  • I will do my best to stop and answer these every so often as they come in. I can’t guarantee I can answer everyone, and it’s my first time trying this, so bear with me. Also, if I don’t get to your question and you’d really like to discuss it – please save it for the end or come find me afterwards and we can talk more. Lastly – when you text in, it will assign a random screenname to your comment – like a color and animal. Don’t worry, your phone number is not sold or spammed by this service and your comment is anonymous!

What or with whom is he already interacting with? What is she entertained by? What is he passionate about?OBJECTIVE – Listening? (research) Talking? (spread mktgmsg) Energizing? (rally for a cause/encourage action) Supporting? (enable audience to connect w/ each other) Embracing? (sourcing ideas)STRATEGY – How will social media change your relationship with your target? Who will be involved (internal/external)? What resources are needed? What are your competitors doing (locally/nationally)? What does success look like and how will you measure it? (measuring ROI)TECH – Which best fits your needs? What core functions will you use? What skills/resources do you need? What are the risks or costs? How long will it take to develop?
