“Chino Rotary Club Celebrates 92 Years of Service with Dinner/Auction Fundraiser”

Chino Rotary Dinner & Auction

Since February 1925, Rotary has been saving lives both close to home and around the world by tapping into a global network of service clubs dedicated to raise funds and awareness for challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, polio eradication, clean water and sanitation, and malnutrition just to name a few. The Chino Rotary Club is part of that global network that has united many great minds around a shared purpose: “To improve the quality of life in our community.” With a long history of involvement and financial support for local programs, the Chino Rotary Club aims at making 2017 a year to expand their support of community and international projects by hosting an array of fundraisers during the year that will help the club do what it does best, give!

“This year our goal is to raise $30,000 for Youth Leadership Camps, Entrepreneurial Training, Music, Essay and Speech Competitions for our local high school students, food, clothing and childcare for Chino Valley residents in need, basic commodities to support our active military troops, and new to our list of philanthropy endeavors is to support those who have been victims of human trafficking,” said Melinda Robbins, MBA President of the Chino Rotary Club. “We will meet this aggressive goal by starting our fundraising efforts with our 2017 Annual Dinner & Auction,” she concluded.

The Dinner and Auction’s theme is “The Heart of Chino – A Legacy of Service” which truly denotes the local club’s mission to give and serve. This event will be held on Thursday February 23, 2017 at the Los Serranos Country Club in Chino Hills from 6-9pm. Tickets for this event cost $35 per person and can be purchased online through Eventbrite.com under Dinner/Auction Fundraiser or purchased at the Chino Champion Office located at 13179 9th Street in Chino. Everyone is welcomed to attend this fun-filled Dinner and Auction Fundraiser.

The Chino Rotary Club is also seeking event sponsors and accepting items for the Silent and Live Auctions. “We seek the help of community sponsors to partner with our Club at various monetary levels to help us make a significant and sustainable difference in our community and together leave a lasting impact,” said Zeb Welborn President-elect of the Chino Rotary Club.

For more information about being an event sponsor or providing items for the auction, please call Melinda Robbins at 909-491-4791 or Zeb Welborn at 909-973-9089.

Let Zeb know if you plan on attending, send an email to Zeb@WelbornMedia.com.

How to Run a Facebook Contest for Your Business +Case Study at Local Golf Course

Zeb Welborn

The owner of Welborn Social Media and the founder of The Tutoring Solution.My goal is to help business owners share the passion they have for their business with as many potential customers as possible.By helping passionate people achieve their dreams I am helping to create a society of passionate leaders that will help inspire others to make their dreams a reality.

It’s the new year and I hope many of you have decided to make social networking a priority. With that in mind I want to share something with you to give you a little kick start on your Facebook page.

Contests for free stuff are cool.

Not only are they cool, but they are a great way to create word of mouth marketing at your business.

Read on to find our how you can run a Facebook contest for your business. Earlier this month we ran a Facebook contest for our client and here’s how we did it.

The Contest:

This client is a local golf course and they are currently in the process of renovating their putting green.  The course invested a lot of money to improve the experience for their golfers. They wanted to let as many golfers as possible know about it.

Our Facebook contest announced the upgraded putting green and the copy for the contest went something like this (picture below):

“Contest for Free Golf:  If you could name our NEW putting green . . . What would you name it?

The comment with the Most “Likes” will win a Free twosome of Golf, Monday – Thursday, AND our Favorite Comment will also win a Free twosome Monday – Thursday.

Contest ends at 5pm PST on Friday, November 21.

Good Luck!”

The Anatomy of a Great Facebook Contest for Your Business:

  • Contest is Easy to Enter – The contest needs to be easy to enter.  This contest is super easy to enter.  All they need to do is leave a comment to name the putting green.
  • Rules are Simple – The simpler the contest is, the more likely people are going to enter it.
  • Compelling Picture – There needs to be a unique, authentic and compelling picture to make a great Facebook contest. Pictures stand out much more than plain text.
  • Valuable Prize – The prize needs to be something your clients/customers want. Don’t get caught up, the prize doesn’t need to be anything over the top. I’ve seen other local golf courses give away 10 free rounds of golf to a contest winner or more, but a free twosome is all a golf course needs to get massive engagement on their Facebook page. Think about what fans of your page specifically would want — not what any person anywhere would want.
  • Clear End Date – Make sure you identify the end date of your contest.
  • Promote – Be sure to promote the Facebook contest for your business in as many ways as you possibly can.  For this particular contest the golf course announced it via their email newsletter.  Other ideas could be to inform customers at the point of sale, on the phone, and on your website.
  • Boost It – We knew this Facebook post would be popular so we boosted it.  Boosting a post on Facebook means Facebook will show it to more people.  For this contest we boosted the post by spending $5. A minor investment for a significant increase in exposure.

 

In the first comment to any contest post you should include the following disclaimer:

“By entering this contest, you agree to a complete release of Facebook from any or all liability in connection with this contest. This contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook.”

Now that you know how to create a killer Facebook contest for your business, let’s take a look at the type of results you can expect from running one.

The Results:

At the start of this contest this particular Facebook page had 883 “Likes.”  Just 4 days later, their Facebook grew by 47 Likes to 930.

The contest itself reached 2,976 people, was liked 33 times, commented on 111 times, and shared 15 times.  From all posts, including shares, the post had more than 339 likes, comments, and shares – 78 total likes, 241 total comments, and 20 shares.  The post was also clicked on 409 times.

For a Facebook page with less than a 1,000 followers, those numbers are pretty darn good.  Nearly 3,000 people saw this and better yet, more than 400 people engaged with this one post.

By the Numbers:

  • 47 New Likes – 47 new golfers exposed to golf course content for life.
  • 2,976 People Reached – 2,976 people physically saw this post
  • 1,741 Organic Reach – Post reached 1,741 people for free
  • 1,235 Paid Reach – Paid $5 to boost the post which went to 1,235 more people
  • 33 Likes on the post itself
  • 111 Comments on the post itself
  • 15 Shares on the post itself
  • 339 Total Likes, Comments and Shares after considering shared content
  • 78 Total Likes
  • 241 Total Comments
  • 20 Total Shares
  • 409 Clicks on the post itself

Follow Up:

The benefits of running a Facebook contest for your business don’t end there.  A great contest leverages the experience of the participants and winners of the contest.

Be sure to announce and recognize the contest winners as soon as you can with a comment on the contest post.  Be sure to ask them to send you a direct message with their contact information.  Don’t forget to get their email address so you can add them to your email list.

Then, use their profile pictures and announce them on your main Facebook page giving them some recognition but also reminding your Facebook following that if they check your posts they can win fun contests.  This will give you an opportunity to advertise and market to your audience moving forward for free.

Now your contest post gets even more visibility.  In this post we reached an additional 495 people with 143 post clicks, 15 likes, 8 comments and 1 share.

The final thing you want to do is send an email to the winners.  This email will let them know how they can claim their prize and, if it makes sense, ask them to take photos of their happiness with their prize and your business. This is the email we sent to the winners of this contest:

Subject: Congratulations on Winning A Free Twosome at (Golf Course)!

“(Name),

Congratulations on winning a free twosome of golf at (Golf Course).  We hope you enjoy your experience here.

If you’re interested, please take photos of your round and share them with me so I can post them on our Facebook page.

Thank you for participating!

Zeb”

An even better email to send out would be something like this:

Subject:  Congratulations on Winning A Free Twosome at (Golf Course)!

“(Name),

Congratulations on winning a free twosome of golf at (Golf Course).  We hope you enjoy your experience here.

If you’re up for it, we’d love to play golf with you and use some of the photos from our round on our Facebook page.  May we join you?

Totally understand if you’d like to play golf without us.  Either way, just let us know.

Thank you for participating!

Zeb”

If they did invite us to join them for a free round, it would have been a great opportunity to take lots of pictures that we could have used to post on the Facebook page for months to come.  It also gives these customers a chance to become loyal to your brand.

If you can’t find a way to take photos of the winner enjoying their prize, send the first email and hopefully they will send you a picture of them with their prize and you can use that to promote your contest (and your business) even more.

Sign up now to get all the info about a Facebook photo contest we ran for another client of ours where we reached 2,972 people, and collected multiple photos from our Facebook followers.

Welborn Media University Ultimate Facebook for Business Online CourseWe’ve been dreaming of and working on Welborn Media University for years and we’re excited to announce our first ever course…

The Ultimate Facebook For Business Online Course

My email inbox is flooded with emails asking for help on Facebook, whether it be questions, clarification, problems, or just how to be better at it.

Our business, Welborn Media, started with the goal to help small businesses become successful online.  As our business has grown so have our prices and many small businesses who we intended to help — want to hire us, but can’t afford to do so.

That’s when we came up with the idea for Welborn Media University. A social online learning system to educate business owners so they can share their passion and grow their business.  Because of the immense value we’ve achieved for our clients using Facebook we knew our first course would have to be The Ultimate Facebook for Business Online Course.

In the build-up to launching this class, we’ve been sharing our thoughts and ideas with others and we can’t tell you how exciting the response from the business community has been.

When we think of the type of person we wanted to create this course for, we thought of our good friend Jim Keneaster, the owner of ABC Computer Services in Chino, CA. Jim is involved in our local Chamber of Commerce and what struck us about him was the enthusiasm he had for his work. But, Jim was struggling to reach his business goals. We knew social media could help and we tried to figure out ways to work with one another, but Jim simply couldn’t afford our monthly services.

And so, we couldn’t help Jim. Until now…

This online course allows us to help so many more people: passionate, hard-working, and enthusiastic small business owners. We can teach small business owners like Jim to use Facebook to reach their business goals.

In 30 10-minute lessons that you can consume all at once or follow along with a one-a-day schedule, for a one-time fee of $299, you can learn everything you need to know about Facebook. The Ultimate Facebook for Business Online Course shares absolutely everything we’ve learned from managing dozens of Facebook accounts for all types of businesses.

It is a 30-day online course featuring:

  • Step-by-step videos that show exactly how we set up, grow, and build Facebook business pages
  • Assignments at the end of each lesson to motivate participants to take action
  • An online community to collaborate and work with (Private Facebook Group)
  • Podcast episodes discussing Facebook and social media
  • Images, videos, and text sharing all kinds of information

Plus there’s all kinds of other bonuses, find out more by CLICKING HERE.

The Ultimate Facebook for Business course will not only teach you tactics and techniques, but we’ll also share the mindset you need to have in order to create a successful social business.
