This is my pitch to NYU (New York University) Global to have them hire me to revamp their social media platform into a more interactive communication amongst students and staff

End result? The study abroad department declined my help and would prefer to go it alone.

  14. WHAT WILL I DO FOR YOU?
  15. 1 ramp up the social platform
  16. THIS AND O U’LL NEED HAT Y ONE OF T TH IS, B UT N • Before switching off NYU Global’s Twitter, it had 800+ followers - let’s use it to chat with Millennials • The YouTube channel has 30 000+ views - let’s make more videos and show why we’re #1 • Freshman year abroad kids have many questions - let’s answer them on social and visual networks
  17. Let’s have conversations Let’s make all your social networks more visible, instead of just AND Facebook
  18. 2 show what study abroad is like
  19. AR FROM LET’ S HE TUDE NT S T HE S • Currently, there are no student perspectives on the NYU Global website • But more students are keeping blogs of their time abroad - let’s spotlight them and their adventures • After all, peers look to one another for guidance when it comes to making decisions
  20. AND Let’s not just talk about the benefits of studying abroad, And let’s make it but rather, let’s illustrate who easily accessible and is benefiting and how. visible
  21. 3 re-design those bland guides
  22. IN 200 0... ERE COOL TH EY W 2011 WE’R E IN BUT • They’re not particularly Google indexing friendly - let’s turn them into SlideShare presentations instead • Some are outdated - e.g. NYU in Paris no longer partners with American Univeristy in Paris • Layouts need work - let’s revamp them completely
  23. Looks kind of dense, doesn’t it? I’m sure the information is great, but if we want to save some paper, let’s be brief. And let’s make it more for web as opposed to a cross between a heavy computer file and thick print-out.
  24. i’m convincing, aren’t i?
  25. lucky for you, i’m easy to find
