Course Description: 

This work shop will address the key ways in which transit systems market their services digitally - with customer focused websites and effective use of social media and digital advertising.

A transit agency's website is often the potential customer's first interaction with the agency. It needs to clearly and quickly answer the many questions that a first time rider has, while also meeting the information needs of long time users.  The workshop will address the what needs to be included in a website, how it should be organized for ease of use, and how it can be used as a promotional tool.  It will also address some of the key technical issues involved in website design.

Social media is a tool used by many transit agency's to communicate with riders and promote their         services.  This workshop will address how social media fits into the transit marketing toolbox - what it can and can't do.  The presenter will demonstrate the ways in which social media can be used, discuss how to create content for social media and provide an overview how social media can be used as an advertising tool.

The workshop presenter, Selena Barlow, is the owner of Transit Marketing LLC.  She has worked with more than 100 transit agencies to market their services and will utilize her many years of experience to provide insights and examples that are relevant to New Mexico's transit providers.
