Take Aways• Get key players to talk about – Your goals for social media – How you might measure success – Who you are going to follow / like – (coz this says a lot about you) – Who you want to be followed / liked by – What that means about the content you create – Who you seed it with – Your “tone of voice” g
Take Aways• Be prepared for negative feedback – It’s rare, but it’s best to plan• Our rules: – If it’s incorrect, inaccurate or misleading then engage with the feedback and fix it – This might mean buying flowers – If it’s likely to escalate – get it off social onto email – If it’s abusive – ignore it• http://www.NoisyLittleMonkey.com/Feedback Give feedback and view a copy of these slides + a printable tip sheet g
