The Battle for the Net Project
The project consisted of building new websites and landing pages to advocate for net neutrality and promote communication with state representatives and the Federal Communications Committee (FCC). These pages had to be designed to be easily shared through new and social media.
- Information was collected on state representatives, the FCC and cable, internet and telecommunication companies
- Using gathered information, the best marketing approach (including web pages, social media content, press releases, web banners, television and public stunts) was architected and designed
- Web technologies and landing pages were then developed using the bootstrap framework and APIs and promoted through social media blasts
The Battle for the Net project reached millions of people through landing pages, social media, and partner sites to take action against the FCC and America’s largest cable companies from restricting and slowing down parts of the internet.
