Editor's Notes

  • Photos don’t tell a story. I don’t know if these are volunteers, employees, paid help? Be careful with your visuals. They should tell a story.
  • Call to action? Are you targeting employees or customers with these posts? Not clear.
  • No clear CTA

    No amplification

    Limited engagement
  • Add
  • Lot a talk about LinkedIn—no one is really reading, only sales people, etc.
  • Add
  • Add
  • Post photos that best captured the mission—follow @habitatforhumanity and tag #habitatphotocontest

    The winner was awarded a spot as a volunteer at the 31st Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project in Dallas, TX.
  • 137,000+ pics on IG with #onlyinmn tag
  • Asked four influencers/travel bloggers/IGers to each day 10 days to visit one part of the state and document their exp via IG.
  • Periscope users shared their livestreams on Twitter 1.5 million times from March through May 22 (1,510,709, to be exact)
    Meerkat livestream URLs were shared on Twitter 1,521,424 times during the same period
    According to data from Nuvi
    For reference there woud be 15 BILLION tweets sent during the same two-month period.
    Meerkat’s total brand awareness is at 9% and Periscope’s is only at 6%.
    Brands are a little skittish—big risk; brand guidelines; anytime there’s live video involved
  • HOWEVER, brands are using Periscope and Meerkat to connect with customers and give them behind-the-scenes looks.
  • Or, using it with contests to gin up awareness

    Mtn Dew using VR and Oculus Rift to give fans the experience of snowboarding or skateboarding with their favorite boarders (in Brooklyn in 2014 and at Vail a few weeks ago at US Snowboarding Champs)
  • Oladipo used Glass to document his NBA Draft experience. First-person storytelling—big opportunity for brands as the tech gets better in the years ahead (Glass was recently shelved—but most think they’ll be back)
  • And finally, a GREAT use of VR here from Victory Motorcyles using it at a trade show in CHI to allow people to ride a bike—many for the first time.

    Nearly 300 people took Victory’s Oculus Rift drive through the desert

    92% of them had never tried the technology before and 63% had never even heard of it.

    A key stat: 75% of the participants had never ridden a Victory motorcycle.
  • General Mills using Oculus Rift to show millennials more about the GM corporate campus (tours)
  • Many companies are still using LinkedIn this way—not that there’s a ton wrong with this in small doses.
  • It is not uncommon for many corporate executives’ LinkedIn profiles to look like this. Sorry, Medtronic.
  • I couldn’t even find Omar Ishrak, the Medtronic CEO on LinkedIn (meanwhile, he is tweeting)
  • Smart: UPS is promoting content created by its internal “influencers” who are publishing on LinkedIn (Alan Gershenhorn – Chief Commercial Officer at UPS)
  • Smart: Target using Jeff Jones personal LinkedIn account to share company messages (in a more personal way) during a time of difficulty/responding to a big news story.
  • Smart: Companies using CEOs to share company messages to reach employees in a different way.
  • Smart: Company CEOs like AmFam’s Jack Salzwedel using LinkedIn to publish and share views to reach customers and employees (few CEOs doing this)
