Located in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Grand Valley State University tasked MSM during their yearlong campaign with ways to engage the 78,000 GVSU alumni who are on Facebook and capture up-to-date alumni contact information.
MSM collected alumni contact information by enticing them to enter a giveaway contest with the chance to win GVSU branded prize packs.
During the university’s first 30-day Alumni Reconnect campaign, MSM was able to help GVSU increase its Facebook fan base by 64%, reach more than 32,340 alumni, and obtain current alumni contact information.
MSM entices grads to both like your alumni association’s page and provide their most up-to-date contact information. We use Facebook data to locate people who have identified themselves as alumni of your university — regardless of whether or not you ever had them on your contact list. Even if they have new names, new jobs, and new addresses, Facebook’s ubiquitous platform points us right to them. Once you’re connected on Facebook, you’ll be in touch with your alumni no matter where they go in the future.
