RESEARCH YOUR AUDIENCEAt meetingsBefore and after worshipDuring eventsProvide an incentive to return; win a surprise basket, a $10 card to Starbucks, etc.Make it anonymous if preferable
Growth potential for organization? Attract one or more of our constituencies?Reasonable ROI in advancing our goals and strategies?Fit our needs…Move goals and org. forward? Or just creating. posting to say we’ve created, posted, and hope somebody out there reacts?As professionals, judgment call about what’s worth it and not. So many hours in day.
Labor-intensive. Before you leap into a new media platform –ANY new platform – you have to consider the time, the learning curve, the maintenance required.Can you launch without detracting from/interfering with your current set of comm tools?Are you and your org. willing to experiment with these and, if they’re not enough bang for the buck, let them go?

Might include brief instructions “scan me with your smartphone” or where they can get scanner appsNeed strong contrast work properly, although can get in color.Larger codes scan better. 1 x 1 inch with a little white space surrounding is as small as you want to go.Always test your code to make sure works.DON”T place in the fold of a print publication, where user has to hold it flat and open to get a good scan.Adding text helps you identify and store, also informs your audience – even if it’s placed inside a story or feature. Use your own judgment about whether you need need captions, but I find them helpful.
Use QR Codes to augment rather than tell a story, so that not having the capability or inclination to use it won’t detract from main message.You’re not limited to just one code.

Integrating traditional and new media
Integrating Traditional and New Media by Ellen Mathia
•Checking and choosing•Making it fit •Directing the show or coordinating and adjusting
Not just integration of processes......Integrated Marketing/Communications requires teamwork & planning between: – academic units and Institutional Relations – Institutional Relations and Administration – Administration and academic units
Traditional isolated approach MEDIA RELATIONS – Single news releases at unit request (reactive) – Information used once; dead-end “hits” – Blanket mailings – Scant follow-up or media cultivation – Insufficient analysis of media trends and needs – No interactive national/regional placement tools – Lacks university objectives as guide
Traditional isolated approach PUBLICATIONS – “Walk-in” requests of units, faculty – Newsletters, internal & novelty items – Centralization of function vs. focus – Alumni, recruitment functions – Lacking strategic direction umbrella

While Facebook is still astrong presence, for manyyouth and young adults, it nolonger dominates the socialmedia network……In fact,Tumblr has overtakenFacebook as the primarysocial network for peopleages 13 to 25.
In-house researchSample survey of your constituentsDo you use social media for your business?Do you use social media to connect to family andfriends?Have you made new friends on social media?Do you have a Facebook account? Twitter? LinkedIn? Pinterest? Other?Do you produce your own blog?Do you read the (organization) e-newsletter?Do you visit our (organization) website?
Before you leap into a new platform, consider:Growth potential?ROI: Worth investment of time,resources, laborFit our needs, culture, mission, goals?Help tell our story (and listen!) better?
“Kill the platform before it kills you”CAN you maintain and sustain?Will it demand all your time, thenstarve for your attention?Will your already successful toolslanguish?
