The YouTube video from this slide was: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIFYPQjYhv8 Social Networking What is Social Networking • One to one conversations are now seen by many. “World of Mouth!” • Traditional corporate marketing messages replaced with human dialogues. • Tracking targeted audience feedback is immediate.

  3. The YouTube video from this slide was: http://www.youtube.com/user/Socialnomics09 Why Implement Social Media What is Social Networking • Increase your communications with an unprecedented ROI and Reach. • Immediate membership feedback enables you to be faster to a target market with requested services! • More personal & engaging communications! • Expand your membership & involvement more efficiently.

  4. The YouTube video from this slide was: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXCmyTh66Uw How to Implement Social Media What is Social Networking • Choose one online vehicle which you own as your “home base” or center point. (Like the center of a spider’s web!) • Make sure all your online vehicles follow fundamental online principles. • Feed your home base & your target audience/viewers from the other online appropriate vehicles • YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Delicious, Digg

  5. Fundamentally Speaking! What is Social Networking “The webs we weave!” • Website points to each of your Social Media pages, ie to your specific Social Media Profiles or Fan Pages or Group Pages • Each individual Social Media pages point back to YOUR website.. • Some of the Social Media pages feed each other! • Put your links on everything!

  6. Fundamentally Speaking! What is Social Networking Planning 101 • BEFORE YOU BEGIN.. determine the Purpose of each of your online pages, ie your Website’s pages, Google listing (Google Local Business Center), and each of your Online Social Media Tools! • Create your KEYWORD list, make sure you use them in your text, tags, categories, titles… • Remember to link back to your website and to feed each other! • Remember the 4 second rule! • The online user has the attention span of a NAT, you have four seconds to catch their attentionand achieve your purpose!

  7. What is Social Networking Fundamentally Speaking! Words of Wisdom (I hope) & Reference links… • www.Facebook.com • Originally used by students to update each other, now the 4th Largest “Country” in the world as it relates to population! • I suggest you create FAN/Business page for the public… have that Fan Button everywhere, encouraging people to become your Chamber’s FAN!.. This effort is for both member & public awareness & appealing to future members! Next, you could create Group for your members only, if you like, where you let them talk amongst themselves & faciliate your thought provoking leadership!! • You have to start by creating a Facebook Profile Page, known as a Friend’s Page. Next determine whether your purpose would be fulfilled by a Fan/Business’s Page, or Group Page, or just maybe if your Friend’s Profile page is enough! (see the examples at the end..) • Facebook Widgets can be added to help links online pages & you can “feed” your various Chamber Facebook Posts to your Chamber’s other Social Media sites. • www.Twitter.com • 140 characters only, sometimes called micro blogging, you can look at someone’s profile without having a Twitter account or “Following” them. • If you want a tool which allows you to send out an immediate 140 character messages, this is the tool. • Often used to update Websites via RRS Feeds, very popular in the younger crowd. • Can drive fundraising, buzz for an upcoming event, or buzz during an event, emergency updates, announcing results… • www.linkedIn.com • LinkedIN is to Professionals what Facebook is to Friends. • Excellent place to join Groups, (I found some very powerful marketing Groups.) • You start by creating your CEO Profile, and then create your LinkedIN Chamber Group from that, again is dependent on your Purpose, you can make it a closed Group, or an open Group. • The Advance Search on LinkedIn is very powerful, you can search of a human with a specific title, in a specific mile radius, of a postal code, and all the results are shown, with the degree of connection separation between you and who you already know who can introduce you! • There are many Blog programs on the market. www.blogger.com, www.typepad.com, www.wordpress.com • Think of them as online interactive magazines. • You can moderate the replies, so, only those your team approve go public onto your blog. I highly recommend that you moderate the comments to your Blog’s posts! • You can put Google Analytics on blogs to see which links are popular and which aren’t! • I suggest you follow some Blogs before you start your own Blog, listen to their style, and determine your own! • www.Youtube.com • CREATE A YOUTUBE PLAN FOR YOUR CHAMBER!!!! I THINK IT’S VERY IMPORTANT! • Video is such a powerful and under utilized tool, keep them short and meaningful.. Video events, speaking engagements, chamber member testimonials! Determine your style! • Create you own Chamber’s Channel on YouTube when you believe you are ready to post a video at least every two weeks! • Repurpose these videos to your website, facebook, Blog… • Getting Started.. • Determine your Purpose • What style are you comfortable with… is this going to be the CEO of your Chamber’s voice or the Chamber’s Voice? • Who on your team will help you spin your Online Social Web! • Which elements will you start with, give yourself some time to review what others are doing.. • GOOD LUCK!

  8. Don’t forget to make sure your website is on the www.Peterborough.ca business directory! – VERY IMPORTANT!! New YLM.ca online Chamber & City Directories System coming April 2010! Only Better! YLM.ca hosts both the City of Peterborough and the Chamber’s Directory!
