Original methods of marketing and social media are not mutually exclusive. Social media is an embedded and most popular form of communications
Social media has changed the way we share information - good or bad.# 1 - Customer has a bad experience, they go out for dinner and tell their friends about it = 5 people then have a negative impression of that company# 2 - Customer has a bad experience and then posts in on twitter – they have 200 followers – 201 people now have a negative impression of that company. 1 of those followers re tweets it they have 100 followers = 301 people have a negative impression…
Live examples from twitter this week.1 negative comment 127 followers – not too damaging however 3 of her friends retweeted – hitting in total 42612 people what she thought of their service.Just underneath this stream is a request for advice on which service to go for…..wonder if he will do the same search that l did?
# 1 she takes on Apprentices# 2 that she struggled to find suitable candidates as not enough were applying# 3 provided some case studies of the strong candidates she did find to promote them in a positive lightThe first search that l did on Google alone brought up 9 pages of different articles and news stories of her talking about ApprenticeshipsLook this up on twitter, Warwickshire College spotted an opportunity for positive promotion and ‘tweeted’ Deborah she replied and it is now on their twitter feed for all of their followers to see should they wish them too.New media at its best.

This portal allows them to share information with their current & potential customersThey can search through these sites to look at what people are saying about their brandThey can use them to search for key types of people, i.e. if they were looking to attract more people onto a mechanics course they can use twitter to search for ‘petrol heads’ and comment on their twitter feed, or follow them – they may then in return look at their opportunities.Create links with partner colleges / providers Keep up to date on what is #trending and ensure that they are part of it if relevantAll sounds very time consuming – Danielle does not do this full time, she is a PA within the college so already has a day job!
Before Obama became the next president of the USA he used social media to connect with potential voters this included twitter, my space and blogs – in 2011 he has 10,672,326 followers!Develop EBP have had 1161 hits on their information on you tube aloneUp for Hire used live ‘tweeting’ as part of their programme, in this screen shot of 4 people there tweets are seen by over 3000 people.

“Southend Adult Community College (SACC) are new to Social Media. We launched our Facebook andTwitter sites late last year and have found them both an effective communication method withour learners, potential students, partners and local businesses (Employer Responsive targeted Marketing).It has proved to be a great tool to promote new courses, news and events on the site. By posting pictures oran event, our fans are able to tag themselves in pictures and can share our links with their friends, thisenables us to gain a wider captive audience.We recently met Ed Miliband and Ed Balls, we uploaded the pictures to our Facebook page, it was justminutes before we were being contacted by external organisations regarding the visit, just shows howpowerful social media is. Although Social Media is not my full time role, I manage to run our sites alongside my workload. However,it is a big commitment as it has to be moderated and given the nature of social media if you don’t maintainthe sites it defeats the object. I regularly check the site over the weekend and in the evening to make surethe nature of the material that is being posted is not offensive or derogatory in any way.Although a lot of time and effort has gone into setting SACC up on Facebook and Twitter, we feel that it is avaluable marketing tool.”

Igniting your social media presence 1. Have a reason to use social media (e.g. campaign to increase enrolments, targeting employers, raise awareness). 2. Scan social media for intelligence – what‟s trending/who‟s trending (re. Deborah Meaden) 3. Identify how you are going to generate interest (e.g. competition in local media, piggy back on national campaigns/event e.g. NAS) 4. Provide a call to action through social media (contact numbers/email, integrated webform in FB page) 5. Join up all social media platforms for consistent messaging and delivery – provides more options for the social media user. 6. Refuel the campaign with updates (e.g. youtube videos, increased presence in local press)
