Social Media Guidelines for Branch Operations.
Social media has become one of the most powerful tools to reach a large audience quickly and effectively, and costs virtually nothing to use.
For Legion Branches, social media offers incredible exposure, allowing you to share information, promote your Branch, engage your current members, reach out to potential new members, and spread the word on all the great things you do within your community.
It's word-of-mouth in its most efficient form. And when used well, it can convert followers into members, volunteers and supporters.
Dominion Command developed "Social Media Guidelines" for Branch Operations, to help Branches make the most of their social media efforts.
We encourage all Branches to use social media to connect with Veterans, your members and your potential members, and help grow your branch!
