Social media: six tips to spread the word

A simple photo can say so much more than a paragraph of text. Photos can help you share information, communicate what your club is passionate about, and even get the attention of school leaders. Here are six tips to using social media for your K-Kids club.

      1. Stay connected. "Like" the official K-Kids page on Facebook and
          follow us on Twitter. Feel free to share any images or stories that
          you think your community would like to see.
      2. Be responsible. Obtain a signed photo release form and save it
          for every K-Kids member in your club. Be sure to not post a
          picture of any member who does not have a photo release form on
          file.
      3. Keep it real. Photos of real events and activities help convey your
          club's culture. Snap a photo of your K-Kids in action. Take photos
          that capture an emotion. Capture moments at charter
          ceremonies, member and officer installations, hands-on service
          projects, advocacy efforts and fundraising events.
      4. Keep it in focus. Don't use blurry or small photos. Crisp photos
          look great on different types and sizes of devices and computers.
      5. Keep it simple. When describing your photo, give readers all the
          information they need to understand your post. But be
          concise—include only important details like club name, school
          name, location and activity. Try to keep text to two or three
          sentences.
      6. Be strategic. Use the @ tag to alert specific people that you're
          talking about them, giving them a heads-up, and are open to
          them responding. And always tag @KiwanisKids so we can share
          your club's hard work!
