Why Social Media Advertising?

What if you could target your advertising down to a certain zip code, age group, gender, point-of-interest or behavior? What if you could also customize the advertising budget - minimizing your financial risk (if necessary) - while excluding wasted impressions on individuals outside your chosen parameters? You can do all these things with Facebook advertising. Most social media platforms allow for a more targeted promotion audience than other mass media options like television or radio.

Relevance is Not Measured by Youth

I was young once, and thought anyone older than 25 was WAY out of it.  What I didn’t realize was that I was emulating and being influenced by people who were way older than that…but I didn’t put it all together. Of course, when I actually surpassed 25, I actually gave in to the fact that I didn’t know everything, and people who were older than 25 actually had something called experience and knowledge.  I became one of those people.

Learn How to Budget Your Time

Happy 2nd week of the semester! Things are still new, but you may also find yourself starting to settle into your rhythm for Fall semester at Minneapolis Media Institute. One thing that will start to become clear is that you are going to have a lot of different projects and things that need your attention as the semester wears on. One thing that I see students struggle with quite often is time management. I wanted to share some thoughts on what I consider the “time budget” and how to build one.

Fall Semester - Welcome Students!

It’s Fall Semester! Welcome back to all of our returning students and welcome to all of our new students! I’m always so happy to have students in the hallways at Minneapolis Media Institute; it’s quite lonely around here during the semester breaks. As we head in to this new semester, I find myself thinking about resolutions – you know, the New Year’s kind. Yes, New Years is still a few months away but it’s easy to look at each new semester as a fresh start, much like a new year.

Madison Career Chat Friday Field Trip

We were met by Heather Good, Jeff Macheel and Heather Macheel.  Our goal was a grand tour of both the historic Shannon Hall and the brand new Playcircle venues followed up by a sharing of resumes and informal interviews for attendees.  All was accomplished!
