  • Joe EdwardsHead of Strategy –Brand EngageExperience of events (both run social media small scale and larger events – attracted 2million visitors over seven week run)I’ve probably missed some bits and some of my suggestions may not work for every event, I hope this inspires you, if you have any questions please let me knowI’m not a cat owner, but there might be some bad cat jokes
  • Quick look at the social media landscapeStrategyContentBeforeDuring AfterWhat you should be measuringQuestionsOptimize you social efforts
  • Amiando - Social Media & Events Report 201272% it’s either some what or very important78% will be increasing your activity
  • Amiando - Social Media & Events Report 2012Facebook wins Then twitterWhy facebook – we’ll it’s the first big network, because everyone said “we need a Facebook page”But in the real world in real time perhaps it’s twitter that has more opportunity
  • Twitter Mentioned In 50% Of Super Bowl Commercials, Facebook Only 8%, Google+ Shut OutLike of Zeebox people are looking for a realtime companion
  • Increase - FamiliarityIncrease - Awareness of brand
  • Most events are very seasonalInterest over time for the britsMissed opportunity in the seasonality of your events, that few seem to be taking advantage of, building a long lasting consistent relationship with your audiences …. but before I get into that we must look at …
  • Content Plan Content CalendarDefine how you respondChannelsTone of voice documentKey stakeholders – speakers, artists or their managers
  • These are the mechanics of building relationshipsWe’ll discuss what the content may be a little later on
  • Going back to number one goal of familiarity3 studies have shows that repeated statements are perceived as more valid (Illusion of truth) and naturally increase familiarity
  • You won’t have to reactive your audience
  • BeforeDrive word of mouthDeliver expecttationsDuring
  • Because by your very nature your event is producing content, you just have to learn to harness it
  • It should never stop
  • Content is sooo importantThink about everyone round the tableHow can you get more content out of those involved with the eventMake it mandatory for speakers to write blog postsHow can you supply more content for them to publishTools such as basecamp, yammer and even a simple editorial calender can help you improve your processes
  • So what to do during the party
  • SocialMobileLocalPersonalGlobal
  • Create a customer service and public announcement channels so people at the event can stay up to date and ask any questions they may have
  • So what to do during the party – sorry no cats for the next bit
  • The wristbands could wave them at various stations around the grounds and their Facebook status would automatically notify their friends which stage they were at
  • BlogsInstagramPhotosPinterestTwitterFacebooktwitterwalls
  • But people are paying to see this stuff why would we live stream it as wellDon’t you have an opportunity to create new contentWhich creates new sponsorship opportunitiesIt can be relativity in expensive
  • RFID bracelets that let visitors update their Facebook status while on the move. By swiping their wrists over sensors before going on rides, participants can 'Like' features, notify friends about their activities, and have their pictures captured and tagged.
  • Incentivize check-ins- provide deals and offers with check-ins
  • Drive traffic to social properties – Use email (it still works)Create opportunities for users to tag themselves in photosCreate a hub of content Use social login for private access and ability to quickly shareOh that’s CAT5 network cable
  • THE PLACE FOR CURATED CONTENTPinterestLink backs to siteReshare contentIncrease the half life of your content
  • Be the authority on your event
