April 12: Communications Fundamentals

Online, it’s easy to shout, but hard to be heard. We’ll kick off by covering the fundamentals of online communications, including: defining a SMART goal approach to communications, understanding your unique value proposition, developing content, and inspiring meaningful engagement. By the end of this session you’ll have a better understanding of how to align your goals with what your audience wants.

April 19: Channels and Tools

There are so many channels and tools, and each is useful in slightly different ways. We’ll look at current internet, social media, and tech trends to help you choose the right communications channels for you. We’ll also walk through the best uses of website, email, social media, and mobile content to maximize your communications efforts.

April 26: Developing a Plan and Making it Work

Executing communications can be creative and fun—once you’ve done the planning. We’ll show you how to get organized, develop a robust editorial calendar, and make sure your content is going out at the right time, on the right platform, to the right people. We’ll also cover common online metrics to help you learn whether your communications efforts are working. This week we’ll also cover frequently asked questions about budget and staffing for communications success.
