MODULE: Promote Yourselves

Marketing

Using Marketing and Communication tools can help your society ensure new members join and take part in your activities. It can also help you to reach out to other societies and collaborate on projects together!

Facebook! Twitter and Instagram!

Social media is a great platform for advertising and promoting.

It’s a great way to spread awareness of your activities and your society as a whole.

 

We have put together some tips and advice for each of the main 3 social media platforms; Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to help you get started.


Please remember that you are representing Brighton Students’ Union and all interactions with both students and non-students must remain professional and polite.

 

Social Media Training

We can provide you with training opportunities through Brighton Students’ Union. Our Marketing and Communications team host a number of sessions throughout the year that range in levels of knowledge surrounding social media. Examples of this training include: Social Media for Beginners, How to get the best engagement on Social Media and Analytics and Reporting: is your social media working for you?

To receive this training contact Claire at c.cross2@brighton.ac.uk to register your interest.

Using Our Brand

You are part of Brighton Students’ Union! Let people know! There are many positive reasons in doing this for you and your society, such as official recognition, so we therefore ask that you state that you are part of Brighton SU in all promotional material.

There are a few things when doing this to remember:

  • We are Brighton Students’ Union (not the university) please use our name Brighton SU (BSU). Please do not use ‘UOB’ or ‘University of Brighton’ as we do not have rights to use them.

  • Please put our logo on all marketing materials. Please use the standard teal logo where possible, or one of our alternative logos specified in our brand guidelines.

  • Please do not:

    • Distort the logo or chance it’s dimensions
    • Edit the logo
