You’ll want to get the word out as soon as possible and spread it as far as possible, and we have the tools to help you do that. Our newsletter, Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter account are all great methods of spreading the word and they are at your disposal for fundraisers.
Head to the Baardskeerder’s submission page to send info in for our newsletter.
Include a brief write-up exactly as you’d like it to be printed, including all the important detail. You’d be surprised how many people send info without dates and venues! Don’t forget to include the project name, date, venue, price, theme, etc. If you have made a Facebook group page and or event page, include the link for that too.
Your announcement will be included in the next newsletter – usually within two weeks.
You’re welcome to post your event info on our main page – and event pages – on Facebook. There are also numerous other pages and groups out there which would be useful to broaden your exposure – use them!
You can find a handy list of many of the AfrikaBurn-related pages and groups on social media on our Community Links page.
Follow @AfrikaBurn, and #tag us, and we’ll be able to pick up on the content.
One word about asking our Communications crew to punt your event: whilst they’re happy to help from June to December (which is our annual ‘quiet’ period as far as communications about our main event goes), it’s not possible to promote your event from January until the end of May, as our channels need to be kept clear for important announcements.
