SOU is Social! Next Social Media Marketing Seminar, Tuesday, November 28th, 2-4 pm

Posted on Nov 02 , 2017
As you may recall, the Marketing & Communications Office hosted a seminar last spring to provide attendees with university standards and best practices when it comes to representing SOU on social media.
We had fantastic attendance and overwhelmingly great feedback from those who were able to join us. The most common request we heard from attendees was to learn more about what makes for better content, broader reach, and more meaningful engagement. We listened. Later this month, we're bringing you Social Media Training: Create Content That Connects! Attendees will learn how to: 
  • Create an effective content strategy
  • Create Evergreen content categories -- the key to streamlining your efforts
  • Use a Content Calendar
  • Identify the best content for your audiences 
  • Content creation tips & tricks of the masters  
When: Tuesday, November 28th, 2 - 4 pm
Where: Meese Room, (LIB 305) Hannon Library
The seminar will be led by Gretchen Fox, a local social media marketing expert. Gretchen is the CEO and Founder of MTO Agency [made to order], a full-service digital agency that helps companies grow their businesses using the power of social media. Her work has earned her the Billboard Magazine Top Women in Social, regular press coverage, adn a role as contributing writer for Forbes online.
The seminar is open to all staff and faculty who wish to attend, as well as any student workers who currently use social media to market for SOU programs, clubs, and resource centers (student workers must be registered by an SOU employee). 
We'll be workshopping your social media platforms through the process - so come ready to play and interact with your peers! 
Seating is limited. Space will be reserved on a first come, first serve basis. To sign up, please email me back with your name, department, and primary SOU specific social media handle (or handles.) Please also identify if you or the people you are registering are staff, faculty, or student.
