  17. 17. Customers• Build the Community – Be strategic – size matters, but ‘who’ is just as important – Use existing communications channels – Use the community building tools of each channel – Start by following, engaging then be followed – Role of ‘Key Influencers’ is critical – Avoid ‘get follower fast’ schemes ENERGISE2-0.COM
  18. 18. Conversation• Social media is ‘marketing as a conversation’ with your network. It is not about one way broadcasting• Actively encourage interaction e.g. blog posts end with request for comments/feedback; on Twitter use Reply, RTs often; on Facebook/Linkedin – participate in groups/forums• This has time and resource implications ENERGISE2-0.COM

  22. 22. 7. Monitor and Measure• To ensure that your SM strategy delivers a return on investment, it is important to monitor and evaluate on- going performance benchmarked against agreed objectives, KPIs and targets• Performance evaluation should be undertaken at three main levels… ENERGISE2-0.COM
  23. 23. Individual Channels• Individual Channel Performance – the effectiveness/success of each channel benchmarked against agreed targets for the ‘6Is’ i.e. Involvement, Interaction, Intimacy and Influence – most channels provide easy to access statistics for measuring each ‘I’ to a very high degree of accuracy ENERGISE2-0.COM
  24. 24. Social Media ‘Buzz’• Wider Social Media Performance – monthly or quarterly reporting of the overall ‘buzz’ created by your SM activities using appropriate Social Media Monitoring tools – this will show the impact of your SM activities on others and other channels – it measures the volume of mentions, trends over time, which channels are driving your buzz, who is taking your message further, through which channels, and what affection or affinity they are showing, and so on ENERGISE2-0.COM
  25. 25. Business Impact• Underlying Business Performance – the performance of each social media channel and the overall ‘buzz’ created are ‘lead’ rather than ‘lag’ measures – in a social media era, they are the main ‘drivers’ of future business performance – the final level of performance monitoring, therefore, is linking your social media activity to overall business goals and objectives e.g. enquiries, sales or customer loyalty. Is social media achieving your ultimate business objectives i.e. ‘lag’ measures? ENERGISE2-0.COM
  26. 26. Performance Measurement ToolsA range of tools are available at each level:• Individual Channels – e.g. Facebook Insights; Klout; Kred• Overall ‘Buzz’ e.g. Topsy Analytics; Viralheat, other paid SMM tools• Business Impact e.g. Google (Social) Analytics; SCRM ENERGISE2-0.COM
  27. 27. Social Media Management Do’s and Dont’s ENERGISE2-0.COM
  28. 28. Do’s and Don’t’s• Don’t Be a Showoff – Your posts should add value to the ‘customer’ – it’s not about ‘me,me,me’• Don’t Use Poor Grammar or Spelling – Don’t try to be too cool• Don’t Get Too Personal (business users) – Keep the conversations warm but professional; it’s what business users expect and anything else comes off as creepy ENERGISE2-0.COM
  29. 29. Do’s and Don’t’s• Don’t Automate – It’s OK to schedule posts for specific times but don’t automate everything. Social media is about personal/brand engagement not blatant promotion e.g. don’t automatically DM new twitter followers with a sales message - it’s seen as spam.• Don’t Leave Air in the Conversation – Respond as quickly as possible – within hours not days.• Don’t Overpost – Don’t flood your followers’ timelines ENERGISE2-0.COM
  30. 30. Do’s and Don’t’s• Do Shout Out to Users Who Mention You – Thank those making favourable comments; be very careful how you respond to any negative comments• Do Monitor Keywords and Sector Trends – And respond when appropriate• Do Make an Informative Profile – It’s the first point of contact so critical. Tell what you will be posting about• Do Hang Out Where Your Customers Hang Out – Don’t always expect them to come to you ENERGISE2-0.COM
