  14. 14. Framework For Social Media<br />IF YOU JUST HAVE 5 MINUTES A DAY <br />“Sam Abraham”<br />The framework for social media management consists of 3 essentials: Listen, Act and Engage. <br />Listen, being the passive act of monitoring what people are saying about your brand or product. In social media tools like Actionly, a San Francisco social media monitoring and “listening” platform, allows businesses to track keywords across various social media channels like Facebook Fan pages, Twitter accounts, YouTube, Blogs and Flickr. The platform’s integration with Google Analytics, means users can track their revenue stream and receive actionable insights to hopefully target and grow their social media campaigns.<br />Act, the next step is reaching out to users or clients and responding to them accordingly whether to thank them for their mentions or respond to questions or serve as customer service. <br />Engage, is about understanding your community on Facebook, Twitter, etc. and providing them with useful information, tips, blogs, videos etc to truly connect with them. It also consists of the overall social media strategy – for example determining how to grow your audience or producing viral content.<br />
  15. 15. Social Networking Do’s and Don’ts<br />EXCERPT FROM THE NEXT WEB<br />Do Be Informative <br />According to research conducted by emarketer, consumers expect more than entertainment when connecting with a brand online; they expect incentives, like offers and coupons. A great number of consumers though (46%), replied that they look for something more substantial than offers just targeted to online fans, such as tips and information about product and services. Posting simple to follow how-tos and useful tips can prove much more effective than posting a link to a specific product or service. Ask your customers to share their tips and personal experience with your products or services in the comments or through tweets marked with a specific hashtag.<br />
  16. 16. Social Networking Do’s and Don’ts<br />EXCERPT FROM THE NEXT WEB<br />Don’t Be A Parrot<br />Information overload and repetitive content are two of the top reasons a consumer chooses to stop following a brand online. Frequent “one note” updates can be a major turn off for your fans. Facebook users are more intolerant to frequent updates than repetitive content, with 44% of them unliking brands because they post too often, while Twitter users seem to be more forgiving of highly frequent tweets but more strict with boring tweets with 52% naming repetition as a deal breaker. Try to mix it up and even if you need to repeat an update to promote a current offer or call to action for a project, make sure you put a new twist each time.<br />
  17. 17. Social Networking Do’s and Don’ts<br />EXCERPT FROM THE NEXT WEB<br />DO Make a Tradition <br />Families bond over holiday traditions and big family dinners, so bond with your customers by establishing little online traditions you’ll share on specific days. For DKNY the tradition is its weekly appointment with its followers to watch Gossip Girl. Build your tradition around a theme relevant to your product or service and invite your customers to participate via tweets, comments or photo sharing.<br />
  18. 18. Social Networking Do’s and Don’ts<br />EXCERPT FROM THE NEXT WEB<br />DON’T Neglect Replies. <br />Social media is not about broadcasting, but about conversation. Connect with your fans and engage in conversations, if you feel it is not an issue you can resolve though tweets or Facebook comments, don’t hesitate to transfer the conversation to a private space by providing the customer with the right telephone number or by requesting his/her contact details.<br />
  19. 19. Social Networking Do’s and Don’ts<br />EXCERPT FROM THE NEXT WEB<br />DO Call for Action <br />Ask your fans to Like your pics, prompt them to share your content and thank them when they do. Popular YouTube star Michael Buckley never hesitates to remind his viewers for a “thumbs up” and thank them afterwards. The key lies in asking in a clear way yet in a conversational tone, highlighting that the important thing is the feedback you get not the number of “Likes”.<br />
  20. 20. Social Networking Do’s and Don’ts<br />EXCERPT FROM THE NEXT WEB<br />DON’T Rely On Text Alone <br />Keep some variety and spark up conversation with the help of images and videos. Glamour Greeceproduces weekly videos titled “Star Therapy” on Animoto, while hosting a weekly Astrology Q&A with Glamour’s Star Therapist via text.<br />

  22. 22. Online backlashes seem to be difficult to avoid, so it’s best to read other brands’ lessons and be prepared. Try to be pro-active addressing quickly whatever isolated complaints come to your attention and think about the way you will handle negative comments and replies.</li></ul>DON’T Be Impolite <br />Introduce the person that represents the brand online and always showcase your contact information along with a telephone number. Make it personal to get personal, there is no other way.<br />
