Five Important Tips For Posting on Facebook
- Make your post public. This will allow the individuals you tag to see your post. You can do this without making your entire page public, just click on the drop down next to the “Post” button when creating your message, and choose “Public: Anyone on or off Facebook”.
- Share the post with friends in your curling community. Share the campaign with any groups you are in that include supporters of curling (your local curling rink or team group). You can also tag specific friends or pages who would support the campaign in your post (be specific, don’t tag everyone you know or your friends might not be too happy).
- Include one of the provided graphics, posts with pictures are more effective than posts without.
- Mention our social media targets. To mention a person or page in a Facebook post type "@" and then the Page's or group's name. Select a name from the list that appears. We have included these on our list of targets.
- Include the link to www.notasportsbar.ca with all your posts.
A Sample Post You Can Use!
@Rogers and @Bell recently increased fees paid for cable packages that include TSN and Sportsnet by licensed establishments with capacity over 100 people. The target of the rate increase is sports bars, but my local Curling rink and the thousands of other curling rinks across Canada that are licensed are unfairly getting caught up in this rate increase. It will cost us an extra $3000-$5000 a year. My local curling rink is not for-profit, volunteer driven, and is the heart of my community. Help us stop Bell and Rogers from gouging community curling clubs. Tell them to cancel the increase in cable fees to our rinks. We aren't sports bars. These fees hurt and aren't necessary. Visit www.notasportsbar.ca and share this post, tweet, email, call and tell them enough is enough.
