  • I’m Sarah Page and I work for the Lower Colorado River Authority providing tourism and economic development assistance to the communities and organizations in our service area. And what XX didn’t tell you is ….
  • We have a lot of ground to cover today. There will be plenty of time for Q&A at the end, but I’m also happy to field questions during the presentation if you’ve got something that just can’t wait.
  • Can help reach a different demographic – one that doesn’t respond to traditional advertising (no newspapers – can get news on your phone)SEO = getting found onlineViral = now people will tell friends in a more public way

  • Handout:Ways to Use Twitter
  • Tell potential fans and followers something about yourself. Make it clear who you are and what they can expect. Many people – me included – don’t follow anyone that doesn’t have a bio.
  • Let people know what social networks you’re using. Make it easy for them to connect with you. Put it on websites, e-newsletters, on a sign in your store/office …
  • … in your email signature. Make sure the icons are hyperlinked to the sites they represent so that when people click on the icons, they are taken to that specific social network.
  • This is another way to let people know what they can expect to find on your page … and what you’ll tolerate. It may not hold up in court, but it gives you political cover to delete posts that are inappropriate in any way.

  • It’s pretty difficult to connect on a personal level with a business or organization. Unless the person doing their social media sounds like a real person. Have a personality. Pick a “voice” for your social media efforts and stick with it. If your community has certain expressions or slang, use them!
  • Facebook now lets you “tag” otherFacebook pages and people in your status updates. When you tag another page, your status update/post shows up on your page AND on the page you tagged. Fans of that page can see your message too! It’s an easy way to grow your fan base.
  • Pinterest is a 2 year old social bookmarking site that lets users collect and share images that inspire them on the web. It currently has over 10 million users. Just like you would pin something you want to remember on a bulletin board, Pinterest lets you do the same thing to images you find on the web. Create your own virtual bulletin boards for the things you love – like recipes, places you want to visit, ideas for your home, and more. Once something is pinned, it can be “liked”, “shared” on Facebook, tweeted on Twitter, repinned, and commented on by your followers.Pinterest is especially popular among women, which account for 58% of its traffic. It began as a venue for displaying crafts and other hand made items available for sale. It is the third most popular social site behind Facebook and Twitter.

  • Snap a picture, choose a filter to transform its look and feel, then post to Instagram. Share to Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr too – it's as easy as pie. It's photo sharing, reinvented.Instagram heads toward the 100 million users milestone.Some highlights from these app stats are:Each day on Facebook 300 million photos are uploadedInstagram gains one new user every secondOne billion photos have been taken with the appThere are roughly 58 photos uploaded each second
