Getting influencers to talk about your petition is the best way to reach potential supporters beyond your network. Influencers could be bloggers, members of the news media (start locally!), civic leaders, business owners, elected officials, and celebrities.
Who is affected by your issue and could benefit if your petition is successful? Reach out to these influencers and tell them about your petition. Find out if they can help promote it.
Research your issue online and look for influencers. Look for their contact information, or reach out on Facebook or Twitter, and tell them about your petition. Your supporters are out there – get the word out!
