LW 9: Pick a Tentative Primary Platform

March 19, 2013 Leave a comment

For my authentic client Alpha Omega Christian Sorority Inc., I would recommend to them the social media platform of Facebook. Even though the Richmond, VA Chapter and the National Chapter already uses Facebook, I believe they can use it more effectively.

An article entitled “How often should you post on your nonprofti’s Facebook Page, and when?” gives some great nuts-and-bolts advice that I would like to share with my client. The three suggestions that I felt catered to my clients needs the most are located below:

1)   post 3-5 times per week

2)   If your status updates get very little “Thumbs UP” or “Comments,” then expand and experiment with different kinds of content. Your work is to find out through a process of trial and error what kind of content is interesting to your supporters.

3)   Studies show that mornings are the best time to post on Facebook, but don’t just post in the mornings and never at the same time each and every day.

While, our sorority seems to be doing well in achieving some coverage, I believe by implementing these three rules they will see their awareness increase.

LSW 7: Analysis of a prominent organization like my client #2

February 26, 2013 1 comment

My authentic client is my lovely sorority Alpha Omega Christian Sorority Incorporated. Thus for this second analysis, I looked at the first 20 post of another sorority known as Sigma Gamma Rho.

In regards to the Standard Edited English or Academic English, I found that SGRho’s first 20 post catered mostly to the Standard Edited English format of writing. That particular form of writing was heavily seen whenever they gave honor and recognition to their famous sorors from the past or sorors from the present who were accomplishing great feats in the entertainment realm such as Kelly Price (the Gospel Singer who recently won a Grammy for Best Songwriter) or the political realm such as Robin Kelly (candidate for former Democrat Jesse Jackson Jr.’s seat in Illinois).  Below is an example of the sorority using Standard Edited English to highlight Robin Kelly’s race for office:

“UPDATE: Soror Robin Kelly has taken the lead in the race for Congress. Soror Kelly is running for former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.’s seat in Illinois.”

Their post is short, precise and to the point, and also does an excellent job of advertising their sorority to potential and current sorors!
