I have a few different methods for distributing The Town of Erwin Surveys. My first method I would like to utilize Facebook. Facebook blasts, reposts and shares can get a lot of attention and recognition. The Facebook post shouldn’t be sent out until Jan. 2. This is because of Christmas and then new years, everyone will be so busy and caught up with family and shopping the survey will get over looked. Also I would like to use direct mail for the community. I feel that if the mail was sent out the same week as the Facebook post than it will increase chances of being seen and taken.
Along with Facebook and Mail, having a web link and email invitation would also be of good use. My plan is to get out as many surveys as possible using as many outlets to actually get peoples attention.
For Local businesses I would like to send out email links, or direct mail to their company. I feel that email may be the best option, because mail may get thrown away. Similar to Facebook I want them to be sent out the week of January 2. To avoid all the mess and chaos from Christmas shopping and returns.
