  • It is constantly changingDifference between sm and website: website is one-way conversation (even with blogs = limited interactivity), sm is two way communication and real-time
  • Biggest social shift since the invention of the telephoneListening becomes more important than speaking, Two sided communication: not the traditional broadcasting one way approach, but giving customers a opportunity to have a voice, and give your business the opportunity to listen, individuals within an organisation connect with individual out of the organisation=> making companies more personal and approachable
  • It is expanding the ways and means of which businesses can be closer to their customers, how does it do that:
  • Builds awareness: by engaging on a personal level, people find out what you and your company does
  • Increases visibility: it levels the playing field as small businesses have the same tools then corporates; sm interactions are real-time hence information spreads faster
  • Extending your offline community into the online world, possibility of targeting different segments, also social networks facilitates building communities as humans want to belong to groups, another way of connecting with like-minded people

  • Shift worldwidereadership of newspapers all over the world is declining:We no longer search for news, the news find to us
  • Social media has changed how the press operates as well. Social media has lifted a barrier to entry: You no longer have to wait for the press to pick up your story but you can broadcast/publish yourselfPress uses social media to find stories and validating stories through trusted relationships (e.g. #eqnz)
  • Cost: it is not free and not easy, you get back what you put in, needs proper resourcing
  • Always need to evaluate your progress & results: tangibles like increased website traffic can be measured as long as its online you can measure it
  • Alignment: the social media strategy needs to be aligned with business strategy
  • Consistency across the different channels or sites- dont want a disjointed campaign but leverage of the different channels e.g. Blog & twitterBut also consistent engagement: time mgmt, set aside time for rt, comments etcConsistent Personality: Voice also should be positive, same rules than in face-to-face communication: never send anything you wouldnt say in person
  • so react to negative & positive feedback: Ability to publicly solve a problem shows that you are compassionate and caring company,What is purpose of tool, e.g.

  • Youtube: Second biggest search engine after googleGood for SEO as videos rank high, 200mil videos watched daily
  • As with everything it is important to measure progress and results, we recommend using analytics tools such as google analytics or catalystsonar to measure website traffic etc.
  • Once you have a certain amount of engagement you will find logging on to each individual tool cumbersome. you can automate some of the processes and managing the volume of interaction by using aggregation tools such as hootsuite or tweetdeck, thus working more efficiently ….You might doubt the relevance of the tweets you are seeing on the screen…
