AUMC Kids' Stuff Consignment Sale

Publicity Team

Publicity

The Publicity Team works in the months, weeks, and days before the sale to successfully advertise the sale to the around around Annandale United Methodist Church to include areas in Annandale, Falls Church, Springfield and Alexandria.  Team volunteers will focus on online advertising or print advertising. 

Online Advertisement
Members of the team should be comfortable with navigating the web. Team volunteers should also be able to positively community with community groups, including MOMS Clubs and local elementary school staff.  Certain sites require a one-time notice placed (i.e., WashingtonPost.com) while others require weekly ad placements (i.e., CraigsList.com).

Community Print Advertisement
Flyers with tear-off information need to be posted around the area at family - and child-friendly businesses, including libraries, four local REC Centers, coffee houses, etc.  We also advertise the sale to the congregations of surrounding Methodist Churches.  Team members contact all local Church offices, including AUMC, at least four weeks before the sale and email or fax a notice to be placed into the Sunday Bulletins on a Sunday before the Sale.  Team members may also take flyers to local elementary schools for students to take home in their weekly folders.
