We’ve plugged adopting pets and ways you can still help in the Gulf of Mexico in the past weeks. While surfing the web the other day we found this article on five ways to support a favorite cause on Mashable. This is right up our alley, we can promote a cause we care about and use social media to do it. As PR folks we are big fans of social media and as animal and nature lovers we are passionate about helping out animals and people effected by natural and man-made disasters.
If you have a cause or causes you are passionate about and want to help, check out the Mashable article that gives you great videos on how to use these five different social media outlets to get the word out about your causes.
Here are some ideas for promoting your cause online.
1. Start a Facebook Page – Make sure you update it constantly. People like to know what’s going on and what events are happening. Make sure to invite people to upcoming events using Facebook Events as well.
2. TWEET! – Tweet from events with stats and updates on what’s going on. Make sure to tweet a lot before and after the event so people are aware and can attend, and also know what a success it was.
3. Use other outlets like Socialvibe. Which allows you to create a specific cause and promote online using blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Digg and any other social media outlet you can think of.
Keep being good and doing good.
