For citizens

  1. 1. Spot.Us For Citizens, Bloggers and Civic Leaders How and why to use it.
  2. 2. Make the News • The public now has a freelance budget and can hire a reporter. Media can make a difference..... • A few dozen people willing to donate $10-$20 each is enough to hire a freelance journalist to investigate a local issue.
  3. 3. Community Journalism • Content commissioned by the public and owned by the public. • YOU can set the news agenda in your city.
  4. 4. Be Heard • We work to get content published in local media outlets.
  5. 5. Potential Payback • We work to sell first publishing rights to the content. • This means: The content is seen by more people and all proceeds go back to you! • You get your donation back to fund more journalism!!!!
