IS YOUR ONLINE PROFILE PAGE UP-TO-DATE?
This spring, ACV was contacted by a group of ladies planning a trail outing. As they went to the website to create their itinerary and choose who to visit, they bypassed those whose pages were empty. PLEASE MAKE AN EFFORT TO KEEP OUR PAGE INTERESTING AND INVITING! You never know when an opportunity like this might come your way. If you need help with your page, EMAIL US!
CALENDAR EVENTS GET YOU INVOLVED
When you post events on the ACV calendar, your events become part of ACV’s broader digital marketing/social media posts. If you know what events and activities you are planning for this season, take a few minutes to log-in and post everything to the calendar at once. People are not going to know what you are doing if you don’t tell them, and we can’t support your effort if you don’t put it on the calendar! If you need help with your the calendar, EMAIL US!
