ACHACH
But, WHY?
CVCTC
ACHACH
Ask yourself: What do you want from social?
• More volunteers?
• Employee engagement?
• Better brand reputation?
CVCTC
ACHACH
Really, what you want is:
• Web traffic
• Likes/Comments/Shares
• Impressions
CVCTC
ACHACH
So, what do you do?
CVCTC
ACHACH
Use Facebook ads as a lever to reach
employees
CVCTC
ACHACH
Use LinkedIn publishing as an executive
storytelling tool
CVCTC
ACHACH CVCTC

Jones is actively
engaging with
commenters.
Other “influencers”
are commenting.
Other execs are
commenting.

Use long-form content and vibrant visuals
to create emotional bonds

ACHACH
Take advantage of trends.

Ideas for corporate volunteer teams:
• Do you have a good handle on how much UCG your
employees/volunteers are generating now?
• What about allowing employee volunteers to
“takeover” your corporate Instagram account for the
day during volunteer events?
CVCTC

#2
Live social video: Is it a viable
communications tool?
CVCTC
ACHACH CVCTC
ACHACH CVCTC
ACHACH CVCTC
ACHACH
Ideas for corporate volunteer teams:
• What about producing your own interview series live
from volunteer events?
• What about broadcasting volunteer rallies so far-
flung and virtual employees can participate and feel
involved?
• What about live streaming unique volunteer perks so
even more volunteers feel engaged? (U.S. Bank
folks: What about a tour of the new US Bank
Stadium?)

#3
The NEXT generation of wearables/VR will
significantly impact storytelling
CVCTC
ACHACH CVCTC
ACHACH CVCTC
ACHACH CVCTC
ACHACH CVCTC
ACHACH
Ideas for corporate volunteer teams:
• Could you orchestrate virtual experiences of unique
volunteer events as a way to recruit new volunteers?
• Could you use virtual reality and wearable tools to
tell your volunteerism story in a different way—to a
younger audience?

Ideas for corporate volunteer teams:
• Identify your star volunteers—and help them tell
their volunteerism stories via LinkedIn.
• Identify one key executive with a passion for
volunteering—help him/her tell their volunteerism
story via LinkedIn.
• Work with your employee communications team to
merchandise these posts internally—encourage
employees to read/comment/share.

Corporate Volunteerism & Social Media: Trends, Tips and Tools

Editor's Notes

  1. Photos don’t tell a story. I don’t know if these are volunteers, employees, paid help? Be careful with your visuals. They should tell a story.
  2. Call to action? Are you targeting employees or customers with these posts? Not clear.
  3. No clear CTA No amplification Limited engagement
  4. Add
  5. Lot a talk about LinkedIn—no one is really reading, only sales people, etc.
  6. Add
  7. Add
  8. Post photos that best captured the mission—follow @habitatforhumanity and tag #habitatphotocontest The winner was awarded a spot as a volunteer at the 31st Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project in Dallas, TX.
  9. 137,000+ pics on IG with #onlyinmn tag
  10. Asked four influencers/travel bloggers/IGers to each day 10 days to visit one part of the state and document their exp via IG.
  11. Periscope users shared their livestreams on Twitter 1.5 million times from March through May 22 (1,510,709, to be exact) Meerkat livestream URLs were shared on Twitter 1,521,424 times during the same period According to data from Nuvi For reference there woud be 15 BILLION tweets sent during the same two-month period. Meerkat’s total brand awareness is at 9% and Periscope’s is only at 6%. Brands are a little skittish—big risk; brand guidelines; anytime there’s live video involved http://contently.com/strategist/2015/07/06/the-explosive-growth-of-online-video-in-5-charts/?utm_source=TCSdaily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=online_video_growth
  12. HOWEVER, brands are using Periscope and Meerkat to connect with customers and give them behind-the-scenes looks.
  13. Or, using it with contests to gin up awareness
  14. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eq1dmuUXogQ Mtn Dew using VR and Oculus Rift to give fans the experience of snowboarding or skateboarding with their favorite boarders (in Brooklyn in 2014 and at Vail a few weeks ago at US Snowboarding Champs)
  15. Oladipo used Glass to document his NBA Draft experience. First-person storytelling—big opportunity for brands as the tech gets better in the years ahead (Glass was recently shelved—but most think they’ll be back)
  16. And finally, a GREAT use of VR here from Victory Motorcyles using it at a trade show in CHI to allow people to ride a bike—many for the first time. Nearly 300 people took Victory’s Oculus Rift drive through the desert 92% of them had never tried the technology before and 63% had never even heard of it. A key stat: 75% of the participants had never ridden a Victory motorcycle.
  17. General Mills using Oculus Rift to show millennials more about the GM corporate campus (tours)
  18. http://www.startribune.com/general-mills-recruits-millennials-with-gopro-goggle-tour/327721891/
  19. Many companies are still using LinkedIn this way—not that there’s a ton wrong with this in small doses.
  20. It is not uncommon for many corporate executives’ LinkedIn profiles to look like this. Sorry, Medtronic.
  21. I couldn’t even find Omar Ishrak, the Medtronic CEO on LinkedIn (meanwhile, he is tweeting)
  22. Smart: UPS is promoting content created by its internal “influencers” who are publishing on LinkedIn (Alan Gershenhorn – Chief Commercial Officer at UPS)
  23. Smart: Target using Jeff Jones personal LinkedIn account to share company messages (in a more personal way) during a time of difficulty/responding to a big news story.
  24. Smart: Companies using CEOs to share company messages to reach employees in a different way.
  25. Smart: Company CEOs like AmFam’s Jack Salzwedel using LinkedIn to publish and share views to reach customers and employees (few CEOs doing this)
