MAKE A MARKETING PLAN

You need to get the word out to the campus community – so you should consider all of your options and make a plan. Building a marketing plan for your message means determining the audience you want to reach and the most effective means of reaching that audience. There are many options for outreach to our campus community.

We are here to help!  If you would like assistance building a marketing plan for your event, program, or announcement, please contact admfin@ucf.edu or 407-823-3094.

Mass (Broadcast) emails are targeted to the campus, but reach only a small portion and may not be the most effective method of accomplishing your goal. Mass emails are limited to essential notices impacting every recipient and must comply with university policy 4-006.

We recommend you review the below options and keep an internal list of potentially relevant methods of distributing information that you regularly communicate. Please ensure that any requests to distribute information are intentional and targeted to a relevant audience (meaning that each member of the distribution group needs this information).
