Social media platforms in Social media for social enterprise story

Social media for social enterprise digital story

Thanks to everyone who got involved in my Spreading The Love presentation today, sponsored by Dewis Menter, held at Hafan Cymru, for The Enterprise Network a group of people interested in social enterprise. Here’s some of what came up in discussion:

What we love about social media platforms

  • Google+ is good for SEO (search engine optimisation)
  • Google Calender is easy to navigate
  • Facebook is good to keep in touch
  • Google+ is good for sharing documents
  • Twitter – instant, quick, short, succinct, direct conversations, global

What we hate about social media platforms

  • LinkedIn is hard to navigate
  • Google+ is confusing and hard to navigate
  • Irrelevant comments on Facebook
  • Public negative exposure on Twitter
  • Irrelevant followers on Twitter
  • Facebook, there’s no privacy, photos from years ago can resurface
  • Facebook can take over your life
  • Addiction
  • Twitter is hard to get into

Conclusions and actions

  • Checking out Pinterest for wider distribution of content.
  • Getting into Twitter by finding and following like minds that put out good content to share.
  • Using video, and apps like Splice for Android or Apple products, making it easy to edit, add music and share short video clips.
  • Using Storify to record and promote projects and activities.
  • Taking video during events and distributing via other platforms.
  • Using a blog as your electronic hub and distributing content via other social media channels.


Social media platforms, discussions at Hafan Cymru

I was asked to present on how social enterprises are using social media. To do this I used Storify, a nifty tool for telling digital stories by snagging content from social media platforms and around the web. In my story you’ll find discussion of pros and cons of social media, some juicy social media facts and some case studies to inspire you.

Miracle cures

Miracle cures

You know those ‘too good to be true’ offers you see on TV? Miracle creams that’ll eliminate wrinkles, diet pills that will help you drop 4 dress sizes, hair re-growth products that will give you Samson like locks in 2 weeks?

Deep down we know they can’t be true. Sure enough in the small print, they’ll be little weasel words and disclaimers that water down the apparent claim and allow for something other than the promised dazzling and dramatic results.

Your skin might get a bit smoother, you may lose a few pounds and you may get a little more hair on your head but that’s not what attracted our attention. You feel let down.

I feel a little like this about the Facebook Custom Audience Feature launching globally this week. It allows you to upload your contact list and put promoted posts or Facebook ads in front of your email subscribers. I spend a great deal of time educating rural businesses about the DOs and DON’Ts of email marketing and my gut reaction to this new feature was, “hang on a minute.”

So let’s take a look.

What is the new Facebook Custom Audience Feature?

This latest Facebook feature allows you to upload your email list so you can target your Facebook ads to your subscribers’ profile pages. As Mari Smith (known as Queen of Facebook) explains,

“Facebook allows you to upload your own contact list (email subscribers) to the main Ads dashboard and reach your own prospects and customers with targeted ads. Previously, this feature was only available through Power Editor.”

How does it work?

It allows you to place promoted posts in your subscribers’ newsfeeds and ads in the right hand column on Facebook.

Check out the small print for yourself, Facebook Custom Audience Feature.

Anticipating the howls about privacy and opt in, Facebook says it will encrypt the email addresses and the data won’t be used to send marketing emails from Facebook or other 3rd parties. It also promises to delete the contact data once the matching process is complete.

So why should you worry? Isn’t this a great new marketing feature?

Why should you be cautious before using this feature?

There are 3 areas that concern me:

1. Email subscribers’ expectations

2. Wise use of advertising dollars?

3. Keeping track of unsubscribes in your Facebook Custom Audience

1. Email subscribers’ expectations

My first and main concern is, using my subscribers’ email addresses to place promoted posts or ads on their Facebook profile is not sticking to the spirit of the contract between me, the marketer and my subscriber.

Each subscriber gave me a contact email address so that I can send direct marketing messages to her inbox. There was no permission to use that data to track her down on third party sites. Using this feature feels like ambushing her.

Email marketing is bound by rules regarding opt in. Those rules act as a form of contract between you and the people who ‘opt’ to join your list. Your subscribers. Email marketing’s success relies on building a strong relationship with your subscribers. If they know, like and trust you, it is far easier for them to buy from you. I’m concerned that using email data in this way will undermine that relationship.

A recent study reported on All Twitter,  found that

“71% of social media participants say they are more likely to purchase from a brand they follow online”.

This is an argument for being active and engaging on your chosen social media platform by producing good, well targeted content. You do this by understanding your audience. In my opinion, it is not an argument to ambush email subscribers by using their private information to hunt them down on third party sites.

Of course when I search You Tube or Google I will see ads. These ads will be targeted based on past searches. Whether we find this helpful or annoying or amusing (depending on our mood and the ads), it is fundamentally different from the Facebook Custom Audience feature. Google uses your search history to place the most relevant adverts in front of you. I accept this as part of the price I pay for free search. There is no such reciprocal arrangement between your subscriber and Facebook.

Using the Facebook Custom Audience feature feels more like using someone’s email address to track down their phone number and then calling them during dinner. It’s not what your subscribers expect you to do with their email address. For those who dismiss this objection as unimportant, let’s look at another more commercial objection. What about good use of resources?

2. Wise use of advertising dollars?

Why pay more to advertise to people who are already engaged with you and have given you permission to send them direct email messages? There are many studies that show email marketing is considered effective by marketers. In the UK, a Direct Marketing Association report found that

90% of respondents rating it as strategically important or very important to their businesses, while 63% expect to increase expenditure on email marketing in the future.”

Getting people to subscribe to your list is a key step to getting engagement and buy in to your ideas, products and services. To then place ads, however personalised, in front of them on Facebook would seem at the least intrusive and at worst a waste of advertising dollars.

Wouldn’t it be better to put more resources into your email marketing rather than risk paying Facebook to possibly irritate and alienate your subscribers? What if the irritation you caused by showing up uninvited on Facebook, led them to unsubscribe next time you send a marketing email? Is it worth the risk?

And finally if you do use it, how will you make sure you don’t forget to remove subscribers from your Facebook Custom Audience who unsubscribe from your main list?

3. Keeping track of unsubscribes in your Facebook Custom Audience

In the UK, if you want to send marketing emails to people who’ve enquired with your company, you can use soft opt in as long as certain conditions are met, including:

 “where the person is given a simple opportunity to refuse marketing when their details are collected, and if they don’t opt out at this point, are given a simple way to do so in future messages.”

That simple way to opt out is the UNSUBSCRIBE button that is automatically added to campaigns by programmes like MailChimp. When someone hits unsubscribe, MailChimp automatically ensures no further emails are sent to that email address. So you don’t have to worry.

How will you remember to remove them from your Facebook Custom Audience data? It’s safe to assume they left your email list because they don’t want to hear from you anymore. I can’t imagine theyd be thrilled to find you pitching to them on their Facebook profile.

I know you want to see this is a great opportunity.

Isn’t it good marketing practice to reach your audience through every possible channel?

I don’t have an argument with engaging with your audience through any channel where they are (legally) active. You can do that in a number of ways. Indeed using your email marketing to highlight activity on e.g. Your Facebook Page is a good idea. But the Facebook Custom Audience is about strong arming your marketing messages onto your subscribers’ Facebook without explicit consent.

So, for me, I question 1) whether you’re meeting your subscribers expectations by using the Facebook Custom Feature, 2) whether it’s a wise use of advertising dollars and 3) if you do go ahead, how will you make sure unsubscribes are removed from your Facebook data list?

Like those miracle creams it sounds amazing that you can market to your subscribers on Facebook, but when you look at the fine detail, it could well leave you (and more importantly) your subscribers feeling let down.

What do you think about this new feature?

The Perfect Facebook Post: What The Experts Know | Social Media Today.

Some great advice here that is also relevant to bloggers. Regarding images, Social Media today suggests,

“When originally saving your image to the desktop, utilize keywords and location within the image. For example, if you are selling Arginine Supplements in Phoenix, Arizona, your image needs to be saved as exactly that – “arginine supplements_Phoenix, Arizona.” Drop of the “.jpg” or “.png” as well. In my experience, it also benefits your website to save the image as the actual URL of your website. For example, if Linwright Design were saving an image, I’d save it as “LinwrightDesign.com_Gilbert, Arizona.”

It’s easy to think of images as just icing on your posts or status updates. This good advice from Social Media Today, reminds us to make their backsides (as it were) appeal to those lovely search engine robots. It’s not just what’s in the image, but it’s vital statistics that matter.

Why rural businesses should think about cooling things with Facebook

Is it time to look for a more discerning audience?

Facebook is changing. Should you review your use of it as a marketing tool?

A tourism business I was working with today is dismayed about Facebook reducing the visibility of feeds from business pages like hers. Now to get visibility you have to either try and understand the new algorithm and work out how to increase the edgerank of your posts or bite the bullet and give Facebook some dosh to promote your stories or advertise your business.

Is it time to say goodbye to Facebook?

Facebook is a business, like any other, and can’t be blamed for wanting to monetize the gigantic quantity of content its users generate every second. So while Facebook experts will no doubt find ways to help us all navigate the new parameters, maybe there is a wider issue to consider.

The latest changes on Facebook made me think about the content we all publish. Original photos, articles, videos or even collections of links or pin boards that many rural and farm businesses create are highly valuable. Is it time to withdraw our services as unpaid authors and photographers?

By posting original content to Facebook you share it but also lose control of it.

If Facebook disappeared tomorrow, where would all that information go? Unless you back up every post or use a site like Archive Book, your posts are lost for ever.

Maybe it’s time to reduce the resources you put into Facebook

Rather than cut all ties with this phenomenally powerful networking platform, I think it is time to review the relationship. When I talk to graduates about using social media for career development, I often recommend creating an electronic hub or e-hub. A central place for all your original content (backed up to your hard drive). The best way to do that is to set up a blog. Blogger and WordPress are just two sites that offer free blogs.

Here you can post all your original content, then set up automated posts to Facebook and Twitter to promote the new content. There’s a kind of sweet justice:  if Facebook wants to charge businesses to promote content, then perhaps you should withdraw your services of providing free, original content. Why not save it for a more deserving audience?

Without control of data and contacts your online relationships are vulnerable

I’ve been concerned for some time, that social media platforms collect contact information without sharing those precious email addresses with us the users.

At my Email Marketing Workshops, I often cite the fact that on social media sites, you have no access to the actual email addresses of your fans, followers or contacts. Whereas if you encourage people to sign up to your email list, they freely give you their email address and you can contact them directly even if the online platforms disappear.

So by all means continue to use Facebook but take control of your original content by publishing it to your own platform. Encourage friends and followers to subscribe to your email list by including an email sign up form on every platform.

I see social media sites as a good place to publicise your content, using specific keywords to attract followers who are looking for businesses like yours. Post snippets with links to your photos, videos or articles. Comments and status updates are fine but perhaps we should be a little more choosy over where we publish our unique, valuable content. The valuable comments and engagment you get from followers and fans can easily be streamed to your blog (or website), so that it is contributing to the content on your e-hub.

A more sustainable, long term response is to build a more engaged tribe elsewhere. Liking pages is an easy low commitment action. Signing up to a blog shows a little more interest. Whereas subscribing to an email list is a definite, “I want to hear about your business.” In the end, aren’t those the “fans” you want to engage? As a rural or farm business, you only have so many hours in a day. How many of them do you want to spend producing free content for shareholders of a company that doesn’t pay tax in the UK?

My 1199 tweets since October 2011

Having found this cool Twitter app, TwimeMachine, that downloads your Twitter timeline, I wanted to share my Twitter journey with you. So here they are, my tweets since October 2011. If any of the links catch your eye, they’re not live, but you can always copy and paste into your browser (positively stone age I know!).

So what has Twitter done for me?

I use Twitter for learning, development, networking and selling. In hard figures, it’s brought me training and writing opportunities which have translated into about 25% of my income over this period.

It’s also brought me into contact with a feisty group of business people in the Llandysul area and like minded small farmers in West Wales and across the world. It allows me to stay in touch with delegates and clients in an informal way which provides new opportunities for us all.

See how I use Twitter by following me on Twitter and subscribe to my e-news to get updates on workshops and articles on marketing for rural businesses roughly twice a month.

3 mistakes to avoid when using Twitter for Career Development

 Twitter  Comments Off on 3 mistakes to avoid when using Twitter for Career Development
Apr 242012

Simon Cowell of X Factor fame, is well aware of the pitfalls of celebrity right now. After years of thrusting unsuspecting members of the public into the limelight where some were savaged by the tabloid press, he is now getting a taste of his own medicine. An unauthorised biography has been seized upon by those same journalists because it contains heaps of tawdry titbits.

Celebrity is a powerful drug but it can turn round and bite even the most experienced stars.

For lesser mortals, Twitter is a powerful tool that can help you develop strong networks to promote your career. But just as Simon Cowell found out recently, there are pitfalls for the unwary, being in the public eye.

We’re going to look at 3 of the biggest hazards. They are:

1) It’s a public broadcast, there’s no delete button

2) Using text speak, slang or swearing will alienate people you want to attract

3) Mixing work and play can be playing with fire

Let’s take the first one.

1) It’s a public broadcast, there is no delete button

Twitter is a public medium. The only tweets that are not visible to the Twitter world are direct messages and private twitter accounts (which are rare). We can set them aside for now.

The whole point of Twitter is that it is a stream of live information that you and every Twitter user can dip into. Every tweet you post can be seen, re-tweeted and replied to. Not just by your followers but by everyone. The other problem is, you can’t take a post back. Once it’s out there, you can’t recall it and you can’t erase any responses or re-tweets.

If, let’s say, you hope to work as a marketing consultant for a blue chip company like British Telecom, you might want to take your rants about their poor service to a private platform.

“I’m afraid to tweet anything now”

You don’t need to be afraid and you don’t need to hide your personality completely. A simple test is, how would you feel if this tweet was on the front page of Western Mail?

Another yardstick is, don’t tweet anything you wouldn’t want your mother to read. Which means you wouldn’t fill your tweets with f**k this and f**k that, would you?

2) Using text speak, slang or swearing will alienate people you want to attract

Text abbreviations have crept into Facebook, Twitter and even email. It’s easy to understand why. It’s quicker. With Twitter’s 140 character limit, it’s particularly tempting to abbreviate words to fit them in. That’s fine if you are only trying to network with others who use and understand abbreviations like lol.

But do your potential employers, leaders in your field and business people use and understand that language? If not, then avoid using it on Twitter. You want to be taken seriously by people that can help you develop your career, so use a language you all share.

Slang and swearing not only make your tweets hard to understand, they can offend. Even seasoned professionals seem to like to vent on Twitter. I’ve noticed several freelance journalists who state in their biography that they write for a national newspaper but the tweets are their own. They then express strong opinions, peppered with profanities. This isn’t going to help them get hired to write (it might get them on Newsnight I suppose).

“I thought you should ‘be yourself’ on social media networks?”

Yes, but which self? Most of us already adapt our tone and language depending who we’re talking to. Do you speak to your grand mother the same way you talk to your friends? Would you go into an interview swearing and using slang?

If you want to use Twitter as a tool for career development, put your workplace head on when you’re tweeting. Need more examples? Follow people in the industry you’re pursuing. Take your lead from how they use Twitter and mind your language. That leads on to how much we tweet about our social life.

3) Mixing work and play can be playing with fire

If you just use Twitter to keep in touch with friends then of course you will be tweeting about your social life. Unlike Facebook, where you can confine views of your posts to friends or friends of friends, Twitter is public.

If you want to attract the attention of potential employers, or business partners, you need to assume that they will do their homework and check out your public profiles online, including Twitter. That means they’re going to hear all about the things you share with your friends. There’s no filter on Twitter (unless you make your entire account private, but this defeats the purpose of using Twitter).

So one suggestion is to set up a new Twitter account you can use as a career development tool or change the way you use your existing account. Network with close friends elsewhere, on Facebook or Google+.

For example, if you tweet how fed up you are about job hunting, it might make you feel better but doesn’t look good to potential employers. Likewise telling the world about your pursuit of a girl or boy who you’ve fallen in love with would be good material for a short story but unless your ambition is to be a writer, keep it for a private platform.

“So am I supposed to censor all tweets about my social life?”

Not all of them, no. You need to apply a “work filter” to anything you want to say about Friday or Saturday night. If you were in the office talking to colleagues and your boss about the weekend, what would you say?

If you don’t want a career in politics, then leave strong political opinions for more private conversations. Unless you want to be a music critic, don’t give a blow by blow account of every music purchase for your iTunes library.

On the other hand, if you’re doing a sky dive for charity, or you take photos for your local football team, then these activities give you plus points in the eyes of the world of work. You’d add these activities to your CV because it shows personal qualities that are attractive to potential employers.

So remember 3 easy rules for what to say (or not to say)

1. If you wouldn’t want to see it on the front page of the local newspaper, don’t tweet it.

2. If you wouldn’t use that word in a job interview, don’t put it in a tweet.

3. If you’d add it to your CV, tweet about it.

Twitter is a powerful networking tool but there are pitfalls to avoid. Remember, every Tweet is a public broadcast with no delete button, avoid using text speak, slang or swear words and use a “work filter” when mixing tweets about work and play.

Even the most powerful media manipulators like Simon Cowell can get tripped up by the glare of the limelight. Twitter gives you the opportunity to connect with people all over the world and could take your career in directions you never imagined, but be wary. Watch out for pitfalls and keep your public image clean and appealing to those you want to connect with.
