Suggestions for Social Media

Social networking sites can reach a large audience with little or no cost – use existing accounts, or ask colleagues, partners and volunteers to promote the event through personal profiles.

Facebook: Create an event and send invitations to your network, share information and status updates with others. Use the search facility to find other local GMW events and Facebook users with shared interests.

Twitter: Short updates or ‘tweets’ can be used for positive messages, calls for action, or to highlight key information about your event. Using hashtags (key phrases starting with ‘#’) at the end of your tweet, such as #GMW2017, #GlobalMoneyWeek, and #LearnSaveEarn, makes it easy for Twitter users to search for information about events locally and to connect with the global celebrations.

YouTube: Upload videos to YouTube to promote, inform, and educate about your event – include the link to your YouTube video or channel in Facebook updates and Tweets, and embed videos on your website.

Instagram: Take photos or videos at your GMW event and share them on your Instagram account. Use GMW hastags #GlobalMoneyWeek #GMW2017 #LearnSaveEarn, but you could also add most popular hastags to get more exposure to your post, e.g. #instagood #photooftheday #picoftheday #like4like #likeforlike #smile #fun #instadaily #like #amzing #bestoftheday #instamood. Instagram is a great platform to link and share your post across Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or Flickr.

Bloggers: Contact a blogger in your local area who writes about community news or events, and ask them to publicize your GMW activities – be sure to give them clear and compelling information about your event.
