Move stinky good ideaGood

It works Smile ,


but if you want me to be hyper-critical...

I can see a few ways it can be improved. As part of a social media campaign you are looking at producing at least 2 per week of these over potentially an 8 week period, and whilst I can see that working as a one off I'm not sure it has sufficient personality to work as the basis for a sequence. I am pretty new at this stuff, but it seems to me like you should approach a protest campaign on social media much like you approach a sales campaign, with a concept of brand identity to hold peoples attention. If they have seen your image the first time and thought 'ooh I must write a letter for that' then even if they are scrolling past your post the second time it should trigger their memory without them having to stop and read the details of the text. You could instil that 'brand identity' with a background image, a specific font, or a layout, but I am not sure we've got it yet.

RE: LOBBY YOUR GOVERNMENT
That makes a lot of sense, Diche. It needs to have a recognizable logo and theme to make it work, not just a bunch of words. The words are good, and they say good things, but for most people the "brand recognition" is more important. It reminds me of the EVFI logo, every time I see that I know exactly what it is because it just stands out. (If you don't know, it's the fist with a vape pen in it that's plastered all around the ad space on here).

One thing we do have to be careful about as vapers fighting regulation is using the words 'Quit Smoking' sounds silly but those two words together gives the anti's the argument for medicinal regulation.

Perhaps rather than saying 'Quit Smoking' you could reword it to 'A less harmful alternative to smoking' ? just my two penneth Smile


It's great to see the growing passion behind the fight for our rights here on TVF though guys. Awesome! Good2

Good pointGood. but it did allow me to quit smoking after 40 years.. and the point of this is to push governments to do proper research and release information which they probably already have, but won't because of the money that is raised in taxes from the stinkies.

We all know that vaping can lead to quitting smoking. There are a lot of smokers who would love to quit but are finding it difficult just like I did.

I want this campaign to reach as many people as possible not just vapers but smokers and non smokers.
