Association Social Media: National Association for Women Business Owners Phoenix Chapter (NAWBOPHX)

SocialFish

'In this series of interviews of Association Social Media Managers, you’ll be able to compare notes on what all of these fab organizations are doing with their social media management – from how they organize the roles and responsibilities, to how they manage content flow through the organization and out to social, to what campaigns they tried, to how they see the future of association social media. . ——————— Welcome to Tracie Rollins, social media manager for the National Association for Women Business Owners Phoenix Chapter (NAWBOPHX)! Thank you for coming on SocialFish to share how you manage this work! 1) First things first – in what department in your organization does your role sit? Who do you report to? . I am the owner of The Rollins Advantage, LLC.; a content and social media marketing agency in Phoenix, Arizona. I sit on the communications board as the social media manager for NAWBOPHX. 2) Describe your social/digital “ecosystem” – what social media sites do you (or the org as a whole) manage? Are they interlinked in specific ways? How do you decide what content to post where? Do they have different audiences? As the social media manager, I am responsible for maintaining all social media platforms, developing and executing social media campaigns, analyzing the results and implementing improvements. I post, syndicate and curate content relevant to women business owners across all of the association’s social platforms including LinkedIn , Facebook , Twitter , Google+ and YouTube. Each message is evaluated for platform relevancy on a post-by-post basis. For example, messaging related to corporate sponsors, professional development and available positions perform better on LinkedIn, whereas pictures from events perform better on Facebook. 3) Can you describe the internal collaboration workflow with other areas of the association (e.g. are you part of a team that meets on a regular basis)? How do you manage content flow? How do you manage monitoring and responding across the organization? The communications team meets monthly to report out on progress, share metrics, receive updates and consider requests from the other committees. They manage a calendar of upcoming events so that they know what needs to be scheduled on their social media and editorial calendars. In every meeting they discuss ways that they can better communicate and serve their members. 4) Describe a typical day for you – and any favorite tools you use regularly for anything related to social media. A typical day in my social world starts with a freshly brewed pot of coffee, my laptop and blazing fast Internet. I review each platform for engagement and respond as appropriate. Then I start the process of being helpful by researching, curating content, syndicating blog posts, creating new posts and scheduling them according to the social media strategy. Hootsuite is my tool of choice because it’s cost effective and improves productivity. I also use Canva to create beautiful images to share. 5) Is community management (group moderation) part of your responsibilities? Please describe those activities. Community management is essential because NAWBOPHX members are passionate about their business and the growth of women owned businesses across the world and they’re not afraid to show it. I review each social platform and engage with members and visitors often answering questions through messages, commenting or moderating comments and posts. 6) Have you done any social media campaigns? Can you share any success stories (or lessons learned)? NAWBOPHX recently kicked off our social media campaign to encourage members to get active on social media using #NAWBOPHX. The communication team keeps track of members using this hashtag and awards prizes that are sponsored by their corporate partners. Members have a lot of fun with this activity and enjoy winning the monthly NAWBOPHX Social Media Rock Star award. “ @ILscraps : @Spellbinders @StaceyCaron You all look AMAZING!! Mingling at the #nawbophx Red Affair! pic.twitter.com/U91pA1w9 ” -Thank you! — Spellbinders (@Spellbinders) December 14, 2011. #nawbophx who knew? I’m a Wander Woman. Says @marciareynolds No wonder I’m on my 4th successful career change and I’m only 41. Woohoo. — Marnee Weber (@MarneeWeber) August 10, 2011. 7) What’s the hardest part of your job? The hardest part of being a social media manager is conversion tracking. Multi-level attribution is key to ensuring that attribution is given to social efforts when a new lead who found NAWBOPHX through social or engaged in some manner eventually becomes a member. 8) Give us a glimpse into the future. If budget and resources were no object, what would you love to see in terms of your association’s social media presence in 3 years? I have a passion for women business owners and enjoy helping them with tips, tricks and useful advice that improves the success of their business. I’d love to see every women business owner in Phoenix become engaged online with NAWBOPHX and achieve her business related goals. I’d also love to see more prospects converting to members and additional corporate sponsors as a result of her social media efforts with NAWBOPHX.

Association Social Media: ASCD

SocialFish

'In this series of interviews of Association Social Media Managers, you’ll be able to compare notes on what all of these fab organizations are doing with their social media management – from how they organize the roles and responsibilities, to how they manage content flow through the organization and out to social, to what campaigns they tried, to how they see the future of association social media. . ——————— . Meet Tina Byland, ASCD’s Social Media Specialist! 1. First things first - in what department in your organization does your role sit? Who do you report to? . My role as social media specialist sits on the communications team here at ASCD. I report to the communications manager. The communications team at ASCD is responsible for the association’s traditional and social media outreach, as well as our press room at our Annual Conference and Exhibit Show and the association’s Annual Report. 2. Describe your social/digital “ecosystem” – what social media sites do you (or the org as a whole) manage? Are they interlinked in specific ways? How do you decide what content to post where? Do they have different audiences? Here at ASCD, we’ve worked hard to develop our social media “ecosystem.” ASCD keeps an active presence on Twitter , Facebook , Pinterest , Instagram , Google+ , LinkedIn , and YouTube. It’s very important to us that we maintain a strong brand presence throughout these channels and keep a consistent look and feel so that they are easily recognizable. In that way, they are all very much interlinked. If you’ve been following us on Twitter for years, but just recently subscribed to our YouTube channel, we want to make sure the branding and organizational voice is familiar to you. Still, each of our social media channels has a different personality. We are constantly reviewing our data, tracking our audience, and researching trends to make sure that we are reaching the needs of each individual channel’s audience. In that way, you will find something a little bit different on each social media channel. For example, even though both Pinterest and Instagram are reliant on images, the content you will find on the channels can be extremely different. Our Instagram audience leans slightly more toward classroom teachers, so we tend to deliver content and photos that are helpful and relevant to their work. Also, since there’s nothing to click on in Instagram, our photos and captions never rely on extra information found through a link. On the other hand, our Pinterest audience is much broader, so we diversify our content to support not only teachers but also administrators, speech and language therapists, counselors, and even parents. Because Pinterest is very link heavy, our pins don’t need to be independently digestible pieces of information, so they are often samples or teasers of what you will find by clicking through the pin. Finally, we make sure we share content from across our entire association on our channels. We have units in ASCD dedicated to almost every area that impacts education: conferences and institutes, book publishing, magazines and newsletters, online courses and webinars, professional development consulting, public policy, and more. Our communications team keeps up to date on the happenings in each area so we can share comprehensive association news with followers on each social channel. 3. Can you describe the internal collaboration workflow with other areas of the association (e.g. are you part of a team that meets on a regular basis)? How do you manage content flow? How do you manage monitoring and responding across the organization? It is my role to personally oversee all of our social media channels and make sure that the channels are high quality and responsiveness is timely. But it takes a team to feed the hungry social media channels , and in that way, it is absolutely a collaborative team effort. The communications team divides up the responsibility of what we need to share with our social media audience so that no information falls through the cracks. In that way, we each become an “expert” on different internal content—for example, our publicist could be working on a whole child initiative action item, making sure the news is shared on our channels, while our communications specialist is ensuring a new book release is simultaneously being shared. We collaborate regularly with work group units in our association to make sure we know what is coming down their pipeline. Then, our team “expert” makes sure the information is distributed across social media in the ways our research has deemed most effective. It also helps that our communications team physically sits together, and we “meet” informally throughout the week right at our desks as questions or ideas arise (we’re certainly not the quietest team at ASCD). We also formally meet each Monday to run through what we are working on and how we can collaborate. The communications team also meets regularly with the marketing team to discuss upcoming promotions, determine each unit’s plan, and coordinate our efforts to maximize effectiveness. As for monitoring, our entire communications team pitches in during the workday and checks the channels regularly. I also check the channels after hours and on weekends. Since we don’t have an automated system to post Instagram photos, we share the after-hours Instagram duties on the evenings when the app is most used. Luckily, we are able to schedule posts on our other channels—all of our posts are generated by a member of the communications team and set for a specific time—so my responsibilities outside of traditional work hours consist of making sure content publishes as planned and our audience has no urgent concerns going unnoticed. 4. Describe a typical day for you – and any favorite tools you use regularly for anything related to social media. Social media never sleeps, so my typical day really depends on what’s happening over social media on a particular day. With that being said, once I get to the office, I’ll run through each channel to respond to Facebook messages, direct messages on Twitter, and all other correspondence we receive. We use Hootsuite (for Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn) and Curalate (for Pinterest and Instagram) to streamline our social media work. I keep Hootsuite up on my browser all day to check our Twitter feed in between meetings and projects, as does the rest of our team. I will also check our Facebook page periodically throughout the workday. Since my job also entails managing our blog, Inservice , a great portion of my day is also spent working on the blog’s editorial calendar. I always make sure that it reflects the promotions we are doing over social media. Other tools we use are Keyhole , Iconosquare , and Facebook Insights. After my work is done for the day, I’ll head out and keep an eye on our channels from home. Social media is constant, so we have to be, too! 5. Is community management (group moderation) part of your responsibilities? Please describe those activities. If you consider the amazing community of followers we have on our social media channels, then yes! However, group moderation in the formal sense isn’t a part of my responsibilities. 6. Have you done any social media campaigns? Can you share any success stories (or lessons learned)? We’ve done quite a few social media campaigns and I’ve loved every one. While each is different, one of my favorites was ASCD Arias™ Week back in May. We have an excellent series of short-format publications called ASCD Arias ™ that answer the questions that concern educators most. The ASCD Arias™ series is built around the question “What keeps you up at night?” and our publishing team was seeking new burning questions straight from educators. Well, who better to give us new ideas than our social media followers? The campaign was completely integrated, blanketing each of our social media channels and our Inservice blog with a week’s worth of content and a special giveaway. Here is a breakdown of how this campaign was executed: We started the week out with a blog post announcing that we’d be giving away a set of 13 ASCD Arias™ publications. Blog posts from ASCD Arias™ authors followed the rest of the week, as they shared insights from their publications and what “kept them up at night.”. On Twitter, we shared the message throughout the week, but especially Tuesday night during our monthly #ASCDL2L Twitter chat, which features ASCD authors and ASCD Emerging Leaders. The hour-long chat that month focused on the challenges, questions, and concerns educators have today. On Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, Instagram, and LinkedIn, the conversation continued around the question “What keeps you up at night?” all week. We collected responses from each channel and compiled them together for our publishing team. Because the campaign took place during Teacher Appreciation Week, we paired it with a teacher appreciation marketing campaign that offered a bundle of ASCD Arias publications at a discounted rate. This campaign demonstrated two important lessons. The first is that your engagement will be most successful when it’s authentic. We weren’t just asking people to answer questions so we could tally their responses and increase our follower count. We were asking because we wanted to hear their thoughts and concerns, and we were going to do something with them. We wanted to plan out new books to answer their questions and meet their most pressing needs. We needed them to be a partner in this and we had a specific goal in mind, which made this a successful campaign. The second lesson is to plan, plan, plan! Even when we thought we’d planned for every scenario, we found ourselves needing to plan more. Everyone on the team had specific responsibilities for channel monitoring, data collection, and reporting. We worked hard to answer every how , when , and where question we could before Monday morning. Even then, we had to be nimble and flexible once the campaign launched, because things naturally changed as the week went on. Organization was absolutely key to our success. Other examples: An example of how we have promoted one of our newest books, Carol Ann Tomlinson’s The Differentiated Classroom, 2 nd edition, over Twitter through a blog post: Our Pinterest boards illustrate how we support every part of ASCD with boards on our books, flagship magazine Educational Leadership , ed policy news, PD resources, and more. A pin created to highlight the discussion from our Whole Child Symposium event. (The link is here: [link]. During ASCD Arias Week campaign, we shared this image on Instagram. Our team travels to the ASCD Annual Conference and Exhibit Show each year. This year, we were able to capture behind-the-scenes shots of the conference on Instagram for our audience. Here , two of our authors are having some fun in the exhibit hall. 7. What’s the hardest part of your job? What can become most difficult is that I enjoy each individual channel so much—and there’s so much we can do with each one— I could easily spend a full day working on just one channel if time permitted. I’ll gear up with excitement over a new Pinterest board or Twitter chat and, with seven channels to manage, I have to remain mindful to “touch” each channel every day. I know there are seven channels and a blog that need my love and attention, so I make a concerted effort to not let myself fall down any rabbit hole for too long! 8. Give us a glimpse into the future. If budget and resources were no object, what would you love to see in terms of your association’s social media presence in 3 years? ASCD’s mission is incredible and we try our best to illustrate that over social media. But in a world with unlimited resources, I can only imagine the story we could tell. Currently, we have several study tours worldwide, conferences and institutes, and professional development services (like ASCD Professional Learning Services ) that happen far, far away from our headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. If we could somehow capture and share everything our teams were working on across the globe. wow! The ASCD staff is extremely supportive of our desire to showcase these off-site happenings on social media, but nothing would be as strong as being on location sharing the stories live and in real time over our social media channels! ASCD’s social media sites: Twitter. Facebook. Pinterest. Instagram. Google+. LinkedIn. YouTube. Inservice. Questions? Connect with Tina!

SEO Firm Impersonates Google, Claims Local Listing to be Deleted

Bill Hartzer

'During an recent unsolicited telemarketing call , a representative from an SEO firm, located in California, claimed that a company’s local business listing on Google Places (now called Google My Business ) would be taken down and deleted if they are not paid $299 to re-verify and re-boost the local listing. In a post on the Local Search Forum, Linda Buquet explains what disturbed her about the call she received from the SEO firm: I started off saying to him: The recording said my listing is in danger of being deleted or something? He said “Yes ma’am that is correct!” Since the recording said it was Google calling, but he had come right out and said it yet, I gave him an out to change it or clarify the fact he didn’t really work for Google. I said “Oh you are in San Diego, so then you don’t actually work for Google right?” He said “Google IS in San Diego!” I said “They are? So you are WITH Google?” You can clearly hear him say “Yes I am! I’m sitting at my Google desk right now.” There are, unfortunately, companies like these out there that are contacting local businesses claiming that they are, in fact, Google, and use scare tactics to get the local business to pay for something, like verifying their listing, which is free. You do not have to pay anything in order to verify and control your local listing in Google. Period. There, are, however, local search marketing companies and local search consultants, like Linda Buquet , who will help you verify your listing and optimize it so that it does show up in the search results properly. Like Linda Buquet, I also provide these consulting services, and so does the company I work for, Globe Runner. Calling companies out of the blue and telling them that their local listing in Google is going to be deleted if they don’t pay a one-time fee of $299 is outright fraudulent. It is a lie, and your company listing, if verified properly with Google, will not be deleted. The whole entire process is free, you just need to create a Google account (most likely you already have one if you have an Android device like an Android smart phone), and you need to be able to either receive a postcard in the mail at your business address or receive a phone call at your business phone number that’s listed. Calling a company and telling them that you ARE Google, and you are “sitting at your Google desk”, is outright wrong. Obviously, I welcome any official response from this SEO firm regarding this particular situation and this recorded phone call, I would love to hear their side of the story so I can objectively present it to you, my readers. I’d love to hear any representatives or owners of the SEO firm–feel free to contact me. Google Search Engines'
