Social Media Group’s Plans

A couple of weeks ago, the social media group met to establish our main goal and how we were going to reach that goal. 

Our Goal: To bring the UHCSC up to date using social media tools, enabling them to reach a new audience.  
 
We can accomplish our goal using Facebook, Twitter, a blog, and possibly YouTube.
 
Facebook: Request a different logo, photos, an event calendar from Linda.  Everyone in class needs to join fan page.  

Blog: Plan to spotlight someone each week (1 post); Beckman in charge of designing blog; Form a list of blog ideas.  Madison, Beckman, and Lauren are deciding 1st blog post.

We also came up with a list of blog ideas:

-Spotlighting people
-Inside view from employee
-Contact board members
-Find stories on homelessness throughout the country–link
-Video Clips
-Upload pictures
-Press Releases 
-Guest Writers 
-Volunteer Group-what they experienced, what they did 

Website: See what they have and how it’s organized, and reorganize it.  Make a layout, make it more cohesive.  Katie to meet with Reid and create graphic for class to utilize.

Twitter: Lauren and Madison will be in charge of Tweeting.  Aim to do one tweet a day (school week).  Customize account.  Get anyone who is on Twitter in our class to follow account.

YouTube: Not main focus, but may upload videos throughout semester.

**Important to have class get active on Facebook and Twitter.

Hopefully we will accomplish our goal by the end of the semester!!
