Presented by Ma’ayan Plaut, Social Media Coordinator at Oberlin College, and Mallory Wood, Director of Marketing at mStoner in the Marketing, Content, and Social Strategy Track at HighEdWeb 2012.

Do you manage your institution’s social media presence? Ever wished you could clone yourself in order to get through your to-do list? Have you even considered stealing Hermione’s Time-Turner necklace? If so, this session is for you.

Managing social media can be a very time consuming process if you don’t have the right strategies in place. For many marketers, admission counselors and alumni-relations officers, the management of department or institutional social media properties is an add-on to an already full plate. We’ll show you that you don’t have to add hours to your day to effectively manage your new social media responsibilities.

Sharing case studies and best practices from the industry, this session will help you increase your day-to-day efficiency, develop a social media content strategy at your institution and determine which tools to focus on based on your goals and resources.
