Promoting your Community Event
In your Share the Road to Zero Community Toolkit you have some excellent ready-to-go tools for promoting your Community Event:
- Press advertisement templates
- Poster templates
- Leaflet and invitation templates
- Copy and paste Social Media Post templates
There is also a step-by-step guide on how to use these templates on Page 8 of your booklet.
If you have some funding available booking a press advertisement in your local newspaper is a great way to raise awareness for your Community Event. Be sure to negotiate a good rate for your ad and ask the newspaper to support your event with some editorial coverage.
Posters and leaflets
Ask the businesses in your area to support your event by allowing you to place posters and leaflets on their premises. In the toolkit you will find a version ready to send to a professional printer, or if you don’t have a budget for this there is a version for you to print from your home printer.
Alternatively if you have a more personalised list of people you want to invite to your event the Invitation template is ideal for you. In the toolkit you will find a version ready to send to a professional printer, or if you don’t have a budget for this there is a version for you to print from your home printer.
Social media posts
A few post templates have been provided. You can simply copy and paste them into your social media posts. The Community Event logo has also been provided for you to upload with your posts. Using social media to count down to your event may be a useful way to influence people to act and attend.
We are going to send you just two more emails, then it’s over to you. Keep an eye on your inbox for ‘Evaluating your Community Event’.
