People trust their friends. We spend a lot of time trying to get more exposure so more kids have a chance to experience Stomping Ground, but the best way for to get more kids to camp is for parents to hear about it from a friend. We trust our friends and when they say great things about a restaurant, camp, school, etc we check it out. What you may not realize is how much impact you have with your social media presence to help your favorite not for profits and local businesses. Here are 5 simple things you can do to help us out. Thanks in advance for all your help!
SHARE FACEBOOK POSTS
What shows up in your newsfeed is determined by Facebook’s algorithm, Edgerank. When Edgerank sees that more people are interacting with a post - liking, commenting, and sharing - they put it in more people’s newsfeeds. So if you see a post that resonates with you, please like and share it. It really helps!
POST IN FACEBOOK GROUPS
You wouldn’t believe how many campers have found camp because of parents saying nice things about us in parent groups on Facebook. By posting in a group you are posting to a targeted group of people and they typically all get a notification. This helps the message to actually get read and drastically improves the chance that someone will take action. If you are a member of parent groups on Facebook and love camp, please let them know.
LINK BACK TO THEIR WEBSITE
Google determines what shows up on search terms based on what they think is most useful. What they determine to be most useful is based on a million criteria, but one of them is links back to the site. If you have a blog or other website, writing a quick blurb about them and linking back to the site helps tell Google that the site is valuable.
TELL YOUR FRIENDS
Even better than telling mass groups of people online, choosing some friends you think might love camp and telling them stories from the summer or why you send your child to camp is the single best way to spread the word.
WRITE A REVIEW
One of the first things people look for when choosing camps is what other people have said about the experience. If you loved your camp experience writing a quick review helps more people get an understanding of what they are getting into. You can review on Yelp, Google, or Facebook.
If you love Stomping Ground please take a minute and write quick review and tell a friend.
