How to Identify, Cultivate and Engage with Influencers to further your Mission

  1. 1. FOUR (OF MANY) WAYS TO IDENTIFY, CULTIVATE AND ENGAGE WITH INFLUENCERS TO ACHIEVE YOUR MISSION Jay Geneske @jgeneske
  2. 2. Jay Geneske, Director of Digital, The Rockefeller Foundation @jgeneske
  3. 3. Big Influence Goal Utilize social media to influence the influencers. One (of Many) Tactics Use social data tools to find, communicate with, and track interests of bloggers, press and other influencers. @jgeneske
  4. 4. @jgeneske Reach is not the same as influence. There is great power in one-to-one social media communication. Give far more than you ask, and use your asks wisely.
  5. 5. Industry-Specific Influencers Bloggers and Media @jgeneske
  6. 6. Big Influence Goal Leverage event-honoree Elton John’s social media influence to celebrate philanthropy’s achievements. One (of Many) Tactics Make it as easy as possible for Elton’s team to broadcast social media content. @jgeneske
  7. 7. @jgeneske Leverage existing events and activities. Know how to share the spotlight. Influencers are busy people. Make their job easier.
  8. 8. Reached 190,000+ people, most not currently in our network. Gained 500 organic Facebook page likes directly from Elton’s post. @jgeneske
  9. 9. Big Influence Goal Raise thought leadership profiles of staff. One (of Many) Tactics Build staffs’ digital footprint and strategically syndicate their content to reach new audiences. @jgeneske
  10. 10. @jgeneske Give staff light-touch help on social media. Think of content as separate from platform. Do what you can until you can do more.

  12. 12. Big Influence Goal Engage and educate a global audience on themes of urban resilience. One (of Many) Tactics Create and leverage #ResilientCities hashtag. photo: Sandeep Menon Photography, Flickr @jgeneske
  13. 13. Don’t measure social media impressions. Influencers don’t necessarily have large followings. Think like a Social CRM, even if you don’t have one. photo: Sandeep Menon Photography, Flickr @jgeneske

  16. 16. EMAIL CONVERSION Convert social referrals to email list to deepen audience data. photo: Sandeep Menon Photography, Flickr @jgeneske
  17. 17. Users that open same email multiple times have likely been influenced to forward to their networks. Sort email addresses by @CompanyName to surface possible leads. Use email data to retarget influencers on social media, like Facebook Custom Audience: photo: Sandeep Menon Photography, Flickr @jgeneske
