In an effort to make the District current in its social media, posts from this website will now post to a Facebook page, too.
We realize that many individuals and units rely on Facebook as their primary communication method. For those units, families, and scouts, distributing valuable information easily through Facebook is highly desirable.
If you find an article timely or interesting, please “Like” the post. This will increase the number of people who can receive the same value.
As we enter the Fall Recruiting season, we will be using social media to push information to prospective families and scouts to learn more about what we offer. Sharing good posts for those audiences will allow us as a district to leverage information shared to persons who would not normally see our posts.
For example, a mother may have a new Tiger Cub in Pike Township also on a new soccer team. She joins a Facebook group for the soccer team. As a result, the new friends on Facebook may see a link to a photo of her son in a scout uniform. The next week, the new friends may see that the Tiger Cub mom liked an article about an upcoming hayride for scouts. The next month, they see an article about how scouting improves a boy’s cheerfulness and trustworthiness.
All of these examples are useful marketing for us. Very few took more than a few “Like” clicks for the young mom.
So, please have your unit’s Facebook page “Like” our new page. We would love it!
