In addition to my role as costumed historical interpreter at the Old Barracks Museum, I contribute to the museum's social media content on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter; click on the logos below to go directly to the page, or scroll to see sample of the content in Instagram form.
NJTV Tourism Tournament
In the summer of 2018, the Old Barracks Museum competed against iconic NJ institutions for the title "New Jersey's Favorite Tourism Destination." NJTV awarded the museum a three and a half minute spot as a result of my social media posts, a selection of which appears below.
The "Coolest Museum in New Jersey"
Since the win, The Discoverer Blog voted the Old Barracks Museum the "Coolest Museum in New Jersey," among the ranks of the Metropolitan Museum in New York and the Philadelphia Museum of Art in Pennsylvania.
Manufacturing a Revolution Event Series
For our March 2019 event, I wrote social media content to explain the interpretive themes. By developing consistent, scheduled posts, I advertised the event and educated the public about life in eighteenth-century Trenton.
Daily Happenings at the Museum
By continuously highlighting the new things happening at the museum, I use social media to sustain the Old Barracks Museum’s current following, reach potential visitors, and promote return visitation.
Just for Fun
To keep social media presence inviting and entertaining for a variety of audiences, I make sure to include lighter tone posts that still convey important historical content.
Holidays & Current Events
To keep the social media content relevant, I regularly theme posts around holidays, current events, trending topics, and local happenings.
