The Science of Library Marketing: Why Now is the Perfect Time to Experiment with Your Library Promotions (And How to Do It)
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Eastern
Event Description
It goes without saying that libraries navigated a lifetime worth of challenges in the pandemic. Those challenges taught us an important lesson: we can do important things! As we emerge from the pandemic, now is the best time to ask exciting questions about your library promotions. What worked? What didn’t? What might work now that didn’t work in the past? In this session, you’ll have a chance to think like a library marketing scientist. Learn how to form a hypothesis, set up your experiments, record and analyze your results, and tie all of this to your marketing goals. Leave with the knowledge and inspiration to find new ways to get people to use your library.  

Learning Objectives:
  • How to use your library's current promotional metrics to spot trends and create experiments that can further your library's overall strategic goals.  
  •  A list of marketing factors to test.  
  •  A list of metrics every library marketer needs to track and analyze.  
  • How to make marketing experimentation a consistent (and fun!) part of your job.
