Campuses are rethinking their digital presence in response to COVID-19 and placing renewed emphasis on their social media strategy. Students are looking for ways to interact and your website has the potential to be the epicenter of your virtual community. Social media and your website must go beyond information and announcement.
In this webinar we will discuss how to:
- Combat feelings of isolation by bringing people together in authentic meaningful ways.
- Build interactive competitions and contests using social media.
- Effectively reuse and leverage student-generated content.
Join us to hear from the former Director of Admissions at Dixie State University, Brett Schwartz, and hear how their social strategy helped them see a 126% increase in campus visits and a 76% increase in new student applications.
