The way it was showcased on Social </p><p>Media was very strategic and absolutely real time. Those posts showed highest organic reach of more than </p><p>2100 to 10000. </p><p> Photographs were posted on other social channels with proper optimisation so that they start appearing in </p><p>the Google images search results.</p><p> Student enquiries for their courses started coming in even before the start of any other Ad campaign.</p><p> JU's Facebook page became a very good interactive platform for the students and others to get answers to </p><p>their queries and discuss with other fellow students. </p><p> For some keywords Tumblr blog results were higher in search engine ranks than the rank of JU's official </p><p>website.</p></li><li><p></p><p>Key lessons:</p><p> - Just more likes and followers doesn't ensure a successful social media campaign. Consistent </p><p>effort needs to be put in at regular intervals of time. </p><p>- Posting more and more content is useless because it's not conventional media where one gets more </p><p>reach by publishing various kinds of interesting things 24 hrs.</p><p>- Repeating the content more than once is not a smart move, as mentioned above, it's not like </p><p>conventional media where you can just re-telecast the same thing again and again. </p><p>Mail us to to get full case study and portfolio of JECRC University's Social Media</p></li><li><p>Published by</p><p>Mercury Design, India</p><p> Mercury 2012</p></li></ul>
