  8. 8. Recommendations To measure how many users of Exchange are “Work and Travel” participants and how many are external users. Measure the ROI. Create a survey on why students would prefer Exchange to Vkontakte or other social networks Update the interface and using menu of Exchange Integration:create a possibility to share content from Exchange (e.g. photos, blogs) on other social media sites where the user is already registered IEC has to market its own network Exchange. Engage all IEC customers, not just “Work and Travel in USA” students
