  • Personally, to me – Social Media is about ConversationsIt’s about taking all those conversations you have offline and putting them online through some new tools. These tools will forever be changing but the conversations should remain the same.
  • Well, I signed up, isn’t that enough?media applicationIt takes too long to realize any ROI from social media effortsIt’s already too late for me to get my business involved. I’ve missed the boat.
  • Some people say they are concerned with privacy
  • Whatever fear is keeping you from talking to your customers and making your voice part of what’s happening – get over it.Your customers don’t care why you’re afraid- they just see you don’t want to talk to them.Whether or not you decide to enter your voice into the world of social media, your brand is already there. Conversations are happening with or without you.You can either take control or hide under the desk. The only way to be “safe” in social media is to be “in” social media. Claim your VOICE@
  • Your public response demonstrates your commitment to customer satisfaction. In a recently published study conducted by Invoke Solutions, one of the most important features that inspire trust amongst social media users is that the conversation happening around your brand be open to both positive and negative comments.NO LOGO
  • Social media is not about you. It’s about people’s relationship with you. Listen before you speak.
  • Social media is about conversations and building relationships. It takes effort.Don’t just talk about yourself. Ask questions, engage people and link.Most of all, be inspiring
  • You can’t control the conversation. If you want people to spread your message, you have to trust them. Listen, Inspire, Engage. Let go.Brand and public relation disasters are not CAUSED by social media. Social media is what lets you SURVIVE them unscathed and better for the wear. – Lisa BaroneBut closing your eyes and ears does not make you safe. It makes you vulnerable. – conversations are happenings
  • You can’t spin the truth with Social Media. Be open, honest and authentic in everything you say and do.
  • Don’t expect immediate, easily measureable results. It takes time to build trust and make connections.
  • Social media allows people to voice their opinions to millions of listeners.Wanna know what they’re saying about you? (Don’t be afraid- take it on!)There are many sites out there that allow you tomonitor your online reputation...Tell the logo story
  • What is your objective? 100 fans? Word of mouth – number of new volunteers?It isn’t about $ - Tell story about donor from TexasPlatforms, Twitter, FB? Media guru – if you use volunteer / intern, monitor!Measure performance time of day with post change? Frequency, content?
  • Social Media Management…It’s notenough to just sign up…Very important! I go to websites, check FB page
  • It’s impossible for someone to work effectively juggling their regular responsibilities and all the social media.For example – usually I check all the sites first thing in the morning committed ¼ to ½ of a full-time staff person to social media. 30 minutes to 3 hours a day
  • #1 error, not including links in enews. Not having a call of action
  • Integrate your social media locations on your website.Make it easy for your visitors to find all the social media you are dabbling in.Make it easy for them to “follow” and subscribe to your posts.
  • First and foremost, it is important to promote your newsand social media connections by:1. Posting your news on your Web site2. Providing quick links to social sites on your Web site3. Adding bookmarking tools such as the “Share This” featureto your news, events and blogs
  • WordpressTypepadBloggerWebsite is very static, - blog allows you to change easily and have new links. Longer stories than FB or Twitter.
  • Wikipedia says “A blog is a type of website, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog. “
  • Links to social media – always want to take them from one medium to another.
  • Story telling blog: where you share lots of anecdotes about the people you are helping, the partners you work with, the volunteers and donors who help you, and the staff  and board who keep everything moving forward. If you want donors to better understand the need for and impact of your organization . . . create a storytelling blogThis could be called an “insider” blog because much of the storytelling is about what happens behind the scenes, including the little victories and struggles along the way that may not be press release worthy, but still shed light on the realities of your work.Through stories, you are really letting donors see the world through your eyes and giving them an insider’s perspective.
  • I propose you devote a minimum of 30 minutes per day focusing on your blog marketing activities. Visit other blogs, get ideas, make comments
  • user topics and sub topics and assign days. That will help you get on track and so you’re not facing a blank page. Use as a guide. If you want to get crazy and spontaneous, all the better. Especially if there is a current event.
  • On my desktop I have stickies and when something strikes me, or someone mentions something I write it down. So If I’m ever stuck, I have something I can look at.
  • Again, they can write it ahead and you can schedule the post.I would love to have my ED – I think letters from the ED are a bit bland and old school in newsletters. I would much rather love to get a day to day account or a special personal view from my ED. Goes with the culture of Social Networks, transparency, behind the scenes, creating a sense of community and being “in the know”

  • A widget is a stand-alone application that can be embedded into third party sites by any user on a page where they have rights of authorship (eg. a webpage, blog, or profile on a social media site). Widgets are fun, engaging, and useful applications that allow users to turn personal content into dynamic web apps that can be shared on just about any website. Little pieces of code you add to your blog
  • Don’t know how to do something, Google it!
  • Go to your profile, and the left column, click it and it will bring you to badges page, click badges home and you can get to this page. Click social media plugins and then you can choose your activity feed. There is an easy way to do this, Blogger, Typepad, other i.e. website and then you can punch in the html code and decide where that goes.
  • With over 500 million users, Facebook is now used by 1 in every 13 people on earth, with over 250 million of them (over 50%) who log in every day. The average user still has about 130 friends, but that should expand in 2011.48% of 18-34 year olds check Facebook when they wake up, with 28% doing so before even getting out of bed. The 35+ demographic is growing rapidly, now with over 30% of the entire Facebook user base. The core 18-24 year old segment is now growing the fastest at 74% year on year. Almost 72% of all US internet users are on now Facebook, while 70% of the entire user base is located outside of the US.Over 700 Billion minutes a month are spent on Facebook, 20 million applications are installed per day and over 250 million people interact with Facebook from outside the official website on a monthly basis, across 2 million websites. Over 200 million people access Facebook via their mobile phone. 48% of young people said they now get their news through Facebook. Meanwhile, in just 20 minutes on Facebook over 1 million links are shared, 2 million friend requests are accepted and almost 3 million messages are sent.
  • Once selected, it can’t be changedpublic—anyone can find and view your page whether they are logged into Facebook or not." Facebook is an Internet site that allows users to post online profiles (including photos, information about themselves, etc.) and then connect to other users who share the same interests, experiences, etc. Facebook is built around groups and is made up of many networks, each based around a company, region, high school or college. Many nonprofits already have accounts and are reaping the benefits for their organization and their cause.One reason why it's so popular is because it's just very easy to use. Adding friends, updating your profile, changing your status message - whatever you do takes just minutes.
  • 1) Sharing quality, relevant content and 2) inciting comments. – post 2X a WEEK ( at least) Newsfeed– join and participate in groups– events, photos and notes features
  • Keep your status updates short and simple with one topic. You have up to 420 characters per update, but I recommend about half that for an ideal size.
  • In other words, your content doesn’t always have to be directly related to your product or service. You might share an inspirational quote and add your own thoughts, for example.
  • How to get to insights? While in fanpage, go to the right hand side – and it has insights – notificationsYou can use facebook as Windrush
  • It’s sort of like text messaging but on the web. When you first start to tweet, it feels really odd. Why would you share what you’re eating? And why would anyone care? It seems like it’s only useful for narcissistic people or those trying to waste time. But people do.
  • If you have contacts in outlook, easy way is to create a free email account, google, etc. import contacts and then let twitter find your peeps.
  • Wordpress has an easy way to do this.
  • There are different ways to do this. There are aps that cross tweet, or you can add this like I have from involver.
  • You wouldn’t carry around a business card without your phone number on it, would you? So why would you send an email without your Twitter handle in it? I think this is the single most important think you can do! Your staff too
  • Uploaded video clip to Youtube and Social Media history was made.

  • 73. The Network Effect
    1. We spread what interests us and what we think will interest others.  Make sure your content is not just “good enough to check out” but rather “good enough to recommend.”
    2. We spread what allows us to share something about ourselves.  When we want people to share something about us, make sure there’s the opportunity and inspiration necessary for them to share something about themselves, like Drew did with Blame Drew’s Cancer.
    3. We spread what we have incentive to share.  Give people a reason to spread the word.  It could be the desire to be part of something bigger than ourselves or social currency or social status.  Or the chance to do good.
