Social media is an essential marketing tool for businesses and non-profits. But, with changing customer needs, technology, and platforms, it can be challenging to create a sustainable strategy that increases sales, customer traffic, and donations.

Unique to this course are hands-on activities in each session and the interactive workbook. Additionally, the course structure is such that you receive information in one session, then practical application in the following session. Between sessions, we invite you to work on an independent project of your choice, leveraging the week’s lessons, and receive feedback on your progress from the instructor and other class members.

  • Foundational information about social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin, and YouTube
  • Important information on how often to post, when to post, image sizes, and definitions of social media terms
  • Suggestions and templates for building your social media strategy, content calendar, and goal tracking
  • Understanding the customer and donor journey and how it affects the content you share
  • How to decode social media analytics (Note: We will focus on platform statistics with only a high-level approach to Google Analytics. This is not a Google Analytics session.)
  • Understand the importance of conducting a social media audit and engaging with your audience.
  • Answers to your pressing social media questions

Developing Video for Marketing and Branded Content (WIT325-66)


with Manx Magyar

Calendar Apr 12, 2021 at 6 pm, runs for 3 weeks

Video is paving the way for promotion; it's been that way for years and it’s only growing more prevalent. Take advantage of modern forms of self-distribution by becoming your own production company - starting today!

This course will help guide students in developing media (specifically video) for marketing and branded content. Students will learn to utilize concepts in cinema and high-end commercials and apply them to smaller businesses or organizations. The course will go over a wide range of equipment: camera, audio, lighting, etc. in varying capacities and degrees of accessibility.

By the end of the course, students should have a fully realized promo video about their business or organization, as well as the confidence to continue creating future content. The assignments for each class will ultimately build to a final video, a classic website welcome video/“about us” video, about a minute in length. This will also be a great crash course in understanding the production process from the content creator’s background, allowing you as a client to communicate your own ideas to a professional producer and understand the work process. Having prerequisite knowledge and skills is a huge advantage, but just learning about the entire process is still beneficial for an absolute beginner.

This course is offered in a remote learning capacity. Zoom guidance and instructions will be provided in advance of the first session.
