How to Draw Attention to Your Library’s Social Media Posts: Webinar (02/16/17) 

Getting eyeballs on your social media content isn't easy or simple any more, and frustration is often inevitable. Learn what people look for in in the flood of online content, and what can actually drive them away. We'll talk about text, visuals, video and, yes, the dreaded but necessary consideration of putting money behind what you do! In this no-holds-barred webinar, we'll focus on the things that can make or break your social media efforts.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Understand content shock and the effect it has on your library’s social media work
  2. Learn best practices for getting social media posts seen
  3. Understand the data that may determine whether or not your library should be paying for reach
