Brad's Beat: Alliance of SWMO Facebook Promotion
By Brad Douglas
JOPLIN, MO.--- For the next eight weeks they will be hiding envelopes around Joplin. They will post clues on their Facebook page every Tuesday. The goal of the promotion is to add likes to the Facebook page. With more likes, more people can see how the group is helping local families. If you find the envelope, all you have to do is post a selfie of you holding the prize.
"We haven't had a whole lot of likes on our Facebook page, we've already increased it by 1,500 likes just through this one idea alone. So you know what we're going to try and have some fun with it. And build the awareness for the Alliance at the same time," said Chelsey Hall, Alliance of SWMO.
The prizes were all sponsored by various businesses in town to help the group with the promotion. To view their Facebook page, click here.
