The GIS Marketing Team is heavily invested in the community as an extension of the GIS lab. At the beginning of this school year, the GIS Marketing team was developed as a brand new sector of the GIS program. “A lot of the year was trial and error,” said Marketing Team Captain Olivia Hanley. “Our team took what we already knew about social media and marketing and implemented that knowledge into whatever task we were given. With Stew’s assistance and confidence in our team, we eventually acquired ‘clients.’ It is our job to monitor their social media sites and gain as much social media presences as possible.”
The Marketing Team’s work is continuous because new skills are constantly being learned and perfected. Team members must also keep up with the pace of the current social media world. “We have made a great deal of progress since the beginning of the year,” said Olivia. “In the coming years, we plan to grow as a team and further define precise marketing plans for each client we obtain.”
