  • Social Media OMG – Where to Start?
  •  
  • What is Twitter?
    • Twitter is a social network comprised of short updates, or tweets
    • You post tweets for your followers to read
    • Your followers post tweets for you to read
    • Platform for the web or your mobile device
  • – A Network about Everything So, what’s your social network about? Nothing. Nothing. Everybody’s doing something - we’ll do nothing. Nothing?
  • Build a Deep Network Around You Leverage your entire network, not just your customers.
  • Why Are We Doing This? Whuffie! Whuffie is the culmination of your reputation, influence, bridging and bonding capital, current and potential assess to ideas, talent and resources, saved-up favors, and accomplishments. The Whuffie Factor by Tara Hunt www.tarahunt.com
  • Do Amazing Stuff – They’re Watching Photo: AP
  • Listening is Important Too
    • Serve your audience better through increased understanding
    • Monitor and respond to positive and negative chatter
    • Collect RSS feeds from social networks and blog, then scan them each day
    • Not engaging may make you seem “anti-social” online
    • Learn what your peers are doing
    The social web gives us unprecedented access into the lives of customers – ignore it at your own peril.

  • Something to Keep in Mind
    • As with every foray into social media, you need to walk, not run .
    • Set goals you would like to achieve
      • More site visitors, increased conversions, improved SEO, or email subscribers
    • Develop a strategy to meet those goals
    • Implement tactics – do some stuff!
    • Measure the results!

    • Measure the results!
    • Adjust goals, strategy, tactics then repeat
