Learn about easy, low-cost, web-based tools you can use to keep your web content fresh, learn about your audiences’ needs and preferences, and measure the impacts of our outreach efforts. This session will draw on the experience and lessons learned in integrating various tools into the University of Vermont Extension New Farmer Project website. We’ll explore key considerations to determine which tools – form-builders, social media plug-ins and e-newsletter services – make sense for your situation, and what kinds of data you’ll want to collect to know you´re on the right track. We´ll look at some examples of how we have integrated blogs, commercial forms and e-newsletters for expanded reach and interactivity with beginning farmers. This in an update to the well-received presentation we made at the 2014 conference, including more information relating to metrics and evaluation. Bring your laptop, success stories and questions.
