Social Shorts Cymru – Engaging Teachers Through Social Media
Teachers are renowned stationery lovers and – whether it’s whiteboard markers, pencils for the pupils or coloured fineliners for marking – they go through A LOT of it. So of course, they are a key target audience for international stationery brand STAEDTLER.
Equinox has been working with STAEDTLER since 2012, and during that time the team has created, nurtured and grown STAEDTLER Teachers’ Club – a free platform for primary school teachers to find and access free product samples, curriculum-linked teaching resources and fun competitions.
Teachers’ Club operates across Facebook and Twitter and during 2016, the pages reached more than 8m users and achieved over 450k engagements – a feat which saw Equinox pick up an Award for the ‘Best Use of Social Media’ at last year’s PRide Cymru Awards.
Sophie Harris, Account Manager and Ruth Adams, Account Executive at Equinox, will lead the session, sharing information on how they use social media to engage teachers, recruit new members and ultimately drive education sector product sales for STAEDTLER.
