Participate on Social Media
Use social media to spread the word about your event before, during, and after Kick Butts Day – and to engage with us!
Here are a few tips:
Connect with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to hear the latest Kick Butts Day updates and see what youth around the country are doing to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco.
When you post with #KickButtsDay on Twitter, Instagram or our Facebook timeline, you’ll be added to our #KickButtsDay gallery alongside organizers across the country:
Appoint one person in your Kick Butts Day planning team to be your social media specialist. Give this person the responsibility of tweeting about your Kick Butts Day preparations – and during your actual event.
To increase your reach, tag well-known or important people in your community and ask them to retweet or share. For example, you could tweet at your city or town council members, local DJs, news anchors or coaches – even your school principal!
Add a custom Kick Butts Day frame to your Facebook profile picture by clicking the link above. Set a temporary profile picture for the day of your event or even the week prior to generate buzz about your event!
Create a Facebook event for your Kick Butts Day activity and invite all your friends in your community. This is a great way to publicize your event because when your friends RSVP, it will appear in their newsfeeds.
You can also encourage members of your group and/or people who are coming to the event to post about the event on their Facebook pages.
Don’t forget to like our page, and be sure to tag us if you post about Kick Butts Day!
Tweet about your event using the hashtag #KickButtsDay. (Example: Reality Check is getting ready to kick butts at our dodgeball tournament on March 16th! #KickButtsDay)
Don’t forget to follow us, and be sure to tag your tweets with #KickButtsDay! Feel free to tweet at us (@KickButtsDay) anytime to let us know how things are going. We’re listening!
Love taking pictures? Great! Fill your Instagram feed with photos before, during, and after your event. Be sure to tag them #KickButtsDay! You can also build an interactive Instagram story with a behind the scenes look at your event.
Snap your event! Build your story for your followers. You can even create your own Snapchat geofilter that event attendees can use while they’re at your event. Download the Kick Butts Day geofilter below, and visit this link to learn about how you can upload your geofilter:
