I'm going to a convention soon that's populated with the target audience for an Area51 proposal I'd like to promote. I'd love to have some sort of card or handbill that I can hand to people I meet, promoting the proposal. Is there anything pre-formatted for printing that I can use for this purpose?

We have this from the Supporting Community Conferences blog post.

But without the visual elements, there isn't much left to these flyers.

Perhaps you can use some of the copy from 'share this' link.

Hi!

I'm supporting a proposal to create a new Q&A website for people in a workplace interested in discussion that relates to general office or business without a specific tie to any professional field.

It's built on the same software as stackoverflow.com, a hugely popular site where over seven million programmers help each other with difficult programming problems. On Stack Overflow the audience votes for the best answer, so the answer you want is usually right at the top, not on page five.

I'm hoping that a site for people in a workplace interested in discussion that relates to general office or business without a specific tie to any professional field would have the same kind of network effect and turn into an amazing resource.

The proposal process is going on here:

It's hard to envision that a flyer handout is a way to bring in enough supporters to move the needle, but I'm never opposed to trying.

  • To get past the Definition phase, only tens of supporters are needed. I'm envisioning mentioning the proposal to people I meet and reinforcing the mention with a card they can keep and refer to later from the comfort of their keyboard. I don't know if I could get enough to complete that phase all by myself, but I could probably get enough to "move the needle." – Isaac Moses Dec 29 '11 at 19:47
  • @IsaacMoses: Personal contact followed up with a business card-style handout to remind them to followup might be useful. It was the "leave a stack of flyers on the table" that I wasn't so sure about. – Robert Cartaino Dec 29 '11 at 20:13

    I think we're on the same page, then. I have no interest in perpetrating the analog analog of spam. It'd be cool if there were a button I could press on any proposal to get a printable business card sheet with the information for that proposal. – Isaac Moses Dec 29 '11 at 20:18
