In Your Words 9

In this blog post I will plan a hypothetical social media plan for the month of April 2016 for academic purposes only.

The goal is to inform more people about the attractions that Epcot has to offer to generate more ticket sales. Another goal is to increase last minute registration for the Inaugural Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side – at the Walt Disney World® Resort, and generate buzz around the event.
