Tips for Selling with Social Media

Facebook is more than just pictures of kids and cute animal videos. I know, sometimes I find that hard to believe myself, but when you have a message that matters to your community (help support my school) and a simple call to action (by buying some delicious local products by clicking here), you can meet your fundraising goals quickly.

There are two keys to getting people to read, click, and link to your post. The first key is making sure you “Like” FarmRaiser, the Organization/Cause, and the Producer/Vendor on Facebook. The second is using @tagging to make sure your post shows up in our feed, the vendor and organization feeds and your friends’ feeds. Use the @ symbol in front of a company name or friend’s name, and Facebook and Twitter will automatically notify them.  We put together an easy one page guide with suggested posts throughout the course of your campaign. Download it here, give it a try, and let us know how it works.
