A Google search for “books about social media” yields around one trillion results.
But Social Works: How #HigherEd Uses #SocialMedia to Raise Money, Build Awareness, Recruit Students, and Get Results is unique. The 25 case studies in Social Works demonstrate that social media has the maturity and reach to be an integral component of campaigns focused on building awareness, recruiting students, engaging alumni and other key audiences, raising money, and accomplishing important goals that matter to a college or university.
The case studies in Social Works will inspire college and university communicators, marketers, web team members, and other staff, offering models and details for highly successful initiatives. And, they will convince presidents and other senior leaders that social media is not just valuable, but essential, to achieving institutional goals. In short, Social Works belongs on the shelves (or on the e‑readers) of college and university staff who want to learn how to get results with social media.
