YOUR OBJECTIVE
What is your social media objective?
Build your audience, raise awareness, grow community,
educate, share resources, generate revenue?
Social Media Development Process
1. Build an audience - quickly
2. Communicate with your audience - effectively
3. Measure your success.... GROW!
BUILD YOUR AUDIENCE
You need to build an audience so you aren’t yelling in a room by
yourself (biggest mistake we see)
Email Marketing / Signatures
Facebook Ads / Pay Per Click Ads
Word of Mouth / Business Collateral
Website / Search Engine Optimization
Participate in other communities, get people to talk about you
COMMUNICATE
What does your community want to hear?
Original content
News around the web in your industry
Photos (events, community...)
Videos (presentations, testimonials...)
Encourage and reward participation!
FACEBOOK
The ‘KING’ of social media
1 billion monthly users
680 mobile users
618 million daily users
Your strategy starts here!
People ‘like’, ‘share’, and ‘comment’ on your posts
FACEBOOK
Leverage all of Facebook’s tools!
Build a Facebook Page
Run Facebook Ads
Promote Facebook Offers
Organize Facebook Events
Post Photos and Checkin!
TWITTER
Microblogging service
140 character messages
Use hashtags to start trends and
follow topics: #bcafmagm
Like Facebook status updates... but public anyone can
‘follow’ you and read your ‘tweets’ - can include photos
Follow trending topics, find out what the world is thinking!
Start conversations!
YOUTUBE
Second most popular search engine in the world
Videos sharing
Customize your channel
‘Subscribe’ to other channels
Content strategy
Tours, presentations, walk throughs, demos...
INSTAGRAM
Smartphone app, take photos
and share online
‘Follow’ others like Twitter
Has cool filters to apply to
photos, which is why photographers
hate it
Bought by Facebook in 2012
PINTEREST
Share content ‘pin it’ (has to have
an image associated with it)
People create ‘boards’ with images
of links across the web
Follow other users and ‘re-pin’ items
Popular for recipes, fashion, travel,
products - heavily used by female demographic
FOUR SQUARE
‘Check-in’ to geographic locations
restaurants, concerts, the mall,
farmer’s market?
Losing popularity because
Facebook has ‘check-in’ feature
Has great tools for running promotions
First 5 people to check-in win a prize
If we get 30 check-ins you all get a discount
YELP
Online reviews
Review your products, service,
event, business or organization
Great for testimonials! Get others to talk about you and
direct your users to your Yelp profile

TRACKING
If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it
Keep track of numbers of followers, fans, likes over time
Monitor what kinds of content you post and what results those posts
earn
Photos, time of day, shares, likes, links to resources?
Create controversy? discussion? inspire? educate?
Monitor response from paid ads in Facebook
Work with your web designer to integrate web stats
