Stewardship
Audience retention is often overlooked.
By Periscoping events for those that cannot attend (be it
for reasons such as it's sold out, or distance, or financial
barriers) we are creating a welcoming and
an inclusive relationship with our fans.
Our fans are
noticing!
Stewardship
Contests and audience participation posts are also a
great way to keep fans engaged.

Stewardship
Being a part of the discussion, as Social Media is just that:
SOCIAL.
Engage as your museum
account! Comments and likes
insert your museum into the
online conversation thereby
raising your profile and clout
just by taking part. Add your
knowledge with @ replies
and you too can be seen as a
reliable resource within that
community!
Community
Community Outreach to like-minded organizations to
create on/offline projects to further engage mutual audiences!
