How Can I help?

Consistency is key. Here are some suggestions on how you can help your business, the community, and the Chamber online through social media.

  • Like posts from the Chamber. By liking a post, it will tell the platform algorithm this is an active post.
  • Comment
    • Comment on the post
    • Interact with others who have commented
    • Use your personal and business page to make comments
    • Break the ice – be the first to make a comment to help a post get more engagement
  • Tag
    • Tagging is helpful, because we can’t all be friends with everyone. So be sure to tag friends/businesses who you know:
      • Is in photo(s) posted
      • Had attended an event that is being discussed
      • Might be interested in an event that is posted
      • Might be interested in a topic that is being discussed
      • Can offer a product being mentioned
      • DO not tag if you are unsure of whether they would find value in the post. If there's no direct correlation, they may find it is like someone shouting their name in a crowded room for no reason.
  • Share

    • Direct to your timeline
    • To your story
