Audience Analysis: People, Power & Influence

Social Media Strategy with the Brand Hub
Thursday, October 28, 2021
9:00 am – 10:00 am

Understand the finer points of analyzing your audience with the Brand Hub at UIUC and Lodgic Everyday Community.

Defining an audience, determining the appropriate messaging, and identifying the right communication channels always was, and still is, a critical step when crafting any marketing strategy. There is no longer one channel that reaches everyone and you can no longer rely on only one message to be shared to all audiences. Deploying a successful social media strategy, requires an intimate understanding of the niche audiences you are trying to reach. But where to start?

In this workshop we’ll learn

  • how to conduct a demographic audience analysis using research and user analytics,
  • how to relate communication messages to your targeted audience's values, needs, and interest;
  • and how to unlock the power of influence within your audience.

This workshop is brought to you in partnership with the Brand Hub, Lodgic Everyday Community, and The Urbana Free Library.
