3. How to maximise your social presence Assumptions customers will make from an inactive social  The business is no longer trading – this is the biggie and the one to really worry about. 1 in 3 small businesses fail in the first three years, so just as a physical business not opening for a month would signify closure so could an inactive twitter account …. assuming they don’t think or know your business hasn’t closed let’s look at the other assumptions  The business has a slow response time to customers  The business doesn’t respond at all to customer enquiries  The business does not take an active interest in their potential customers  The business has no interest in online communication so is unlikely to respond to emails Incisive (in-sy-siv) adj. mentally sharp; acute; clear and effective; cutting; penetrating either  Nothing new has happened at the business within the last 30 days  Competitor XYZ is really active on twitter – everybody seems to be using them locally  All of the above result in one thing – LOST BUSINESS 3

12. How to maximise your social presence Be the best at what, when and how you tweet  Create Tweets that resonate: Combine exciting, useful content with an engaging, unique tone to emotionally connect with your audience. Include links, pictures and videos. And remember to keep your Tweets prompt and timely - a crucial element for Twitter success.  Keep Tweets short and sweet: Tweets are limited to 140 characters so they can be consumed easily anywhere, even via mobile text messages. There’s no magical length for a Tweet, but a recent report by Buddy Media revealed that Tweets shorter than 100 characters get a 17% higher engagement rate.  Make it real-time: Timing matters, especially for breaking news or live Tweets. But how about for everything else? The short answer: it depends on the content of the Tweet, your objectives, your audience, their geography and more. The best way to optimise the timing of your Tweets is to test and learn.  Tweet often: Like timing, Tweet frequency depends on a number of variables such as your audience, purpose and business objectives. A good basic rule is between three to five Tweets per day. You may want to try tweeting a few times a day to see how your audience reacts, then adjust as needed.  Follow your interests: Following is a fantastic way to discover compelling content and inspire ideas for your own Tweets. Follow accounts that are interesting to you or your business. Incisive (in-sy-siv) adj. mentally sharp; acute; clear and effective; cutting; penetrating 12

13. How to maximise your social presence A hashtag is simply a means to organize and advertise an idea. The more appealing the idea, the more likely the hashtag is to be shared. With a little insight into how hashtags work, you can greatly increase the odds that your social media campaigns on hashtag-friendly platforms will actually see real-world results in conversions. Incisive (in-sy-siv) adj. mentally sharp; acute; clear and effective; cutting; penetrating #Hashtags 13

14. How to maximise your social presence The #Hashtag rules to observe  Informative hashtags are always better than abstract ones. There’s a reason the #IceBucketChallenge Incisive (in-sy-siv) adj. mentally sharp; acute; clear and effective; cutting; penetrating 14 created a trending spike for the ALS Association, and #WTFF (what the french fry) failed for Burger King. People won’t respond to hashtags they don’t understand.  Proofread with the mentality of a 12-year-old. It’s all too easy for a seemingly innocent hashtag to become a puerile gag thanks to lack of context or poorly combined words. The classic example of this is the 2012 hashtag campaign to launch a new Susan Boyle album using #susanalbumparty. If it can be misread, it will be.  Incorporate hashtags into other channels. There’s a reason that hashtags are popping up in everything from outdoor ads to song titles: It works. By incorporating your hashtags into your traditional media and online campaigns, you’ll be able to brand the hashtag’s core idea more clearly with your customers.  Live tweet during big events. One of the most effective ways of using hashtags is to live tweet from your brand or company Twitter account during a shared cultural experience, using the event hashtags. Elections, sports championships and other major media events are ideal for this technique.  Keep it short. The longer the hashtag, the more hassle it is to use and follow. While there are exceptions, the most effective hashtags are composed of one or two very simple elements, such as the event name and the year. Only on rare occasions will a trending hashtag involve more than three or four short, simple words. With thanks from: http://blog.sumall.com/

15. How to maximise your social presence The #Hashtag rules to observe/2  Don’t overdo them. The more hashtags you add into your content, the more diluted and confusing your message becomes. As a rule of thumb, limit yourself to two hashtags per tweet. “Excited about #SummerVacation” is a clear, simple message, while “#Excited about #summer #vacation #2015! #summer2015” is not.  Monitor the conversation. Following hashtags is an extremely effective means of keeping track of trends in your industry. By keeping track of the conversation, you can gain insight into what your competition is doing, what the influencers are saying, and how customers are reacting.  Use hashtags in sentences in place of words. Twitter only allows 140 characters per tweet, and each one has to count. “Having a great time at CES! #CES2015” may be grammatically correct, but it’s no more effective than “Having a blast at #CES2015!”  Capitalize multi-word hashtags for clarity. The longer the hashtag, the more likely the message is to be misread. A great example of this going was the reaction to Margaret Thatcher’s death, hashtagged #nowthatchersdead. Some people read this as #NowThatChersDead, prompting rumors that music icon Cher had passed away.  Avoid banned hashtags. Although Twitter’s hashtag system remains open, some hashtag-enabled social media sites ban words with potentially offensive content. A poorly proofed hashtag can easily trip these filters, resulting in content that doesn’t reach the audience. Some sites, like Instagram, also filter out popular or generic hashtags like #iphone and #popular, making it vital that you test to see if your content is actually making it through the system.

26. How to maximise your social presence What is the best time of day to tweet? Segmenting engagement for key content types can help you determine when certain types of content are more likely to drive engagement by time of day and day of the week.

27. How to maximise your social presence What questions should a comprehensive report answer?  Reputation: Is there an increasing interest for your products or services in a specific part of the world?

What social network do your customers prefer to use? What percentage of your marketing budget should you allocate to social media? Will social media investments contribute to an increase in sales?  Competitors: How are others in your industry using social media? Who is setting the trends? Who are the key influencers in your line of work and how could you transform them into ambassadors? 27

28. How to maximise your social presence The Klout Score  The Klout Score is a number between 1-100 that represents your influence. The more influential you are, the higher your Klout Score  Influence is the ability to drive action. When you share something on social media or in real life and people respond, that’s influence. The more influential you are, the higher your Klout Score  For example, generating 100 retweets from 10 tweets will contribute more to your Score than Incisive (in-sy-siv) adj. mentally sharp; acute; clear and effective; cutting; penetrating 28 generating 100 retweets from 1,000 tweets  Additionally, Klout values the engagement you drive from unique individuals. One-hundred retweets from 100 different people contribute more to your Score than do 100 retweets from a single person.
