If you have a newsletter, utility insert or bulletin board, you can catch folks while they aren’t focused on their screens.


Think about places where people gather or what printed materials you already mail out.

  • Add a filler sheet or a printed message in utility bills.

  • Hang posters or notices at public buildings such as libraries, service centers and City Hall.

  • Hand out fliers at events, libraries, service centers and City Hall.

  • Add a scrolling message on the municipality’s TV channel.

  • Share posters and fliers with other public agencies, businesses and non-governmental partners that may be willing to spread the word.


Design something eye-catching!

  • Use images if you have space.

  • Use a large-enough font if it is going on a wall.

  • Have a call-out box if it is inserted in a newsletter or bill.

  • Be clear and to the point. 

  • Make the URL prominent, and be sure people know what to do.
