Details

The workshop has three components, and each can stand alone. Registration is required for Part 3, since this will involve observing actual processes on the Virtual Region’s social media account.

PART 1 – THE BASICS: WHY AND HOW TO CARRY THE MESSAGE (45 minutes)

Encourage program fellows who do not understand how we carry the message to attend Part 1.

PART 2 – THE UNDERPINNINGS: SUPPORT ELEMENTS (1 hour)

Practical examples for effective digital outreach campaigns for public information and professional outreach, including how to use the digital version of When Should I Refer Someone to Overeaters Anonymous?. Focus will be on support structures needed prior to campaigns, ensuring adequate preparation in welcoming newcomers and professionals, and offering the support needed to help them determine if OA may benefit them, their patients, or their clients.

PART 3 – HANDS-ON: DESIGN AND PLACE SOCIAL MEDIA ADS (1 hour)

Registration by August 23 is required for Part 3. How-to instruction and practice aimed at service bodies with all, or nearly all, the pieces in place who want to run social media ads. This part will walk through the actual designing, targeting, timing, payment, and placing of ads.
