Follow the 12 speakers of the Higher Ed Social Media Conference on Instagram - Oct 22-Nov 6, 2018

Instagram Story takeovers by higher ed social media pros?

Ever wondered how a typical (or unusual) day in the life of your higher ed social media colleagues looks like?

Well, rejoice as you will be able to follow 12 of your colleagues (including a few rock stars in our industry) throughout one of their day with the HESM18 Conference Instagram Takeovers from October 22 to November 6.

I’m sure you are going to love this new series of Instagram Takeovers featuring the speakers of the 6th Higher Ed Social Media conference on the Higher Ed Experts’ Instagram account.

Every presenter will take over the account to give you a glimpse of his/her life, workplace, best practices and favorite social media advice on the feed, but also via a real-time Instagram Story.

What’s even more exciting this year?

We have 3 speakers (Tim, Erika and Christen) who will take over the Higher Ed Experts’ Instagram account while they attend 2 different conferences: the 2018 HighEdWeb Conference in Sacramento, CA (Oct 22 & 23) and the AMA Symposium for the Marketing of Higher Education (Nov 5).

So, you will get an even greater variety if you follow the HESM18 Speaker Instagram Stories between October 22 and November 6, 2018.

If you don’t want to miss anything, make sure you follow the account now – before you forget 🙂 Five of your colleagues, all students in my 8-week online course on social media marketing for higher ed are doing takeovers as an assignment this week too, so you’ll also be able to cheer them up!
