Learn tools and tactics to help you use social media to build your outreach to current and future patrons.

By the end of the 4-week workshop, you will:

  • Set a target audience for your social media efforts
  • Decide what you hope to achieve through social media, who is your core audience, and what channels would reach them most effectively
  • Build a social media project to achieve a specific goal
  • Get prepared to offer a nimble social media response to surprise events that impact your community--whether that’s a tornado or a celebrity visit
  • Create shareable content that can “go viral” beyond your existing followers
