Tips to Promote
Whether you're raising money, building a community or just selling an awesome design, there's a few things you can do to help spread the word and reach your goal.
Promote your campaign on Facebook
Posting a status update on Facebook with your campaign link (e.g., makemymerch.in/yourcampaign) is a great way to get your campaign in front of your friends or your community. When you share your campaign link, Facebook will automatically add a link preview with a picture of your shirt and the title of your campaign. You can easily share your campaign on Facebook and other social networks by clicking on one of the icons above your bio in the right hand bar on your campaign page.
Create a Facebook Event and Invite Your Friends
Creating a Facebook event and inviting your friends is another easy way of getting the word out. Just go to www.facebook.com/events and click the "Create Event" link on the top right. An event allows you to go into more detail about your campaign as well as featuring additional pictures of your design (it also makes it easy to invite all your friends so they receive an email notification)!
Facebook Promotional Tools
You can also take advantage of Facebook's promotion tools, which allow you to promote a post to your friends and even advertise your campaign to other people for very affordable prices. You can create adverts and Sponsored stories to encourage people to visit your campaign page.
Tweet your campaign
If you are on Twitter, the most effective way to promote your campaign is by tweeting a picture of your design with a short message and link to your campaign page (e.g., makemymerch.in/yourcampaign). You can easily share your campaign on Twitter and other social networks by clicking on one of the icons above your bio in the right hand bar on your campaign page.
