A blog to go with a series of workshops for museums on social media

One thing … October 7, 2009

At the end of our Whanganui workshop, here’s what participants said was the one thing they’d do next …

‘Visitor contributions are a ‘next step’ for our website – to keep the website fresh and to target younger audiences and families.’

‘A blog is a very flexible tool.  I think we can generate a spark of interest in staff and our community through a blog – using the blog to gather information, stories and feedback from around the country.’

‘Blogging, enhancing our pages on NZMuseums and social networking – using Facebook to connect with our alumni.’

‘Getting a Twitter account – it’s a natural progression from our new e-newsletter.’

‘I can see how we can strengthen the museum – using social media may appeal to a new wave of volunteers.’

‘I’m going to make a case for the museum to be more visible on the larger website because it contributes to the revenue earned by those other services. Maybe I’ll set up a museum blog to highlight our unique stories.’

Thanks to everyone for sharing their stories and expertise!
