We’ve launched new interactive Twitter guidance for Clubs

Twitter can be a great way for Clubs to share their latest updates and stories. It makes connecting with individuals and other clubs who share their interests and passions much easier! To help clubs get started on Twitter we have developed a new interactive Twitter user guide. Our interactive guide will show clubs how to set up and use a Twitter account, start following accounts they are interested in, and give clubs a tour of all the main features. Please include @ClubMatters in your tweet to let us know how you are getting on!

Please like our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/sportenglandclubmatters) and share our posts. If you would like any bespoke content for your social media, please get in touch with us.

Free promotion available for your clubs

The ‘Catch up with clubs’ section of the Club Matters website are full of real-life stories from clubs and our new Club Matters You Tube channel also hosts a range of videos from clubs, CSPs and Club Matters all about how and why to access the resources.  Each of these shows real life clubs sharing their experiences of Club Matters and how it has helped them to improve their club – we also have some regular bloggers who share their Club Matters story. We are always keen to hear how clubs are using Club Matters and the impact on their development. If you would be interested in sharing your club’s success stories then do get in touch at clubmatters@sportengland.org and your clubs could be featuring on the Club Matters website to gain some free promotion.

Content for your newsletters This month we have included a short story on our new interactive Twitter guidance, alongside a story on how clubs can get started on their Marketing Strategy.
