PROMOTE

Members can promote their own business services and special events on our private facebook group page as well as in our monthly newsletter. Members may not send individual emails to members without the individual’s approval.

We’ve provided instructions on how to promote below.

Please contact Terra Sutton to discuss facebook.
Please contact Suzanna Gratz to discuss the newsletter.
The illustration below is an ideal example of both your fb post and newsletter ad.
.
TIP #1 –  Use images
Whether you are promoting in our newsletter or in our FB Group, please provide an image that follows the SQUARE or SLIGHTLY HORIZONTAL image requirement. If using an image with text, do not use small text as it may not be seen. A printed flyer will not work. The image should be provided as a jpg (not a pdf).
.
TIP #2 –  Insert links
Ideally you have a fabulous website to send viewers to to learn more about you, your services and your events. This could be a special page that you created specifically for a special or an event, or just your home/landing page. If the link is to the home/landing page, please be sure to have the image you are using in the ad actually on that page, for continuity and so your reader knows they are in the right place.
.
TIP #3 – Be succinct
Try not to overwhelm readers with your post information. Use up to four sentences to let people know how to take advantage of what you are offering.  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 and phone number

NEWofMarin Facebook Directions

For active members only.  We have a closed group Facebook page where we can post our latest news, events, offers, requests, or relevant campaigns, etc. New members should request to join right by clicking the group ‘NEWofMarin’ facebook icon here. A Leadership Team member will see your request and welcome you! If that does not happen, please contact Terra Sutton.

We all joined NEWofMarin 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 active, interactive and interesting. So please like and share your fellow member’s posts. Please note: we must ask that you not inundate the group page with the same offer more than one time per week. If you notice others spamming the site, please inform Terra Sutton so she can remind the ambitious member. 

NEWofMarin NEWSLETTER Directions

Please provide Suzanna Gratz with your jpg image, up to four sentences and contact information by writing that information in an email to her (ie, not as a pdf attachment) by the last day of the preceding month.

All information is placed in the newsletter consecutively – that is, if she received a complete newsletter submission on the 15th of the month, that ad will be placed closer to the top of the newsletter then anything that comes later.

To see more examples of our newsletter ads, please visit our Newsletter archive. The newsletter is sent on the Saturday morning before our monthly meeting.
