist. Social media is a two-way street; we can reach out to a wider audience, but they can reach right back to us at the click of a mouse or the touch of a screen. Here’s what we’ve got:
- Our Facebook page – promoting us, our messages and our activities through Facebook and providing a platform for discussion and collaboration. Amongst other things, our Blog posts will appear there too so they can be widely shared amongst friends. Give us a like, please, and let us know if you’d like to share anything through your new page.
- Our Twitter feed – drip-dropping little tidbits of information in the form of ‘tweets’ so anyone that ‘follows’ us knows what we’re up to. We’ll also share some of our friend’s tweets, spreading good messages far and wide. You guessed it, Blog posts get tweeted too! Please follow us and get in touch if you’d like to tweet anything through us.
Will you be a part of our online journey? I look forward to working with you in the future, achieving victories, big, and small, together.
Neil Martin (Digital Media Secretary, Rayleigh and Wickford CLP).
