(Logos, color schemes, tag-lines, etc.) – Complete all relevant “About” related information. (ex: mission, hours of operation, products and services, etc.) – Be flexible and adapt.

  16. 16. Getting Started Post Strategy Example #1
  17. 17. Getting Started Post Strategy Example #2
  18. 18. What Makes Good Content – Post photos and videos. High definition photos and videos in graphic detail and vivid color provide engagement levels that far exceed plain and simple text. – Links: Don’t limit your links to your products. Link to interesting websites, related news articles, and even funny tidbits. Mix it up. – Use the 80/20 rule: 80% of status updates should give value to the fans first, 20% of status updates can be promotional, or brand first. – Post like a friend, not a brand. Informal, personal language gets a better response. Stay away from complex terms. – Reply to fans when they comment on status updates. This encourages fans to interact more.
  19. 19. What Makes Good Content – Keep status updates short. Use 250 characters or less when possible. – Celebrate milestones. People like numbers and celebrations. – Ask a question about an image. For example “Where do you think this photo was taken?” – Best caption contests: Ask fans to title interesting photos and announce a winner. – Do not post groups of photos all at once. Publish images one at a time or three at a time (the most that will be previewed on the wall) to create more reactions over multiple days or weeks. – Use simple fill in the blank prompts: For example “My biggest savings challenge is __________.”
  20. 20. What Makes Good Content – Ask for likes. Tell users to “click like” if they agree with a statement. – Trivia isn’t trivial. People love a good factoid. Whether it relates to your product or company, current events, or is just interesting, a cool nugget of information will have people looking for you in their news feed. – Recipes: I know it seems silly. You’re a bank. But, guess what. People love posting pictures of food on Facebook, Twitter and especially Pinterest. – MOST IMPORTANTLY – POST REGULARLY. Be a consistent, reliable source of information and financial expertise. You can still take time off. Schedule ahead. Use your team.
  21. 21. Where Can You Find Content • Human Resources – new hires/promotions/transfers, ask the president • Employees – FAQs, testimonials, tips & tricks, customer education • Products & Services – specials, rate changes, new launches, features, comparisons • Newsletter – if you produce one, it’s chock full of social media posts – probably a few per article • Community Events – sponsorships, parades, fairs, chambers of commerce, charitable organizations, churches, donations • Business Customers – grand openings, sales/specials, restaurant menu items, realtor open houses/new listings, auto/service specials • News / Weather / Stocks / Sports / Legislation
  22. 22. Where Can You Find Content • Trivia – this day in history, Wacky Word Wednesday, Fun Fact Friday, from the archives • Seasonal – finances, recipes, decorations, travel Just About EVERYWHERE!
  23. 23. Social Media Challenges • Brand Reputation – People are talking about your bank whether you like it or not – Some of it is truthful, but… – Free Tools: Google alerts, Hootsuite, Tweetdeck, Social Mention – Our Recommendation: • Control Your Brand – establish your social media sites to own the conversation • Respond and solve issues you find or take the conversation offline
  24. 24. Dealing with Negative Posts • Turn negative comments into positive opportunities • Don’t delete all negative comments, keep them visible – Customers know that not everyone is happy with their bank at all times – Remove any posts that are inappropriate/offensive, contain vulgar language, violate privacy or other policies, etc. – People who post negative comments want a reaction – deleting their comment does not diffuse the situation and will encourage them to continue to complain where you can’t do anything about it – It’s how you respond to these negative comments that makes the difference • Your quality customer service will be seen by other users and may influence their banking decisions
  25. 25. Negative Post Examples • How would you respond to customers complaining on Facebook about the following? – Bounced Check Return Item Fees • Customer received numerous $25+ fees due to insufficient funds. Felt charges were high. Multiple charges unnecessary. – Lost Debit Card Replacement • Taking too long to arrive. Called bank and assured it was sent, but new card hasn’t been received yet. – Auto Loan Denial • Customer has existing loans with the bank, but was just denied for another car loan.
  26. 26. Compliance • Social media keeps compliance people up at night • Same rules and regulations apply as all other advertising media • Risk management and reputational risk • Keep management and board informed of bank’s use of social media • Employees’ use of social media • FFIEC Social Media Guidance – released December 2013 – Released December 2013 – No new requirements – Meant to explain potential risks, expectations to manage risk, and suggestions regarding social media policies and procedures
