Facebook for my Women in Aviation Mini-Museum Project

Next year, I'm going to be putting a bit of my women in aviation collection into an exhibit at the Laramie County Public Library, here in Cheyenne. I've got a year to get all the pieces mounted properly for exhibit. Of course once I get the exhibits all ready to go, I want to share them with other people, and what I'm thinking of is creating a Mini Museum - renting a store front here in town and putting the collection on display.

I'm doing research into how I can popularize this idea and get people to come to Cheyenne to see the museum. (Of course, they'd come here for other reasons first - nice as I hope my mini-museum will be I seriously doubt if someone in Florida will travel to Cheyenne just to see it!)

Publicity is so important - if no one knows about it, no one will come.

I've been looking at putting bits of it online as a virtual museum, and putting links to the various social media on each page, so that if someone on Facebook visits a page and likes it, they can "share" it with their entire network - which of course would be a big win.

So I've been looking into how much Facebook shares cost.  Shares as in "page shares" - not stock shares! There are businesses that can do this for you - but of course getting Facebook shares cost money. So if you've got a business that you're trying to popularize, check out such websites as and see what they can do for you.

Meantime, I've got to start doing some serious work on my mini- museum idea!
