During graduation week, thousands of visitors come to the Forty Acres. As you wander the campus, the Landmarks program is all around. More than 30 modern and contempary works are on display. Take some time to visit the collection.
An interactive map and audio tour are also featured on the university’s official iPhone app.
Landmarks: Art on the Forty Acres
As social media coordinator for UT Austin, I'm always looking for content that is now - in the moment - and Longhorn-centric. If I make good use of this, Longhorns on Facebook (and other social) usually will take care of sharing our posts. For special occasions, like Mother's Day, I will look for content I can share but I do not always try to "capitalize" on holiday or special day moments. I couldn't resist wishing mothers a great day though.
FTD, and I'm sure other florists, sell burnt orange and white roses. I found the image (below) and added the standard greeting and a hashtag. Surprisingly (to me), the post did quite well, reaching nearly 300,000 people and counting, liked 6,700-plus times, shared more than 2,750 times and 108 comments (as of this writing). What was even more surprising was that 70 percent of the people who saw the post was viral - the number of people who saw the post in a story from a friend. Can we dare say viral?! Shareable media, in my opinion, not social media wins the day. Your brand message is spread and followers added when it's shared, not when people reply to the brand. Find your content that's immediately receiving likes, comments, and shares...the microviral content. Why did your audience like it? How can you replicate it with new content?
Stephanie and I got married on April 13 at 219West in downtown Austin, Texas. We had some great vendors working with us.
The Cake Plate made our cakes. And my groom's cake is headed to Kerbey Lane menus, too!
219West was the perfect venue for us. We got married on the rooftop and had our reception downstairs. It was wonderful. The 219West team was excellent and the food was great (so I was told!). We'd recommend them many times over.
Our photographer was Brian Fitzsimmons. Austinites might know him as the Austin Fit Magazine photographer. Brian does amazing work and is a pleasure to work with. Steph used Brian before our wedding for some professional photos and those turned out great, too.
And GoPro helped us with this.
After I proposed to my wife Stephanie, I knew we were going to have something awesome added to the wedding. And Steph didn't disappoint. She asked me if it was OK to have a GoPro Hero3 camera added to her wedding bouquet. How could I say no?!
This was the result, our wedding video filmed on a GoPro.
