Regular, informative posts will ensure that residents engage with your
organisation. Residents are more likely to be interested in your organisation if
you are transparent and provide a steady stream of information.
Being able to post as a partner comes with a bit of responsibility. Because you are able to push information via email, SMS and push notification, it is important to keep information interesting and relevant to the community.
There is an important difference between keeping your neighbours informed about local issues and personal causes you believe in. Don’t push any political, religious or other agendas as it discredits your organisation.
It is important that your organisation responds to direct communication from residents. It is also a good idea to engage with residents who post about issues they may be having in the neighbourhood. Comment, Thank and Share posts from residents. This makes your organisation seem interactive and helpful.
