The best Dnow in the world will be useless if no one knows about it. But how do you promote this great event? First of all I would suggest starting early. Not so early that students get exhausted hearing about it but early enough that they can plan accordingly and you can work on removing their excuses. Second, I would focus on social media. Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are where your students are spending their time so you want to take advantage of these resources to get the word out about your event. And the added bonus to this is that not only are these promotional options free, they are also time efficient since it does not take you much time to post and your students can do most of the work by Retweeting, Liking, sharing, and everything else they can do to get the word out. Finally, allow your students to promote the event. This can be everything from getting your students t-shirts to wear if your community does not have standardized dress, to giving them posters to hang, to challenging them to start their own social media campaign. Whatever it is this is a powerful method because it means one thing to hear about an event from you but it means completely different when it comes from one of their peers. Now all that is left is for you to formulate a plan and get out there to promote your great event and if you follow these simple tips I know you will have great success.
