  • (Ummm)...I think the title of this presentation should be: ’you’ve successfully attracted a SLIDESHARE following’

    I was absolutely unimpressed with this presentation.

    The ONLY reason I clicked on it was because I saw it had an astronomical amount of views…so I followed the crowd of popularity.

    Hot topics generally generate a lot of comments. Or people download them, so they can use them later.

    But I must say, “Thank you for the lesson.” I learned the hard lesson of being a follower :(

  • The early days are when you need to find the voice of the brand. You need to find the balance of business and human voice.
  • Be prepared for executive interest building and the question of ROI.
  • Consider the growing needs of the growing number of followers, and be careful not to tweet with stranger. Read bios and know who you’re talking to.
  • Personality has replaced the brand logo. Humanizing the brand is the true opportunity of Twitter.
  • 2011 Fortune 100 Companies Twitter List http://twitter.com/#!/PRNewswire/fortune-100-2011
  • So how do you take what was very successful for a smaller number of people and one person manning the company Twitter account and scale that to serve the needs of a growing following: Editorial guidelines, Content strategy, Team strategy, Engagement strategy, Schedules and roles
  • Marketing / PR (Promotion of organization) = &lt; 10% Conversation (Humanizing conversation) = 10% Social media (Effects on your industry) =15% Your industry (News &amp; tips) = 15% Engagement (@’s and RT’s) = 50% Opinion on politics and religion = 0% …unless your business is politics or religion
  • Your corporate Twitter account is your front line. Make sure those on the front line are well prepared for the types of questions or concerns clients may have. Don’t keep them in the dark.
  • Give the team ownership over their content and give your followers the transparency they deserve.
  • Make your content strategy very simple and clear.
  • It’s not always a big crisis, but they can be just as important.
  • Look at yourself in the mirror often. I use Flipboard on the iPad.
  • Inspect your audience frequently and know who they are. Your audience will evolve as it grows. You need to know who you’re talking to.
