  2. 2. The Local Media: Social Media - everything TV – Regional, Local, Community Radio – local, independent, BBC, Community, web-based Print – regional, local, evening, morning, freebies, village/parish, in-house stuff Word-of-Mouth – face-to-face activist, electroni9c, email pyramids etc
  3. 3. Local Media - Satan: Parochial; football fixated; driven by advertisers; jaded by tree plantings/ cheque presentations everything; bombarded by rubbish – so treats it all as such; staffed by inexperienced or old lags; cosy; frustrating
  4. 4. Local Media – or Saint? Fertile Ground (almost virgin snow) for innovation; desperate for good material esp local; read cover t0 cover, word for word; very loyal readership; locally more read/listened to than any national; untapped opportunities (eg Editor’s Page!)
  5. 5. Therefore: Local Media + Good determined campaign = Great opportunity for VCS
  6. 6. Local Media – the offbeat: Agricultural Show, House to House, Fetes, local campaign pyramids,
  7. 7. A Local Media Campaign: National Perspective – Empower the local Support and guide don’t prescribe Localise the message (or be localisable) Work the networks Trust Celebrate Reward
