Marketing is dead. We need to create movements instead. -Kevin Roberts Worldwide CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi Photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/yukatafish/2616061290/
Campaigns have a beginning and an end. Movements go on as long as kindred spirits are involved. Campaigns are you talking about yourself. Movements are others talking about you. Campaigns are “you vs. us.” Movements are “let’s do this together.” - Brains on Fire Photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dos82/2204952374

Track Clicks on Your Links
Track Reach of Your Tweets
Track Your and Others’ Influence
Facebook Pages Offer interesting, shareable information Let people stay on Facebook – post photos, videos, etc. on page Actively manage your community by encouraging comments, interaction Give people a reason to “like” your page When you have 25 “likes,” grab your alias URL (i.e., facebook.com/GeneralHospital) Let your email contacts know about your Facebook page (“Tell Your Fans”)
LinkedIn Create a company page to provide information about your organization Create a group for supporters and staff to network Answer questions relevant to your organization’s priorities Focus on professional networking, identifying funding/sponsorship contact, new employee hiring
YouTube / Online Video Set up your own channel on YouTube Create short (1-2 minute) stories Good audio is critical Compelling content – emotional, interesting, funny, surprising Viral is an outcome, not an attribute
Google Plus Allows more control over who sees what in your stream Can share long or short posts Create organizational pages like FB Real names required Hangouts allow up to ten people to video chat Increases chances of coming up in Google search results
Pinterest Visually based - lead with images Primarily female demographic Make sure pin links back to the original site – great for traffic generation Content is easy to share Can have multiple contributors Include compelling photos in all of your content to encourage pinning
Instagram/Vine Photo/video storytelling Use hashtags Video – think in quick bites Instagram – 15 seconds Vine – 6 seconds Set a tone/personality Use for contests, participatory activities
Issues to Consider Purpose Audience Voice - who will be blogging, writing style, team? Resources - time, enthusiasm Blog Management - comments, guidelines, calendar Images - sources, copyright Tracking - metrics, tools
Blog Post Types Educational Call to Action Tips News Commentary How-to Resources Lists Interview Personal story Ask a question, gather responses Photo/video blog Ongoing feature Guest blogger Event planning/recap
