What is social media?
Websites that empower users to share information, pictures and more are social media. Popular examples include Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and WordPress.
Working with the Outreach and Engagement Office at USI we continually develop professional training for you and your staff.
See what we are offering this fall…
Social Media Policy
A company that decides not to address social media has already chosen a policy – the policy of not having a voice in new media.
Their employees, their competitors, and their customers are already engaged in social media.
Developing your social media policy builds your brand and empowers your employees. You give your customers a voice and build a stronger relationship with them.

We offer training, both individual and group, so you can learn how to make the best use of social media.

Dana jump-started our social media presence. She took the time to understand our business history, our industry and our overall marketing goals. She worked with us to get us set up on the most popular social media platforms, provided direction and guidance on posting strategies, and taught us how to leverage our team members’ abilities to utilize the different platforms. She provided a good deal of necessary hand-holding in the beginning as she trained us and empowered us to connect with our clients, vendors and friends online in a meaningful and mutually beneficial way. –Casey Valiant, Creative Director at AmeriStamp SIGN-A-Rama
