This might be across a virtual network (e.g. email), or in the same place (e.g. an electronic voting system).
  • Digital inclusion in Wales
  • Wales• 23% adults digitally excluded in Wales• 18-25 yr olds – 9/10 access the internet• Older people, those with lower socio-economic status, individuals with limiting disabilities and those with lower educational attainment are more likely to be digitally disengaged.
  • Wales• Take up of internet lower in Wales than UK• Geography of Wales• Broadband / mobile coverage• Language
  • Wales• An important distinction is made between digital disengagement through personal choice and through socio-economic or health constraints.• Digital disengagement through personal choice is closely linked to age and life stage of an individual, with those who are not interested in using the internet tending to be older and retired people.
  • Wales• Six out of ten non-users report they had no need or desire to have household access.• In comparison, three out of ten non-users reported that equipment or access costs were too high• And two out of ten reported lack of skills as the main reason.

  • Getting people to engage
  • Getting people to engageExercise:1. How will you get people to come to yoursite/follow you/like your page?2. How will you encourage them to interact withyou?
  • Engage genuinely• Use your own voice – not a corporate one• Engage in conversations• Respond to comments• Comment on other blogs / sites• Be genuine• Don’t just market your services
  • Make it ‘sticky’A sticky website is one where a first time readerarrives and finds it difficult to leave… becausesomething about the site motivates them toexplore it further – and more importantly to make adecision to (and takes some steps to ensure thatthey) return again to it. Taken from www.problogger.net
  • Make it ‘sticky’• Sticky content• Good design• Clear branding• Make it personal• Posting frequency Taken from www.problogger.net
  • Make it ‘sticky’• Interaction: comments, competitions, surveys, polls• Incentives: giveaways, prize draws• Respond to comments• Highlight your best content
  • Make it ‘sticky’“What’s in it for me?”
  • WIIFM?• Being part of change, the opportunity to be involved• Having a voice / being heard• The convenience of using ICT to engage• Belonging to a (social) network• People feel validated when their comments are responded to• Being the first to know – about events, free stuff
  • Marketing• Advertise / promote new opportunities using existing mechanisms (newsletter, website, face- to-face, events / forums / networks)• Invite people to enter a competition, and ask their consent to keep them up to date with future opportunities to engage
  • Marketing• Complete a form – include a tick-box to give consent• Word of mouth• Link from other websites, partner organisations• Add links to information leaflets, reports, business cards etc
  • Measuring success
  • Measuring successNumbers of followers or fans doesn’t mean anythingExercise: How will you measure the difference your use of social media is making?
  • Measuring success• Number of comments / re-tweets / likes (quantitative)• Content of comments (qualitative)• How the comments/interaction have made a difference to services
  • National Principles• National Principles for Public Engagement apply to all forms of engagement/participation• Just because social media is quick and easy don’t forget to engage properly• A mix of engagement methods is best way to reach everyone – don’t rely on just one
