Convert your campus into a catalyst for more great posts and content by displaying eye-catching screens with your Gigg Board.
Control what shows up on your board using your Social Inbox and also notify your Students, Faculty, and Alumni when their post is being featured. This encourages traffic to your site while also fostering a reward system for engagement. Not only can you display posts on your Gigg Board, but you can also add calls-to-action on each of the posts driving additional traffic wherever you want.
The Gigg board is versatile and can be added where you need exposure most! Easily add to your website, or make a bigger show of it at events on the big screen. Not only does this provide you with an opportunity to engage, but it also provides you with a way to add additional custom posts to advertise other school programs, initiatives, and announcements.
