You’ve asked; we’ve listened: Weekly Events Newsletter, A “Truly” Community Calendar, and Resources to get the word out about your event!
There are more events happening in Givat Shmuel now than ever before. Yet, the most common issue we hear – from locals and event organizers alike – is that no one ever knows what’s happening.
That changes today!
We at The GSC have been working hard to figure out the best solution to this problem, and were happy to announce a new slew of event resources – available now!
Community organizers rejoice! As of today, you can now add your events to the The GSC’s online calendar – and have it seen by hundreds of people – all on your own!
The Events Calendar is the most-visited page on The GSC Site, and we’re excited to be opening it up to everyone in Givat Shmuel. You can add and update your events whenever you want, and they’ll appear within 24 hours!
If free website advertising wasn’t enough incentive, the Community Calendar will also be powering our new Weekly Events Newsletter – more on that in a minute – and any events in the Calendar will also be emailed to the community and shared automatically in Camp Bar Ilan.
The Weekly Events Digest
The #1 reason people subscribe to the GSC Monthly Newsletter is to find out about upcoming events. However, with a monthly delivery date and no criteria for what we include, many local events either don’t get the attention they deserve, or fall through the cracks entirely.
Starting June 5th, we’ll be publishing a Weekly Events Digest that includes all of the events happening in Givat Shmuel – so long as they’ve been added to the Community Calendar.
To make sure no one misses out, we’ll be emailing everyone currently subscribed to the GSC Monthly Newsletter. If you don’t want to receive the Weekly Events Digest, it takes just 30 seconds to opt out.
Free Facebook Advertising
It’s a struggle to get your event noticed for more than five minutes before it disappears down Facebook’s news feed. As of today, you can add your event to The GSC Facebook Page, and we’ll do the work for you!
All you need to do is invite our new “Givat Shmuel” Facebook account to the event, and add it as an event host. We’ll then be able to include it on the page, invite our list of community members, and even pin the event and publicize it for you!
Everything You Need to Know – And More!
None of this would be complete, if we didn’t show you how to take advantage of The GSC’s resources. As such, we’ve put together a compilation of tutorials and best practices to help you plan, advertise, and even get funding for your community event.
What are you waiting for – add your event to The GSC Community Calendar today!
