    When social media campaign for JECRC University started, its building was in construction phase and there were few

    Strong Social Media: How?

    Most of the people in the target group i.e age group 18-24 years (especially students) are very active on

    facebook, so it is necessary to engage them with the brand effectively.

    The quality of content created and posted on JU's social media channels was very high in terms of creativity

    and branding.

    JECRC Foundation has high standards of education and great environment in college campuses, that's why

    there are a large no. of satisfied students which has automatically helped in Brand Advocacy. 90 % of the

    comments and post responses were positive which helped in the online reputation management also.

    First batch of JU was started in July 2012; the main USPs are promising future as well as the lovely CAMPUS

    of the college.

    JU's Campus is extraordinary in terms of architecture and facilities. The way it was showcased on Social

    Media was very strategic and absolutely real time. Those posts showed highest organic reach of more than

    2100 to 10000.

    Photographs were posted on other social channels with proper optimisation so that they start appearing in

    the Google images search results.

    Student enquiries for their courses started coming in even before the start of any other Ad campaign.

    JU's Facebook page became a very good interactive platform for the students and others to get answers to

    their queries and discuss with other fellow students.

    For some keywords Tumblr blog results were higher in search engine ranks than the rank of JU's official



    Key lessons:

    - Just more likes and followers doesn't ensure a successful social media campaign. Consistent

    effort needs to be put in at regular intervals of time.

    - Posting more and more content is useless because it's not conventional media where one gets more

    reach by publishing various kinds of interesting things 24 hrs.

    - Repeating the content more than once is not a smart move, as mentioned above, it's not like

    conventional media where you can just re-telecast the same thing again and again.
