Use a hashtag to build awareness around a cause or mission

The outdoor clothing and gear co-op, REI, holds a very important tradition every holiday season. The retailer closes their stores on Black Friday (cough, what?!) giving their employees the day off with pay. Employees are encouraged to spend time outside, experiencing the great outdoors and getting some mileage out of their coveted REI gear.

Needless to say, the act of sacrificing major sales on the biggest shopping day of the year is attention worthy, and REI puts their media spotlight to good use. The company challenges fans, followers and customers to put their credit cards away on Black Friday and enjoy the great outdoors instead, documenting their adventures with the hashtag #OptOutside.

The movement has made waves; over 700 other retailers have jumped on the #optoutside bandwagon.

If you’re looking to create awareness for a cause or to promote your brand’s mission, pull those hashtagged posts into a feed to display on your blog or website. You can even enable voting to turn the gallery into a voting contest.

In fact, if your looking to attract some new attention to your brand, a voting contest is the way to do it. Every participant reaching out to friends and family asking for a vote will expose your brand to new circles of potential customers. It’s a brand awareness gold-mine!
