You asked for it and we listened! We now have a closed group Facebook page where we can all post our latest news, events, offers, requests, etc. Click on the Facebook icon to get to our new page. This should eliminate the need for members to send out emails to the group (a NEWoM no-no).
In order to post, we ask that you:
1. Be a member of our Facebook closed group;
We are all about networking and this is a simple yet important part of our mission.
Please use an image that follows the SQUARE or SLIGHTLY HORIZONTAL image requirement. If using an image, do not use any with small text as it won’t be seen. A printed flyer is not a proper use of Facebook. If no image is provided, your NEWoM headshot will be used instead.
Here is an example of a great post EXCEPT it has no address!
DO email the post as text in the body of the email.
DON’T make it a pdf/jpg attachment that has to be retyped.
KEEP IT SHORT! For example:
SAVE THE DATE
Date of the event
Start and end time of the event
1-2 sentences with details of the event
Website link or phone number
Send a link for readers to learn more by visiting your site (or a relevant site). If you don’t have a website, put up to four sentences and how people need to take advantage of what you are offering. If you need a website built, LMK and we can have one up for you in a few weeks.
4. FOR EVENTS:
Start every post with “SAVE THE DATE”, list the day of the week, date, time, location, then the “TITLE” and two concise intro sentences explaining only the most relevant information. Then provide a link to your site’s promo page, if you have one.
5. FOR SPECIALS:
Start every post with something like “NEWoM Exclusive Special” or something like that. then again, two sentences and a link to your site, where you promote it further and have contact information.
6. AFTER THE POST GOES UP:
As a courtesy to all the NEWoM members, once you are notified that your post is up, take the time to go back on to the FB page, and both LIKE and SHARE it.
We all joined NEWoM to network and share our talents with the world. It would be GREAT if we could all do our part to make our facebook page much more active, interactive and interesting. So please, when you are on your FB page, go to our FB page and like and share your fellow member’s posts.
