7/3/19 – Wednesday
Today I was able to finish scheduling all the social media posts on our various platforms for the week. When posting on social media, I always try to keep information brief. If I am introducing an infographic, the text below will be no longer than the sentence. The same is for a retweet. To see some of my recent tweets, check out our Twitter account: https://twitter.com/mckudos_chi
Overall, our Twitter page is doing well. Nearly 600 people view our tweets, and some like, retweet, and comment on them. We also have a pretty good link-click rate. Facebook is also doing strong.
As of now, I am completely finished with the social media aspect of outreach. Though it is important to use social media because of its ability to reach a wider audience, I will be moving forward with outreach in our local community. I believe that this face-to-face conversation will bring more profound results because people often have a harder time to “Swipe past” me in real life. My goal by the end of the internship is to influence at least five businesses to join our coalition. Let’s see where this goes!
