Want some additional help for your organization's social media?  

The Comm397R -Social Media Practicum class sends a student or group of students to organizations on and off campus for a semester to help with social media needs.  

They offer training, tools and assistance necessary to organize, create, and manage a social media campaign across various platforms. Each student provides free assistance for 5 hours per week.  

If you have someone already working on social media for you, make sure they know about the Comm397R class.

Practicum students can help you by:

  • Creating and/or managing Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, or Twitter accounts. 
  • Creating and implementing a media strategy. 
  • Creating an editorial calendar and content based on your strategy. 
  • Responding to comments and posts. 
  • Creating cross-promotions across different media platforms. 
  • Building a strong relationship with your desired audience while increasing your followers and reach.  

For campus departments they also:

  • Apply the BYU-Idaho social media guidelines.
  • Promote your platforms and messages with other BYU-Idaho social media groups.
