Communicating your election and incorporating social media [Video]

3 minutes to read

Social media is a great way to keep up with friends and events. But have you ever thought of using it to promote your elections?

Hello, and welcome to the Survey & Ballot Systems video blog!

Elections are one of the most influential activities your organization can offer members. And active members create excitement and encourage other members to become voters. With Social Media Sharing by Survey & Ballot Systems, you can provide voting members the opportunity to get the word out about your upcoming elections.

Here's how it works:

  • After someone votes, they are directed to a custom social media sharing page, where badges to popular social networks such as Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, and Twitter are displayed.
  • When clicked, a message about their participation in your election is shared with their social media followers.

Of course, sharing on social media is completely optional – the choice is theirs! Remember, word of mouth is powerful – and modern-day word of mouth comes in the form of online stories, tweets, videos and status updates.

Nearly 70 percent of Americans have a social media profile of some kind. Social Media Sharing from SBS helps you take advantage of the significance of social media and its demonstrated success in boosting turnout.
