Helping My Son’s Troop with Social Media

My son is in the Boy Scouts. He loves every minute of it. He’s been learning all kinds of neat things like how to survive in the wild. He told me that his troop is trying to organize a jamboree and they need some help. They have a website, but they aren’t sure how to get more people to come to the website to support the jamboree. To me, this sounded like something that could be done with social media. I turned to the Internet to see what some of the social media experts had to say about advertising through social media.

There are a lot of good social media advertising techniques that can be used to promote preexisting websites. The quickest way to do this is with social networking. Many of the kids, their siblings, and their parents have accounts on social networks. We can easily use these to tell others about the site and the jamboree. I was thinking we could get a little creative with the networks. If we all get together one weekend, we could produce a video that would promote the site and the jamboree at the same time. Then we could post the video on video sites and the social networks. Something quick and funny will get the attention of many local people, as well as many local businesses who may want to support us.

I think the jamboree will be a big hit. It only takes a little bit of effort to use social media for advertising, and with all of us working together, we should be able to produce a big turnout for the jamboree. We may even have the jamboree take place over multiple days if we get enough attendants. I guess the boy scouts help me learn a few valuable lessons too.
