Social Media Templates for The National Community Survey - Open Participation

How many ways are there to say “please take our survey”? Turns out — a lot! 


We’ve created these templates to help you promote your city’s version of The National Community Survey (The NCS) open participation survey online.  These suggested posts are optimized for platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Nextdoor. We recommend posting a different message each week your survey is open. 


Simply fill in the blanks to personalize the text for your community or organization, then copy and paste into your social media platform. To help increase your reach, encourage staff, councilmembers, community partners and local news outlets to “like” and “share” your social media posts about the survey. 


Pro Tip: Social media posts that have colorful images get more clicks than posts that don’t. Feel free to choose an illustration provided by Polco here, or use your own. Pictures of your community (like skylines or popular downtown areas) are great! You can even tag partners in pictures to remind them to retweet or share. Use images with little to no text.


The more you get the word out about your survey, the more responses you can expect!
