  4. 4. Social media need a plan<br />Josh Bernoff of Forrester writes:In any other business endeavor we start by figuring out what we want to accomplish. Social technologies are not magic.

Do you have partners that already have an online presence where your voice would be welcomed ?<br />Source:<br />

  11. 11. POST method: A systematic approach to social strategy<br />P is People. Don’t start a social strategy until you know the capabilities of your audience. If you’re targeting college students, use social networks. If you’re reaching out business travelers, consider ratings and reviews. <br />O is objectives. Pick one. Are you starting an application to listen to your customers, or to talk with them? To support them, or to energize your best customers to evangelize others? Or are you trying to collaborate with them? Decide on your objective before you decide on a technology. Then figure out how you will measure it.<br />S is Strategy. Strategy here means figuring out what will be different after you’re done. Do you want a closer, two-way relationship with your best customers? Do you want to get people talking about your products? Do you want a permanent focus group for testing product ideas and generating new ones? Imagine you succeed. How will things be different afterwards? Imagine the endpoint and you’ll know where to begin.<br />T is Technology. A community. A wiki. A blog or a hundred blogs. Once you know your people, objectives, and strategy, then you can decide with confidence. Source:<br />
