The best thing to do is keep reaching out the same way you’ve always reached out to them, whether that’s through personal contact, large seminars, blogging, or social media.
Here are a few tips to help you get started.
Social media can be an effective way to reach your followers, especially if you are already active on Facebook or Twitter. We suggest:
- Sharing our blog posts
- Sharing our Facebook updates
- Retweeting us
- Explaining why you recommend us or our content
- Tweeting or sharing your landing page
If you choose to use social media to promote us, remember that there is such a thing as too much. If you sound like a walking advertisement, you will lose followers. If you use social media comparatively infrequently (e.g. once a day), you should keep it to approximately one post a week. If you use social media very frequently (e.g. 5-6 times a day or more), consider linking to us approximately once a day.
If you maintain a blog, you should consider linking to us from it when appropriate. For example, if you are a counselor, you might want to link to your Covenant Eyes landing page any time you write a post about sex addiction. If you write about family and parenting issues, consider linking to your landing page when you talk about Internet safety.
You may also repost our blog posts or e-magazine articles if you wish.
Church groups and speaking engagements
Speaking opportunities are perfect for spreading the word about Internet safety. As a pastor, for example, you could preach a sermon on biblical accountability and mention Internet Accountability through Covenant Eyes. If your church has a parenting class, one session could focus on managing Internet risks among kids, and you could discuss Covenant Eyes as a parenting tool. If you are on a speaker tour, you could incorporate Covenant Eyes as a recommendation during your talk and provide flyers with your affiliate information.
