Become an advocate for
My Greenboard Explained
Each advocate receives their own My Greenboard website, where they advertise for socially-minded organizations or businesses that they support. Each advocate then joins a team to participate in Community Challenges. One of the goals of the Community Challenges is for advocates to reach out to their personal networks, to raise awareness for participating organizations. To accomplish this goal, each advocate drives traffic to their My Greenboard website and asks viewers to click on their ads. Each click generates a point for both the individual and their team. To encourage visitors to read the content, points are awarded for clicks on content within an ad page, as well as for the click on the page itself. The team with the most points wins the Community Challenge. Participating in a Community Challenge is an excellent way to learn how to advocate in a digital environment (i.e. to learn which strategies work best to drive traffic and encourage clicks).
