social-mediaTech transfer offices worldwide are seeing the benefit of integrating their promotional efforts for new technologies using a mix of traditional marketing channels, websites, professional networks, and social media platforms.  

But some have compared the social media component of this mix to throwing spaghetti at the wall — lots of effort for little stick. The truth is, social media CAN AND DOES WORK, but it has to be used with skill, concerted effort, continuous assessment, and purposeful iteration. It’s also critical to know which platforms are best suited for your technologies, your core audience, and your ultimate goals. 

That’s why we’ve invited this duo of tech transfer marketing experts with a wealth of social media experience and know how to consult with you in a practical distance learning program:

They will discuss their own successes (including two licensing deals specifically tracked to social media efforts!), as well as reveal current trends and key strategies in social media that can benefit your TTO’s marketing effectiveness. Plus, they’ll warn you on which platforms and strategies to steer clear from. Take a look at the program agenda:

    • Build interest and attendance for your in-person engagements, meetings and seminars
