Either way, it’s crucial to plainly spell out the dos and don’ts of social media use, by staff and students alike, at your school so you can avoid incidents like this.

Posted by Geoffrey Macadaeg on Tue, Jul 10, 2018

Your school’s social media marketing is not just about creating content and posting it online – it’s also about evaluating your content to see what works and orient them towards your target objectives. Social media marketing should not be based on intuition, but on a continuous process of refinement. You should check if your social media strategy is generating engagement, whether it be in the form of comments, inquiries or site visits. In order to improve your social media content and gain these results, you must be able to measure the degree of success of your previous and current social media content.

5 school social media marketing truths to help you avoid chasing likes

Posted by Geoffrey Macadaeg on Sat, Feb 04, 2017

I’ve been part of a band for quite some time now, and part of my role with the group involves a lot of social media marketing.
