Take the Social Media Marketing Challenge!

Feel free to customize the messages below by changing the D25 links to your own club’s website address.

You can make a difference in whether your club, area, division and district achieve their goals. Please go online to invite others to join Toastmasters.

It’s a simple thing you can do in minutes via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Meetup and other social media outlets. (If you’re not on those yet, this may be a time to try them; contact me if you need help.) You can also simply send out e-mails.

So here’s a challenge for all D25 Toastmasters. Periodically (i.e., as often as possible) share one or more of these messages, or your own variations, with your local colleagues, friends and family:

  • Afraid of public speaking? Conquer your fear, have fun and make friends in Toastmasters. Learn more at www.d25toastmasters.org.

That’s a dozen Twitter-friendly messages you can post (one for each day of the rest of this Toastmasters year). Yes, this should be accompanied by a comprehensive D25 social media marketing strategy. Someday we’ll have that, but the eleventh hour is now here. Please accept the challenge. Get and stay involved in marketing. It matters!
