In an effort to better communicate with our friends and family we are officially launching a presence on two new social media platforms. Our Facebook presence has been a successful way to promote our school and all of the great things we offer to our students and our community. We understand the importance a social media presence has for all businesses and schools like ours (https://www.salesforce.com/products/commerce-cloud/resources/what-is-ecommerce/ has more information on this.) Now we will also be posting regularly on Instagram and Twitter to reach a larger audience. As these platforms, in particular, are still becoming increasingly popular over time, it’s even more important that we make the most out of the features it has to offer. For example, sites similar to Nitreo, (learn more about nitreo here) enables you to grow your account, reach and brand all through a click of a button. And if this helps us to get more followers in the process, then it’s something that we must do. But we mustn’t forget about how beneficial Facebook can be too. Our Facebook page currently has over 1200 followers and averages over 20,000 views and engagements per month. We are launching additional social platforms to reach a younger audience since our Facebook demographic is heavily weighted in the female from 35-54 age range category. We have also recruited our Yearbook class to help maintain and manage our social media presence in an effort to include the younger demographics.

You can help too! Anytime you see a post from us please take a half a second and like and share it with all of your social media friends as well. This very small task makes a HUGE difference in the analytics of how many people are reached. Each share, like and comment allows the information in the post to increase exponentially in the number of people who actually get to see the information on their accounts. That’s what we’re aiming to do. We’re hoping to spread our school to more people who may not have heard about us. By sharing our posts, that does help our school to grow. We’ve also had additional recommendations to consider looking into SEO companies, like Victorious for example. We’ve been told that investing in SEO could be truly beneficial for our mission to increase our online presence. These companies could use niche sites to build links and draw more visitors to our online platforms. We’re trying to spread the word about our school, so that could be beneficial. We may open up a subscription service for anyone who would like to regularly get updates on what is happening. Those who may be interested in setting that up or have their own service to keep people updated on school events can get more info about how to do that over at fastspring.com.

For now though, we’re just trying to get as many people to share our posts as possible. If you are on social media please like and follow us today.
