Promotions (and Events) are a great way to share any upcoming event, sale, or announcement you have with both your Alignable community and your extended Alignable network!
Any Promotion posted is not only shared with your Alignable community, but your Alignable connections are notified as well! Promotions are also added to your business profile, to your community's shared calendar, and to your connection's Referral Activity feeds - all of which are visited by new members every day!
Not only are Promotions a great way to inform your local business community about upcoming specials and sales, the Community pages can be seen by non-members (including consumers!) in your area as well as all Alignable members outside of your Local Community. These Community pages are SEO optimized, meaning that people can discover your Events & Promotions while searching for local happenings.
To make things even easier, you can share any event Promotion to your other social channels (and even your website!), so you don't need to post about the same event over and over again. Adding it once to Alignable can be used to share the listing to other platforms, like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn - other members can share your Promotions to their social channels to!
If you're interested in adding a Promotion, there are a number of places you can easily do so on Alignable:
- Promotions Page (under My Business in the left-hand menu)
- Your Business Page, in the Upcoming Events & Promotions section
- Your Community Page, on the Events & Promotions tab
