You can be a part of NCPW! Check out these tips for spreading the word, reaching local press and social media – plus tools like social media images and a sample article to personalize and promote NCPW, or your own community event.

Reach out to your community!

  • Plan an event - Host a forum, workshop or seminar in your community and share the tools people need for today's economy. Partner with local organizations such as a police department or library.
  • Write about it - Draft an article and send it to local organizations so they can promote consumer education through their publications.
  • Blog about it - Add a comment about NCPW to blogs you regularly read. Keep your comment brief and include a link to your NCPW event, your website for consumer tips, or consumer.ftc.gov.
  • Spread the word - Encourage your audience to tell friends, family, colleagues and neighbors about NCPW. Word of mouth is powerful!
