  • Outline of our upcoming webinar.
  • Outline of what we’ll talk about
  • Survey to find out whether these folks have a social media strategy?
  • It’s not about the tools
  • No matter how fancy you get
  • It’s about the people.
  • Digital extroverts – they’re the people you need to know to do more things. You need to find them and socialize with them.
  • What are digital extroverts using social media for in relation to your events? (your participants, not you as organizers)
  • More broadly…what’s social media good for
  • How does that relate to your focus areas? Can you find sweet spots?
  • The more overlap, the more people care, the closer you can come to a bullseye.
  • Quick point about listening—should be central to any strategy. “social” is 2-way. Otherwise it’s just a traditional communications strategy, not a social media strategy.
  • WOM is the basis of any strategy related to building attendance or buzz. We’ll explain the 5 Ts of word of mouth, as Andy lays them out in his book. It’s the simplest strategy that will definitely work.
  • To conclude, each of us can give advice about the best place(s) to start. Stuff like: Build the capacity to listen & respond Figure out who your talkers are Know your objectives [We can change these, or make them up on the fly…and Tara might have something different. Just thought I’d put in what I was thinking.]
