Publicity and Marketing
You must set up an event page on the SU website using the online admin tools (all Society/Club execs can access these). The event can then appear on the SU’s list of forthcoming events, and it provides a channel for people to buy their tickets online.
There are plenty of ways that the Students' Union can help you publicise your events.
You can make use of the SU’s Outdoor Screens (located between the Chaplaincy and Warwick Arts Centre) by emailing a poster (1527pixels high by 1068pixels wide – A4 portrait proportions) to email@example.com with details of the dates you would like it to be shown across.
All society and sports club promotional material (flyers, posters, digital screen artwork, etc.)must have the Students’ Union logo displayed on it.
You can set up your own internal article to display to your members when they log in by following these steps:
1) Log into the SU website (www.warwicksu.com) and click the ‘Admin’ (cogs) tab;
2) Select your society under ‘Organisations’ (you must be an exec member to do this);
3) Click on ‘News Admin’ and select ‘Add News Article’;
4) Upload all relevant content (images, event description etc) and save.
Note: please make sure the box marked ‘Allow Non-Members to Read’ has been unticked before you save your news article.
