Social Media Project Roundup, Fall 2013: Part 1

by noreply@blogger.com (Matthew Wilson) @ UNI Digital Advertising

Every semester, my Digital Advertising students work very hard on a massive project: To develop a professional brand using social media. 

I just finished looking through all of the projects and wanted to take a moment to praise their work and note a few special honors.

The Big Picture

From August 30 - November 15, 2013, my 42 #unidigadv students accomplished the following:
  • Posted a total of 13,184 tweets on Twitter
  • Gained a total of 3,382 followers on Twitter
  • Earned an average score of 45 on Klout
  • Added 3,023 connections on LinkedIn
  • Published 383 blog posts on Blogger
  • Earned 28,625 pageviews from visitors to their blogs
Impressive numbers.  Tweet volume topped my Spring classes by nearly 60% and blog pageviews were up over 20%.  This is a class that has something to say - and has successfully connected with an audience.
 

    TWITTER

    Top 5 Most Voracious Tweeters
    Tweeting is one of those things that seems very easy at first glance - until you do it every day in support of a professional brand.  That's hard work!  Here are the top five #unidigadv Tweeps by Tweet volume:
    1. @flynn_becca - 2,580 Tweets
    2. @kwolthoff - 1,792 Tweets
    3. @ZachHanood - 1,173 Tweets
    4. @Indi_indie_art - 1,018 Tweets
    5. @allyswinton - 794 Tweets
       
    Top 5 Most Added Followers
    If you want to wield influence on Twitter, you need followers.  Here are the students who added the most followers during the semester.
    1. @Indi_indie_art - added 303 followers
    2. @NFLFantasyHub - added 253 followers
    3. @flynn_becca - added 236 followers
    4. @SchoolComes2nd - added 218 followers
    5. @FroYoAndCardio - added 184 followers
       

    KLOUT

    Who has the most Klout?
    Klout is not a perfect measure of social media influence (sometimes it seems to have a mind of its own), but for what it's worth, here are our five most influential class members according to Klout:  

    (Note: Current scores are shown, but students are ranked in the order of their scores as of Nov 15, 2013)
     








    LINKEDIN

    Most Connected on LinkedIn
    When job hunting, who you know is often as important as who you are.  Here are the top five most connected class members on LinkedIn:
    1. Mandy Vrieze - 309 Connections
    2. Adam VanDooren - 276 Connections
    3. Shauna Happel - 219 Connections
    4. Bailey Anderson - 211 Connections
    5. Sarah Ormsby - 202 Connections
    Most Skilled
    Anyone can SAY that they are skilled in "Social Media Marketing", but an endorsed skill on LInkedIn means that another professional has vouched for you to confirm that you know your stuff. These four had the most number of skills that gained endorsements:
    Most Recommended
    These three had the greatest number of recommendations by others on LinkedIn:


    Did you have any favorite Tweeps or Linkedin connections that deserve special mention?  Tell me about why they're awesome in the comments!

    Up next: A post on the best student blogs of Fall semester, 2013.  Stay tuned.

    Social Media Project Roundup, Spring 2015

    by noreply@blogger.com (Matthew Wilson) @ UNI Digital Advertising

    Every semester, my UNI Digital Advertising students work very hard on a massive project: To develop a professional brand based on their personal interests using social media. 

    Unfortunately, after the Spring semester in 2015 I neglected to post a "roundup" article on all of my student work that semester. After multiple requests from students, I am finally posting this now!

    With that said, let's take a moment to praise their work and note a few special honors.

    The Big Picture

    It's always astounding to me what my classes can accomplish in little under three months.  By measuring our activity and engagement on social media, we can quickly evaluate our performance with quantitative metrics.

    • Earned a record-breaking 91,763 pageviews on their blogs

      TWITTER

      Most Prolific

      1. Patricia Zubrod @TrishZubrod - 326 Tweets

      4. Autumn Alitz @autsblog - added 162 followers

      1. Daniel Vorwerk - Klout score: 64
      2. Keevin O'Rourke - Klout score: 60

      LINKEDIN

      Most Connections Gained
      When job hunting, who you know is often as important as who you are.  Here are the class members who gained the most connections on LinkedIn during this project:
      1. Tucker Collins +282 connections
      2. Tony McDermott +169 connections
      3. (tie) Scout Morehouse +158 connections

      Working to build a high quality Linkedin Profile can help you stand out to potential employers.  The following students all had excellent quality profiles:
      Most Recommended
      These three students had the greatest number of recommendations by others on LinkedIn:


      BLOGS

      The real content was being generated on student blogs, where students developed unique and original posts related to their professional brand.  They then attempted to organically attract an audience of readers - a difficult challenge!

      Most Visited Blogs 

      We had EIGHT students who earned over 2,000 pageviews to their blog during the course of the semester - they did a fantastic job attracting and engaging their visitors.  Browse through their blogs and see what they came up with:
      1. Amanda Hackenmiller - The Busyy Beauty - 30,757 pageviews
      2. Andrew McIlleny - True Motorsports Enthusiast - 6,993 pageviews 
      3. Grant Zieser - Life After ISU - 4,283 pageviews
      4. Brittany Bunger - Fashion Gives Back - 1,751 pageviews
      5. Daniel Vorwerk - Coffee Snobs - 2,943 pageviews
      6. Haley Rahe - My Sister's Closet - 2,371 pageviews
      7. Nick Nielsen - Pop Star Social - 2,267 pageviews
      8. Amanda Mcavoy - Iowa Brewtiful - 2,080 pageviews

      Special Honors

      Most Viral Blog Post
      Mandy Hackenmiller - "15 Things I Learned in College" (Record Breaker!)
      Mandy's personal brand was called The Busyy Beauty and focused on health and beauty tips for those on a busy schedule.  Her blog received fairly decent traffic - around 1,000 pageviews - that is, up until April 6, 2015.  Close to the end of the project, she tried something a little different and more personal in nature - a list article about the life lessons she learned in college.  

      Perhaps due to the time of year - as many across the country were preparing to graduate high school or college - Mandy's post went viral. Big time. In the course of seven days following the publication of her blog post, her blog received 29,132 pageviews!

      Second Runner up: 
      Andrew McIlhenny - "4g63 - Best Bang for Buck 4 Cylinder?"
      Andrew blogged all semester about the automotive enthusiast world - but only garnered a few hundred pageviews. The week before the project was due he wrote an lengthy opinion piece on his favorite 4 cylinder engine: the Mitsubishi 4g63. Sharing it with a few Facebook groups of passionate gearheads earned Andrew over 6,500 pageviews in less than a week!

      Best Interviews
      Nick Nielsen - Pop Star Social interviews with Kingsley and Misty Kingma
      Nick landed some serious interviews for his blog on social media and celebrity culture with Youtube personalities Kingsley and Misty Kingma. With millions of subscribers between them, it demonstrates the strength of Nick's personal brand that he was able to earn exclusive personal interviews with them.

      Best Entrepreneur Blogs
      Keevin O'Rourke - The Startup Students
      Michael Caraway - How 'Bout Now (HBN)
      Keevin and Michael are entrepreneurs who are themselves involved in a startup. They both wrote blogs targeting student entrepreneurs to give advice, tips, and helpful perspective to those considering starting their own business as a student. Their blogs were both well-designed and well-written - providing great content that was a pleasure to read.

      Best Advertising Blog
      Taylor Conger - Think Like a Girl
      Taylor wanted to empower women by critically examining "femvertising" - advertising that is targeted to women. Her writeups on women's issues and brands that try (successfully or unsuccessfully) to connect with women through their advertising were both cogent and timely.

        Every semester, my UNI Digital Advertising students work very hard on a massive project: To develop a professional brand based on their personal interests using social media. 

        Let's take a moment to praise their work and note a few special honors.

        The Big Picture

        It's always astounding to me what my classes can accomplish in little under three months.  By measuring our activity and engagement on social media, we can quickly evaluate our performance with quantitative metrics.

        From mid-January through April 18, 2016, my 48 #unidigadv students accomplished the following:
        • Posted a total of 5,656 tweets on Twitter
        • Gained a total of 5,262 followers on Twitter
        • Earned an average score of 40 on Klout
        • Added 3,570 connections on LinkedIn
        • Published 400 blog posts on Blogger or WordPress blogs
        • Earned 41,711 pageviews from 15,829 visitors to their blogs

          TWITTER

          Most Prolific
          Tweeting is one of those things that seems very easy at first glance - until you do it every day in support of a professional brand.  That's hard work!  Here are the top five #unidigadv Tweeps by Tweet volume (I only counted original tweets for this - retweets did not count!):
          1. Rob Bremner @BlockParty1520 - 527 Tweets
          2. Melissa Curtis @SnapsMacsBooks - 270 Tweets
          3. Katelyn Kozak @k_dcreative - 179 Tweets
          4. Jeffery Johnson @VirtualRundown - 160 Tweets
          5. Jimmy Terronez @techwebfun - 154 Tweets

          LINKEDIN

          Most Connections Gained
          When job hunting, who you know is often as important as who you are.  Here are the class members who gained the most connections on LinkedIn during this project:
          1. Jeffery Johnson +851 connections
          2. Trenton Schulte +359 connections
          3. Natalie Siems +239 connections
          4. Mary Kluesner +148 connections
          5. Olivia Ballhagen +142 connections
          Most Overall Connections
          Some students already had a huge network of professional contacts on Linkedin. Here are the most well-connected class members overall:
          1. Jeffery Johnson - 911 connections
          2. Jamal White - 728 connections
          3. Trenton Schulte - 647 connections
          4. Carson Zhou - 536 connections
          5. Alyssa Meeker - 533 connections
          Highest Quality Profiles
          A high quality Linkedin profile can help you stand out to potential employers. The following students had outstanding profiles:
          Most Recommended
          These two students had the greatest number of recommendations by others on LinkedIn:


          BLOGS

          The real content was being generated on student blogs, where students developed unique and original posts related to their professional brand.  They then attempted to organically attract an audience of readers - a difficult challenge!

          Most Visited Blogs 

          We had SIX students who earned over 1,500 pageviews to their blog during the course of the semester - they did a fantastic job attracting and engaging their visitors.  Browse through their blogs and see what they came up with:
          1. Natalie Siems - Textbook Chic - 6,261 pageviews
          2. MC Pham - Vietnamese Cuisine - 2,198 pageviews
          3. Adisa Skrebo - Adisa Glam - 2,081 pageviews
          4. Josh Berendes - Berendes Media - 1,884 pageviews
          5. Lindsay Moore - Moore to Grow - 1,829 pageviews
          6. Teresa Connelly - Run Like A Millennial - 1,539 pageviews

          Special Honors

          Fashion Blogger of the Year
          Natalie Siems - Textbook Chic

          Natalie proved once and for all that fashion blogs rule. Her ambitious fashion blog is the #3 most visited #unidigadv blog of all time!

          Best Advertising Blog
          Carson Zhou - Social China 101
          Carson did an excellent job explaining how Chinese social media marketing works - learning about Weibo and WeChat was definitely fascinating.

          Thespian's Award (TIE)Abbie Takes - Engaging Theatre
          Abbie did an excellent job looking at some of the top theatres in the country and how they are successfully using social media to promote the theatrical arts.

          Zach Champlain - The Modern Backstage
          Zach is really into theatre lighting technology - and he clearly knows a lot about it. His blog seemed very helpful and relevant.


          Most Literate (TIE)
          A fun, readable blog that was authentically passionate about marketing college libraries.

          Ali Henkle - Book 'Em Blog
          If you like reading books - you'll enjoy Ali's blog. It is always good to have a student who gets my Harry Potter jokes.

          Most Tech Savvy
          Lydia Anderson - Histortech
          Lydia revealed a whole new world of connections between archeology, history, and technology that were fascinating and very well-written.

          Funnest Read
          Jimmy Terronez - Tech Web Fun
          I don't know why I liked reading Jimmy's blog - but I really did. Maybe it was the Spongebob animated GIFs. Maybe it was his YouTube video of Jimmy's celebrity impressions. But the fun always made the content more interesting and readable.

          Thanks again for a great semester - if you get nostalgic you can always tune into #unidigadv on Twitter and help the newbies out!

          Did you have a favorite blog this semester that I didn't mention?  Tell me about it in the comments!

            7. Griffin Kuntz - Strong Farms - 1,575 pageviews

            Special Honors

            Most Integrated Brand
            Christian NicholsSpawn Camp Gaming
            Christian's impressive brand (offering news about the video game industry) integrated not only his Twitter profile, but also his custom YouTube channel, his Twitch channel, and a custom Facebook page. The Spawn Camp Gaming site had its own URL and is nicely integrated across a variety of social channels.

            Strongest Writing
            Rhydian TalbotCampus Chripsters
            Rhydian is a master of verbiage, and her blog on Christian Hipsters (Chripsters) offers some of the most playful and well-crafted copy you will read. 

            Best Design
            Dana Potter - Redder
            For a blog about color theory in interactive design, one would expect nothing less than the beautifully crafted design of Redder. It also contained excellent posts on color and UI design.

            Most Resonant Brand
            Griffin Kuntz Strong Farms
            Griffin's authentic understanding of farming and ability to connect and inspire other farmers on Twitter created a strong brand that delivered strong results. Earning over 1,100 Twitter followers also set a new class record for a personal brand. 

            Best Personal Brand Logo
            Jake Sweezy - DJ Sweezy
            It's techno - it's fun.  I love it!


            Best Sports Brand
            Austin Eller - The Money in Sports
            A lot of students like the idea of a sports-related blog, but few can find a truly unique focus that is different than everything else out there. By using his background in Finance to look more closely at the financial aspects of sports, Austin found a niche that is a real winner.

            Most Helevant Blog
            Isak Knivsland - DIY Isak
            "Helevant" is a term I coined that means both helpful and relevant. Sort of like "hella relevant". Isak's blog offered helpful and relevant production tips on sampling beats and creating EDM/hip hop tracks that were excellent for a beginner, often incorporating many original examples embedded in each post as sound clips. This is the type of blog that is sure to earn hundreds (if not thousands) of additional pageviews in the coming years due to organic search traffic.

            Most Poetic Blog
            Aaron SprengelerClasp
            Aaron's blog was a showcase for his poignant animated GIFs (cinemagrams) and thought-provoking creative writing. Note that the load time is a little slow due to the large GIF files.

            Biggest Win
            Morgan Sanders - Print's Future
            When she started her project, Morgan was full of anxiety about her topic. "What do I know about the future of the print industry?", she worried. After putting a lot of work into her Twitter presence and blog, Morgan was contacted by a company that specializes in social media marketing for companies involved in the print industry. They offered her a job based on her work on this project!

            Thanks again for a great semester - if you get nostalgic you can always tune into #unidigadv on Twitter and help the newbies out!
