  2. 2. Michael Hoffman: See3 Communications Today’s Session How many times have board members or parents asked how your school is using Twitter or Facebook? As if you don't have enough to do! The shiny objects of new technologies can suck time and money from your staff and distract you from key priorities. But these tools are also revolutionizing communications and allowing you to build relationships that can lead to more students, an increased donor base, and a better community reputation for your school. Participants will gain a big picture understanding of what is needed to make appropriate and effective decisions about social media and see how real-life institutions use social media to advance their goals.

  11. 11. Why Use Social Media?  Monitor your school community and your supporters  Find new stakeholders and build a following  Help members stay connected  Promote publications, events, and staff  Raise awareness, stimulate discussion  Quickly and effortlessly get a message out where people will see it  Recruit and fundraise
  12. 12. Communities (Like Yours) Are Moving Online
  13. 13. Your Constituents Depend on Their Social Networks for Information… …Make sure your school is giving them what they need where they’re looking for it. • What events, initiatives, announcements, and new programs are you trying to communicate? • Are you ever frustrated that an email is, at worst, a 1 way conversation? • Do you want to start conversations with parents? Alumni? Students? • Struggling to show a link, a video, or just share your thoughts in a way that people actually notice and promote? • Do you feel like your website isn’t always enough to make a strong connection with prospective students, parents, and donors?
  14. 14. Concerns? They’re Reasonable. Student Privacy, Appropriate Content, Cyberbullying are all Valid Concerns…But Social Media is About Open and Transparent Conversation. With Responsible Stewardship You Can Foster a Positive and Productive Network. • Whenever minors are concerned, privacy is a concern. • How do I moderate content to ensure it’s appropriate? • How do we teach our limited staff to manage all this conversation? • Are there legal risks? • I don’t feel comfortable going social if I don’t know the appropriate controls to ensure safety and positivity
  15. 15. The Key = Responsible Mgmt. • Define the role of your pages/platforms. Make sure that all parties who are managing these are completely aware that what they post must at all times be in line with the core purposes • Example: Class related questions, staying current with alumns, showing off classroom related projects • Conversely to the above, concretely define what can not happen on social media pages • Example: critical commenting on students, discipline, or community members, revealing personal identifying information • Define who is responsible for best practices (and page creation), create a training program, and ensure that all people who have access complete and sign-off on the training • Each page should include legal disclaimer with a statement of purpose approved by your legal counsel • If possible, release of use of image should be extended to social media (you are using this for marketing after all) and included into contracts
  16. 16.  Volume ◦ # of fans, followers, views, hits  Engagement ◦ comments, time spent on site, RTs, shares, blog mentions  Actions ◦ donations, sales, event attendees, signatures, sign-ups  LISTEN! ◦ Above all, social media is conversational. Like any good conversation it lets you find out what a person is thinking, what their concerns are, what they like, and what they don’t Measure Impact
  17. 17. • Personal social network • Set up fan page for your organization • Share updates, photos, videos, links • Ability to run local, targeted ads
  18. 18.  Far and away the #1 social networking site. Huge swaths of your audience are on Facebook  Create fan page for your organization or your issue  Share links or videos from gatherings or trips – or related topics  Organize an event and invite Friends/Fans  Create a targeted ad to extend your audience or publicize your event Use Facebook
  19. 19. As an AdvertisingTool
  20. 20. As an Advertising Tool • FB ads come in multiple unit types, can be targeted to specific demographics (like age, geography, and what schools they attended) • Bid based system lets you control how much you spend if you want to purchase impressions or interactions
  21. 21. • “Micro-blogging” – 140 characters • Share updates, news, links, promotions • Build a “following” and “follow” other users - good for high profile personality • Stay updated on industry trends & news Use Twitter
  22. 22.  Use Twitter Search (http://search.twitter.com) to find people discussing your issue  Monitor news using Tweetdeck or Hootsuite  Determine your best content by tracking clicks (use a URL shortener such as bit.ly or tinyurl.com) Ways to Use Twitter
  23. 23. Manage Using TweetDeck or HootSuite
  24. 24. • Build a personal or organizational “Channel” • Upload and view online videos • Popular search engine Use YouTube
  25. 25.  Promote an event with a simple slideshow  Get members of your school on camera  Show your supporters behind-the-scenes videos  Host a weekly vlog (video blog)  Curate videos on a topic using playlists  Embed your and other videos on your site or on Facebook pages Ways to Use YouTube
