  • Social web callouts
  • Blogging, facebook, twitter.Announcing job/internship opportunities.
  • Social web callouts + embeds
  • The first office to drink the kool aid.Natural fit for the social web.Doing a great job.Live tweeting events, sharing photos.Proving there is stuff to do (even on weekends)
  • Social web callouts and embeds
  • Content not as fun as Student Life, unless they change how they communicate it.Build interest, appeal to students. Become more welcoming. Change perceptions.
  • She’s an adult and is aware of her financial responsibilities.Bio and background show a love for penguins.Ben Matlock + Jessica Fletcher = a child who’d love being a community manager.She wants to be heard.
  • Thanks Cookie the Penguin! --
  • 1st step.Get comfortable.Take it in.Learn a lot.
  • Next stage is to find your voice.Better than being silent, begin to see value.Broadcasting.
  • Something magical happens.Conversations begin.Relationships are formed and nurtured.People hand out hors d’oeuvres!
  • Once you learn the tool. It will either change or go away.Can’t be happy to be on the top step, the social web is an escalator.Location-based services are the current future (for now). Changing daily. Facebook bought Gowalla. Foursquare is growing. Google owns SCVNGR.Tomorrow it will all change, change with it.
  • We can win. We’re the perfect size. Social is hard to scale.Need to invest the time. Take the risks.Creation of my position is great first step… but remember, it’s an escalator.
  • Know your community. Know what works.UW-Madison strives for “intelligent goofiness”I call that smart humor = being witty.Our community is respectful. We’ve been in the news, they haven’t heckled.Remember: Without our community, it’s pointless.
  • Community = awesome
  • Packers selling a $2 piece of paper for $250.THAT doesn’t happen overnight. They have a strong community built over time.Do good.Create memories.Strengthen relationships.They’ll be there for you when you need them.Example: Fancy new car for FREE* = #MBteamS victory in the Tweet Race -- *FREE took a lot of community building, engaging, loving, sharing, relating, caring…
  • Students don’t see our silos, they see us.We are ONE to them. Not a shattered organization. Admissions requires happy alumni to spread love on facebook to prospectives or around the campfire up north (some people call it word of mouth). Advancement needs a great college experience to make the “ask” call easier (and more effective).A parking ticket CAN ruin a relationship. Especially a weak relationship. We must nurture and strengthen relationships.Not just prospective students, but prospective faculty/staff.Come together, organize our efforts, share successes and failures. Grow stronger.Secret facebook group of faculty/staff/students to learn and share the secrets of the social web. We need to incentivize to build momentum, must engage and prove value (every step of the way) to grow our relationships.It takes a village. It takes a campus.
