We’ve had a bit of a break through today! A group on Twitter – @NotNielsenBot – contacted me today wanting to know how they could help us out! This is FANTASTIC!!!! But we have to really show that we are serious about this and get our momentum rolling again!!!
In two days, the petition – http://www.thepetitionsite.com/406/663/146/save-the-finder-on-fox/ – will be a month old. We are not at 15,000 names yet. That’s not even 500 names a day. Guys, we were averaging over 1,000 names a day for quite some time! The last week has really fallen off. I know that it’s because we’re starting to give up hope. Starting to think that our efforts have been in vain. But I’m saying that it’s way too soon to start thinking that way! It has only been a month, and for a good chunk of that time, the people who are in high places have been on vacation! We need to keep our efforts going because when these guys get back from vacation, do we want them to see that we gave up before we even really began? I certainly don’t!!!
It’s even more important now to get the attention of the ad companies as well! The Finder is still on reruns. So there are STILL ADS BEING SHOWN DURING THOSE TIME SLOTS! It’s a simple enough formula to go through! Instead of going to the kitchen for a pop or chips or something, just get on your computer or smartphone, and send out tweets to the advertisers you see! Takes just a couple of moments, but the pay off will be worth it! To make it even easier, just use this forumula – “ @DoritosUSA I saw your ad during #TheFinder on @FOXBroadcasting. Thanks for supporting a great show! #SaveTheFinder #NotaNielsenFamily” Copy / Paste and change the Twitter handle as necessary! Even if you’ve DVR’d the episode, don’t just fast-forward the commercials. Send out those Tweets, and try to fit in that it somehow. Perhaps just adding the words “with DVR” in there somehow would be enough. You might have to get creative with spacing and word usage, though! LOL It’s kind of long.
On the Save The Finder group page, one of the members, Joleen, took some extra time and even looked up Twitter info for the advertisers she saw during a couple of episodes. Here is the info she got for us!
