If you are reading this, it means that you interact with social media.
If you are a landscape architect, you have likely bemoaned the fact that our profession doesn’t have much visibility. (If you are another discipline, you likely also feel the same way.)
I have the secret to raising our visibility, and it involves you and social media.
Social media and online platforms might be the first time where us professionals have some visible control over our destiny and visibility to the general public. We don’t all have to be savvy social media mavens… but we DO have to approach it knowing that it is in our best collective interest to help others around us get the word out there!!
So… get started. Share this post on your social media networks and encourage your network to ‘like’, ‘share’ and ‘retweet’ landscape architecture!!! (*this isn’t intended to be blatant plug… copy and past this post and take credit if you want. Take it. It’s free! Do what you need to do for the good of us all!)
(This post was inspired by me looking at fantastic posts by other professionals, and seeing they have a few likes and no shares… and wanting to prod people to realize that social media visibility is driven by ‘like’, ‘share’ and ‘retweet’.)
