    I have agreed to help a national charity (fairly small) to raise awareness about a new campaign they're starting. I am doing this for free because it's a cause I feel strongly about.

    What's the best way to give away free, no-obligation information (a PDF) in large volumes? I am not making money off of this, but I didn't know which forum to post this in.

    I'm willing to use paid advertising if it's effective but the only things I've given away were affiliate offers and the like, so legitimately free material is new to me. How do I distribute this free informational PDF in large quantities without paying a fortune? I use PPC to promote affiliate offers but this type of traffic is way too expensive for something I'm doing for free.

    Any and all help would be much appreciated.

    You need to start a facebook page, twiiter account and other social accounts to promote the cause.
    If the freebie has value ask people to share the links to receive it.
    Will you be collecting emails for the charity to send out further information or donation requests ?

    you better calm down, the traffic source you suggested is not good enough for getting exposure it's all cheap traffic which small kids like you use...

    Was that a racist remark I am smelling here? Because it is not tolerated here at BHW.
    And I do not see anyone "Shitposting" you.

    He Respectfully disagreed and did not deserve such a hateful reply....

    At this point I have only agreed to do my best to distribute the free material to a large audience. I wasn't asked to collect any information, just to distribute.

    You're right, I do need the traffic to be interested in the material, so quality is definitely necessary.

    Somebody recommended that I buy solo ads from an email list(s) but I've never done this before. Is there a source for reputable sellers?

    If he is harassing you then report him. But there is never a need for racist remarks.

    OK, so concentrate on social sharing but maybe have an optional opt in form or link to the website so that those that want to donate or receive further information can. Also maybe set up a youtube channel with a video about the charity and the giveaway.
    Good Luck

    To all semi-off topic posters.....
    You should all be ashamed of yourselves, really.....
    FFS THE OP asked for helpful advice regarding his charity,
    not to read a lot of hidden inneundo veiled BS posts from alpha males trying to hijack the thread,
    wise up for God's sake. Too much of this BS going on these days,
    we are here to learn and exchange ideas, not try and outwit each other.

    (Apologies to OP for off topic post, but maybe it will stop all the nonesense)
    Cheers for your patience and understanding.

    You know I am getting a little tired of threads not staying on subject and being hi-jacked over a personal
    argument. All I can recommend is if you have a problem with a member then report it or add them to the ignore list.

    As far as the original topic is concerned. OP I think I agree with others here that social media is going to be a great outlet for
    you to raise awareness. And for the price of other methods you could buy a couple of premium facebook accounts with real
    people on them to chat to about your cause. Direct them to your page :)

    Good luck with your charity drive. Nice to see someone putting marketing to use for charity instead of a quick buck.
    Not to say quick bucks aren't nice ;) We just see it a lot and see this rarely :)

    Edit: Goal_Line_Technologies posted as I was typing. I agree man....And I am stopping contributing to it as well.
    I have seen several threads Hi-jacked lately.....

    The charity is quite small but they promote an awesome cause that not many others talk about, and that cause is personal for me. So helping seemed like my obligation.

    Where do you recommend buying Facebook accounts like the ones you mentioned? I'm looking for a shortcut to build up a new FB page fast and this seems like a nice starting point. Thanks brother I appreciate your time.
