In my last blog I announced that we are launching a new eco initiative, called Eco Heroes. It is a cross between a game, a social media site, and a save-the-world environmental challenge. If you look at my homepage, you’ll see that I now have an extremely attractive Eco Heroes widget settling in nicely over on the right hand side.
I would be incredibly grateful if you could support us by passing the news along. Like all social media applications, Eco Heroes relies on having as many people as possible signed up from the get-go. We already have over 1,200 signups, purely from my announcement at the presentations for National Geographic last week. So we’re off to a good start, but the more the merrier. So please help us spread the word!
There are lots of ways to let your friends and/or your online community know about Eco Heroes – through a blog, a Tweet, or by adding the Eco Heroes widget to your website. There is also a video that introduces our modest little plan to save the world.
The site is now open for pre-registration, and users will be notified by email when we go fully live around the time I launch the third and final stage of my solo Pacific row, from Kiribati to Australia, around April 17.
Users can also sign up by SMS. This has worked really well for us when giving presentations. All they have to do is to text “Person Name firstname.lastname@example.org” to phone number (360) 262-6062.
Word-of-mouth recommendations are the lifeblood of initiatives like ours. Tweet, blog, email, call, Facebook, write a letter to the editor, post a message on your company’s intranet, stick a poster by the water fountain – even good old-fashioned TALK about Eco Heroes, and help save the world!
(And if you’ve got any great ideas for other ways to get the news out, and if there is anything I can do to help, please let me know by posting a comment on this blog.)
