  • 25. This was my goal in action. I  want  to  be  viewed  as  a  trusted  resource…especially  in  ways  to   use  online  networks  and  social  media  to  communicate.  
  • 26. So, what’s your goal?
  • 27. What’s next? It’s not about the “next” Twitter or “Foursquare.” It is about bringing structure, focus and strategy to the idea of social.
  • 28. 1. Know what you want to accomplish. (This is your goal, your strategy!) •  •  •  •  •  •  •  •  • 
  • 29. 2. Identify the businesses’ social media structure •  Often seen in large multi national companies (e.g. HP , IBM) •  Business units are given individual freedom to deploy as they see fit, yet a common experience is shared amongst all units •  Requires constant communication from all teams to be coordinated •  Requires considerable cultural and executive buy in, as well as dedicated staff. This  is  the  brainchild  of  Jeremiah  Owyang  (@jowyang).  He  shares  five  models  at  www.web-­‐strategist.com.  
  • 30. 3. Integrate into an existing business plan (e.g. marketing and communications) •  It doesn’t have to be a turf war. •  This is ANOTHER part of your outreach. •  Add metrics (even if this is a benchmark year) –  High level metrics: •  Goal: Foster dialogue; Measure: Share of voice, Audience Engagement •  Goal: Promote advocacy; Measure: Active advocates, Advocate influence, etc –  Mid-level metrics: •  # of clicks •  Retweets, “Likes” •  Comments •  Online sentiment
  • 31. 4. Establish social media policy (Or integrate with existing communications policy.) •  Identify who can say what, when and where •  Know when you will/will not respond •  Crisis communications •  Sustainability •  Exit strategy •  Do employees need training? •  Examples of appropriate social media use versus abusing time online
  • 32. 5. Examine your workflow, change as necessary. •  It’s not about working more, but working better •  Creates a process, a system…a habit! •  Eliminates confusion •  Break down tasks –  Listen –  Respond –  Delegate
  • 33. 6. It might not be a fit for you if... •  Your staff totals one and you are currently responsible for all communications •  In a highly regulated profession with legal implications •  Don’t feel comfortable or can’t get buy-in from executives •  Not sure if your consumers are on social media or want to be interacted with via social media
  • 34. What’s next? Creating tactics not around the tools, but those which are flexible (i.e. not platform dependant) and able to evolve.
  • 35. Find an opportunity to showcase what you do best.
  • 36. Hijack a conversation and offer an opportunity for others to share
  • 37. Meet a need in an innovate way
  • 38. ASK them what they want!
  • 39. GIVE them what they want!
  • 40. Don’t underestimate mainstream or traditional media
  • 41. Generate A LOT of quality content
  • 42. Do it for a good cause
  • 43. Give freely, give often
  • 44. Share, acknowledge, give •  •  •  •
