I love scavenger hunts. It’s a thrill to race against time and compete for the prize. The team aspect is downright fun and helps people understand the importance of bringing others into the “picture” for a better outcome. When doing this hunt last night our student ministry upped our followers on Instagram by 600!!! Ok…not quite that much, but we did get 25 new followers 🙂 Before you dismiss that, really consider what this means. Extending your reach through social media by doing something like this can capture the one person that “needs” to see your photos.
Our students were the ones posting upwards of 10 photos a piece and tagging our group. Their friends from school, sports teams, work etc. saw these silly pictures, liked them and are now following the posts that I put up weekly informing students of gatherings, summer trip options, Biblical truth, and just funny, silly stuff. After the hunt we had some judges hop online and look at photos…we judged on timestamps, creativity, and those that best followed the directions. I printed off and gave them this picture to the right as an example before giving them the scavenger hunt challenge. Make sure students and those participating in the hunt understand the “MUST HAVES” so that you can leverage the game for the social media win!
- TEAM PHOTO
WHAT DO I HAVE THEM FIND? Here are a few…
- Use your team to build a pyramid.
- What time does our group meet on Wednesdays?
- Give us your best Chuck Norris pose!

Gday admin, I just wanted to give you a quick heads up that your current Website link:
http://lifeofayouthpastor.com/2013/03/28/get-more-followers-on-instragram-do-a-scavenger-hunt/ is being flagged as a possibly
malicious web page in my browser opera. I would highly recommend having somebody look into it.
You could certainly lose a lot of readers due
to this kind of issue. Very best of Luck.
I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the
layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
