Promoting your club/event

Don't leave promotion until the last minute, shout about it with plenty of time!


Digital communications

Have you also thought about doing your promotion digitally? We can help you do this, go to the Communications page. You can fill this out and this may be posted on the Students' Association FacebookTwitter and/or the fortnightly email that we send out to all GCU students. Always include an image, a small bit of blurb and a link (could be to a facebook event, the event on our website or to your clubs page on our website). You could also tweet us @GCUstudents, we'll retweet, comment and help spread the word!



Remember to always have the Students' Association logo on your poster, this indicates to the poster-taking-down-people that your are associated with us.

Posterboards, is there any point? Of course! We have put up new boards in the Students' Association, located in the Student Bistro, on Level 0 corrider and on the back wall in the 24 hour computer lab. We also had a stroll through the whole uni and have written down all the posterboards we think that you can stick them up on. Download posterboard mapping document.  Don't put them on postersboards that are clearly marked for courses or something else.


Poster/flyer Top Tips

  • 2 Second rule - you want to catch the eye and get your info accross in about 2 secs so...
  • Don’t forget colour! Make it bright and colourful, helps catch the eye compared to these white bits of paper everywhere.
  • Think about your image - one image can tell the person what you are trying to promote in one easy step.
  • Keep information to a minimum - essential info only, include a link they can go to if they want to know more.
  • Always have a contact, include: web address, facebook page and/or email address (use club/ society not personal), some way they can get in touch or get more info.
