Effectively Deploying Social Media on Your Campus: Taking the Leap

LIVE Webinar date: February 29th, 2012
Time: 2pm – 3:00pm ET

OVERVIEW:

By now, most institutions have a Facebook presence, but Facebook is just the beginning of the social media landscape. Institutions can harness social media to deploy effective enrollment strategies, develop engaged communities on campus, and ease the transition for the incoming class. There are many social media tools available for free or at little cost to your institution which can be used to leverage your position and increase communication to all of your constituents. In fact there are so many options; it can all be a little daunting. Getting off on the right foot, positioning your social media presence, and establishing a tone early in the process are critical to success. This webinar will focus on getting started with social media using limited resources for the most impact. Facebook, Twitter, and blogs will be central to the discussion, but other social media options will be discussed as well.

Who Should Attend?

This webinar is geared towards registrars, admissions officers, student services, records administrators, enrollment professionals, faculty, communications and marketing officers, and higher education professionals interested in networking tools, including Facebook, Twitter, blogs and other forms of social media.
