Editor's Notes

  • 36 years in education, blog niche Catholic education, data supplied by Technorati CiB –Dryden town of 8000, only CiB Canada, & CiB Ontario had more visits. Data by Google
  • Simply put, social media is a conversation, allowing people to connect online -- to create, share, and comment on content such as: News Photos Video It can be used for compelling reasons – such as support for causes, disaster relief, as well as enhancing a club’s public image and help it attract members. A very powerful communication tool that breaks down the walls between people around the world. It’s all about your Rotary story.
  • Social media is a communication tool that lets you add your voice to the conversation.
  • You can add value to the conversation by participating and telling the Rotary story. That attracts people to want to know more and be a part of Rotary.
  • Rotary Voices is a blog Project Showcase is a new tool for Rotarians
  • The challenge: we’ve never collected this before; our estimates are largely based on anecdotal information. Casting our net wide. This application marks the first step in the new model encouraging Rotarian-generated content: Any member of the Rotary family can login and add a service project The interface will be in the 9 Rotary languages Rotarians can post their projects in any language; they are not limited to the 9 “official” languages. Any visitor can “like” or “share” a project on their Facebook wall. All of the data lives @ www.rotary.org Really touches on 2 tenets of the strategic plan: Enhance Public Image and Awareness and Focus and increase humanitarian service
  • Rotary Showcase allows any authenticated member of the Rotary family to post information about a service project with pictures, video and participating clubs. While Rotary Showcase will reside on rotary.org, users will also have the option to update their Facebook status with their Rotary Showcase projects. This is the landing page on Rotary.org This page has: Featured projects: Staff will review and select completed projects to feature at the top of the page – but any member of the Rotary family can post any project; RI approval is not required. Project Showcase also has Projects can be filtered by category (the 6 areas of focus, polio, new generations, vocational service or other), country, foundation, status (open/closed) The Impact Tracker will eventually be dynamic, calculating the aggregate impact of money raised, number of volunteers and volunteer hours and the estimated value of in-kind donations
  • If the user has a Facebook account and gives permission, then project updates will be posted to Facebook status: When project is first posted When any updates are made, e.g. add photos or video, member joins a project, impact data is added
  • Platform: WordPress Submissions from Rotarians are welcomed and encouraged. Share your story! Email blog@rotary.org for more information or to send a submission. Contributor guidelines are at http://rotaryinternationalblog.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/contributorguidelines_final.pdf
  • With over 173,000 Fans on Facebook, Rotary is sharing its story to new audiences. Many posts drive traffic directly to rotary.org
  • Definition of hashtag: The # symbol, called a hashtag, is used to mark keywords or topics in a Tweet. It was created by Twitter users as a way to categorize messages. Hashtags: Categorizing Tweets by Keyword People use the hashtag symbol # before relevant keywords (no spaces) in their Tweet to categorize those Tweets and help them show more easily in Twitter Search.  Clicking on a hashtagged word in any message shows you all other Tweets in that category. Hashtags can occur anywhere in the Tweet – at the beginning, middle, or end. Hashtagged words that become very popular are often Trending Topics.
  • Together, with clubs, districts, individual Rotarians, and family of Rotary – our voice is loud.
  • Panelists will now talk about some of the ways they use social media to strengthen Rotary and their club.
  • The last social media webinars were in October and November
  • A guide featured in The Rotarian magazine and regional magazine about two years ago. www.rotary.org/RIdocuments/en_pdf/global_outlook_1011_en.pdf Panelists will now talk about some of the ways they use social media to strengthen Rotary and their club.

  • For John Borst
  • For John Borst Start bottom up: Sources WordPress can be free or can pay for theme and/or hosting. WordPress is the CMS product of choice – more choices. Key reason SM is because permits comments – replies; newspapers copied. Discuss each type of content –show examples (a) Rotary Voices, (b) 5550opinions –Websites article; ( c ) Commonweal – Many DG’s have blogs as info stories; fewer op eds; have not found discussion initiators… Question of local community – be a community blog and integrate Rotary with it. Include pictures – do not go overboard. Use/insert pullquotes
  • For John Borst Rotary made up of business & service professionals – this is the place for Rotarians to be. So join both your profession groups & Rotary groups. You can start and moderate a group. This is only SM where worth while to do B2B marketing- plug that Rotary should advertise. Other sites are B2C. Note: More info about e-clubs at http://www.rotary.org/en/Members/RunningADistrict/membershipanddevelopment/Pages/eclubs.aspx
  • For John Borst 1st quarter of 2012 Pinterest took off; explain CU/aggregation; SHOW EXAMPLES On Net , do quick pin . Emphasize need for pictures …on all social media FB especially & now Pinterest…Thumbnails as in ClubRunner not good enough. Must put larger picture into story. If Chrome doesn’t Pin picture try Firefox./IE
  • For John Borst – his last slide and then it switches to Simone [publisher] Let you content do the marketing- indirect ; [content] e-newsletters, websites, & blogs are the base content of SM, pictures are content; context as NB as content[Gen C] means Generation “Connect” – inclusive of all ages, genders; [Language] Social media is a business world all its own with its own language CU Content Curation, UX User experience, SMB small business; also metaphor for learning– follow SM at Zite, join or monitor SM groups at Linkedin etc [measure] study, analyze your follow, like, visits, links, data – listen in; [marathon] very slow process – think long term – no gaps [face] involve all members, think of your club/district as a small business… don’t go crazy – think smart (engagement, low $ cost – high involvement, emotional, repeat cost,) Think mobile Rotary does with newsletters
