PROMO Services

Who We Serve

The services of the PROMO Group are available exclusively to the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. This includes all faculty and staff in the college. 

What We Offer

Our group offers a broad spectrum of services to tell your story. The best method depends largely on the audience you are trying to reach. We can help talk through your options. Our services include: news releases, newsletter stories, social media exposure, publications development, web site development, identity/logo development, display/exhibit creation (including banners, signs and trade-show displays), template creation, college branding guidelines, and more. To make a request for PROMO services, fill out the Request form.

What To Expect

In determining how we can assist you best, we will ask for any background materials you can provide. Proposals, websites and previous coverage help us understand what you have going on. For news releases, newsletter stories or social media, we often need to schedule a brief interview and photoshoot that together typically take 30-45 minutes. For more in-depth media development, additional meetings may be required. To make a request for services, fill out the Request Form and someone from our team will get back with you.

Some of the ways PROMO can tell your story

News releases: The upside to news releases is that they help reach the widest possible audience. They are written to let reporters, editors and producers know about your work in hopes they will be interested in putting together news stories. We vastly improve our chances of getting coverage when we keep the release simple and free of technical language. For more help see "What are the elements of a good news story" on our Resources page.

Newsletter stories: The college and several departments regularly publish newsletters to highlight the accomplishments of faculty members and students. This is a good way to reach alumni, colleagues and university supporters. A newsletter story is a good option for awards and honors that may be a big deal in your profession but don’t necessitate a news release (see “What are the elements of a good news story?”). It’s also a good option for those who may be concerned that the simplicity of a news release lacks the precision they feel necessary to communicate their work.

Social media posts: Facebook and Twitter posts are a great way to spread the word about some of the other honors, awards and events that make Clemson proud. Good examples are announcements about scholarships, poster contests and winners of best paper awards.

Videos: These are typically used for websites, awards ceremonies and to accompany news releases. PROMO Group can help facilitate the production of your video project.

Powerpoint Presentations: Powerpoint templates are available to assist you with presentations. You can find these on our Resources page.
