Regardless of your community, there are certain things and types of content you will want to share. We call this proactive engagement, from sharing planned content to proactively mentioning and reaching out to people in your social network. 1. Editorial calendar - Schedule content as far in advance as you need. At Spredfast, we may put things in as far as a month in the future for events and special programs. - Create “shell” content to remind you and other content contributors of when things should be published. - Allow more people to help with creating and sharing content in social media by allowing a larger number of users to access the system.
2. Scheduling/posting multiple types
3. Easily choose your network - Also, we see agencies adding content on behalf of clients who then simply approve the promotions and news.
1. Easily respond Reactive engagement. In addition to proactively publishing content and engaging with your community, every organization will need to be ready to react and respond to real-time activity. The Social Inbox was designed with reactive engagement in mind, to help companies scale more efficiently and effectively. -The Social Inbox helps monitor activity most pertinent to as organization. At Spredfast, we monitor references to Spredfast, important social media outlets and content creators,as well as popular hashtags. -To help percolate the elements that elicit an actual response, activity like @spredfast mentions, direct messages and Facebook comments are added directly to the Initiative Inbox to highlight the most important content at any given time. Here, engagement is made more effective due to a few key elements: Engagement is easier with response opportunities directly in the Inbox items Multiple contributors can access the Inbox and response activity can actually be assigned to team members And you won’t have to worry double responding or accidentally not responding, because everything has an audit trail. Other key elements to point out in the Inbox: Highlighting items for team members Notes
Beyond pre-scheduling activity for your social channels around events, news and campaigns, organizations need to have a grasp of what’s being said about them and relevant topics. Rather than mining for all the possible conversations taking place around everything happening in social media, organizations should practice what we refer to as “actionable monitoring” – or rather, monitoring for the keywords, brand names and people that are highest priority to acknowledge. Spredfast’s Social Inbox helps you organize your monitoring efforts in an effective way. As a Spredfast user, you can create streams based on keywords, brand names, competitors, specific users or specifiC accounts.

As Ken mentioned earlier, before you start implementing social campaigns, you need to know what your goals are to be able to measure the campaign’s effectiveness. Knowing what your organization’s KPIs are for using social to accomplish a certain business objective will help you analyze success and adjust a campaign accordingly once it’s kicked off. Spredfast can help you gain social intelligence about the impact of your social media activities through a variety of analytics built into the platform,etc, etc. Our data allows you to monitor effectiveness, gain insight and then use those insights to course correct activity if need be. Detailed measurements on ideal time of day for publishing and engagement are clearly shown to help guide content contributors and editors scheduling content. For web and business analysts, detailed metrics can be seen on the Analytics tab. Here, each comment, click and conversion are accounted for.
