Marketing

Whether you’re publicizing a specific event or just seeking new members, marketing your organization is crucial for success. The following resources may help you.

Engage Calendar

Engage features a community calendar, where some events can be shared with all users. If you’re having a large-scale event or one that is open to the whole campus, we can show it on the calendar. Simply create the event in Engage, and check the “Share on Student Organizations Calendar” box before you submit. We will review these requests, and if it meets the guidelines it will be shared with everyone!

If your organization is on Twitter, tweet your events @MizzouORG! We regularly look for events to feature and promote.
