Are You Making it Easy for People to Talk About You?

Personalized Tweet Zone sign from Lakers build day in L.A.

Here’s a simple and effective tip to help you promote your business or upcoming event.

Create a sign that reminds your customers or guests to update their status about you.  Here’s an example of a “Tweet Zone” we helped create for our client Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles.  They host up to 25 volunteers on each of their build sites five days a week and you can imagine how many of them have smart phones.  They designed this sandwich board that can be updated with an event hashtag very easily.  It also serves as a reminder to move away from the building activity and hard hat areas to safely post their status updates.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money on signage, you can install a chalkboard or dry erase board at your location/event or order low cost business cards and pass them out.  There are so many ways to get the message out, the most important thing you need to do is ask.
