Introduction to Crisis Management

The first value-add we are giving you as a thank you for joining our SAS Marketers Network is an Introduction to Crisis Management.

In the recent months schools, colleges and universities have been rocked with several movements where discussions about institutions and their staff have been taking place in highly public spaces, mainly on social media, mainly to the detriment to the institution.

Unfortunately this is most likely to become to the norm going forward which is why it is critical that you have a crisis plan in place and that you have the right tools to manage your brand’s reputation, especially online.

Below we have provided two free resources for you to download to sample what we provide our network on an ongoing basis along with platform recommendations to manage your online reputation.
