Company website is the “anchor store” of your social media “campaign.”
Prominent link from company homepage to blog - real-time content management.
The company blog - emphasizes personality, the lighter side, opinions, etc. In this space, readers can “experience” your program via informal first-person accounts, photos, links, and real-time announcements of events and activities.
In addition to providing color, commentary and the lighter side, the company blog also serves an important functional role as well, connecting visitors to your company website; your Facebook and Twitter accounts; and online event registrations.
The company blog provides a space for commentary - good and bad - from your colleagues, customers and stakeholders. Testimonials from family members in this space can be authentic, positive and powerful.
The Jaywalker Alumni blog… the audience becomes the author. In this space, alumni connect with one another and talk their experiences in your program. The emphasis is on building relationships among - not with - former clients.
