Leverage Your Online Community

Social Media Strategy with the Brand Hub
Thu, Nov 18, 2021
9:00 am – 10:00 am

Learn how to manage, monitor & measure your brand and community online with the Brand Hub at UIUC at Lodgic Everyday Community.

Brands need to continually engage and nurture their fans, followers, customers and enthusiasts if they want to have an effective online presence. Engaging with your community on social media can be a challenge if you don't know how to go about it. Community management can help build a bridge between your brand and its community.

In this workshop we’ll learn

  • how to effectively manage an online community to increase interactions, brand loyalty and exclusive brand experiences, and
  • how to measure the success of your community management experience.

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