  5. 8TWITTER DO’s for  DO develop an objective and a strategy for engaging in Twitter.  DO create a brand profile with a custom background image, company logo as the profile’s photo, and include contact information of customer relation department, any employees who are tweeting on behalf of the brand  DO provide value for your followers  DO listen and monitor conversations /ask questions/learn about your consumers  DO tweet transparently. Disclose whether the handle is maintained by one individual or a team of people within the company.  DO protect against brand jacking. Consider registering variations of your brand (i.e. Nike, Nikeshoes, etc)  DO create a Twitter schedule. Define the roles and responsibilities internally among your team members.  DO Track metrics and conversation trends
  6. 8TWITTER Don’ts for  Don’t just broadcast! Provide real-time engagement with the brand to your followers, including contributing new posts, replying to followers, or ‘retweeting’ their posts.  Don’t sound like a press release  Don’t automatic, be conversational! Avoid setting up autofeeds (i.e. Twitterfeed)  Don’t auto respond when someone follows you  Don’t protect your handle. Unless you have a real business reason, a tendency to be insulting, or something to hide.  Don’t spam with constant links to your Web site, in tweets/DMs  Don’t panic when someone tweets negative comments about your brand. Depending on the comment, you may address the issue publicly or direct message them.  Don’t feel overwhelmed! Select 15 min-intervals through out the day to tweet, reply, and retweet. •
  7. Finding your customers on Twitter ✓ Listen and monitor tweets about your brand to learn who is talking about it and what they are saying – find people who care about your brand ✓ You can dig in three main places to unearth people to follow: people’s tweets, people’s bios, and people’s locations ✓ Find the top ten people with the largest following (influencers) & share their content (RT) as much as you can before asking them to spread your own content ✓ Follow everyone who follows you in order to enable direct messaging * See handout for tools that will help you with each one of these tactics Source: “Twitterville” by Shel Israel @shelisrael

  15. My Favorite 5 Twitter Tools Twazzap: Displays a list of the most authoritative Twitter users who have tweeted about a given subject. This allows users to quickly find interesting followers worth following. It also shows popular tweets, relevant photos, hashtag clouds and subtrends, and most popular links Tweepsearch: Profile and biography search tool that allows you to find Twitter users based on keywords search (i.e. social media) and the number of followers/ friends/updates Twittergrader: Measures power and authority of the Twitter profile.

  16. Create Engage Measure
  17. Best Practices Facebook Create  Create a landing page/welcome tab for non-fans with an incentive/call-to- action in order to convert them to a fan ..  Integrate fans’ wall posts with the brands’ posts in order to encourage conversation between fans and foster a community
  18. Best Practices Facebook Create  Include a legal disclaimer on the fan page that encourages fans to respect other community members and refrain from using abusive, obscene, or defamatory language.  Integrate other web properties and Facebook Apps to enable fans to do more and spread the message about your brand.
  19. Best Practices Facebook Engage  Comment on fan posts rather than just drop a post, a link, or a picture periodically on the page is crucial in order to add value to the posts with additional information and foster conversations  Provide fans with incentives, such as coupons, contests, product/store locator app (if applicable), tips, announcements, news, and other resourceful information.
  20. Best Practices Facebook Engage  Make your fans feel special. Reward fans for participating, letting them know you are watching. Make a fan of the week, allowing fans to badge their page with something that clearly makers them as an extended member of the brand family.  Leverage celebrity endorsers/company celebrities. Brands like YoBaby Yogurt are leveraging their CEO as a celebrity who appears in videos discussing why organic food is great for one’s health, participate in live Web casts.  Provide valuable and interesting content. Post a variety of content, including photos, videos, discussion questions, posts, etc. Share your fans’ content, bloggers’ reviews of your products, etc.
  21. Best Practices Facebook Measure  Pay attention to Facebook insights. Provide fans with the most-relevant and interesting content by learning and understanding which posts are truly motivating and receive the most interactions from fans.
