Bringing it to life

Bringing it to Life

  • Numbers are misleading!

  • Context is Key:

  • Tools can provide support, but YOU have to provide context

  • Are people saying positive or negative things?

  • Reporting on social media should include insights and analysis

  • For each metric ask yourself:

  • Who is engaging?

  • What are they responding to?

  • What are they saying?

  • What does it mean?


Tying the technical to the narrative

Tying the Technical to the Narrative

  • This is where you earn your stripes!

  • Who is your demographic online? Does it differ from on the ground?

  • What are Facebook’s Insights telling you about content interactions?

  • Adjust your approach:

  • If you lead with a great stat, but the retweets focus on a detail in the story, take this to heart!

  • From the trenches, it all looks beautiful! Be selective about your content.

Best practices update1

Best Practices Update

  • How to Create News Feed-worthy Facebook Content

  • Content is Not Always King - Posting too often can drive fans to unlike your page. Control volume but produce content yielding high interactions

  • Vary Your Posts - Often it’s not what you’re saying, but what you’re sharing. Include photos, videos, etc.

  • Timing is Everything – Keep a log of what time of day you post things. Vary it and keep a record so you know when your posts are read the most.

  • Post About a Trending Topic

  • Go Manual – Scheduling ALL of your posts may provide a poor experience

  • Use Facebook’s New Features
