We want to recognise and showcase all of the amazing work that our clubs & societies do throughout the year for students. That's why we've put together a way for you to promote to students directly. Whether it's an event, achievement or just an opportunity for students to find out more about who you are and what you do - we want to share it!
Through our Club & Soc spotlights, you can apply to promote your society directly on our @glasgowunisrc social media pages via Facebook posts, Instagram takeovers and more.
Some things you need to know:
Why should I promote my club?
Promotion is a great way to increase awareness about your club or society. By promoting your club via the SRC socials you can reach students who may not know what you do, and so gain new members or increase attendance at your events.
What do I need to provide for the spotlight?
You will be asked to provide photos, written descriptions for posts and if you are doing an instagram takeover, tiktok or reel you will need to provide the captioned video(s). You may be able to film and add videos to our story live but this will have to be arranged in advance.
What kind of content can we propose?
You can promote almost anything that your club wants students to know about: events, awards, achievements, campaigns, membership opportunties or just general promotion of how great your club is! If you're unsure don't worry as all content will be reviewed by our Comms Team and you are welcome to ask for advice.
Are there any guidelines?
If you are taking part in an Instagram takeover, you must use the GUSRC takeover sticker on every post. You can find our stickers by searching "GUSRC" in the stickers tab. We can't publish anything inappropriate. No swearing. Everything has to be in line with our policies and code of conduct. We reserve the right to refuse to promote your event and at peak times of our activity such as Welcome Week or Elections we may have to pause club promotion. If you have any questions please let us know.
