How to sell lottery tickets: Let’s talk about promotion! Since we have moved online there are so many ways to promote the lottery:
Encouraging the parents to purchase a ticket
Post on the SSCs Social Media Pages
Have the cadets draft an e-mail to all of their family members (if they are outside of Ontario, have the cadets’ parents or SSC facilitate the purchase)
This is also a great skill to develop.
Have the parents share on their social media to support the squadron
SSC to e-mail all past members, alumni, and supporters to purchase a ticket
Have the cadets post on their social media pages requesting support from family and friends (18+)
Post details on local Facebook groups - Kinsmen, Legion, etc...
Have someone who is apart of the clubs promote on your SSCs behalf
Do a call blitz to the people who always support you
Use this as a touch base and have a conversation with them
Social media posting
Think beyond your page, think about all of the subgroups you and your supporters are apart of.
Don’t forget to have people tag your local squadron and the @ACLOPC
