Web Designer and Developer Bill Collier, Owner and CEO of Regal Blue Media
Bill Collier’s experience in new media and mobilization for political organizations and for businesses may go back decades, but in recent years, he has been front and center in some of the major political developments of our time.
Collier is a web designer and developer with extensive experience in new media, including member enrollment, community governance, and mobilization. His behind-the-scenes work has proved significant to some of the major political movements of this century.
Collier developed the website for The Committee To Unleash Prosperity, the preeminent “supply side portal” for an organization of which Steve Forbes, Art Laffer, Steve Moore, and Larry Kudlow are the principals. He has developed domains for TeamRockMinistry.com and, in eCommerce, for HypnoticCharisma.com, among others.
Collier was instrumental in #DONTGO, the immediate precursor to the Tea Party movement. #DONTGO was an online mobilization portal and, in its day, the most effective such in the center right. Collier played a key role in supporting efforts to organize the first TEA PARTY events. His mobilization, rapid response teams, and developing pop-up web properties materially added to the Tea Party’s original influence and whose reach extended to effecting White House action.
Collier was the chief community manager for Team Sarah, a social network recognized as the most successful (1 million page views a month) conservative white label political social network of the 2008 presidential election cycle. Collier devised and implemented moderation and mobilization standards, and was in charge of neutralizing attacks by political adversaries (“trolls”).
Collier co-founded the Freedomist which led to the creation of a digital newspaper, The Tioga Freedomist. Under his management, this drew over 1 million page views a month, becoming the dominant news source for its county and environs. The Drudge Report, Sean Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh have referenced some of the original Freedomist’s news stories. Collier recently resumed an active role for Freedomist.com.
