  • 12. Maintaining Trust
    We understand ethical behavior is a key part of maintaining trust
    We don’t support flogs or splogs
    We would never create a fake ad, so why a fake blog post, fake Facebook fan page or fake tweet?
    We always practice full disclosure
    That means about ghost writing, too
  • 13.
  • 14. Disclosure
    When communicating with blogs or bloggers on behalf of my company or on topics related to the business of my company, I will:
    Pseudonyms:
    (Option A) Never use a false or obscured identity or pseudonym.
    (Option B) If aliases or role accounts are used for employee privacy, security, or other business reasons, these identities will clearly indicate the organization I represent and provide means for two-way communications with that alias.
    “We Didn’t Know”
    Clearly disclose our involvement on all blogs produced by the company or our agencies.
    Disclose who I am, who I work for, and any other relevant affiliations from the very first encounter.
    Disclose any business/client relationship if I am communicating on behalf of a third party.
    Provide a means of communicating with me.
    Comply with all laws and regulations regarding disclosure of identity.
    We will inform employees, agencies, and advocates that we have a formal relationship of these disclosure policies and take action quickly to correct problems where possible.

    It’s about knowing
    Where the conversations are happening
    What your share of the conversations is
    What the conversations are that you could / should be in
    Who the key influencers are who can help build your brand
    It’s about expanding your news flow
    Simple syndication – distribute news via basic sharing tools (eg, Twitter and Facebook)
    It’s about understanding communities
    Which groups, forums and networks matter?
    Who drives share of conversation in these communities?
    What are the next steps in driving relationships?
    It’s about leveraging existing contentand improving your natural search
