Need some good ideas on how to put your social media to use for fundraising?

Obliteride will be here before you know it, so there’s no better time to start getting the word out about what you are doing and why.

We encourage you to make the most of your social media by utilizing ours! We are always updating our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts with photos, videos, stories, ride weekend details, and other information from Obliteride and Fred Hutch.

Here are 5 ideas to help you fundraise using social media:

bullet-1 Download the Obliteride app from app store.

bullet-2 Take photos of you training (of course you will want to stop riding to be safe) and post with your thoughts about why you are riding. Make sure to link them to your Obliteride fundraising page.

bullet-3 Make sure to always use a photo when sharing on social media. People are more likely to read your content if you have an interesting photo.

bullet-4 Tag other people or pages. Post or tweet a thank you message and tag your friends (use the @ symbol and then type their name.) Your friends will see the shout out and so will their friends! Link it to your fundraising page and you might wind up with more donations! Even tag us so people can learn more! Use @Obliteride.

bullet-5 Use hashtags on Instagram and Twitter. The official hashtag we use is #Obliteride. Use this so we can see and share your posts!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure you link directly to your Obliteride fundraising page. Do not use Facebook’s fundraising tools. If you do, Facebook will take a cut of your donations.

If you haven’t done so already, we encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and subscribe to our blog for the latest updates.
