  3. 3. What do you think about the relationship between social media and content strategy?
  4. 4. Social Media is #1 Most popular content channel tactic for brands
  5. 5. #1 and rising
  6. 6. Social Media - in a nutshell Mouthpiece, but not a monologue Content is valuable and valuable content is priceless. Aim is to provide value. In the best world there is a relationship, community and dialogue Speed! Real-time! Disappearing content! Branding 70 / 20 / 10 rule – 70% share information, 20 collaborations, 10% you Real measurement Helps drive content strategy (more on this later)
  7. 7. Facebook Friends and family network.. Demographic: 77% of FB users are women. 82% of online adults has an account. Most popular channel with nearly 1.5 billion users. Media: Photos, posts, links, videos. Still working on animated gifs. Best practices: Members highly engaged on a daily basis, so daily posts are good. Consistent posting works best. Advertising: Easy and relatively cheap, targeting, A/B testing. Yay! How to engage as a brand: tag partners, share posts like brand pages, polls, respond to comments/comment on other pages Facebook insights: Good information on your followers - popular posts, audience demographics, track likes Biggest problems: FB algorithm is capricious, changes overnights. Not always clear what will get traction and visibility.
  8. 8. Twitter Microblogging network Demographics: Twitter users skew younger, in addition Internet users living in urban areas are more likely than their suburban or rural counterparts to use Twitter. Media: Text, links, photos, animated GIF’s, short video Best practices: short URL’s, Retweet, Hashtags help expand content reach, Twitters Lists, can stand frequent posts, good for 2-way communication – TwitterChat Advertising: Easy to advertise, native appearance. Biggest problems: Internal turmoil at company means product and vision under adjustment, pivoting, unclear about future. Can’t schedule posts unless you have ads set up. Not a lot of info on your followers.
  9. 9. Pinterest Cataloguing network. Inspirational channel – believes it is a “tool for unlocking creativity”. Demographic: 31% of online adults, 44% of online women. Male members are gaining. Media: Pictures, short videos. Best practices: High-value content – professional photos, infographics. Good for B-C and cataloging. Biggest problem: Niche. Simplistic, but hard to ‘get’ for some people. Unclear on its application in B-B.
  10. 10. Instagram A repository of memory Demographic: 83% under 40, 55% under 29. Very popular with younger adults, people of color. Best practices: Members highly engaged on a daily basis, so daily posts are good. Good for events, as-it-happens, visual only content. Great for sharing visual stories. Media: Images & short videos only Biggest problem: Mobile-only, limited tools. Future is bright, as it is a part of Facebook.
  11. 11. LinkedIn Business networking Demographics: Evenly distributed among the adult age groups, for working professionals. LinkedIn is the only major social media platform for which usage rates are higher among 30- to 49-year-olds than among 18- to 29-year-olds. Media: Images, links, posts. No animated gif or video uploads. Best Practices: Use of photos, links more effective than posts. Similar to Facebook. Advertising: Seemingly ideal for advertising, but not having a lot of success yet. Better luck advertising on Twitter & Facebook. Biggest problem: Simplistic tools for posting, advertising.
  12. 12. YouTube Videos only Demographics: Huge audience, huge age spread. Advertising: YouTube is expected to generate $5.6 billion in gross revenue in 2016. Currently, there are 6 billion hours of video watched on YouTube per month and 1 billion videos watched over mobile phones per day. Good place to advertise, simple interface. Best practices: Biggest problem: Not much. Now more competition from streaming services. Probably needs to think about getting into a original content to compete with Netflicks.
  13. 13. Others SnapChat – Quickie messaging app to share videos and images and chat. Lasts 10 seconds. Young demographic directly mostly to teens, younger adults. Fun. Interface is almost too simplistic. Tumblr – Short-form blogging. Can have great community. Owned by Yahoo. Google+ – Used for relationship marketing. Keeps trying to die, but keeps rising from the dead. Good SEO though!

Hinweis der Redaktion

  • Content and social media have a symbiotic relationship: Without great content social media is meaningless and without social media less people will know about your content. Use them together to reach and convert your prospects.
  • Remember social media is the most used content channel for brands.
    It is the top of funnel channels, through which you add value to, and converse with a customer.

    Newsletters are the most effective.

    Note: Fewer than 40% of B2C marketers said they use the following tactics: Print Magazines (37%), Online Presentations (36%), Case Studies (35%), Print Newsletters (34%), Webinars/Webcasts (31%), Books (30%), Research Reports (28%), White Papers (28%), Digital Magazines (27%), eBooks (25%), Podcasts (22%), Virtual Conferences (22%), and Games/ Gamification (20%). Usage of almost all of the tactics on this chart has risen this year over last year. The exceptions are blogs (down 5 percentage points) and articles on your website (which has stayed the same). The biggest jump in usage has been for branded content tools (from 37% to 47%). Illustrations/photos is new to the list this year.

  • Partnering with a social media strategist. Here they are - the content strategist, a social media strategist, and maybe a developer.

    Sooner or later, if this hasn't happened already, you'll be working with someone to get the campaign or content you've been working on on the web. You'll probably end up partnering with a social media strategist.
    Collaborate. They want to get the most engagement for the story.
  • If it's too focused on the business it sounds like an ad and doesn't meet audience interests. Sweet spot 
  • An existing audience. How do they engage with you? Do you have any information on customer or donor data? 

    For example, one client I have works on rare and challenging diseases in children. His audience skews highly female/mothers. What he talks about is science, but campaigns tend to be highly emotional in terms of the storytelling.

  • An example of how sometime seemingly innocuous can go out of control. A press release for a study was posted on our social media channels. Was picked up by an anti-circumcism blog. Suddenly, Fred Hutch went from saving lives and curing cancer to butchering babies. In 2009, Burger King asked people to unfriend 10 friends on Facebook to get a Whopper. Antithesis of social media (to communicate not cut people off). Facebook cut off the application and that ended the campaign.
  • Hard for a strategist, who has carefully planned and honed your messages, to realize that once your content is on social media, you can lose control.
    Example of a recruitment campaign planned with the HR department. Posted a photo from the top of one of the buildings at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center with the caption "Gorgeous view from one of our rooftop decks. If you worked here, you could watch the seaplanes landing on Lake Union."  with a link to the Jobs page.
    However, the response we got was from former patients and their caregivers, remembering the view when they or their loved one was undergoing cancer treatment . The response was very positive, but had nothing to do with
