  39. 39. Online awareness - Offline events
  40. 40. Positioning and simplicity make it an ideal choice
  41. 41. So, how cheap is StayClassy?
  42. 42. Blog
  43. 43. Blog with a purpose…
  44. 44. Blog <ul><li>We recommend the Aux to create a Blog by following these steps: </li></ul><ul><li>Determine the goals to stay focused: increase awareness of Rady CH and bring in new members to the Auxiliary </li></ul><ul><li>Identify a blogger(s) among Foundation and Auxiliary volunteers. Develop a recognition plan for blogger </li></ul><ul><li>Write guidelines to protect confidentiality of patients and staff and to project a positive image of the Hospital </li></ul><ul><li>Develop an editorial process, but don’t make it too constrictive </li></ul><ul><li>Listen to what is being talked about in other similar blogs </li></ul>
  45. 45. Blog <ul><li>Prominently place links to the places in RCH and Foundation Web sites on how to become a volunteer or make a donation </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure you encourage activity and interaction for community building and feedback/insights </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Periodically post a short survey with 3-5 questions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Allow people to leave comments </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Insert a chat or a blog community </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Make it an objective to answer or address some comments and questions left by readers </li></ul><ul><li>Place links to interesting and useful kid’s health articles and information or other Web sites (ex. Rady Children’s Specialists of San Diego) </li></ul>
  46. 46. Blog <ul><li>Explore the possibility of starting an on-line fundraising campaign (ex. ChipIn). Some advantages are: it lets you set up a different campaign page, you can post videos, comments by donators can be displayed, badge is viral (you can take it to other blogs) </li></ul><ul><li>Develop a Marketing Plan for the Blog: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Continually participate and post comments in other popular blogs with similar target audiences to increase traffic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Include it prominently in Web sites, Facebook, MySpace, and all printed communications, including business cards </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Occasionally Include link to Blog in tweets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Include subscription with RSS and via e-mail </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Make sure you can track all activity and review statistics periodically </li></ul></ul>
  47. 47. YouTube
  48. 48. <ul><li>One of the most popular Social Media. The number of visitors increased from 75 million to 110 million just last year. </li></ul>
  49. 49. Create a YouTube channel for the Hospital, the Foundation and the Auxiliary and post and tag all videos
  50. 50. <ul><li>We recommend purchasing a Flip Video camcorder ($150) ( ). Have volunteers and Unit members shoot videos that are short (about 2 minutes) and have a theme. Recommended themes: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Chidren’s/families’ stories </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Volunteer experiences. These can also be themed according to the different “benefits” of contributing with the Hospital (feeling good, saving lifes near you, friendship/camaraderie, having fun) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Videos should allow people to interact: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Direct viewers to Web sites, Blog, Facebook, Flickr </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Allow sharing and reviewing of videos </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Use Facebook to distribute videos among members and Tag the members so that it will appear in their profile </li></ul><ul><li>Market YouTube channel in Web sites, Blog, Twitter, and any printed material, including business cards </li></ul>
  51. 51. Flickr
  52. 52. <ul><li>Improve the Flickr Account, more pictures of events </li></ul><ul><li>Try to promote members to add pictures on their own which will increase commitment </li></ul><ul><li>Lead members to share their own pictures from events </li></ul><ul><li>Tag keywords. Flickr is good for SEO, helping images rank higher on Google Images and building in-bound links. </li></ul><ul><li>Add Contacts on Flickr and should promote members to leave Testimonials </li></ul><ul><li>Market the account in Web page, Blog, Twitter, and any printed material, including business cards </li></ul>
