Welcome to NMC Promotional Resources, where you can find descriptions and contact information for the various promotional outlets overseen by NMC Public Relations, Marketing & Communications along with helpful information on promoting your announcement, program or event.
Filling out this form is the quickest and easiest way to submit your promotion request, and will help assure that it gets prompt attention.
Please include the following information with all requests, if applicable:
- Name of organization
- Contact person’s name, phone number, email address
- Event name, date, time and location
- Cost and where to purchase tickets
- A brief description of the event, along with who it is intended to attract (the target audience or audiences)
- Graphics and/or logos
Want to get your campus event or NMC-related news in front of students and NMC faculty and staff? Submit it for consideration for the Intercom and Student News, continually updated blogs found online on the NMC Communiqué. Note that information posted to the Intercom and/or Student News is also available to the general public at blogs.nmc.edu (and note that most college communications are a matter of public record under the Freedom of Information Act).
Recent blog posts are also listed on the myNMC employee and student login pages at employees.nmc.edu and students.nmc.edu. Recent Intercom posts are also collected and sent out as a weekly email newsletter to faculty and staff every Monday. Recent Student News posts are collected and emailed to students every other Tuesday.
The deadline for submitting items for inclusion in the emailed version of the Intercom and Student News is noon on the weekday before the emailed versions are sent out (Friday for the Monday Intercom, and Monday for the Tuesday Student News). Please fill out the Promotion Request Form with the information listed above to submit your item for inclusion, and mention whether you'd like it in the Intercom or Student News (or both). If you would like your item to appear in more than one newsletter, please mention that in your request.
Campus Video Monitors
Campus monitors display NMC-related department or campus event information pertinent to students, staff and faculty. Please fill out the Promotion Request Form with the information listed above to submit your item for inclusion. For campus events or meetings, submit information after space has been reserved.
Since each slide is only displayed for 10 seconds, the text on each slide should be limited to 50 words or less.
If you're submitting your slide content as artwork, like an image file or a Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF document, use a horizontal (landscape) rather than a vertical (portrait) orientation for the image or document, ideally with an aspect ratio of 16 by 9. An image that's 1024 pixels wide by 576 pixels tall would have the correct aspect ratio.
Contact Cari Noga, Public Relations Specialist, at (231) 995-1027 or email@example.com.
Do not directly contact outside media.
Send your news release draft with the information listed above to Cari at least three week prior to the desired release date. Submit information only on events intended primarily for the public (as opposed to primarily for staff and/or student audiences).
News releases are automatically posted on the NMC website and can be posted on relevant pages within the site and on the NMC Communiqué.
Contact Meg Young, Coordinator of Graphics and Printing Services, at (231) 995-1077 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
NMC logos for use on posters and in other communication materials created by the college and its units can be found here.
Color printing of flyers and posters, including 11" x 17", can be done in-house for quantities less than 100. For larger quantity orders, contact Meg for assistance.
Radio Announcements at WNMC
Contact Eric Hines, WNMC General Manager, at (231) 995-2562 or email@example.com.
When contacting Eric, please decide who your audience is (i.e., students or the larger community), so your announcement can be scheduled accordingly. Passing along a flyer is a great way to get a DJ’s attention and some possible extra announcements. Email is the preferred way to pass along information. Please put "PSA" or "Event" in the subject line and email to firstname.lastname@example.org, with a three- to four-sentence on-air announcement. If the event involves a musician or other artist, copies of their work (with obscenities flagged!) definitely help us help you.
Please work with the Public Relations, Marketing & Communications department to post items to the main NMC social media channels (those with the most friends and followers) rather than start your own Facebook, Twitter or other social media pages, to get the broadest reach for your promotion. Send the information listed above to email@example.com at least a week in advance of your requested posting date.
