KEEP UKRAINE’S MEDIA GOING
While we have all watched in horror at the events unfolding in Ukraine, we also have a tremendous sense of pride in the work of our colleagues and former students in Ukraine and the other Eastern Cooperative countries.
To that end, Mark Lee Hunter and I are announcing that we will be donating 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of our book “Community Powered Journalism” (Order Now) to the “Keep Ukraine’s media going” GoFundMe organized by our colleague, Jakub Parusinski.
We urge all who can to give generously to this cause, to stop all business with Russia and to follow independent news organizations on the ground in Ukraine like The Kyiv Independent.
What is Community-Powered Journalism?
We provide a detailed roadmap for media and news organizations to achieve symbiosis and sustainability in concert with the communities of people served.
Where to begin?
“What can I do TODAY to bring readers and editors into a dialogue? What (smaller) methods or questions or suggestions do you have for me?”
Reaching new audiences
“How can we reach people who are, so far, not interested in our content? How can we find out who those people are and what can we do to serve them best?”
Mapping the Customer Journey
“How do I get a total picture of how people become members, so that I can get others to follow the same path?”
