Published on

People are spending lots of time socializing on-line. Social media applications like Facebook, Twitter and Blogs can be used to achieve measurable results in marketing, customer service and feedback on your business. When you really understand these relationship-building tools, you can put them to work faster and more effectively.

Businesses that know how people use social networks, and what they expect from them, can reap many benefits. On the other hand, if a company doesn’t understand the nuances of on-line networking, it may find itself ostracized and abandoned by users.

This fast-paced session will show you how to use Facebook, Twitter & Blogs for your business, and perhaps give you a whole new outlook on social media technology.

  63. 63. Next Steps <ul><li>“ Success in social media comes with the right attitude and intentions. If you make the shift from selling to helping people buy you will find your greatest possible success as an organization.” (Source: Chris Heuer, http://socialmediabuyersguide.com/about/ ) </li></ul><ul><li>Think of social marketing not as an “add-on” requiring “extra effort” but as a paradigm change in marketing , and as a replacement for less effective marketing channels </li></ul><ul><li>Spend time understanding social media as it applies to your specific markets. </li></ul><ul><li>Move some marketing $$$ from a traditional channel to the new ones (e.g., eliminate one trade show & hire an Online Community Manager) </li></ul><ul><li>Note: B2C, B2B & B2G have three vastly different communication dynamics. </li></ul>(Source: http://www.slideshare.net/Weave/comcast-social-media-conference-facebook-for-business-breakout )
  64. 64. “ How to Kickstart a Community” <ul><li>Create compelling content on a daily or weekly basis (wall posts, videos, podcasts). </li></ul><ul><li>Invite influencers and advocates to your on-line community first. Perhaps, give them first right of testing the system and then have them invite others. </li></ul><ul><li>Encourage interaction through conversations. Ask questions, talk about controversial topics, or host a contest that encourages participation. </li></ul><ul><li>Reward users who participate the most. Unexpectedly, send them something nice as a thank you, or reward them with premium services –never money. </li></ul><ul><li>Centralize your community around your real world events.  Talking about the event both while it’s happening, and then afterwards are key. </li></ul><ul><li>Integrate social media with your website, and make sure your call center, email marketing, and external newsletters all include references to your community (including email signatures). </li></ul><ul><li>Encourage employees to get active by posting, debating, and having conversations about the news, product updates, or relevant YouTube videos.   </li></ul><ul><li>Of course, you have an online community manager on staff, right? </li></ul>(Source: http://www.web-strategist.com/blog/ )
