Third-party candidates face unique struggles that require unique solutions as they are often shut out by the media.
1. Tell your friends/family/coworkers about me. Word-of-mouth is the most effective form of advertising, and as a third-party candidate it's likely to be almost all I get.
2. Display a Pick Shick sign in your yard or windows. It's been shown that voters need to be exposed to a candidate's name at least three times before it sticks. Let's get my name out there!
3. Write letters to the editors of all local papers. With the media's bias against third-party candidates, letters to the editors are about the only way my name will get into the newspapers, so let's put it in there ourselves!
4. Check the PickShick.org calendar to see at which events I will be campaigning. If you know of an event and it's not on my calendar, let me know and I will try to make an appearance.
5. If you're a member of a club or organization, suggest they endorse my campaign. It won't cost them any money and would benefit us both!
6. Donate! I don't like asking for money, but we don't have the huge corporate backers that our competitors are happy to roll over for. A simple $20 can put up ten more signs, or 20 bumper stickers, or 20 buttons around the district, so a little truly does go a long way.
