Social Media Marketing for your Department

748
-1

Published on

While department websites have become commonplace, few agencies are using social media tools to promote their organization and even fewer are doing it effectively. This program will show you how to implement a P.I.E.R.S. marketing strategy integrating old, new and social media. In addition you’ll learn what policies and guides to use to keep your social media use on target and out of hot water and how to engage, accelerate and analyze your use of social media to ensure that you’re getting enough bang for your buck. Most importantly this program will show how your Department can and must leverage Social Media channels to reach the Agents of Change in your community that will take your Social Media message and help your agency engage community support, raise funds, promote life safety education, and improve service delivery.
