    12. 12. Why a Facebook Group? • Can be invitation only • Set approval restrictions • Sharing can be limited to those in the group • More private • Updating a group means users get a notification but not in their newsfeed • Group members receive a notification when another member interacts with the group

Vanity URL reinforces your brand 5. Build a community to market to, but engage with it 6. Target updates to a specific country, region, city But beware

    16. 16. Five mistakes to avoid 1. Not putting enough time into maintaining the page and monitoring dialogue 2. Not answering questions and addressing issues 3. Taking a “brand” tone instead of a human tone 4. Underestimating the power of the crowd and word of mouth 5. Not promoting your Facebook page elsewhere (more to come...) A Facebook page is a place to listen to those interested in your offer Ask questions, learn what people are doing and what they need It’s a place to offer free advice and help build real relationships
    17. 17. Promote it • Newsletters (electronic or print) • E-mail signature • Signage • Business cards and other printed materials • Online social networks and forums, such as LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. • Radio, online or print ads • Website or blog
    18. 18. Newsfeed optimization Less then 4% of users come back to a page after they „like‟ it Reach them through the News Feed through status updates Facebook decides which content each user sees Just because you write an update, doesn’t mean all your fans see it 199 out of 200 likes or comments are in the News Feed, not the page Around 70% of fans on average will NOT see your status updates. Focus on News Feed Optimization and building out your Facebook Page

    22. 22. Twitter for business A listening device Use #hashtags Use it as a customer service tool Promote upcoming events Drive traffic to website or blog Offer tips or offers to followers Use shortened links to track clicks (bit.ly)
    23. 23. Beware the #fail
    24. 24. LinkedIn100+ million members
    25. 25. Start with a Personal Profile • Connect with business contacts • Generate leads from decision makers • Join in discussions and create groups • Find new employees – research prospective staff • Integrate updates from your own blog or Twitter feed • Ask questions and provide answers – when providing answers make them personal and show a genuine interest • Tap clients and ex-clients, former employers to write a personal recommendation
    26. 26. Company page Companies can create a page on LinkedIn which people can follow for updates and staff can be connected to from their own profiles. • Add keywords to the description • Add company website or blog to the group to drive traffic • Keep group members updated with weekly or monthly roundups • Connect people with each other via introductions • Host an event and invite people from LinkedIn • Source and recruit candidates via job adverts and networking • A platform to share white papers and educational resources
    27. 27. LinkedIn Groups • Great way to create a community • Create discussion posts or featured posts • Groups rarely grow on their own until they reach 100 members so you will have to do some leg work by sharing across all channels • Make sure the group is of interest to a significant number • You can advertise a group – how much do you value members? • A place to share whitepapers and educational resources • Downside: for the „admins‟ groups are time consuming
