Description

The explosion of social media has drastically changed the way that prospective undergraduates and their parents (as well as the rest of the world) see your school. While you think you're controlling the message through your "official" communications, people are out there uploading not-so-flattering videos, commenting on "gossip boards," and swapping stories on sites like Facebook and MySpace. It's easy to feel that your school's brand is out of your control.

What do you do? How do you manage your institution's brand and reputation when you can't control the conversation? This presentation examines where prospects are going to find out about your institution, what they're saying, and how memes get made and spread. Along the way you'll get some practical advice and case studies about what others are doing to join in the conversation and leverage social media for recruitment and retention.

Out of control You can’t control this. Period. Get over it. It’s about what you say about yourself and what they say about you. Cognitive Dissonance is bad...unless you’re doing it on purpose. The good news/bad news: more media = less attention Don’t think “campaign,” think “play” (or, if you have to talk to your boss, call it “testing” or “experimenting”)

There’s nowhere to hide Memes travel...or not Honesty will out Your brand is your experience....like it or not Forget about “crafting” anything Embrace your detractors BE HONEST

Your brand is your experience....like it or not

Forget about “crafting” anything

Embrace your detractors

BE HONEST

The brand doesn’t make the institution, the institution makes the brand.

“ Brand” is a collaboration

Dealing With It

Lessons of Generation TXT Things have changed. Drastically. New technology, new mindset. Show, don’t tell. More information is better...they’re going to find it out anyway. Print still matters...for different reasons than you think Accountability is a must. Authenticity is a given. “Three Under a Tree” ain’t gonna work anymore. It’s about the experience. Think individuals, not audiences
