When Social Media Becomes Social Action

Written by John on December 18th, 2009

While much of the social media world is sharing the latest Tiger tale or LOL joke, there are places where your connectedness can do some good.  Country Choice Organic wants Facebook fans (ideally who love our stuff, but we’ll worry about that later).  To entice your “fan-ship”, we’re donating 5 bowls of oatmeal to area food banks for every new fan we get through January 15.  The offer is limited to 5000 fans, but that’s 25,000 bowls of oatmeal for people who may otherwise go without breakfast.  Get connected with the link below.  And while you’re at it, bring along a friend.  Your actions will speak louder than (cyber) words.

  1. Hello, Country Choice Organic,

    I’ve recently become a fan of yours on facebook, due to this promotion. What a great idea, I’m happy you’ve enabled me to be a part of it!

    I would suggest making the promotion easier to spread virally by asking fans to copy and paste the message in their status. It would also be helpful if there was something they could copy and paste from.

    I noticed 3 of my friends joined your page — but the stream stopped there since I didn’t include a call to action beyond joining your page.

    Best,
    Danielle
