SPREAD THE WORD with Social Media!
Looking for ways to get the word out about your council’s activities? Expand your reach with these ideas:
• Create images members can use as profile pictures or cover photos to advertise events.
• Create event-specific hashtags to put on posters and other
publicity so you can follow student comments and help create a buzz to publicize events. Give an incentive for people to use your hashtag by offering a free ticket or other prize for one lucky hashtagger.
• Post photos and stories on social media about council events. Ask members to share them on their own accounts to spread the word.
• Create a Pinterest board with ideas for upcoming events like the Homecoming parade, spirit days, and so forth.
• Create a funny video promo or skit for an event and post it on YouTube. Send the URL to group members and ask them to send it to their friends.
