COBBLING
TOGETHER A
SOCIAL MEDIA
GAMEPLAN FOR
FOOD DAY MA
Presented to Tech Day Camp
By Tim Stansky
November 2012
INTRODUCTION
The purpose of this presentation is to
share the plan we used to build
cohesion and participation across
multiple platforms. This amplified the
efforts of Food Day groups across a
state based on Massachusetts’ Food
Day Media Group experience in 2012.
We did it with no budget, lots of
enthusiasm and an old New England
truism that “many hands make for light
work”.
INTEGRATION
STARTING POINTS
Pull together a core team who volunteer to manage a social media
tool that they are good at and let them be the lead to post, Tweet, Pin,
etc. We were Twitter-centric, used facebook and dabbled in Pinterest.
I wish we had “Pinned” more considering that platform’s growth at the
time. New social media channels will crop up in the future, embrace
the ones with momentum and critical mass.
Create a gmail account with your group’s affinity name as a master
email account that you will use to build a WordPress site, enroll in
social media platforms, and use to communicate as the voice of your
group. Avoid the use of an individual’s name or personal account. If
a facebook or Twitter account already exists don’t worry about it – as
long as the owner of that account is on your core team.
SAVING, SHARING & SIGNING UP
Create a Dropbox account using your new gmail account where you will
save documents, keep a Master Blogging Schedule, store
logos, photos/images, a contact list and other necessary assets. Create a
folder and you can invite members with a simple “sharing” option.
BUILD
Using the basic Microsoft Paint accessory modify the free national
Food Day logos to create simple state identities.
Build your social media tools using the gmail account you created –
Twitter, facebook, Pinterest.
FREE TOOLS AND RESOURCES
Build a WordPress site using the
gmail account you created. Add
your logos and the widgets for
the social media accounts you
created. When I built the Food
Day MA website there was no
easy widget to plug in a Pinterest
button. Many thanks to
betweenheandshe.com, I found a
VERY good post that taught me
how to add a Pinterest button to
individual posts.
INVITE WITH AUTHOR STATUS
Invite guest bloggers with different levels of
access to your WordPress site. I suggest you
offer Author status to the group at large and just
a few with Administrator or Editor access.
1.
2.
SAVING, SHARING & SIGNING UP
I saved the text of a an email
on the Dropbox that I sent to
every new guest blogger with
instructions on claiming a
date to post along with a
heads-up that they’d also
receive two separate emails
inviting them to the Dropbox
and the WordPress site. This
made the recruitment of guest
bloggers pretty easy once I
set up the system.
Email to guest bloggers:
First THANK YOU.
You should have received an invitation to
www.fooddayma.WordPress.com with Author status and an
invitation to the FoodDayMA Dropbox folder. If you’re not a
current Dropbox user and install it on your desktop we earn
more storage space. You can always uninstall it.
There’s a word document in the Dropbox named “FDMA
blogging schedule”. Add the information on the date you plan
to post the blog and the other information and SAVE your
changes.
Write and post your blog or schedule it to publish on the date
you chose. Promote your blog on the social media platforms
you frequent. If you Tweet about it please include
@FoodDayMA in the Tweet to notify us to call out the birds!
Post it on facebook, pin it on your Pinterest account, etc.
We’re here to help you with anything you need. If you’re not
comfortable with WordPress and can at least provide text and
images we can tee it up for you.
Tim Stansky
GET A PAINT BRUSH
Use your Dropbox account to build and store your Press/Media
Contact list, Media Advisories and Press Releases. Sending your
releases from the gmail account you created allows you to manage
your efforts.
Now you have become your organization’s “Tom Sawyer” and it’s
time to recruit guest bloggers, showing them how easy it is to be part
of your bigger effort and that many hands make for light work.
IN SUMMARY
We’re still tallying the collective
tide of exposure that we
created through the blogging
site and social media. It’s clear
that the WordPress site was a
powerful anchor point.
The highest traffic day for the
site was the week before Food
Day, coinciding with a story in
The Boston Globe.

Social Media Gameplan for Food Day MA

  • 1. COBBLING TOGETHER A SOCIAL MEDIA GAMEPLAN FOR FOOD DAY MA Presented to Tech Day Camp By Tim Stansky November 2012
  • 2. INTRODUCTION The purpose of this presentation is to share the plan we used to build cohesion and participation across multiple platforms. This amplified the efforts of Food Day groups across a state based on Massachusetts’ Food Day Media Group experience in 2012. We did it with no budget, lots of enthusiasm and an old New England truism that “many hands make for light work”.
  • 4. STARTING POINTS Pull together a core team who volunteer to manage a social media tool that they are good at and let them be the lead to post, Tweet, Pin, etc. We were Twitter-centric, used facebook and dabbled in Pinterest. I wish we had “Pinned” more considering that platform’s growth at the time. New social media channels will crop up in the future, embrace the ones with momentum and critical mass. Create a gmail account with your group’s affinity name as a master email account that you will use to build a WordPress site, enroll in social media platforms, and use to communicate as the voice of your group. Avoid the use of an individual’s name or personal account. If a facebook or Twitter account already exists don’t worry about it – as long as the owner of that account is on your core team.
  • 5. SAVING, SHARING & SIGNING UP Create a Dropbox account using your new gmail account where you will save documents, keep a Master Blogging Schedule, store logos, photos/images, a contact list and other necessary assets. Create a folder and you can invite members with a simple “sharing” option.
  • 6. BUILD Using the basic Microsoft Paint accessory modify the free national Food Day logos to create simple state identities. Build your social media tools using the gmail account you created – Twitter, facebook, Pinterest.
  • 7. FREE TOOLS AND RESOURCES Build a WordPress site using the gmail account you created. Add your logos and the widgets for the social media accounts you created. When I built the Food Day MA website there was no easy widget to plug in a Pinterest button. Many thanks to betweenheandshe.com, I found a VERY good post that taught me how to add a Pinterest button to individual posts.
  • 8. INVITE WITH AUTHOR STATUS Invite guest bloggers with different levels of access to your WordPress site. I suggest you offer Author status to the group at large and just a few with Administrator or Editor access. 1. 2.
  • 9. SAVING, SHARING & SIGNING UP I saved the text of a an email on the Dropbox that I sent to every new guest blogger with instructions on claiming a date to post along with a heads-up that they’d also receive two separate emails inviting them to the Dropbox and the WordPress site. This made the recruitment of guest bloggers pretty easy once I set up the system. Email to guest bloggers: First THANK YOU. You should have received an invitation to www.fooddayma.WordPress.com with Author status and an invitation to the FoodDayMA Dropbox folder. If you’re not a current Dropbox user and install it on your desktop we earn more storage space. You can always uninstall it. There’s a word document in the Dropbox named “FDMA blogging schedule”. Add the information on the date you plan to post the blog and the other information and SAVE your changes. Write and post your blog or schedule it to publish on the date you chose. Promote your blog on the social media platforms you frequent. If you Tweet about it please include @FoodDayMA in the Tweet to notify us to call out the birds! Post it on facebook, pin it on your Pinterest account, etc. We’re here to help you with anything you need. If you’re not comfortable with WordPress and can at least provide text and images we can tee it up for you. Tim Stansky
  • 10. GET A PAINT BRUSH Use your Dropbox account to build and store your Press/Media Contact list, Media Advisories and Press Releases. Sending your releases from the gmail account you created allows you to manage your efforts. Now you have become your organization’s “Tom Sawyer” and it’s time to recruit guest bloggers, showing them how easy it is to be part of your bigger effort and that many hands make for light work.
  • 11. IN SUMMARY We’re still tallying the collective tide of exposure that we created through the blogging site and social media. It’s clear that the WordPress site was a powerful anchor point. The highest traffic day for the site was the week before Food Day, coinciding with a story in The Boston Globe.
