Meet Ming Tsai
Ming Tsai has always had a passion for food. It all started when he was a child and worked alongside his family at their restaurant, the Mandarin
Kitchens. As he grew older, he decided to make this passion his way of life
Although he originally set off studying Mechanical Engineering at Yale University, Tsai still managed to spend his summers at Le Cordon Blue
(a culinary school) in Paris. In fact, he loved Paris so much that after graduating from Yale he moved there and trained under renowned pastry
chef Pierre Herme. After spending some time in Paris, he then set out for Osaka where he worked with sushi master Kobayashi.
After learning the cooking styles of the world, Tsai returned to the United States with a burning passion to learn more. He soon enrolled at
Cornell University, where he earned a Master’s Degree in Hotel Administration and Hospitality Marketing. Since then, Tsai has made his
presence known in the culinary world.
In 2010, it was without hesitation that Tsai agreed to help the Family Reach Foundation make a young woman’s wish come true. Darlene was a
young woman who was suffering from osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer. One of Darlene’s last wishes was to meet Tsai and have him cook
Since then, Tsai has been actively involved with the FRF in many ways aside from performing cooking demonstrations for families fighting
cancer. He has hosted many fundraising event, including the first Cooking Live even in Boston, MA.
When Ming Tsai isn’t serving up 4 star course meals, he is
serving up smiles to those in need. Check out his

Conversions Are King
-Your social media reporting should be based on when and how often
social media activity assists in creating a conversion.
Engagement is Nice, but Focus on Sentiment
-Remember: If engagement isn’t generating conversions, it amounts to
nothing more than vanity metrics. Don’t forget to include direct
engagement (one-on-one conversation, such as @ responses and
status update comments) in your engagement reports.
Don’t Get Caught Up In Follower Counts
-While more followers can create the opportunity for greater reach,
followers for the sake of followers should not be a goal or a major
highlight of any social media activity report.
We recommended utilizing Google Analytics.
First, create your conversion goals in the “Admin section.” A goal can simply be a
visited page. For example, if you’re tracking a campaign that generates social media
traffic to a donation landing page, simply add the “Thank You” or “Confirmation” page
URL as a goal. This will track how many people reach this page after making a
donation (assuming it can only be reached after making a donation). It’s best to track
pages that can only be reached after a form is filled out, so that you know you’re
tracking true conversions only.
Next, add all of your social profiles to your account. To do this, visit the “Admin” section
and select “Social Settings” from the middle column.
Finally, visit the “Social” menu option under “Traffic Sources.” This will list all of the
traffic generated by individual social media profiles. You can also see how many
conversions were generated as a result of that social media traffic.
Social Media Metrics in Order of Importance
1. Conversion assists
2. Traffic from social media
• Mentions • Shares • Comments • Likes / +1s / favorites
Thoughts and Tips
1. Remember: it’s about sharing and discussing, not broadcasting.
2. Use Visual Stories
3. Make social media someone’s specific job. Assign responsibility to a person or group of people on your staff.
4. Communicate frequently and Use Social Media Year Round
5. Become a trusted member of your community
6. Create a partnership campaign – for every specific number of likes, a business will donate a fixed amount of money to
7. Write weekly current blog post
8. Blog about the progress of your active projects, so donors can see where their money has gone.
9. Use contest to capture new members
10. Educate Your Readers
Special thanks to all those involved
