The # 1 Digital Tip For Growing Your Disc Golf Community

Personalizing your Facebook Page or Group link is the easiest and quickest thing you can do to promote your disc golf club and the one that will be most impactful for growing your disc golf community. That’s why this is tip #1.

^

get found easily in search

^

bring awareness to your club

^

make your link consistent across social

^

reinforce your message

Get your message in front of as many disc golfers as possible to grow your community.

That’s why Tip #2 is Add Descriptions & call to actions To Your Images
(that includes your Logos + Cover Arts )

People want to look at the images, they want to see and interact with the beautiful artwork on your page and your logo, so imagine if this space had information or links about how to register for a club, or an upcoming tournament. Or how to buy promotional merch to support your next disc golf event.

Whatever you put in this space, Remember to make sure your call to action is consistent and always above the fold (that means – above the view more button).

Tip #3

Use Your Cover Art to Instantly Engage And Connect With Your Community

As the central element of your page or group, your cover image should instantly engage with your disc golf community

You want your cover art to reflect your disc golf club, and also provide information to your community.

Consider using the cover image art as a flyer for your disc golf community! You can include date, time, registration info club. When community members visit your Facebook Page or Group, that info will be hard to miss. 

Growing the sport of disc golf means making the information is current, up to date and available to new and existing community members.

 That’s why I recommend updating your cover art to act as your disc golf club flyer.

You can also use your cover art as a way to create engagement with your page. Updating the cover art regularly, let’s say, each club season, when you update that image facebook tells sends a notification to your followers that a new image was updated! People will want to go look at it, click on it, and see what kind of art you created!

 

On top of providing info integrated as part of the art, you can also have it in the image description, with the same information like a link to your website, how to sign up, the cost, or any other info a disc golfer might need to know about your club.

Have a quick and easy way for your community members to interact with your disc golf club.

That’s where the page button comes in. You want to make your Facebook page or group button work…for… you!

^

point the button to your clubs udisc registration page

^

Use the button to push to your online store

^

have the button as a quick contact method

Tip #5

Growing your disc community means keeping them in the know.

New players visit disc golf course specific Facebook Pages + Group when looking for league information, available maps, or course rules. 

That’s why this tip is all about making the most of your About Sections and Pinned Posts!

Make sure the ‘About’ section is always up to date with the latest info about the disc golf community! Keep the content consistent from social profile to profile to avoid confusing people.

Now, take your ‘About’ info, which could include league info, how to register, and cost, and then pin it to the top of your page!

By using pinned posts, you’re putting the important info about your club or community front and center when they hit your page.

It should be easy for current and future community members to find you online and get the information they need to participate.

That\s why this tip is so important.

It’s also important to format the content.

Although I see a lot of clubs using pinned posts, which is great, I love to see that, I think that it can be improved upon by formatting the content. Use spaces between content sections, or capital letters to highlight key elements your message.

You’ll be able to better serve your community by making the information easily digestible for people looking at your disc golf Facebook Page or Group.
