Facebook for Your Raffle’s Success
So your team, church, organization or school is preparing to hold a raffle.
A raffle is a fantastic way to bring in much needed money for your organization’s good cause.
But how are you going to get the word out about your raffle?
How would you like to promote your upcoming raffle event on the number one website in the world? You can on Facebook. By the way, did I mention you can do it for free?
Simply create a “Facebook Page” for your raffle event.
The easiest way to create your Page is to go to: www.facebook.com/pages/create.php
The right-hand field is titled “Official Page.” Check “brand, product, or organization.” Then enter a “Page name” such as “Goody-Two-Shoes Car Raffle.” Incorporate a few key words into the Page name; name of organization, raffle theme or prize, and the word “raffle” will help with searches.
Now invite all of your sponsors, volunteers, and donors to your new Facebook page. Ask them to click the “like” button and to spread the word on their own Facebook pages.
If you want to sell your raffle tickets directly via your Page, just create a donation button in Pay-Pal, linking to that directly from the description of your event. You will need to mail the raffle tickets, but you may make some extra sales.
Your Facebook page will remain online after your event, so keep it updated with announcements of your raffle winners. You can recognize your good sponsors, prize donors, and volunteers.
Your cause’s Page and event page can continue to gather fans for your organization and future raffles.
Let’s see your next raffle on Facebook.
