  18. 18. The fundamental mindshift• Most brands still get it wrong• Social media is NOT about reaching out and engaging with your customers (or potential customers)• But it IS about your customers (or potential customers) engaging with you• The numbers are small but the process is potentially powerful because they have identified themselves to you18
  19. 19. Why people will engage with you• To say something nice about your brand• To say something nasty about your brand• To ask a question for which your brand may be the answer• To make a suggestion about how your brand could be better• Your still need to facilitate, prompt and engage in the conversation19
  20. 20. Making Facebook work its hardest for you• Evening and early morning posts generate 20% higher engagement• Wednesdays and Sundays are the best days to post (+8%)• Posting 1 to 4 times weekly generates 71% higher engagement than 5+x for retail brands• Short posts generate most engagement• Asking questions doubles the response• ‘Fill in the blank’ posts work well• Coupons and offers (ideally £off) get response• Don’t be afraid to break any or all of these rules in the real virtual world

  29. 29. A recipe for PR success• Start with a plan. PR and social media is part of your business, not an add-on• Start slowly – play, explore, don’t be afraid to start again• Find and tell stories• Measure what you do• Do it with passion – not because you have to• Set up a personal LinkedIn account• Start/invigorate a company Facebook page• Start a company and/or personal tweet• Practice and persevere• Reap the publicity rewards, ie. more business32
