  13. 13. Your Questions, Answered<br />Questions from your registration survey<br />
  14. 14. Your Questions:<br />How often do you recommend updating the blood center Facebook page? <br />Test and learn (keep the shop open and active but DON’T SPAM<br />How do you keep your audience engaged on your social media page, when the person doing social media has time constraints & can't log-in every day? <br />Let’s discuss!<br />How often do you monitor your Facebook page? <br />Daily is a must<br />How do you handle it when people post pictures on your Facebook page? <br />Depends on the content<br />How (and how much) do you monitor mentions of your blood center on other people's Facebook pages/Youtube/MySpace etc?<br />These are conversation starters, don’t you want to talk?<br />@LuckyRenee<br />
  15. 15. Your Questions:<br />Managing live posts that mention the competition<br />Consider these conversation starters. What would you say if you over heard these comments at a public event?<br />Managing negative comments, especially those that are tied to Google maps<br />Follow your traditional customer service response plan. If you don’t have one, create one BEFORE engaging in social!<br />@LuckyRenee<br />
  16. 16. Your Questions:<br />We have multiple recruiters that want to have/manage their pages for their territories. This would then cause multiple pages for our one organization and a challenge with consistent messaging and branding. How do other blood centers handle this? <br />By creating and providing official tools and best practices you can help ensure consistency across pages<br />You can find the red Cross chapter guide here: http://socialmediagovernance.com/policies.php<br />Who manages the social media program? Which department/team member? <br />Depends on who is best at engaging and communication about your brand<br />Regardless input should be given by all teams on content COLLABORATE!<br />How do blood centers handle creating events for each of their individual blood drives?<br />Suggestion: Facebook events and small highly targeted ad buys<br />@LuckyRenee<br />
  17. 17. Your Questions:<br />How can we use social media to reach our hospital and partner organizations? <br />Now you’re talkin! Become active in their channels and position yourself as an industry expert (fan/brand/stuff)<br />Perhaps plan joint webinars and live-streamed events<br />How do we motivate our content creators to embrace social media when their desire is limited and they have significant time constraints?<br />First know that there is now time rule, but you do get what you give. Second, understand that the deep relationship building nature of social makes the conversations that happen hear much more lucrative.<br />@LuckyRenee<br />
  18. 18. Your Questions:<br />Which social media platforms make the most sense for what we do as blood centers?<br />Fish where the fishes are!<br />DO NOT get distracted by the 5 zillion channels and tools.<br />I'm curious to see how other blood centers promote their social media pages. I'd also like to hear about any successful efforts to increase fans/followers and participation. <br />Let’s talk numbers!<br />In real life, would you rather have 10 really good friend you could rely on or 100 friend that never answer your call?<br />@LuckyRenee<br />
