Promote early and often. Involve NTEN, community members, and co-organizers. Give your community the tools to help you promote and engage before, during, and after your event.

NTEN Calendar

Organizers are required to add their events to NTEN’s calendar.

Sample Sharing Text

Make it easy for your community to help you promote by giving them some sample text that they may adapt and share. Pro tip: Make sure you are sharing this text as well.

In the example below, Michelle Regal, an organizer from the Women in Nonprofit Tech online group, included a request for promotional help in a personalized bulk message. A simple “Help Us Promote: The #nptechwomen call w @tiffani is gonna rock! Join us on 1/21 @ 10am PT: http://ow.ly/WId6H” resulted in numerous community tweets throughout the day.
