  42. 42. MAIN SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNELS Concentrate on one account at a time and do it properly; however, you should also reserve your brand name in other accounts. Initial: Later: • Facebook Page • SlideShare • LinkedIn • YouTube • Blog • Google+ • Twitter • Pinterest
  43. 43. Growing your community The process of finding out what kind of content is valuable to your community can take a long time.
  45. 45. GOALS • What are you trying to achieve? • What resources do you have? • How will you know you are being successful?
  46. 46. Basecamp LINKING BACK TO LANDING PAGE The aim of of all social media activity is influence decisions, or take action. Landing page Give people reasons to link back to your content and site. By cross-linking between social media services you increase exposure and improve search results.

  48. 48. What kind of content should we create?
  49. 49. THEMATIC CONTENT SCHEDULE Some things can be planned for (e.g. seasonal events), but otherwise it is fairly pointless to try and create specific content too far ahead. Instead share the work amongst colleagues based around themes. Appoint a Community Manager to nudge contributors now and again. Here is our 1/3 suggestion: Daily Diary (interesting things the company has been up to: new product launches, recruits, etc) Strategic Entertaining (useful & funny content related to your industry) (content that is designed to get people to take action on specific goals and build thought leadership)
  50. 50. EXPERIMENTING Innocent Drinks Communities Manager: • Social media is at a basic level just talking to people in a natural way • We have always encouraged people to get in touch (even on packaging) • Learning as we go, and willingness to admit to cock ups • Experimenting with ideas and find what the right mix of content is
