As you have probably noticed, each of these newsletters will generally start with a set of hashtags. These hashtags are trending topics and have information indexed on all platforms that support hashtags. For instance, today is Worlds AIDS Day as well as Cyber Monday.
Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday, the day dedicated to our non profit sector. Many local and community organizations depend on holiday giving to close the gap in resources so that they can provide new and maintain the same services customers need. Something as simple as giving a fact or "shout out" to a helping organization or cause that you believe and ending it with the hashtag #GivingTuesday can expand your reach exponentially as others reshare your post or tweet.
The most popular social media platforms that support hashtags are Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. Try it, you just might like it. How to join the conversation:
1. Log into your favorite social media platform
2. Type in one of the hashtags above as shown (pound sign followed by topic with no space)
3. View interesting posts, tweets, pictures, and links to relevant blogs and articles.
4. Respond, reshare, or reblog information.
Please note that our Small Business Saturday Special to build a brand page on the social media site of your choosing
has been extended for Cyber Week until Thursday, December 4. Details can be found on the website or Facebook Page.
