PLEASE READ FIRST
Below you will find a series of missions numbered 1-14 that we set up to promote our 2012 end of the world website. This was a major mission for about 4-5 years. These actions will still help promote the 2012 site (and people are still visiting and coming to faith through it) though number 1 below is no longer something we are continuing with.
We are currently working on another major mission with the website www.whybelieveingod.net which is still under construction. When it's is ready to be promoted on a large scale, the missions below will apply to this site. Feel free to have a look at it but hold back on promoting it at this stage as its not good to promote a half finished website. We will let you know when we're ready for the "big push".
In the meantime, you can still help us promote the sites we build in the following ways.... these will be added to in the coming weeks (today is April 7, 2013).
Do a Google search for "is there life after death" (use this exact phrase without the speech marks). Then scroll down the results till you come across the website: www.istherelifeafterdeath.net Today this site was found at the bottom of page one but you may have to scroll to page 3. When you have found this link in the Search Engine Results Page (SERP), click on it. Next, spend about 10 minutes on 3-4 pages. That's it!
And you can also use the sites we build to share the Gospel with your friends
One easy way to do this is to ask your friends if they have done the Good Person Test. You could email, Facebook message etc something like this. Hi John. Thought this website was worth a look. Have a look at the Good Person Test and let me know what you think.
Mission 1. Invite CHRISTIANS, to the "Mobilise Your Church" page.
Just flick them the following link: http://www.websiteevangelism.net/mobiliseyourchurch.htm
YOU CAN USE THE SOCIAL MEDIA BUTTONS AT THE TOP OF THE SIDE PANEL TO THE RIGHT.
It's especially important to invite pastors and leaders. If the Church leadership catches the vision for Website Evangelism (which is not just the 2012 site), and if they share it with their congregations and networks, the mission will grow faster and the Gospel will spread further. We need to learn how to harness the networking 'power' of the Internet for the sake of Jesus and his Gospel.
Mission 2. Subscribe to our Blog’s RSS Feed - it’s free!
This is one of the most significant things you can do. And you only need to do it once. This action sends a message to search engines like Google and Yahoo that people are interested in fresh content from the website. Search Engines then rewards the website with a higher rank in search results.
SCROLL TO 3 MINUTES and 55 SECONDS in the video below to see how to do this.
Subscribing to the RSS blog feed [RSS means Really Simple Syndication - a quick way to connect to fresh news content on the web] will send a fresh blog to your in box about 1-2 times a month. When you first subscribe you will receive all current blogs. Read whichever you want to and delete or keep as you desire. Please be careful not to delete the inbox folder created by your subscription.
To subscribe to our 2012 blog click the big orange button.
BLOG TOPICS INCLUDE: Government Conspiracy; Satan's Rapture; The I-Ching and Time Wave Zero, The Sounds of the Apocolypse; 2012 Doomsday Party; Did Noah's Flood Really Happen?; End Of The World, Yeah Right!; Will you go to hell for telling a lie; and, Pole Shift. Hopefully there will be another 1-2 blogs before December 21, 2012.
Mission 3. Interact with the site blog.
Leave comments on the blog posts of the 2012 website. You don't need to sign up for anything to do this and you don't have to agree with everything that is said. The fact that someone is interacting with a blog sends a message to Google that this site is being watched and it's people are interested in getting fresh content from this site and interacting with that content.
Mission 4. Visit the 2012 site. - too easy
While you're there, have a look around. Visit once a week for a month and explore 2-3 pages each time. Visiting only the home page is seen as a "bounce" by search engines and this is a negative.
Mission 5. Make the 2012 site a "Favourite".
Just click the appropriate command on your browser. Even better if you have a Google Tool bar since Google is the main search engine; use this to make your site a favourite. If you don't have the Google Tool bar (which is actually a useful browsing tool) you can download it here
Mission 6. Watch our 2012 Videos.
We've created some videos on 2012. It's still a bit of a learning curve. You can find our videos by clicking on the "Our Videos" link in the menu to the left.
After you watch each one, click the 'Like’ and ‘Share’ buttons... and pass on to as many as possible. Share on Facebook etc.
IMPORTANT NOTE: some videos will be in the form of a promo or "teaser" designed only to introduce the topic and get people curious enough to visit the website which the video points people to at the end. The whole idea is for people to find the video on a YouTube search then visit the End Of The World 2012 site (or whatever site the video points to).
If you have your own website or blog, you can embed these videos into them. If you have a YouTube account, you can also 'like' and 'comment' on the YouTube page. This is important for building up popularity and hence more visits. More visits means more people get the Gospel.
The following code is for the video giving answers on 2012 predictions/theories.

Mission 7. Post a link to the 2012 site on social media sites.
eg. Facebook, Bebo, MySpace….
... anywhere on the net where there is room for a comment. You can also leave links in guestbooks and forums. Someone left one on a site in the Netherlands and we got around 100 visits from them in just one day from just one link. One person visited the 2012 site because they clicked a link on a foreign website about beer! So post away. It's never been so easy to spread the Gospel.
SPECIAL NOTE: to make the most of this strategy, please focus on posting the following link http://www.endoftheworld2012.net/2012doomsday.htm (but do post other links as well) Post it on different DAYS of the week and at different TIMES of the day to reach as many people as possible.
Mission 8. Email a link to the 2012 site.
Some people are not on Facebook and other social media sites and even those who are can easily miss posts because other posts come in after them. You can say something like, "you've probably heard all the talk about the 2012 doomsday theories... check this site out... I think it's worth a look." Then include the link www.endoftheworld2012.net and send the email. That's it! The website will do the rest. That's one of the reasons why it's called, Website Evangelism.
Mission 9. Put www.endoftheworld2012.net just under your email signature.
If you don’t have a signature, perhaps you could create one. It’s just a quite invitation that people may take up when reading your mail. You can’t be asking people every day to visit the site but you can leave a gentle link there with no pressure, you're not in their face about it... the link is just sitting there quietly waiting to be clicked. It may look a bit like this…

(check it out sometime... before December 21)
Mission 10. Sign up as a member of the 2012 site.
Just visit the site, and click on the "register" button on the top of the side bar to the right of the page. You will then be able to post in the 2012 site forum which is a great way to personally bear witness to Jesus by sharing your faith with others. You will also not need to enter in an anti-spam code when commenting on a blog. Read number 11 below for more on this...
Mission 11. Post on the 2012 site's forum and interact with other members.
Many of the 2012 site members are not Christians! We have site members who are atheists, pagans, Buddhist, Muslims, Hindus.... Many are open to polite conversation. You will get the occasional objectionable person but we should not be surprised at that... it is no different than in life outside of the web.... people will express their opinions. People are also looking for answers.... you may be the one to bring the answer they need. :)
Mission 12. Please pray for Website Evangelism.
That God will be glorified in all things
The the Gospel will be spread
That we will stay true to the vision
That Christians will understand and get involved with the strategy of Website Evangelism
Mission 13. "Like" our Facebook page.
CLICK HERE to visit and "Like". You can also leave a comment. However, it is more important that you leave comments on the 2012 Blog and in the 2012 forum itself and not only the Facebook page. The reason is that when you comment on Facebook, this may help spread the 2012 and is a great opportunity for witnessing (which we don't want to stop you from) but it is not as powerful in improving our position in Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) as leaving a comment on the End Of The World 2012 site itself.
Mission 14. Search for our 2012 site on Google.
When visiting the 2012 website, enter the phrase "end of the world 2012" into a Google search bar. Then, when the "results" page come up, scroll down till you find out 2012 site at this address..... http://www.endoftheworld2012.net and click on it. Don't click on other sites. This is a more effective way of getting Google's attention than simply entering the website address in the URL bar.
