Running Social CampaignsAddress the use of campaigns during the planning process. Then save yourself time and stay compliant with platform rules like the ones Facebook enforces by using apps that can manage campaigns like sweepstakes and giveaways. Here are a few favorites that I’ve used:WooboxShortstackConstant Contact Social CampaignsThese apps offer easy set up, operation and reporting for your campaigns from photo contests to giveaways and sweepstakes. They have free and low cost versions.
I like to say it’s all in the mix. Different tools can talk to us in different ways via email, a website or a text message. Maybe we use the services of a VA to get the daily work done. Having different touch points gives you access when you need it and it frees you up from having to constantly interrupt your day to check-in. For example Skype and FB can be connected for messages. If you’re managing social for clients, this is important because you only have so much bandwidth in a day. Plus by using different tools, you are not relying on one source in case it goes down or just goes away. Look at some of the changes to the Twitter API and how it changed some of the apps you use.Remember to refine the amount of notifications you get. For example, do you need a notification for every single FB like on a page or every new Twitter follower? You can turn these features off and keep your email from interrupting you so much. Some dashboards like Sprout Social will just alert you when there’s a reply so you can do a little reputation management in the event of a complaint or smart alec comment.
