Building the Conversation: Social Media Strategies for the Scholarly Community

Justin Lauzon, Marketing Coordinator, University of Toronto Press

In many fields social media has become an invaluable part of all successful marketing strategies. With the ability to connect with large audiences in real time, an active online presence is essential for engaging readers, nurturing interactions and relationships via social media, and building an audience. Although they may seem worlds apart, social media and academia are actually partners in facilitating important conversations online, and there are a few key techniques needed to accomplish this. Join Justin Lauzon, Marketing Coordinator at the University of Toronto Press, as he examines the challenges facing academic publishers, scholarly journals, and authors in directly reaching audiences excited about new research. Learn how to effectively use a small budget and few staff, how to discover what platforms are right for you, and how to render even complex subjects into a single tweet. The session will conclude with an opportunity for questions and discussion.
