While we sorely miss live events, GRIT gave runners a goal to focus and camaraderie over this unusual summer. The icing on the cake was being able to donate more than $11,000 to The DONNA Foundation.
Over the course of the summer months (June 21 through Sept. 22), over 1300 registrants from all 50 states and 32 countries participated in the event. Additionally, the event raised over $11,000 for its charity partner, The DONNA Foundation.

Did you hear? Instagram is giving users the option to view Instagram Live broadcasts on desktop PCs. This comes with a less intrusive format and URLs to cross-promote your streams. Instead of overlaying comments and emojis, the web version of Instagram separates them out to the side — with a separate user response column to the right side of the video feed.
And finding live videos is exactly as easy as it is on the app. In your Stories section, Live videos are labelled as such — there's a little magenta-colored rectangle that says "LIVE." Go check 'em out!
Just like Facebook Groups, your Page is a great place to engage with your participants. To increase interaction, encourage users to like, comment, bookmark, or share your posts. For example, you can ask a question or suggest participants share their training. If you’re posting a training tip, ask people to share their training philosophy or opinion on the subject. Above all, encourage a dialogue and BE. RESPONSIVE.
Facebook gives users the ability to select the Pages they want to see content from first, at the top of their News Feed. (Here’s how: https://www.facebook.com/help/1188278037864643) A simple, easy way to get your participants to take this step is to offer them an incentive. Tease out a limited promotion –giving those who are following the Page the opportunity to claim it first.
Work on building your community. Groups are booming on Facebook. They’re pretty much the platform’s most popular feature, and engagement in groups is skyrocketing. Although the side benefit of a group is increased registrations, the main focus of the group shouldn’t be pitching your event. It’s a space to engage with participants and for runners to share and connect. If your runners will be participating virtually, this space gives them a place to share their training, accomplishments and encourage others.
Let’s face it: organic reach on Facebook is at an all-time low. Algorithm changes can explain some of the decline, but a large part is also due simply to increased competition on the platform. According to Facebook, the average user has about 1,500 stories competing to appear in their News Feed every time they log on. Of the 1,500+ stories a person might see, Facebook displays approximately 300. To choose which stories to show, Facebook ranks each possible story (from more to less important) by looking at thousands of factors relative to each person.
So how can you make sure your content is relevant, and one of those 300? If you can maximize the number of “meaningful interactions” (comments, shares, etc.) that your content receives, you're likely to still see more organic reach. So, how do you increase meaningful interactions with your content? We'll be sharing tips all week.
Hashtags can help attract eyeballs in a matter of seconds. For the sake of not looking like a spammer, we’d suggest using only your top-performing tags instead of needlessly bloating your captions. Use a mix of trending, event specific and industry-related hashtags, and switch which ones you use for each post, as Instagram tends to catch onto repeated hashtag use and will stop prioritizing your content in that hashtag feed.
User-generated content is the holy grail on Instagram, especially for Virtual Events. It’s easily accessible content that’s created and approved by your audience... use it! (Just make sure you give the appropriate credit.)
Take advantage of engagement opportunities with Instagram Stories, including the polling feature or “Swipe Up” option (if you have over 10k followers). They’re easily the most popular type of content on the platform. In fact, Instagram Stories just passed the 500 million daily user mark which is pretty, pretty good.
Given that video autoplays in your followers’ feeds, there’s arguably no better way to grab someone’s attention when they’re sitting there scrolling. Instagram recognizes this and offers a suite of video options from Instagram Stories to standalone 60-second videos. Consider utilizing Instagram Live to showcase medals or finisher shirts.
Since many of you have turned your endurance events into Virtual happenings, we've put together some tips to help you get the most out of your organic efforts on Instagram.
You can probably guess, but the algorithm is now mainly based on engagement. This includes the number of likes, comments, video views, saves, shared posts, DM’s, and any other type of interactions a post gets. So, we've put together some tips to get you more of those. Check back here frequently so you don't miss them!
