Always include a link to your fundraising page
When you registered for #My75Miles you will have created your own unique fundraising page. This is the route through which your friends, family, supporters and followers can sponsor you, so make sure you include a link to it in every post or tweet you send out.
Keep it busy
Social media is an ever churning machine and people’s feeds get filled up at break neck speed, so be sure to post and update regularly so that your followers and friends don’t miss what you’re up to.
Images and videos work wonders
Posts and tweets with images and videos generate far greater engagement levels than those that don’t, so if you’re out training or racking up your miles, take some pics and post them up. You could even become a vlogger for the duration of your challenge, or live stream along the way.
Use the hashtag
Don’t forget to use the #My75Miles hashtag in all your posts. This will ensure that your posts feature on our social media wall and will also mean that you can search Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag to see what other people are up to.
Compete with your friends
Tag your friends and followers in your posts, encourage them to take on their own #My75Miles challenge and then why not compete with each other across your social media to see who can complete their challenge first or raise the most money.
Explain why you’re doing this
Remind people why you’re taking on this challenge and who you’re doing it for. You’ll find loads of information about the Charity here on the website, but if you’ve got personal experience of using our services, share your own story.
Think outside the box
Get creative with your social media and think about ways you can engage with your sponsors, keep them informed and keep them interested in what you’re doing.
Thank your sponsors
Don’t forget to thank those who sponsor you and keep them up to date with your progress.
