Trellis Social


Trellis Social enables social media managers to share content across channels effectively, so the quality content generated across the university is served to larger, more engaged audiences. Furthermore, marketers will have one tool to engage with audiences across all social media platforms, as well as monitor and track their campaigns for real-time performance analysis. They will also be able to establish social listening dashboards, allowing them to see what's being said online, across multiple verticals, about key departments and stakeholders.

Who Will This Benefit?

Trellis Social will serve marketing and communications teams across the university. At product launch, up to 400 social channels will be selected to utilize the platform to manage the publishing and engagement of social media posts. Once these channels have been established inside the tool, additional users who manage accounts outside of the tool will be provided access to the platform so they can share content with previously provisioned accounts.

Regardless of the type of access, channel or content, social media managers will have greater access to better content to share with their audiences. Ultimately, the university’s social media audiences will benefit by being served this content over time.
