Strategy and plan
The film was posted on Vimeo and YouTube. A video link was sent to The Scotsman newspaper and VisitScotland, among others, and posted on QMU's Facebook page. The team sent the film to its contacts, while staff and students were encouraged to use their own social media networks to promote the video.
Measurement and evaluation
VisitScotland, which has 35,000 Twitter followers, retweeted the video and shared it on Facebook. BBC Scotland held an interview with Salhab, which was broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland.
Within 48 hours of going online, the video was viewed by 50,000 people on YouTube. To date, it has received more than 472,000 views on YouTube and 16,000 on Vimeo.
