Social Media

Social networking sites can reach a large audience with little or no cost – use existing accounts, or ask colleagues, partners and volunteers to promote the event through their personal profiles.

Facebook
Create a GMW event and send invitations to your network, share information and status updates with others. Use the search facility to find other local GMW events and Facebook users with shared interests.

Instagram
Take photos or videos at your GMW event and share them on your Instagram account. Use the official GMW hashtag #GlobalMoneyWeek2019
Tip! Tag @globalmoneyweek in your posts and photos to get the chance to be featured on our page!

YouTube
Upload videos to YouTube to promote, inform, and educate about your GMW – include the link to your YouTube video or channel in Facebook updates and Tweets, and embed videos on your website.

Twitter
Use tweets for positive messages, calls for action, or to highlight key information about your event. Using hashtag #GlobalMoneyWeek2019, makes it easy for Twitter users to search for information about events locally and to connect with the global celebrations.
