  21. 21. Engaging with people
  22. 22. First, some dos & don‟ts
  23. 23. Don‟ts If you go in to a pub, you instinctively know how to behave – when it’s OK to chat to people, what to say and when to leave them well alone. Facebook has similar rules, and don’t worry, they are all pretty much common sense.• Don‟t “broadcast” your links all the time. Sometimes it’s nice just to chat rather than sell.• Don‟t ignore people. Don’t dominate the conversation, but do join other peoples’ conversations if you have something to offer.
  24. 24. Dos• Do thank people. If someone likes or shares your content, thank them!• Do post fairly often. It’s hard to have a conversation if there’s nothing to chat about. Start with a couple of posts a day - you’ll soon get a good feel for how often. If you’re a bit stuck for content, don’t post everything in one day, it’s ok to string it out with a little subtlety.• Do vary your posts. Mix it up with photos, videos, questions, opinions and of course links.• Do write “for the news feed”. Even though you are writing on your own wall, remember that most people will read your message on their own news feed. So saying things like “check out the tab on the left” doesn’t work.• Do send updates, but only for really important things. Edit page > resources > connect with people & then you can send your message. This arrives as a notification, so don’t use this too often or you will turn people off.• Do make your page as open as possible. Allow fans to post to your page, add photos, tag photos etc. This is the best way to benefit from Facebook’s viral effect, so if you don’t do this it’s just more marketing!
  25. 25. Tone of voice So, you’re still in the pub – what tone of voice should you use? The best way to imagine it is you are going for a drink after work. So you are friendly with everyone – your usual enthusiastic and lively self. But not as friendly as you would be with the mates you’ve known since school. You just don’t have the same shared experiences and references to be that familiar, particularly when it comes to humour.• Be friendly. Open, honest and considerate.• Be informal. If you have a corporate style guide, start the discussion now about how you’ll need to change the rules for social media.• Be a good host. Make people feel welcome, ensure they know enough to feel comfortable and have a few tricks up your sleeve to start the conversation going (more on that later).• DON‟T SHOUT. Besides being harder to read, online etiquette has it that CAPS is shouting• Be humorous. But stop way before you think you might be getting anywhere near the line. And use smileys just to make sure people know you are joking.
  26. 26. Ask questions• Back to the pub – it‟s easy to ignore a statement• But not so much a direct question• Tip: make your questions as edgy as you can• Type 1 – just post a question on your wall• Type 2 – Facebook Questions make polls really easy• https://www.facebook.com/questions/
  27. 27. Be topical• Time your questions to specific events• Plan for them!• Seed questions to Twitter, ask people to answer on Facebook ...
  28. 28. Express an opinion As NGBs, we know it‟s sometimes difficult to come off the fence, but there are ways:• “We are excited about Saturday‟s cup semi finals ...”• “Good luck to everyone taking part in ...”• “So proud of the volunteers picking up awards last night ...”Or going a little further• “Did you see Rooney‟s sending off? What did you think ...?”
  29. 29. Matches and competitions• Not so much a technique, but we all run high profile matches and competitions – use them to generate chat!• Photos – beforehand, from previous encounters – During and after, from the match in question• Videos – As for photos• Predictions – Ask for predications, always great for banter• Spectators – Ask for spectators to upload their photos & videos, give a prize for the best• Behind the scenes footage – interviews with players, coaches, officials, spectators?
  30. 30. Promoting your Page
  31. 31. Low- and no-cost techniques• We know you don‟t have large budgets to promote your Page• Here‟s the good news – low- and no-cost techniques are the place to start no matter what your budget!
  32. 32. Use your existing networks• Every NGB knows hundreds or thousands of people and organisations who might help with a link to your Page.• Think clubs, officials, players, coaches, leagues etc – anyone you know!• If you can reach them by email, drop them a link and ask them: – To become a fan (like your Page) – To put a link on their web site – To pass on a link to your Page via email to their networks • You will probably need you to give them a reason
  33. 33. Email is not dead yet• Contrary to what some social media types will tell you, email isn‟t dead yet. – In fact, so long as Facebook and Twitter send an email each time someone posts on your Wall or sends you a Tweet, that‟s proof enough for us that even the social networks know email still works!• So have a think about simple things you can do – Add a link to everyone‟s email signature – If you run a regular newsletter, include a section “view from Facebook” and publish the best user posts – Can you ask clubs & leagues to mention you in their regular newsletters?
  34. 34. Claim your friendly web address• There‟s an easy way you can set up a friendly web address for your Facebook Page like www.facebook.com/MiddlesexCountyFA• When you are signed in to your Facebook account, just visit this link https://www.facebook.com/username/, choose you page and add the name you‟d like.• Then start to use this address instead of the complicated one – it will make it much more likely that people will pass it on
  35. 35. Your web site• Publish a link from your web site to your Facebook Page.• This can be as simple as a text link• Or if you fancy it, try a “Like box” – this shows people looking at your site which of their friends also like your Page, and so encourages them to like it too• https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like-box/• https://www.facebook.com/EquestrianTeamGBR• Now paste the code in to your CMS
  36. 36. Measurement
  37. 37. Facebook Insights
  38. 38. What to look forBasic measures Monitor improvement• Active users • Interactions – what sort – Total of posts work best for – Unique you?• Page views – Like• Tab views – Comments• Total likes – Media types
