  1. 2. Nicola Peate Keep Britain Tidy
  2. 3. “ Whatever happened to the Keep Britain Tidy campaign?” <ul><ul><ul><li>Our aim - get Keep Britain Tidy back on the digital map and increase our online visibility </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Social media gives us a voice to directly address our “customers”. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Social media has changed the way we work across all departments at Keep Britain Tidy </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>We have raised our profile and empowered people to become “brand ambassadors” </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>People trust other people – not brands </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Social media now central to our future campaigns </li></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 4. Our Strategy <ul><ul><ul><li>We are not trying to sell commercially but instead spread our message and get other people spreading our message. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Social media is not the place for hard sell – even of ideas. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Research your competitors – where can you fit? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Target people – don’t wait to be found! </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Don’t assume people will be interested in what you have to say YOU are interested in what THEY have to say. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Act as a service to people - they can “use” us so eventually we are able to use them. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>We had to listen and tailor our strategy around what we learned. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 5. Social Media at Keep Britain Tidy
  5. 6. Facebook <ul><ul><ul><li>Gathering new “fans” – Word of mouth is crucial. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Encouraging interaction through various techniques: </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Varied content, including pictures, videos, questions, statements, links etc </li></ul><ul><li>Previews / facebook exclusives </li></ul><ul><li>Show them that you value their responses </li></ul><ul><li>Lots of praise! </li></ul>
  6. 7. Facebook <ul><ul><ul><li>Facebook Insights – A really useful tool for learning about your fans. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>It’s not about youth – our average Facebook fan is female between 25 – 34. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Can be an option for organisations where they cannot update content as regularly. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  7. 8. Twitter <ul><ul><ul><li>You do not have to rely on people finding you as you do on Facebook. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Search out people talking about your product / issue and respond to them. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>We search out the terms ‘Keep Britain Tidy’ and ‘litter’ along with any current campaign issues so we can respond. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Try to appeal to the majority of your followers – niche tweets will be off putting. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li> is a useful site as it tells you who has stopped following you – if you get a lot in one week look by through your tweets and try to assess why. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>On twitter more than facebook people are more likely to act as “Brand Ambassadors” – including celebrities. </li></ul></ul></ul>
