This is the Cover Page slide which is displayed while the meeting participants are gathering. It remains displayed through opening comments. (after everyone is seated) Good (morning) / (afternoon) my name is David Smith, some of you know me and some of you are meeting me for the first time. I have been tasked to investigate the options of social media for improving Compass Technologies presence in the Internet community, helping us to improve the recognition of the unique skills and technology that we have to offer our clients. Brand recognition, be it a product or service is important to the continued success of our company. Addition this will provide more opportunities to provide greater service to our clients by helping them with greater recognition of their products and services.
Today’s presentation covers the topics shown here. The purpose of this presentations is to provide information regarding Social Media so that we as a company can make the appropriate decision regarding Compass Technologies’ participation in this phenomenon that has taken the Internet by storm.
Here are two definitions found in Wikipedia So what does this mean? Social Media provides a means and method of communication with the general public as well as users of our services. The key here is the term “user-generated content.” User-generated content is a whole plethora of things; ideas, opinions, likes, dislikes, improvements of products or services, enhancements to name a few.
This slide shows the various types of Social Media. Short Commercials (30 Seconds) can be posted on YouTube and sites like Facebook. Initially there would be small impact; however, as knowledge of our postings increase we could easily reach hundreds of thousands of people. While we are a B2B business, and would invite past and future clients to our postings, the fact that someone who is from a client company finds our posts, could lead to more clients. An important thing to remember is that posting to these sites does not cost.
A major difference between traditional or standard Internet medias is that it allows you to interact with the information instead of simply presenting you with the information.
More visitors to our website has the potential for more clients which would result in more profit.
This figure shows what a typical Social Media Campaign entails.
This slide shows the most common Social Media sites and the types of activities associated with them.
Once it is operational the IT department is basically finished, maintenance is minimal like most of the website functions, unless some reconfiguration is needed. There is another side to Social Media, “Posting” and “Responsiveness”
Once Social Media actions are initiated it becomes necessary for someone to be responsible for the postings. The position of Social Media Coordinator will need to be established and staffed. As Social Media activity progresses and expands addition staffing will be required.
These are the benefit to our company
I recommend that we implement utilization of Social Media on our website as soon as possible.
Gentlemen and Ladies this concludes the presentation are there any questions?
