Help The Cause

Thanks for the showing an interest in helping out!  If you haven't done so already, visit the about me page to learn more about me and what I'm trying to do here.  Also, please feel free to contact me if you ever have any questions, comments or complaints.  Here's a few ways to really help out.  Thanks!



Spread The Word

Without a large advertising budget (or any budget really), I rely heavily on word of mouth to reach new users.  If you value the content I've already provided and see the potential of where this can go, please tell everyone about TheSmartVoter™.  Tell your friends.  Tell your family.  Tell your coworkers.  Every new visitor gives us a little more power to change the status quo.  I try to make it easy for you to share by including links to Facebook, Twitter and many more.  Please use these tools to make as many people aware of the site as possible.



Get Involved

Since this is a fairly new site, I really need users to be engaged.  I've already started some discussion topics for you to let others know how you feel about different issues.  I need to get people commenting on those topics and then starting their own.  I've also created a section for like-minded individuals to come together and create their own interest groups.  There's also a blog section that allows you to create your own political blog.  These tools are only effective if people use them.  Most people will only become involved once they see others doing it.  Please help by being actively involved as I continue to launch new features.



Contribute Content

Are you a political "insider"?  Are you part of another like minded group that wants to provide unbiased facts to the voters?  I would love to discuss any partnership opportunities that will provide additional information to my users.  I will work diligently to reciprocate any considerable contributions to the site.  Please contact me with any suggestions on how we can work together.



Donate

It takes resources to develop the level of content and tools that I want to provide the voters.  Like any other project, financial requirements are always a major concern.  Revenue comes from advertising (which is directly related to site traffic) and donations.  I made a decision early on to limit the amount of display ads on this site.  I want to provide my visitors with a clean look and an enjoyable visit without being bombarded by advertisements.  You'll also notice a key location on most pages that provides free advertisement.  This is my little way of supporting worthy causes.  I could certainly use the ad revenue that would be generated by this spot but if I'm going to ask people to help my cause then it's only fitting that I do the same for others.

I know that times are tough for a lot of people and I understand if you can't give much.  Please consider helping with a financial donation even if it's only $5 or $10.  If every visitor gave only $10, I would be well on my way to develop the powerful, in-depth tools that I want to provide the American voters.  Of course, I'll accept more but every donation - no matter how large or small - is much needed and extremely appreciated.

Advertise

It's obvious that my revenue is generated from advertisements.  I've made a commitment to my users that I won't use this platform to express my opinions and beliefs.  That doesn't mean that you can't.  I believe that it's important for voters to hear every side of the story before making their decision.  By advertising with TheSmartVoter™, you are reaching the very voters that are eager to learn about politics.  While I support free speech and want to give everyone a chance to be heard, I will remove any advertisements that abuse the trust of of our users.
