Share the webchat link via social media a week and a day or two before each session. For MSc chats, the MSc team can make sure it's promoted on their Facebook groups.
As of 30 January 2018 - it seems that Coveritlive is blocked in China (you can test it using greatfirewallofchina.org). So advertising on Chinese social media seems a bit pointless (although some sources suggest that about a third of Chinese internet users could probably access this).
Send to email@example.com
Add event to Prospective Students on Flow (as an event. Use hashtags: #external homepage, #management, #social media).
It's not entirely clear what the benefit of doing this is, but why not eh?
Contact Antonio Marcos (International Communications Coordinator), who may be able to help promote internationally
This is probably the most effective means of getting participants. Relevant administrators should be willing to send an email to applicants/enquirers informing them of the webchats. One a week before, and a follow up a day or two before should be enough.
Promote live chat to international agents (contact Viginia Irwin)
Get the email addresses from the Google form spreadsheet (should be in a folder on the drive called 'webchats'). You should be able to copy and paste the cells directly into an Outlook message without having to add them individually.Gecko (at the time of writing I don't know how to do this)
Always use the BCC field to send emails to students. If you don't, you'll be sharing their email addresses. If that's not a breach of the data protection act, it should be.
Suggested text - obviously might you'll need to amend the time, timeanddate.com link and MSc/UG depending on the courses.
