      • First, focus on your campaign
        • Who is your target audience?
        • What are your key messages?
        • What is your theme and how are you going to implement it?
      • Word webs, streams of consciousness, word associations and other super fun brainstorming processes.
      • Based upon your theme and target demographics, utilize language and emotion to strike a chord with your audience.
  • Considerations::
      • Choose words that sound well together
      • Think about your ad size
        • Banner ads are like billboards
        • You can incorporate much more content in a 600 x 200 pixel ad versus a 70 x 30!
        • Also think about resizing – how can the same message be displayed in various sizes?
      • Make sure your copy relates to your brand
        • Carries on brand / client voice
        • Is cohesive with your campaign
  • Considerations::
      • Your online copy needs to catch attention as a user is surfing by!
      • Provide what the user needs to know without going overboard.( 5-7 words max.)
      • Size still matters (Your copy must be legible!)
      • Incorporate Search Engine Optimization (SEO) keywords (Be clever, but stay consistent with your message!)
      • Create a call to action.
  • Why Social Media is Important to Marketers::
    • Social media is based on user-generated content and information
      • Marketers want users to be advocates for their brand, product or service
    • Large amount of active users
    • Speed of communication
    • Ability to build and maintain direct relationships
  • How Social Media can benefit brands::
    • An opportunity to provide accurate information and stay in control of the message
    • Develop new relationships and maintain current ones
    • Engage consumers with a brand
    • Monitor conversation to find unsatisfied consumers or properly address a situation
    • Increase search optimization efforts
  • Social Media & relationship marketing::
    • Social media allows a company to make a connection to a user or its public
      • Provide timely updates or comments
      • Display another side of the organization
      • Directly respond to questions or concerns
    • Social media allows companies to develop their customer service
  • Communicating on social networks::
    • Take time to be aware of how the network is used
    • Develop messages that are conversational
    • Keep to your brand strategy or communications objectives
  • Social networks and ads::
    • Social network ads are engagement based:
      • Can and will use connection’s images
      • Will be based on user-provided information
      • Provide an outlet to continue engagement (like, join the conversation
    • Can function like a pay-per-click or like a banner ad
