Social media top tips

  1. Use event hashtags: Use #WalkofHope hashtags in your social media posts. This will help your content reach a wider audience and connect with other participants. 

  1. Share your story: Explain why you are participating in the Walk of Hope event and share your personal connection to brain tumour research. Authentic and heartfelt stories can resonate with others and inspire them to get involved or donate. 

  1. Utilise visual content: Share photos or videos from the event to give your followers a glimpse of your experience. Capture memorable moments, group photos or scenic views. Visual content tends to attract more attention and engagement. 

  1. Engage with the organisation: Tag Brain Tumour Research and our official social media accounts in your posts. This will increase the chances of us seeing and resharing your content, which can amplify your message. 

  1. Encourage donations: Include a call-to-action in your posts, urging your friends, family, and followers to donate to your page or Brain Tumour Research. Share the donation link or provide instructions on how they can contribute. 

  1. Collaborate with fellow participants: Connect with other Walk of Hope participants on social media. Like, comment and share their posts to show support and foster a sense of community.  

  1. Share fundraising progress: Update your followers on your fundraising progress. Set goals and let them know when you reach milestones. People are more likely to support a cause that is making progress and nearing its target. 

  1. Use multimedia formats: Besides regular posts, consider utilising other social media formats like Instagram Stories, Facebook Live, or TikTok videos. These formats provide an opportunity to engage your audience in a more interactive and dynamic way. 

  1. Express gratitude: Take the time to thank your supporters publicly. Tag and acknowledge individuals or businesses that have contributed to your fundraising efforts. Gratitude goes a long way and can encourage others to support your cause as well. 

  1. Stay positive and inspiring: Keep your posts uplifting and positive. Share messages of hope, resilience, and the importance of brain tumour research. Your enthusiasm and positivity can inspire others to get involved or contribute to the cause.
