When my colleague Jennie Day-Burget and I created our presentation “How Great Visual Media Can Be Created on a Shoestring Budget” for the July 29th event (get more info here) we really wanted to use the headline, “Visual Media for a Social World” instead.
You have to admit, it has a NICE ring to it.
So, social media friends, why didn’t we give our presentation this catchy title?
Because, really, what does that even mean!? It’s cute and all, but you’d be left wondering – what’s in it for me?
Well, that’s exactly how Jennie and I feel about social media.
These tools are at your fingertips – two or three clicks and you’ve got yourself a business page on any social media channel – yet, you have to ask yourself, “what’s in it for me?”
In this case, the “me” is your organization.
Any social media tool should support and enhance your communication strategy. It should not be a stand alone tactic, but part of an overall plan.
You won’t win because of social media but you won’t win without it, so join us on July 29th to learn what visual media tools like Instagram, Pinterest, and Vine have to offer when you can’t afford a video editor or an advertising agency.
We’ll teach you how they fit in your overall communications strategy, how to use them effectively on a shoestring budget, and we’ll look at organizations who are using these platforms wisely.
See you soon!
Jessica and Jennie
