  • NEW BACKGIRIND IMAGE AND RC LOGO
  • This is required. If you can't do this, don't do social. Your audience will call you out on it.
  • Chris Coon and others have tapped into this. Be real and accessible to show how hard you're working for the people. Integrate staff, too!
  • The more reactive you are, the more people will come to depend on you for reaction, sound bites, reliable perspective. Don't let that feed sit dormant.
  • Social enables you do to what you were elected to do … find out what constituents think, feel, want and serve them. Ask questions, put issues in front of them for discussion.
  • Brands (perhaps even congresspeople) are being algorithmically challenged to feed FB, Pinterest, etc., ad revenues. Pay to support your important posts.
  • The fewer text only updates you can make the better. Images draw people in. Non-image posts get lost.
  • Snapchat, Vine, Instavid … these networks are becoming more and more impactful from a pass-along and word-of-mouth perspective. Snapchat would be interesting. The video goes away. Have to be a follower to get the real scoop.
  • Stop trying to follow trends and just service your main channels well. People will come where you play if you set that expectation.
  • The first thing I tell anyone considering leveraging social media is always listen first. Think of it a bit like polling. Look at who’s talking, what are they saying (exact words), how are they saying it and where? But once you’ve completed a social landscape audit and know what’s going on, your listening doesn’t stop there. Just like you would advise your senator to stop by their local coffee shops to ‘listen’ whenever they are in town, listening is an ongoing need. Either learn to understand monitoring tools or hire someone who can.
  • Least restrictiveGuidelinesRead before sending (count to 10)
  • Social media is not a space where you should get up on your platform and blast your message out. Treat it as a place to connect with folks on a one-to-one basis. Think of it as more like a telephone vs. a megaphone. You would never phone up your friends and just start talking as loud as you can AT the other person. Don’t do this on Twitter or any other social media platform.Also, save the bragging for your press release. You would never walk into a cocktail party and just start talking about how great you are. Social media is all about the soft sell.
  • That was before snapchat...Good and bad news
  • What is important to you? Your leadership?How often do you want to know it?Then look at tools
