Find a Club and Take a Selfie!
August 13, 2018
Whether the goal is growing membership, raising funds for service-related endeavors, marketing an event, or finding new connections within your local community, it has become clear in recent years that a solid web presence is vital. This is true for Sertoma at the national level, the club level, and even at the member level.
Sharing our Sertoma stories, at any level, brings our organization to the attention of others. It doesn’t matter if fthey need assistance or want to assist Sertoma in meeting the hearing-related needs of others—if we stay hidden, it’s the same as not existing.
So what can your club do to make sure it has an online presence? Take a club selfie of course! Not sure what a club selfie is? It’s quite simple really, it’s a story. Club stories may share what the club does for the local community or those individuals that make up the community; stories educate by forwarding hearing health related information; they often include pictures of Sertomans doing Sertoma-related things; and most importantly, they explain the who, what, when, where and why’s of your club.
Each club story is a new selfie. Post them to a club Facebook page, Twitter or Instagram feed, or share a quick Snapchat. Take your pick, or post to all. Just make sure to post often!
Did you know that your club also has a national level web profile? It’s located on the Find A Club page hosted by headquarters. It is important to keep your club’s meeting location information up to date on each web presence you have, along with the national Find A Club listing. Take a moment now and locate your club’s marker on the map and verify the information it is sharing. If an update is needed, a club officer can submit it through the new Club Officers: Requests & Updates form.
So start snapping those club selfies and building your web presence. Make some new friends!
