How to understand user behaviour to inform content creation

Presented by Azeem Ahmad, Digital Marketing Manager, Staffordshire University

In this talk, Azeem will run through the basics of measuring user behaviour on site, allowing you to gain understanding of how simple this is to put in place. You'll leave with actionable insights about your own audience and what they consume, enabling you to create content that better serves them.

Why social media is important for academics and research

Presented by Dan Marrable, Director, 448 Studio and Carla Banks, Global Reputation Manager, Lancaster University

In this talk, Dan and Carla will reflect on the work they've been undertaking with research groups at Lancaster University for the past year and a half. They will discuss the steps needed to build an engaged community of academics on social media within your university, and why it’s important for those undertaking research to have a strong grasp of it. They will also share useful insight on utilising social media for recruitment, creating a channel, content and tone of voice, reporting, and understanding analytics to make informed strategic decisions.
