How do you let people know about your exciting coin-related activities? Here are some communication ideas that may help!
Contact local schools to see if they allow adults to present educational topics to the students. Whether in classrooms or in larger groups, the world of numismatics is
bound to capture imaginations. Be sure to bring information on how they can start a collection or find an appropriate coin club to join!
School district newsletters
Local schools can help spread your child-appropriate coin club/activity information. Write up a short announcement and ask to have it published in a school district's newsletter.
Teachers may be willing to pass on this kind of information to their students.
Radio and newspapers
Contact local newspapers and radio stations and offer a description of your activities. Local papers may be interested in promoting this type of community activity.
Create a flyer for your event. Include all the relevant information such as date(s), time(s), meeting location, and organizer's name.
Consider asking local coin and hobby shops, banks, and libraries for a spot where parents can see these flyers.
Don't forget that numismatic publications often have space for listing community events. Be sure to let them know well in advance of coin-related events for parents and children.
See whether your state's Department of Education or teacher's organizations have any means of disseminating information to teachers in your area. Some states have "list servs" over which you could announce your coin programs for children.
Make sure to follow all applicable rules, laws, and guidelines about sending emails.
The American Numismatic Association sends out a weekly e-mail for young collectors. To announce an activity for this audience, contact this email's administrator at YourNewsletter@money.org.
