Social Media and your school community - Denis Masseni
Why is it that the world’s gone social media mad, adopted smart phones in huge numbers, shopping online as if that’s what’s always been, yet schools continue to connect with parents in ways that have been around possibly for decades? Are you losing your parents?
Delivering the same message but doing so in a different context is key. In this world of information obesity and time poor parents chopping up your content and delivering it through multiple formats will heighten engagement and also pay respect to the needs of your audience. And all of this is so easy to do.
Do you know that 75% of Mums are on Facebook?
The digital world provides us with so many wonderful tracking and measurement tools; you don’t need to guess any longer. Do you know how many people read your last school newsletter? Modern analytics can tell you how many opened your newsletter, which article was read most and those not at all, along with who read it, even down to the time of day.
Did you know that you can write one article and have it published automatically to a blog, facebook, twitter and even sms?
If building a strong school community is on your to-do list, come along on August 18 to learn how..
