10 Ways To Help The Blue Mountains

  • Create & Share an epic post like mine.
  • Share your post to your local Facebook Groups that might be interested. Check with the Admin of the Group first though if it is OK to post.
  • Of all the businesses you tagged, reach out and ask them to share the post too and/or encourage them to add an offer in the comments.
  • Like their Facebook Page and/or follow them on Instagram.
  • When stopping into a store or cafe and you are on Facebook or Instagram etc and have time: - checkin - tag friends if ok with them - optionally use #tags: #buyblue #location (Eg: #blackheath). Take photos and share.
  • If you want to be super generous and have some fun with friends offer them a free coffee or breakfast at the venue (your shout) if they can guess what you ordered. PS: I’ve experimented with this. It’s fun and so far the odds are 50/50 they guess. The bigger the group the lower the odds! But still fun.
  • Be sure to Like, Love etc each comment + Engage and continue the conversation with each comment where possible. The conversation helps push the post to more people's feeds.
  • Loved your experience? Leave a review on the Facebook Page of the place you visited? If they aren’t on Facebook, then see if they are in Google MyBusiness, leave a review there.
  • Bring an esky with frozen ice packs. WHY: you might find delicious small goods, cakes and delicious cheeses to take home.

Sample of checking in with an offer to my friends.

The reason this page is specific to the Blue Mountains is because this is the region I live and work in. It’s not lost on me that many areas across Australia are suffering too. 

If you want to do something similar for your region, I am happy to host and replicate what I have done here for you at no charge. No strings. I recommend you buy a simple domain name as it’s needs to be easy to remember and post. 

I’ll take care of everything else and show you what I need. I’ll build the page and host it for you indefinitely. 

Things I will help you with:

✅ Point the domain to a page on my website.
✅ Replicate Facebook script file relevant to your area. 
✅ Replicate this page with changes to hashtags etc where relevant.
✅ Change Sponsored by to your organisation or business. 
✅ Add relevant banner image (it must be your image or have permission for you to use it as well as provide us with permission to use it for the page).
