      • During a crisis, engage people and give them a reason to stay with your brand. 
      • Educate everyone with access to the brand accounts on crisis management, etiquette and higher expectations when you are granted a brand's identity. 
      • Your social media team must be part of your crisis planning.
      • Your social media team must tied into your PR and marketing teams and your decision makers .
  • 8. Shelly’s takeaway
      • Own the problem: Create a statement and the changes you're implementing.
      • Be timely: Create responsive tweets immediately.
      • Explain: Post/tweet at regular intervals – often.
      • Give more info: Post link to an informational page.
      • Follow: Follow brand dissenters.
      • Take it offline: Take the conversation offline.
      • Your people: Don’t leave your employees out of the loop.

      • Agency is a specific legal relationship – When you hire someone to be your agent, they are acting on your behalf – as if they were you – when they enter into contracts.

  • 11. Anne-Marie’s takeaway
      • Brands need to know what their right and left hands are doing.
      • Just because you’re a blogger doesn’t mean you’re a social media consultant.
