CHICAGO — Libraries often struggle with creative or effective ideas to promote digital content to their patrons. Common challenges include lacking a budget, not having an in-house marketing department, and trying to reach patrons who are not physically in the library. However, digital content promotion is critical as more and more people consume content through a computer or mobile device.

In this free 60-minute webinar, you will learn the details of promotional campaigns that have worked in two libraries, as well as promotional best practices from a recent nationwide survey of librarians. Our speakers will walk you through 12 keys to digital content promotion success, including:

  • Ways to effectively promote digital content inside the library building
  • Strategies to reach patrons who don’t regularly visit your library
  • Tips to train and motivate staff members to be great spokespersons for your content services
  • Real-world examples of successful marketing efforts from Calabasas Library and the US Army
  • Results of a nationwide survey of best practices promoting digital services in libraries
