We will now get started on your course project. First, start by considering your topic. If you have a real product to sell or site to work with, great! If not, consider what you hope to be working on in the future and structure your plan so it will be applicable – a non-profit, a nursing home, a private business, an etsy shop…where do you plan to go?Then research this kind of brand on social media sites and write about the specifics.
Check out some similar pages, see what works and doesn’t, and get your creative juices going.
Next, consider your social media choices. The most popular are sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Instagram, or Yelp. But you should think about your brand and what would work best: where would people look for your brand? What would be helpful to people considering and/or using it? Choose 4 different social media sites to work with for this project.
For this assignment, you’ll be turning in a basic outline of these ideas for your instructor to give you feedback. Since this project is a big piece of your grade, we want to make sure you are going in the right direction!
Your assignment should be at least 2 pages in length and should include:
a brief outline of your topic / brand
some research on similar brands
a list of your 4 social media choices
