At Onsharp, we get excited when people use social media to contribute to conversations. We love seeing little moments being shared that give people a clear and meaningful understanding of what an organization or experience is all about.
This week’s #HighFiveFriday goes out to DECA Inc. for their execution of the Social Media Correspondent Program. DECA is an organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management. Their members (currently over 225,000) are social media savvy. They love to talk about where they are, what they’re doing and who they’re with. DECA knew if they could leverage their engaging educational programs with their community of members who love to share, they could achieve massive reach. And that’s exactly what they did.
We love DECA’s Social Media Correspondent Program because:

@DECAInc My advisor is my biggest fan and craziest guy I know! He deserves the biggest thank you
- It creates an abundance of content to repurpose– With so many unique stories, ideas, and advice, the program gives correspondents an outlet to share content through blogs, tweets, videos, and more. This content can later be repurposed, too.

- It makes people feel involved– This program gives students an outlet to share their passion, have additional involvement and get resume builders. Plus, DECA gets to extend the reach of their message, gather unheard stories, and connect to organizational members in a deeper way.
Our team is RED HOT
