    Social Media Marketing Strategy 10.5.09 Social Media Marketing Strategy 10.5.09 Document Transcript

    • Social Media Committee Marketing Strategy NVTC Mission Our mission, first and foremost, is to promote NVTC as a leader in social media. The group will strive to embrace this new medium and adapt to its ever changing environment. Through educational forums and insightful dialogue with NVTC members, the Social Media committee will become a valuable resource for those in the Northern Virginia technology community who want to use social media tools to improve how they communicate with key audiences. While there is a need to understand more about the tools that make up the social media landscape, most importantly, it is about what tools are the best fit for businesses and how they fit into a company's overall goals. NVTC's Social Media committee will address these very issues that are top-of-mind with the members. Marketing Strategy Here are some general marketing strategies we either discussed or can discuss. Please let me know what other marketing tactics or ideas you have. • Blogs (posts, articles/archives, case studies, interviews, events calendar for NVTC events, social media committee and other social media groups, etc., links to the experts’ blogs, link to NVTC, advertising in exchange for speaking, etc.) • Major Events (3-5 annually, partner with other NVTC committees, partner with other Social Media groups) • Monthly Meetings (speakers, panelists, roundtable) • Email Blasts (develop our own mailing lists) • Meet-up & Networking (Content Driven) • Webinars and Podcasts • Annual Holiday Gathering • > • > • > • > • > • > • > 1

    • Social Media Committee Marketing Strategy NVTC • Google Analytics • > • > • > • > Sponsors Sponsorship is by far extremely important and I did not intentionally leave it last! It just worked out that way. I listed the sponsorship levels and on the following page some of the sponsors Matt Jacobson suggested we contact. Platinum Sponsor (Wilson Sonsini, Welz & Weisel) $4,000/series • Introduction opportunity • Six (6) complimentary tickets to all events in series • Tabletop exhibit space at each event • Name and/or logo recognition on event signage • Sponsor ribbon for one(1) name badge at the event • Name recognition on NVTC's Web site event calendar • Name on NVTC's e-Newsletter and targeted electronic promotions • Name and/or logo on any additional materials that may include invitations, programs, postcards, brochures, etc. Gold Sponsor $2,500/series • Four (4) complimentary tickets to all events in series • Tabletop exhibit space at each event • Name and/or logo recognition • Sponsor ribbon for one(1) name badge at the event • Name recognition on NVTC's Web site event calendar • Name on NVTC's e-Newsletter and targeted electronic promotions • Name and/or logo on any additional materials that may include invitations, programs, postcards, brochures, etc. 9
    • Social Media Committee Marketing Strategy NVTC Silver Sponsor $1,500/series • Two (2) complimentary tickets to single event • Tabletop exhibit space at single event • Name and/or logo recognition on event signage • Sponsor ribbon for one (1) name badge at event • Name recognition on NVTC's Web site event calendar • Name on NVTC's e-Newsletter and targeted electronic promotion • Name and/or logo on any additional materials that may include invitations, programs, postcards, brochures, etc. This is just the start of a list of sponsors to contact. We have Wilson Sonsini and Welz & Weisel as two platinum sponsors. I’d like to hear from folks about types of companies to target. For example, do we want to target NVTC members who are small businesses and are marketing companies? There are a whole host of government contractors, networking/integration companies, etc. that don’t appear on the surface to be good candidates to sponsor. I have a list of 20-30 possibilities for companies that have web sites that talk about marketing, advertising, etc. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated • AOL • Washington Post • National Geographic Ventures • > • > • > • > 10
