Many times organizations will have an upcoming event and they will send out a text saying “promote our upcoming event on your social media accounts” and wonder why no one comes to their event. Help your members EASILY promote your upcoming events using Social Sharing, here’s how:
(1) Create an article on your web page. Then put share links at the bottom or top of your article to make it easy for people to share. Use your favorite service or try the free Add to Any service. If you’re using WordPress just add the “Add to Any” plugin. (Biggest drawback, as of September 2017, the free service does not include Instagram.) For example:
People can click on the share buttons at the bottom of the post and, if they are logged into to that service, an excerpt of your content and a link will appear on their social media! Different ages of people often prefer to share events on different social media platforms: teens tend towards Instagram, folks aged 25 – 35 are the biggest users of Facebook, old-school folks still use email and the printer–make it easy for everyone to share your event THEIR WAY to their friends with social share buttons.
Now you can send out a text or email with the link to the webpage about your event, for example:
“Freedom fighters, please share the information about the upcoming rally on your social media! Go to http://d12m.com/march-and-rally-for-zimbabwe/ and click on the Social Media Share buttons at the bottom of the page to easily add the info to your social media. Thanks!”
Watch a lot more folks come to your next event!
