“Fiasco” is probably a bit harsh…but the truth is many colleges are afraid of a social media “Fiasco”. You know how it goes…you do a quick cost / benefit analysis where you can’t quantify the benefits but the potential costs seem readily apparent. Management’s decision is simple and easy – Stay Away from Social Media!
I recently interviewed Rachel Reuben, Director of Web Communications at SUNY New Paltz. Rachel has recently gone through a challenging situation with the New Paltz Facebook page, where she had to make some tough decisions. I wanted to share this case study with you in hopes of dispelling some of the fear of Social Media. Here is how one university encountered a situation, dealt with it appropriately and came out ahead.
On Oct 26th, the … Read More »
It’s an interesting time in the world of college recruiting. When I was a prospective student, 15 years ago, things weren’t so crazy. Here is my memory of the college application, recruiting and admissions process:
“Grabbing the mail on my way home from high school, I was excited each day when I received another glossy college brochure. I really enjoyed looking through the mailers and reading about the various colleges. All the kids looked so happy and the campuses were lush and green with ivy-covered red brick buildings, large clock towers and backpacks and bikes everywhere.”
“I narrowed my college choice to two schools because the time, effort and cost to apply to more was prohibitive. After being accepted at both schools, I scheduled my in-person campus tours. Mom, Dad and I hopped in the car, … Read More »
NACAC08 was a great experience. I have been following many people in higher education through various social mediums as well as working with institutions across many states. Meeting these great folks in person has made my relationship with them on social media even stronger!
Does your institution have a Twitter account? Does it identify the author of those tweets? Do you give your admissions counselors a presence on social media? If the answer is no, you may want to talk to us and rethink your strategy.
If your counselors are out traveling, like many this time of year, social media should be central to your overall strategy. Your counselors should have established relationships with various students via social media which can now be reinforced with a face-to-face meeting. On the flip side, as you meet new students and gather their information, you … Read More »
I was recently interviewed by Ben Blanquera, blogger for Columbus Tech Life. Not only is the blog a great write-up but I am very excited about what Ben is doing to spur growth and innovation in the IT and Social Media community in central Ohio.

I had the privilege of interviewing Craig Newmark from Craigslist at the 2.Ohio event in Columbus on Oct 10th. Craig is a humble, soft spoken, no-ego kind of guy…which is amazing considering the proliferation and popularity of his website, Craigslist.com. Even on his business card, his title is “customer service rep. & founder”… (notice which designation is first?) What a lesson for us all.
I hope you enjoy this “real life” interview. This was done on the fly with a very cheap video camera. The questions were not scripted ahead of time nor were Craig’s responses…this is just real convo coming at you via video…enjoy.
Did you stop by the InnoGage booth at NACAC this year? NO??? That’s funny…me neither.
The InnoGage team decided to get a little nuts at NACAC this year. Instead of putting up a booth and waiting for people to walk by, we decided to be the eyes and ears of hundreds of people both at the conference and across the country. The InnoGage crew split up and attended sessions that covered Social Media, Recruiting strategy and other valuable Web2.0-ish information. We listened intently and pushed out bits of valuable information through our mobile devices utilizing twitter. If you’re confused, let me break it down for you.
I walk into a session about “social media in higher ed” and sit down. The Panel begins talking and I begin typing bits of interesting information … Read More »
