  • Chart from report presented early 2010 – reflects data gathered late 2009. Would say that more than this is going into social media and most groups aren’t really measuring full investment.
  • Poll the audience. Get some examples of how much time/money/staff going in and what sorts of measurements being used to assess that
  • Introduce role of engagement pyramid –
  • Talk about various models/options

    3. 3. So What’s the Problem<br />The amount of online noise directed at decision makers makes it hard for them to listen. Congress isn’t convinced you’re for real. <br />
    4. 4. Communicating is not organizing. We can talk to more people than ever.<br />But are we changing policy? Are we building sustainable movements?<br /><br />
    5. 5. The Bar is Low<br />One click to take action, like us.<br />One click to leave – though most don’t physically leave as much as just stop giving attention. <br />Limbo Dance, BarbadosPhotographicPrint<br />
    6. 6. Social Media<br />For many organizations right now this is where it’s at<br />Facebook: <br />500 million users. 200 million on mobile. 50% of users log in on any given day. <br />150 million US users<br />Your staff, leadership and board likely want you to “do more” with Facebook. <br /><br />
    7. 7. Resources going into social media growing<br />Are these resources impacting policy and program?<br />
    8. 8. Social Network Investment and Measurement - examples<br />
    9. 9. The state of Social<br />A lot of noise<br />A lot of potential – it would seem<br />Resources being invested with unclear goals and return<br />Need to build and foster networks to change policy and support organizations<br />Is it at all sustainable? <br />

    11. 11. Engagement Model – Define One<br />
    12. 12. Engagement Models : Needs/similarities <br />Organizing leadership – what are the opportunities for leadership<br />Engagement pathways – where do people plug in and move up<br />Networks/Nodes – distribute leadership<br />Common Narrative<br />
    13. 13. Engagement Models : Options/Alternatives <br />
    14. 14. Lay social networks over (or under) engagement models<br />Engage and connect<br />Don’t sit back – drive interest and participation <br />Respond and personally interact<br />Ask questions<br />Most interested and engaged will rise up<br />Surveys and list building to gather information and participation<br />Offline events<br />
    15. 15. Lay social networks over (or under) engagement models<br />Data and metrics<br />Be deliberate about tying together social network profiles, email records and other data. <br />Identify other activities and interest of user.<br />Frequent commenters, likers, retweeters.<br />Track, reward and promote.<br />Every action should have a metric. What is the qualitative result you seek to make happen. <br />
    16. 16. Examples<br />
    17. 17. Building Program : Inside Job<br />Why do social media?<br />GOOD: Evidence 5% Facebook connections will take an additional action needed for the campaign and this will move them up the engagement ladder.<br />BAD: Lots of people are there and we want more of them.<br />
    18. 18. Building Program : Inside Job<br />The people<br />Grounded in campaign planning and implementation.<br />Ability to distribute social media and campaign skills and support.<br />Data and number crunching.<br />Support from leaders and front-line program staff to help interact and respond in timely and accurate way.<br />
    19. 19. Building Program : Engagement model<br />You need one – what is it for your organization and needs<br />Identify how people fit into the model and work towards it in three or six month increments. <br />If captains in field – identify how many, who they might be, what they need to do. <br />Someone inside that is ultimately responsible for helping and resourcing leaders.<br />
    20. 20. Building Program : Tools/Tactics<br />Offline events/meetups that build engagement over time. <br />What to track and report on weekly? Identify three things and report on that to team or all staff. <br />Data collection and analysis. Be ruthless in measuring and learning.<br />
