Want to spread the word about your upcoming event?
Use any or all of these steps, depending on your needs. Please remember to ALWAYS begin by contacting your Communications Liaison. Your liaison needs to be "in the know" on your plans so s/he can assist you with promotions along the way.
(Please note: Appalachian cannot promote events that are not directly related to or presented by a campus entity. If you would like to promote an event to our campus community, you can purchase advertising with our university newspaper, The Appalachian or radio station, WASU.)
Step 1: Make sure the event is listed on your own campus unit’s website. Need help? Contact the Communication Liaison for your area.
Step 2: Add the event to the University Calendar by selecting “Submit an event” under “About this Site.” This requires an account. If your area does not already have an account, request an account. Top events are selected by University Communications for promotion on appstate.edu.
Step 4: To generate a news release about your event that will be distributed to local and/or state news media, contact University Communications at 828-262-6156 or firstname.lastname@example.org. All news releases are posted to http://www.news.appstate.edu, and those with images are usually posted to appstate.edu under News.
Step 5: To purchase advertising on campus or in local or regional media, contact your Communications Liaison.
Step 6: For Scala digital signage, University Communications offers assistance. Begin by checking with your Communications Liaison.
Step 7: To distribute mass emails, select your audience and go to the appropriate link:
- Faculty/staff – go to http://announce.appstate.edu.
- Students – no emails are sent but messages can be posted to Appalnet through an online submission form.
- Parents – contact Allison Dodson of Parent and Family Services at email@example.com
- Alumni – contact the Office of Alumni Affairs and Annual Giving at firstname.lastname@example.org.
