Make sure your title sums up exactly what your notice is about and sparks people's interest.
Be original (don't title it the same as a dozen other notices), but don't 'bury the lead'. At a glance people should be able to know what the notice is generally about, and be inspired to read the details.
Make sure your notice shows off your personality, or the personality of your organisation. You don't have to be the brightest star in the room, just be yourself (that's much more interesting).
Clear description and calls to action
If your notice is asking people to do something (call to confirm, rent a room, hire you, come to your garage sale, find that puppy!) be specific and clear about what steps you want them to take. Call you? Email you? Post to your community engine profile? Spell it out.
A good strong image will make your Notice come to life. People are natural storytellers and a picture tells a thousand words. An awesome, inspiring, interesting image will make people curious about the story behind the notice.
Don't forget, all images must be your own, or you must be allowed to use them (it's against our terms to upload images that infringe someone else's copyrights).
Clear contact details
If you are selling something, giving something away, offering your services, or posting any kind of notice that means a viewer will need to contact you, make sure that you have clearly stated your contact details. Depending on your privacy settings, those who click on your notice and are taken to your profile page might not be able to see all your information, so make sure you put your preferred point of contact on there for people to follow up with.
Tell us more about you
Finally, people often want to know more about the person – or organisation – that posted the notice.
Make sure you've filled out your community engine profile with a picture and a little something about who you are and where you fit in your local communities.
The more people get to know you, the more they'll be interested in what's going on in your world (and if you're asking them to buy or give something, the more likely they are to trust you).
Can I see who is reading and sharing my notice?
When you click on your notice you'll see who has commented or recommended it.
Over time we hope to be able to bring you more helpful details about who is reading, sharing and acting on your notices.
Let us know what type of information you would like and we'll make sure we consider it.
