For many schools, the viewership of their social media pages rivals that of their website. It’s vitally important to have a social media presence that supports your institution’s brand through actively engaging and controlled content. We offer a two-pronged method to improved social media metrics; first, we engage in thorough social listening to audit and report our findings. This process enables improved awareness and strategic steps forward.
Secondly, we train staff at your institution to manage any host of platforms through best practices and professionalism. Training involves reducing or increasing accounts, developing a strategy for variable audiences, and creating a base content calendar for the year. Our thorough approach to this important element of institutional branding has shown an explosion of social media visits and engagement for our client-partners.
